    Default Dryer Sheets

    If you run out... you can use aluminum foil instead.

    And if you have a stockpile of dryer sheets.... you can use them in your hamper/laundry baskets to help deodarize. You can also use dryer sheets to help with frizzy hair! I'm serious, it works!

    I use sponges soaked in softener, so that I can reuse them over and over. But I dont' think that I have ever heard of aluminum foil before. Wouldn't it get hot and fall to pieces in the dryer. I know that it's made to handle heat, but I was thinking that being thrown around with the clothes would make it fall apart or something.

    When I seen this post it clicked that somewhere I had read this same information that you could use foil in your dryer. Now I am trying to rack my brain to figure out where I saw it so I can determine if it was a reliable source or not.

    The foil does something to prevent the static electricity buildup it doesn't hurt your dryer and it doesn't crumble up or break up.

    I don't think it does-not like metal buttons or zippers on some clothes.
