How to make Home made Laundry Softener/ Laundry sheets

I asked what you wanted DIY recipes for and one of the request was dryer sheets so I did a little research and here are a few I found.


  1. put 1/4 cup vinegar in your laundry’s rinse cycle. If you want you can add a few drops of essential oil for smell to the vinegar.
  2. Mix equal parts hair conditioner and water and store in spray bottle. Mist a washcloth or sponge and toss in dryer with wet load
  3. mix water and liquid laundry softener in a spray bottle (50/50) and mist your clothes before drying them.
  4. put 1/8 cup baking soda into your laundry and then add 1/4 cup vinegar in the rinse cycle
  5. In a pail mix 1 gallon of water and 1 cup concentrated liquid fabric softener. Dip a sponge or washcloth in the liquid, squeeze out excess and toss in the dryer with your laundry.
and here are two recipes for you


Homemade Fabric Softener Recipe


  • 1 part Vinegar
  • 1 part Baking Soda
  • 2 parts Hot Water


  1. Place a pail large enough to hold double the amount of ingredients in the kitchen sink or bathtub. Mix the baking soda and water in the pail, stir till the powder is dissolved. Then add the vinegar.
  2. Remember that baking soda and vinegar reacts with fizzing, so use a big pail to account for this. Once it’s stopped fizzing, pour into clean bottles, cap, then use 1/4 cup per rinse cycle.
  3. baking soda settles so make sure to shake before each use.

Reusable Homemade Dryer Sheets


  • Flannel pieces
  • 4 TBS liquid softener
  • 10 TBS water


  1. Cut fabric sheets from old flannel pajamas or leftover flannel fabric from sewing and cut into 3″ x 5″ strips (approximately).
  2. Stack flannel strips in a cleaned margarine tub (large size) or plastic container (cleaned baby wipes container works well too). Mix the liquid softener and water together, then pour evenly over top of stacked flannel strips.
  3. Seal container and shake well.

You can use several dozen strips with this mixture. Leave sealed for 2 or 3 days, then use one flannel strip per load–squeeze out excess if necessary. Wash strips after use, then use again to make another batch when needed.
