How to Make a Dryer Sheet Dispenser

Updated on September 15, 2014

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?!

Finished Result...

It took about 20 minutes for this project, the end result is awesome!

Are you going to install a dryer sheet dispenser?

      Pretty cool idea but my old farmhouse has horsehair plaster walls. I don't drill through them for anything!

      Not sure. We don't tend to use dryer sheets. If you do it may be on a trial basis.

      Oh, this would be awesome! Then I could stop being smacked in the head by the box when I pull a dryer sheet out. Right now I keep them in the cabinet over the washing machine.

      I hardly use the dryer sheets, but I am sure the wall mounted dispense is a great idea
