DIY Dryer Sheets (One of my #ProudestDIY projects )

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.

    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!
