How to Make Homemade Dryer Sheets
Truth be told, you won’t believe how simple it is to make your own homemade dryer sheets! I’m sharing a few different ways to make your own at home.
DIY Dryer Sheets – Method #1
With this first method, you can mix together vinegar and essential oils to be sprayed on a cloth before tossing it in the dryer. The vinegar is key. Pour vinegar into a dark glass bottle and add your favorite essential oils. When your clothes are ready for the dryer, shake the bottle and then spray until damp. Once the load is done, remove the cloth and store it until next time. This is a great way to reuse old towels or rags.

Homemade Dryer Sheets – Method #2
Pour liquid fabric softener into an airtight container and then fill the fabric softener bottle with water twice to mix with the fabric softener. Add old washcloths and store until ready to use. When your clothes are ready for the dryer, wring the excess fabric softener mixture from the cloth and add to your dryer. Once dry, place the cloth back into the mixture until needed.
Make Your Own Dryer Sheets – Method #3
Another method is to use 3 to 5 drops of essential oil on a dry cloth. Add the oil to a cloth and immediately add it to your dryer with your load of wet clothes. You can do this a few times before you need to wash the clothes.
If you want a natural method, use vinegar and essential oils. If your goal is to save money, consider method #2 which allows you to stretch your fabric softener a little bit further and lost longer. If you like the idea of the second method, but also want a natural method, consider looking for an all-natural liquid fabric softener.
Homemade dryer sheets are easier to make than you might have imagined. Whether you want to save money or create something natural, you’ll love these methods. You’ll also love that none of these require hardly any work at all. That to me is the true win!
