In our home we try to be as natural as possible. So, I decided to make my own dryer sheets and it turned out AWESOME! I actually prefer them much better to anything you buy in the store. They take only minutes to make and you control the little or how much you want. Want to learn how to make them? Keep reading! 
So, you are only going to need a couple of things:

A large mason jar or any container with a tight sealing lid. 
White vinegar
cut up old shirts, towels, cloth, etc
Essential oils of your choosing

To begin, cut up your cloth. I make little squares and then stuff them in the jar. I fill it about a third of the way and then add vinegar. Then I add my oil. Here you can be creative. Sometimes I mix scents I like: tea tree and lemon, peppermint and basil. It all depends on your mood. For each layer, you want to use about 25 drops. Or, just use the vinegar if you do not want a scent. The vinegar will not leave your clothing smelling like a salad, I promise! Instead, the vinegar acts like a natural fabric softener. Keep repeating until your jar is stuffed full. Once it is all ready, give it a shake and do some laundry!  I use three small squares for each large load. 

If you want to also make your own detergent, check out my article here! It is all natural and simple to do.

We use vinegar, but just put it in a downy ball in the wash! This would work well too!!

Can't wait to try this.Got to fold my mountain of clean laundry & sort through the outgrown stuff. Whatever is holey and can't be donated will be sacrificed as dryer sheets so I can try this out!
