Reusable Dryer Sheets

Looking for a more frugal, eco-friendly alternative to store bought dryer sheets? 
These make it yourself sheets are cheap, easy to do and actually work. 

Here's what you need: 
~ Old Shirt or Towel
~ Fabric Softener 
~ Bucket or Basket for Storage 

First, take your old shirt or towel and cut it into pieces. Make sure these pieces are not too small. 
Next, put all your sheets into a large bowl and cover with a combination of 2 parts fabric softener to 1 part water making sure everything is covered. 
Leave in bowl over night.
Squeeze out sheets individually and lay out in a single layer to dry. 
Once completely dry, store in a container. 
Throw a few of these sheets into the dryer with your wet clothes. 
Pull them out of your laundry when its finished and put them back in the basket. 
These sheets can be used a bunch of times before you have to re-soak them. 

Frugal and Reusable! 
My kind of project!
