DIY Reusable Dryer Sheets
Make your own reusable dryer sheets from all-natural ingredients and reap the benefits of saving money and having fresh-smelling laundry.
Yield: 6 cleaning cloths
- 6-8 inch squares of cloth dishcloths, flour sack towels, old t-shirts, etc.
- 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
- 20 drops essential oils - mix of lavender mint, tea tree
Mix vinegar and essential oils in a container. Shake well.
Add the cloths to the container and let them absorb the liquid.
Squeeze out the excess liquid and place the cloths in another airtight container.
Add one cloth to each dryer load.
After they have been used (and dried) the cloths can simply dipped into the vinegar solution again and the process repeated. The cloths can be periodically washed, if needed. SO easy and inexpensive! They don't prevent static cling, but they do help soften the clothes, and the oils help them smell extra fresh and clean without being overpowering. (For static cling, I've heard aluminum foil balls really do the trick.)
Since these contain water, they will eventually start to mold despite all the antibacterial agents. Store them in the refrigerator for up to 2 months or until you start to mold or bacterial growth or any kind.
