Have you read what is in the dryer sheets that we use on our clothes? I have! And I HATE those chemicals touching my body!!!
Dryer sheets are VERY easy to make… and only costs pennies with things that I already have on hand!!!
- 1 cup white vinegar (if you have a larger jar, you can incread the vinegar to 2 cups and add 10 additional drops of essential oils)
- 20 drops of essential oils. We used lavender and rosemary in the video. Lavender is yummy, and so is tea tree oil. Lemon grass smells like fruit loops. I love patchouli and orange with a bit of ylang ylang mixed in. All of these can be found online at Amazon. There are other companies that sell including Young Living and DoTerra. Even our local CHino Valley Pharmacy carries an AWESOME selection of Essential oils. Here is a link to a set on Amazon
- Glass jar with lid (I picked about a dozen up at the dollar store last year to use for different projects around the house. )
- Flannel or cotton material cut into 6×6 or 6×8 pieces (DO NOT USE NEW FABRIC in RED or OTHER DARK COLORS!!! It will bleed into your clothes!) We used a worn, old thick shirt that was my dad’s… it was on its way to the garbage since it had a hole in it.
Add vinegar to the jar. Drop in the essential oils. seal jar and shake throughly…. I know what you are thinking … VINEGAR? That smells funny!!! Once it goes through the dryer, it has no smell…. and helps get rid of anything existing in the clothes.
Add in the cloth to the jar and let it soak up the vinegar mixture.
When you switch your laundry, ring out one or two of the cloths and throwthem in the dryer with your laundry.
Once you fold your clothes, throw the now dry dryer sheet back in with the liquid in the jar.
We replace our vinegar every other week or so… or as we smell the clothes are not as strong with the essential oils.
