Casa Quickie: DIY Fabric Sheets

Instead of buying a box of disposable dryer sheets, make your own! Just take an old kitchen towel and soak it with liquid fabric softener. Wring it out, let it dry, then throw it in with your laundry the next time you dry some clothing. This "fabric sheet" will be good for at least 40 loads of wash!

i started using dryer balls instead of dryer sheets about a year ago and i love them- i have found that the odd time i now encounter something dried with a dryer sheet it feels slimy to me. you get the odd bit of static in the winter but your towels and bathmats and so on come out amazingly fluffy- and no chemicals!

I've heard this before, but never done it. Like cfoley, I am also a bit skeptical, yet willing to try. Gracias por el consejo. :roygbv:

I recently purchased some biodegradable dryer sheets at walmart and they are amazing. They were actually the cheapest ones they had and they smell really good. They are more of a paper like consistency.

I've heard of this before, but it never clicked that this would be a good way to reduce waste.

What a great idea! I have one of those HE washers & somehow it makes the liquid fabric softener leave big spots on our clothing, so I had to switch to dryer sheets. Of course, I have a huge bottle of the stuff & I was about to get rid of it. ...about 40 uses from it, huh? It will take me forever to use that jumbo jug of fabric softener up! Oh well, with that I my brand new big box of dryer sheets, I shouldn't have to buy any of those things for at least a year!
