Yes, this post is twofold. I remembered seeing how to make your own reusable dryer sheets ages ago and kept forgetting to pick up the cloths to make them. When I finally remembered I started to think about what I wanted to store them in. I remembered all of the formula containers Kim gave me to recycle into whatever I wanted. One of the smaller formula containers seemed like it would be perfect for this!
I know I could have left the container as it was but I decided to “pretty it up” a bit before making the actual dryer sheets.
I picked up some flowered napkins from the dollar store, gathered up my modge podge and I was ready to go!
I cut the napkins into squares… they don’t have to be even… and started to podge the container.
Once it was dry I started on the dryer sheets.
To make the dryer sheets, you start by cutting your cloths into squares. I had originally quartered the sheets but they were still too big for my container so I cut them all in half again. It just means I will use two sheets per load.
I placed them in the container, leaving a space in the centre, and then poured in about 1/2 cup fabric softener and 1 cup of water.
I closed the lid, shook the container so all the sheets had the mixture on them and then stuck a label on the front. Now I have some reusable dryer sheets and won’t have to keep buying the disposable ones! Recycling and cutting down on waste… a win win situation!
