Dryer Sheets

I've been using my for a little over 2 weeks now. I'm thrilled with how easy it is and how much I'm saving!

As most people, I also use a third item in the wash/dry cycle. Dryer sheets. Now, that I've made the first two items, this is by far the easiest step of all! Ready?

1. Choose what item you'd like to have in your dryer. I've seen some suggestions like sponges (this scares me - I'm afraid they'd break apart in the dryer) or an old washcloth. I chose to use an old flannel sheet that I was going to toss because it had some holes in it. You could also use an old flannel receiving blanket.

2. Cut the fabric into strips. I made mine 5 in x 6 in. Don't forget to stitch the edges so they don't become frayed.

3. Take the fabric softener we've already made and put some into whatever container you've chosen: empty baby wipes container, mason jar, or just any old container with a lid.

4. Put wipes into container and let soak before throwing one (partially wrung out) into the dryer with your wet clothes.

There you go! You've got homemade dryer sheets!
