How To - Make Your Own Dryer Sheets

Good Morning Friends,
Did you know you can make your own dryer sheets.  Oh yes you can!!! 

Take a spray bottle.  In it mix 1/2 cup liquid fabric softener and 1 cup water.  Spray mist an old washcloth, or an old towel that has been cut up into rags.  Put the washcloth into the dryer with your clothes.  Just shake the bottle to mix the contents and remist the washcloth for each dryer load being sure to shake the spray bottle before each application. 

What a savings!  Just be sure to take a Sharpie marker and label the spray bottle with its contents.

Friends, if you are enjoying How To Homemaker, would you please let others know I am here on the web.  I would so appreciate it.  You can let others know by placing How To Homemaker on your blog roll, you can grab my button for your blog or you can mention me in a blog post with a link.  If you do any of these things, please let me know and I will be most happy to do the same for you!  Your sites for me to link to or for me to mention in one of my blog posts MUST be family friendly.  Either leave a comment here or send me an e-mail to basketmaster_nancy(at)yahoo(dot)com
Blessings,
Nancy

Hi, Nancy! I just found you from the 40 and Over Follow Friday, and I'm glad I did. This is the sort of stuff that I'm interested in! In fact, I'd been wondering how to go about making my own dryer sheets recently... I just hadn't taken the time to look it up.

Will be a new follower will be happy to add your button to my blog. :-) I'm over at Hiccups In Time. It's nice to have come across you. :-)

does it do anything for static by doing this?

CK said...

Oh my goodness, this is so great! I never buy dryer sheets (because they cost too much), so this will be perfect for me to try out!

Mommy Shorts said...

Thank you so much for the practical tip. Can't wait to read more. Happy Sits day!

Mary said...

I am so going to do the dryer sheet thing! and I am going to read your entire blog to see what other tricks you have up your sleeve. I found you at the SITS "fantastic blogger" day!!! I "followed" your blog, and I'm going to add you to my blog roll so I can keep up with you! Thanks for sharing with us.

Kristi said...

Wow, that seems super easy. We've been forsaking dryer cloths to save money and just putting up with the static. This is a good alternative.

Jacki said...

Wow thanks for the info. This will save us tons and so much better for the environment.

The Lucky Wife @ The Saturday Evening Pot said...

I love this idea! Sending you an email shortly!

Lindsay said...

Love this tip! Thanks for sharing, you have just saved me a lot of money, and taught me another way to help re-use. Visiting from SITS, happy feature day!

Stephanie the PW said...

LOVE this tip!!!! Congrats on your SITS day - hope you're enjoying all the love :)

play101 said...

What a great tip! I knew about putting a damp washcloth in with clothes that are wrinkled in the dryer (as in, I didn't take them out in time). The dampness will help get out a lot of those wrinkles. But I never thought of spraying it with your half-and-half mixture -- I'll have to give it a try!

Janet White said...

Such a neat tip, thank you.

deborahjbarker said...

Hi Nancy,

I haven't used dryer sheets for some time (I forget to buy them) but if I can make them so easily then I will. I would be happy to add you to my blogroll and would love it if you could add me to yours.

I am now off to read more....

LaVonne @ Long Wait said...

Will this stop the static too? Thanks for sharing this. It is so simple!
