How to Make Your Own Dryer Sheets
Grab your rags, vinegar, essential oils, water, and a mason jar and let’s get started.
First, cut your towels, t-shirts, rags or whatever fabric you are using into pieces about the size of regular dryer sheets.
Then, in the mason jar, mix 3/4 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup water, a few drops of your essential oils. I prefer to use lavender oils, but you can also use orange, lemon, mint, or a combination of oils. Shake well.
Next, fill the mason jar with the fabric pieces. Shake well again.
Finally, let the fabric soak in the liquid for at least a few hours to be sure the fabric is fully saturated.
Try out your new DIY reusable fabric softener dryer sheets. Toss one in the dryer, just like you would a regular dryer sheet.
Note – You might need to tweak the amounts of each ingredient depending on the size of your jars and scent preference. Start out with only a few drops of essential oils, but know you can always add more to suit your scent preference.
After each use, depending on the amount of liquid you have left in your mason jar, you can add the fabric back into the mason jar. Or, you can keep the dry used fabric sheets in a separate mason jar for later when you need to make more fabric dryer sheets.
Keep your new homemade dryer sheets near your dryer or laundry detergent for easy access.
