DIY Dryer Sheets (One of my #ProudestDIY projects )

09.25.14
A while back I experimented with something when I ran out of dryer sheets. I did not have any coupons and I was NOT going to pay full price for dryer sheets. So out of this need came this idea.It is so easy to dip, dry and use over and over! This has saved me lots of money as I do NOT buy fabric softer sheets anymore!

    Actually, a damp wash cloth with small amount of hair conditioner works, too!

    I have one also - use 1 fabric softner add to a gallon of water in a lidded container, throw in clean sponges. Ring out sponge toss in dryer with clothes. Will last you a year for 1 bottle of fabric softner. More DIY tips and recipes here too . Home

    I use dryer balls. Or a wash cloth with some vinegar poured onto it and pop in the dryer.

      Jean Meyer Straight white vinegar. Poor in the dispenser of the washing machine. So cheap and it works perfectly!

      Carolyn Doherty be careful of the vinegar spilling if you have a front loading machine. The vinegar ate through the door hinges and I had to replace them.

    I don't use dryer sheets either. If you leave them in the dryer, they can stain certain fabrics. I had this happen to dress shirts and they were ruined by the dryer sheets. I do make my own fabric softener, however, using vinegar, (hair) conditioner, and

    @Amy Nelson I use 6 cups hot water, 2 cups conditioner. Mix well, then add 2 cups white vinegar. There are lots of conditioners that smell so great and are quite inexpensive. I get mine at a dollar store!
