Helpful Laundry Tip
I found this to be very useful but I haven't tried it yet as I pretty much don't use dryer sheets anymore but thought this was a neat idea.
NEVER BUY DRYER SHEETS AGAIN!!!
SUPER simple tip ..works great and saves you A LOT of $$$$!!
A container with an airtight lid (I use a 2QT food storage bowl w/screw on lid)
4-6 sponges (I use small, thin, cheap ones)
NOTE: You can also use cloths sheets too as I have them available so I will try these first
2 cups fabric softener (any brand/’flavor’)
4-5 cups water
Gently stir fabric softener and water together in container ..add sponges and put on lid to leave soak.
To Use: squeeze out 1 sponge and put it in the dryer with your load of wet clothes ..when clothes are dry, put the sponge back into the container of mix.
Results: EXACTLY the same as using the expensive dryer sheets that get thrown away!!!!!
Refill container as needed ..but that won’t be very often at all …MAYBE twice a year or less!!!
NOTE: If you use a smaller container ….just make as much mix as needed to fill it …it’s basically 1 cup softener to 2 cups water (a little extra water doesn’t hurt)
My total cost: $5 ………sponges $3 (2/$1) ..container $1 ..fabric softener $1 (ALL purchased at Dollar Tree if you want to get your supplies there)
