Frugal Fridays – Saving Dryer Sheets

May 9, 2008 at 1:59 am 5 comments

If you use fabric softener sheets, you can literally cut down on your cost! Simply take a stack of dryer sheets and cut them into halves (I know some people who even cut theirs into thirds or quarters). You’ll get double-duty out of each dryer sheet, and your clothes will still be amply softened!

Be sure to visit Biblical Womanhood for more great frugal tips and ideas.

    I cannot use dryer sheets b/c my daughter has eczema, but did you know that a 1/4 c. of vinegar is an awesome softener? Adn it doesn’t leave your clothes smelling like vinegar! And it is super cheap!!

    I don’t use dryer sheets often anymore, but when I did I would tear them in two and also use them for more than one cycle. After that I would stick them into a drawer or the linen closet, and they are wonderful to put in kids athletic bags to lighten the stink a little. During winter I even carry a small scrap in my purse to fix any static cling.

    Dryer sheets do a great job of absorbing odors! I always keep a couple in my dance bag.

    putting a dryer sheet in your pocket will keep Mosquitoes
    away…also when I had a kitchen fire the smoke messed up my mattresses, by placing dryer sheets on and between them I got rid of the smoke scent after a few weeks.
