DIY Homemade Dryer Sheets

Green City Living Co. DIY homemade

Although dryer sheets smell good, they're not good for you or the environment. As single-use products, they produce unnecessary amounts of waste and emit harmful chemicals into our air and water systems. An eco-friendly alternative is homemade dryer sheets. All you need is a few materials that you probably already have at home and you'll be making your very own 100% natural dryer sheets. These will also cost you a fraction of the price compared to store-bought dryer sheets.

 

Here's How To Make Homemade Dryer Sheets:

Materials

  • Large Mason Jar

  • Scraps of cloth such as old flannel sheets, t-shirts or baby blankets (100% cotton is best for this DIY)

  • 1 1/4 cup white vinegar

  • 10 drops essential oil of your choice (I use lavender)

  • Scissors

Directions

  • Cut your material into pieces about the size of a baby wipe or regular dryer sheet (about 4.90 x 4.29). You should have enough material to make 24 dryer sheets.

  • Combine all the ingredients in the glass jar. Shake or stir well.

  • Roll each towel then stack them inside the glass jar with the vinegar mixture.

  • Close the jar and turn it upside for a few seconds, so that the liquid soaks into all parts of the towels.

  • Use 1-2 towels per load, depending on the size. Once the load is finished, simply roll the towel back up and put it back in the jar. Refill the jar mixture as needed.
