Homemade Fabric Softener

I might have gone at this backwards. I was using the commercial liquid softener or dryer sheets and decided I wanted something more ecologically friendly. So I researched what would work in the dryer.

I ended up by making some wool dryer balls with my fresh lavender inside them. They worked great when using the dryer and (with the exception of a few polyester items) eliminated the static.

However, we have now put up a clothesline - so things will be drying on the line. Unfortunately, the dryer balls don't work with this method. So I am now going to start making my own fabric softener that can be used in the wash portion.

What this entry is suggesting is that - since the fabric softener works for clothes that are hung out, but not for the dryer, the dryer balls can be added in for that step when needed.
