Reusing Dryer Sheets

This is another tip using fabric softener sheets. To get a better value from them, reuse them. A sheet can be used four times. Each time you use one, cut a bit off a corner. Toss the sheet after the fourth use.

I prefer to cut my dryer sheets into thirds and use each piece once. That seems to give me the right amount of softening.

I heard awhile ago not to reuse dryer sheets due to the fire danger. I do not remember where I heard it but it sounds possible. Dry sheets make a good insect repellent. Put under your collar.

Hi. I have another way to save on dryer sheets. When I get my new box I have a jar sitting on the dryer. I put 2 sheets in it and fill with water. Every time I use a sheet I put it in the jar. Then when the box is empty I have a jar full of very well scented dryer sheets. Just pull them out and wring some of the water out and just like a fresh one. They work just as good and a brand new one. Have been doing this for years seeing I raised 3 boys and washed football uniforms for the youth club. You need to save when you have 150 uniforms to wash. Hope this is helpful to the penny wise people.
