How to Make Dryer Sheets
Since I started making my own laundry detergent I haven't had the need for some leftover fabric softener that I bought on sale with a coupon a few months ago. I was looking for ways to use this, waste not want not. I thought about the fact that I was almost out of dryer sheets.
I did some research and came up with this great way to make homemade dryer sheet to solve two problems at once.

Needed Items for Dryer Sheet
I am really only making on sheet that I will reuse many, many times.
- microfiber washcloth or a thick, absorbent one
- fabric softener
- a bowl
- pants hanger
How to make Dryer Sheet
In a bowl pour about a half cup of fabric softener. Place the washcloth into the bowl and soak up the fabric softener until the entire surface is covered with the liquid. You may need to add more softener to the bowl. Hang the washcloth using the pants hanger to dry.
I had to let mine dry for two days, the first day I loosely hung a plastic bag around it so that it wouldn't drip. The second day I took the bag off and just let it finish drying.
Once it is completely dry it was ready for use. I put it in the dryer with a load of wet clothing. I have used it for over 15 loads so far and it seems to be doing its job wonderfully.
