Remember this post? Well, I took a bit of the article’s advice and have been making my own dryer sheets for the past few loads of clothes. It’s a real treat for my nose, and it’s super simple! If you want to make your own, then you’ll need the following:
- One or two drops of the essential oil of your choice (I’ve been using lavender, and I’ve also been using more like 5 or 6 drops).
- A bath cloth to catch the drops of essential oil (You’ll need to apply new drops to the cloth for each load you dry).
If you have a bath cloth to spare and and a bottle of essential oil lying around*, then you should definitely give this a try. There’s nothing to throw away, and making them only requires one ingredient! Neither of those things can be said of store bought dryer sheets.
*A bottle of lavender essential oil sells for as low as $5, so even if you don’t currently own a bottle…buying one probably wouldn’t break the bank.
