Homemade Dryer Sheets

5 Comments


I have heard so much about these and so many people are using the Tupperware containers to store them in that we can’t keep them in stock.  They are using the container with a neat lift out center to keep the liquid in the bottom for reuse.  I found a blog on another site with another great way to recycle flannel shirts and make them.

Homemade Dryer Sheets // Clean Living

I’ve heard from multiple friends how I should start creating my own laundry detergent (which trust me, it’s coming in the near future of clean living), but I hadn’t heard of anyone creating their own dryer sheets, so I looked to my good ole pal, Google, for some tricks and tips. I came to find, much like a lot of clean living recipes, that it’s easy as pie. I was definitely skeptical with the main ingredient being vinegar (cause we all know that’s a lovely smell..), but I was so happy with the result. Here’s how it’s done:
Supplies:
 Flannel fabric
1/2 cup vinegar
15 drops essential oil
Combine the vinegar and essential oil (I used lavender) into a small bowl and mix well. Next, cut the flannel into small 5×5 inch squares. Soak each square in the liquid mix, and lay them out to dry on an old towel. Once they have dried, store them in a sealed container. The vinegar smell will be strong at first, but once it’s gone through the dryer cycle the harsh odor will disappear and leave a fresh, clean scent. What I love about this is how soft the lavender scent is, not overwhelming in the slightest. Plus, the flannel is recyclable, so you’re doing mother nature a favor, as well your wallet. Sometimes, we all win. I’m okay with that.
