How to Make a Dryer Sheet Dispenser

Updated on April 7, 2017

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!

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.

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
