Tear Dryer Sheets in half? Still effective?

What household products can be extended to stretch your dollar? I.e. diluting shampoo with water?

    I always cut my dryer sheets in half. Not sure if you should add water to your shampoo since most of it is water in the first place.

    Tennis Balls work just as good as dryer sheets. I put about 5 or 6 used ones (bought at Rummage cheep) and they do the same thing..
  • I do not use dryer sheets, I use felted wool dryer balls. No fabric softener needed. I put white vinegar in the fabric softener cup instead. There you go, 2 more products you do not have to purchase. Vinegar is cheap, $2 a gallon at Costco, Sam's club or restaurant supply stres.

    Use an old fashioned dust mop and wet mop instead of purchasing Swiffer's etc. Lay paper towels that you have just used to dry hands and similar on a place on your counter - when you need to wipe up dirt on the floor grab your "pile" . Store brand / dollar store. Use the cheap laundry detergent on your not so dirty clothes, save the good stuff for your really dirty clothing. Decant the large bottles into smaller ones, so you don't waste. Kitchen hand soap, buy the large one (store brand ) from Walmart, decant into smaller pumps at your sinks.
