Using Liquid Fabric Softener Instead of Dryer Sheets

February 9, 2010

Pouring Liquid Fabric SoftenerInstead of buying expensive fabric softener sheets, I put fabric softener in a spray bottle diluted 1:1 with water, spray Pellon interfacing material or a soft washcloth with about a dozen sprays and throw it in the dryer.


I use Amway fabric softener which must be diluted but some brands may be OK to use without diluting. (If it doesn't spray easily, it may need to be diluted.) Wash the cloths every few loads to prevent a buildup of fabric softener.

If there are a lot of pile fabrics or nylon garments in the wash that collects a lot of static electricity, try putting two or three sprayed cloths in the dryer. For garments that are dried on a line, just swab the surface of the garment with the cloth by hand. This method works especially well for my rubber-backed pile bathmat.

Instead of buying expensive dryer sheets, place a small amount of liquid fabric softener on a clean rag, and place it in the dryer with the wet clothes.

Purchase your favorite fabric softener, pour into a fine mist spray bottle, and mist 3-6 times in your dryer for the freshest smelling clothes ever.
