How to make dryer sheets.

created on: 02/28/08

I’m running low on dryer sheets, but with all these recipes to make my own, I'll never have to buy them again!

Recipe #1: Put liquid fabric softener into an old, cleaned spray bottle. Spray 4 to 6 sprays on a rag and tumble with clothes in dryer as ususal. Wash the rag now and then to remove buildup.

Recipe #2: Mix 1 cup fabric softener with 2 cups water in spray bottle. Spray 4 to 6 sprays on a rag and tumble with clothes in dryer as ususal. Wash the rag now and then to remove buildup.

Recipe #3: Mix 1 part hair conditioner and 1 part water in spray bottle. Spray 4 to 6 sprays on a rag and tumble with clothes in dryer as ususal. Wash the rag now and then to remove buildup.

Recipe #4: Fill spray bottle with vinegar. You can add a few drops of essential oil to the vinegar if desired. Spray 4 to 6 sprays on a rag and tumble with clothes in dryer as ususal. Wash the rag now and then to remove buildup.

Recipe #5: Soak an old washcloth in liquid fabric softener. Ring out excess softener and then lie flat to dry. Toss dried cloth in dryer as needed. You’ll be able to reuse your cloth about 12 times before you’ll need to wash the cloth and re-soak in fabric softener.

Vegan....that's a really good idea!

Woo! I'm thinking of taking the recipe from your "How to Make Your Own Fabric Softener" post and combining it with #1, #2 or #5... I'll be trying it out when my vegan dryer cloths run out.

Yeah, that's what I've been hearing. I also just found out that the majority contain animal tallow too. (Ick!)

Dryer sheets bought at the store are super bad for health & the environment... DIY, or even the re-usable ones you can get at REAL GOODS are way cheaper and better ! :)
