Downy Wrinkle Release?- Laundry~Detergents~More

    Question Downy Wrinkle Release?

    Hey All!
    Does anyone have a recipe that would work like the Downy Wrinkle Release? I hate ironing and I use this stuff quite frequently.
    Also, any good ways on how to cut down on using dryer sheets/fabric softener? I re-use the dryer sheets 2-3 times but DH thinks it's disgusting...don't understand why. Do you think if I cut them in half, it would still work the same? That way, I don't have to re-use them.
    Thanks.

    Michelle

    I brought the Downy wrinkle release one time and it worked great, but I found a recipe for the same on one of the forum threads. I just mix about 3-5 tbs. liqid fabric softner in a bottle and fill the rest with water. Shake before using and spray. The fabric softner relaxes the fibers. Works great!

    if you put 1/2 cup of vinagar in the fabric softner of the washer you wont need the sheets. it leaves a clean perfume free scent. it has antibacteria properties and it keeps lint from sticking to the material. a gallon of it is 3 times as cheap as sheets.

    I send away for the free samples of fabric softener and I put a tiny (half a dime size) drop on a damp washcloth when I throw the clothes in the dryer. It works Great as a Homemade dryer sheet and 1 little sample bottle lasts more than a month doing an average of 2-3 loads of laundry a Day.
    ~Enjoy!~
