I’m almost out of fabric softener sheets and it’s nearly grocery time, but the thought of spending food money on laundry just isn’t making me real happy. I’d rather have fresh veggies than dryer sheets. So in my quest for thriftiness I came across this recipe for fabric softener.
Homemade Dryer Sheets
2 cups of water
1 cups of vinegar
2/3 cups of any hair conditioner
Mix in spray bottle and stir. Don’t shake, this will cause foaming. Spray on a cloth rag until slightly damp and throw into the dryer with your load of clothes. This can also be used as a liquid fabric softener in the rinse cycle.
It cost me $1.38 to make the mixture from ingredients I already had on hand and as we speak, the first load is in the dryer. It smells good (like the conditioner) and there is nary a spark of static in sight.
Let me know if you try it and what you think!
Breakfast – Pancakes (when I made these for breakfast earlier in the week I made a large batch and then put some in the freezer)
Lunch – Scrambled eggs and toast
Dinner – Chicken and Bean stew from a double batch a few weeks ago that I stuck in the freezer and the last loaf of peasant bread from yesterdays dinner.
