Outnumbered 3 to 1: DIY Never Ending Dryer Sheets

My name is Oprah and I have an obsession with Pinterest!! I’m not ashamed not even a little bit. I have over 7 boards and hundreds of pins. I try craft projects, some fail miserably and others I achieve triumphantly. But what I’m about to share is a simple money saver, that no one can mess up.

I don’t usually share homemade or “housewife” stuff but this was brilliant; it is for DIY dryer sheets. I HATE buying these things, but I hate not putting them in my dryer even more. But I’ve found a solution and I’m NEVER going back!

Simply get a container you aren’t emotionally attached too. I just used a Tupperware dish. It needs to have a lid so you can keep it sealed tight.

Fill your container with half water and half of your favorite fabric softener. I actually used more of a 40/60 split (more fabric softener).

Get some of those cheap sponges from the dollar store cut them in half and let them soak in your mixture lid on tight and VOILA. Dryer sheets when you need them.

All you have to do it take one or two out and squeeze just the excess liquid out and throw it in with your clothes in the dryer. It works like a charm. So much so that as I was getting my daughter dressed this morning I brought her closer for a couple extra sniffs.
