Can you use dryer sheets for interfacing fabric in sewing?

Interfacing is not expensive to buy and why would you want to substitute dryer sheets? An old dryer sheet might leave a grease stain on your fabric.

I've heard you can use coffee filters.

The grease from the dryer sheet will gunk up the sewing machine. Not a happy thing to deal with.

You can get interfacing that is sew in stuff, rather than iron on and cut into size you need. I have the heavy stuff and cut some into inch size strips to have handy for things. Never know when a little piece is all you need and it is there. Also can get the breathable type fabrics which I love to use as interfacing for everyday things. It softens nicely, to the point some you can get dissolves.
