DIY Dryer Sheets (One of my #ProudestDIY projects )

68,939 Views
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!

    The fabric softener takes out electricity and smells good but, doesen't using vinegar make the clothes smell like vinegar? Ok, the smell is fine. What about static electricity? I'm just going to try it and find out. Thanks RuthM...And Heather!

    No I use vinegar when I hand wash things like sweaters and there is no smell of vinegar when the clothes are dry

    Great idea, and you can color-coordinate your softener sheets!!! ;)

    I've used a similar idea for over thirty years now. Only I put fabric softener in a garden spray bottle and spray the wash clothes. No need to hang to dry before use either. I just crinkle them to rub it in before tossing it in the dryer on top of the clothing. For the first few days you have to spray every other load, but after that you don't have to respray for a month or more. I think I've only used a hand full of bottles of softener in the last three decades. I still have the very first wash cloth I started with too. I never heard of using vinegar as a fabric softener, but I can't stand the smell so I wouldn't be able to tolerate using it even if it didn't make the clothes smell like it.
