How to Make Your Own Dryer Sheets?

I am not sure how to make the actual sheets but I take liquid fabric softner and dilute it with water and put it into a spray bottle! Then I spray a clean cloth with it and put that into the dryer with the clothes! The cloth can be used again and again! Amanda

    I have heard that you can dilute GOOD liquid fabric softener with equal
    water in a baby wipes type container, and cut a sponge in half. Dip the
    sponge in, squeeze until just damp and throw in the dryer as you would a
    dryer sheet. I haven't tried it yet, but plan to.

    Not as frugal as making your own,
    but buy dryer sheets on sale and with coupons, and cut them in half
    as soon as you get home. Then use 1/2 sheet per load. It does the
    job of cutting out the static electricity.

    One suggestion that I have recently read was to get liquid fabric softener
    and spray an obvious rag and toss it in the dryer and wash after every few
    loads or so to get out the build up.

    I have also read that aluminum foil will take care of the static from the
    dryer if you toss a piece in with your clothes. I hesitate to try this one
    since it can damage delicate clothes.

    Also when you do buy dryer sheets cut them in half and you will get twice as
    many out of the box and they work just as well.

    Hi Tammy, I don't know about making dryer sheets but when I
    am out of dryer sheets I put some liquid fabric softener on a
    rag or wash cloth and throw that in the dryer with the clothes.
    Blessings, Pat

    I use small scraps of flannel, simply serge or zig-zag stitch the raw
    edges. We keep a small spray bottle and use a 1/2 water (distilled since
    we live in a high calcium/lime environment) and 1/2 fabric softener.
    Spray the small cloth with the mixture and toss into the dryer, can be
    reused over and over and over. We have only bought 1 bottle of fabric
    softener per year since doing this. But we only do an average of 4-5
    loads a week, there are only two of us, well four if you count the cats.

    BB,

    That is what I do and it works great.
    I may try the spray bottle method because of evaporation, but for now
    we use a halved sponge.

    I use the downy ball in the washer with 2 tblsps of hair conditioner in it.
    Or an old washcloth with a tblsp of conditioner rub into it and thrown into dryer. Works as well as fabric sheets or liquid softener, plus cheaper, can always find conditioner on sale and coupons.
