Being a frugal person, I am always trying to save money. I can't stand wasting my dollars on things that I can only use once before I have to throw it away. I cut my dryer sheets
in half so I get two loads of fresh smelling laundry instead of one. My clothing smells just as nice as if I had used an entire sheet.
How about eliminating the dryer sheet altogether? You can eliminate fabric softener by adding 1/4 to 1/2 cup of vinegar to your load of laundry
and amazingly, it works. It also means that your clothes are odor free. If you like a nice smelling garment, TipNut
has an excellent article with instructions on how you can make lavender dryer bags
that can be used over and over again.
All you need is some cotton muslin or cheesecloth squares, some thread and some lavender. Sew
your pieces of cloth together, throw in some lavender, and finish stitching up the bag and you are ready to dry some laundry. Best of all, when the lavender no longer has smell, you can crush it up and drop it on your carpet
. Then when you vacuum, you'll have nice smelling rugs. I am so going to try this awesome idea! How about you?
