How to Make a Dryer Sheet Dispenser
After looking at hundreds of posh laundry rooms on Pinterest & then remodeling my own I learned an interesting fact...dry sheet dispensers don't exist! How can this be with so many swanky laundry rooms out there now? So being the stubborn person I am I decided to make one myself....or rather re-purpose something else that would work.
You'll find 2 options here...one is a wall install & the other is a just hands on the dryer version. I of course, went with the wall install since I'm married to a handyman.
Option 1 Wall Mounted
This is what I used, it's a hotel grade tissue dispenser with a chrome finish. You simply need to cut a hole between the studs & it mounts in minutes. I put 2 small wood blocks (off to the sides) in mine to keep the dryer sheets in place. For around $20 you can have a cool feature in your laundry room that the neighbors most definitely won't have.
Option 2...The Classic
Yes this is just a standard tissue box holder, but if your looking for a little swank without cutting a hole in your wall this will do the job. I recommend keeping an old tissue box & filling it with dryer sheets...the dryer sheet boxes are a non standard shape & won't fit unless you buy the smaller sized boxes.
Oddly enough this actually costs 3 times more than the built in...figures it's simpler.
How it looks without the cover
Do they think we can just pull a dryer sheet out of the box? What are we Animals?!
It took about 20 minutes for this project, the end result is awesome!
Fabric Softener Sheet Box Holder
This one is a good alternative to drilling holes and stainless steel, it can be mounted in a cabinet to hide it or right on the wall. This was the only dryer sheet box holder/dispenser that I was able to find on the internet. It's a simple plastic device with appropriate cut-outs to pull the dryer sheets out for use. It is made to mount on the wall and there are two small screw holes in the back, but no hardware is included with the holder; instead, two adhesive tabs are included. I don't like adhering things to my walls, so I found two small screws to use instead.
