So, today I am sharing this updated version of Homemade Dryer Sheets for your consideration. I decided to start with dishrags I already had on hand in my stash. I happened to have just enough Gain Fabric Softener left in the bottle to make this work. I thoroughly soaked the dishrags in a bowl of full strength fabric softener. Donâ€™t worry about measuring, you can always pour what you donâ€™t use back in the bottle. You can also use whatever kind of fabric softener you want.
Allow the towels to dry THOROUGHLY! I took mine outside and fashioned a makeshift clothesline using some rope and a few clothespins. Even in this humid and dry state of Louisiana that I live inâ€¦they took awhile to dry COMPLETELY. After all the rags are completely dry, I like to store them in pretty container on the counter of my laundry room. They look nice and are easily accessible!
Throw one sheet in with a load of clothes. I use them over and over and over before they need to be dipped and dried again. AT LEAST 30 or 40 times each. I have to say I am VERY pleased with the results of using this new method. Clothes are VERY soft and VERY nice smelling! But MORE importantly (and the MAIN reason I use fabric softener) NO STATIC CLING! It is definitely one of my FAVORITE homemade laundry alternatives, right behind my Homemade Laundry Detergent.
