Better Dryer Sheets
I have discovered a homemade dryer sheet that is the best I have used, even better than store bought. I have tried many homemade items. Sometimes they work just as well as store bought, or not as well but worth the money that you save.
This one is even better. I love it. I saw it many months ago on a blog. I really apologize, I don’t remember which one. I started using this method about 3 weeks ago. Even Mr. Picky(my husband) loves the results.
Here are the ingredients: Fabric softener, water and wash clothes. I know your thinking well you are still using store bought. Yes, but it is going 2x as far as before. What I do is, pour any amount into this container and then use that much water. So, a 2:1 Ratio.
I then drop a washcloth into the mixture wring it mostly out and throw it into the dryer with the wet clothes. After, wringing out the cloth my hands have stuff on them so I use a second cloth and wipe them and throw that in as well. I just keep using the same cloths for several washes.
This method appealed to me because our washer does not have an easy way to figure out when to use softener. I love the way clothes with liquid softener feel and now I have it with the convenience of the “sheets”.
