Dryer Sheets

This Sparked Me!

Years ago I read an article that said to cut the dryer sheets in half when you buy a new box. It works just as well and you get twice as many dryer loads out of each box. I have been doing it for years and it works great.

    Sorry SALLYKWITT, I have to disagree.
Dryer sheets are not good for the environment. Toxic chemicals are used. Instead, use a quarter cup of white vinegar in your rinse cycle. It softens your clothes and the smell dissipates quickly and does not leave a smell on your clothes. I also put a drop of lavendar essential oil with my vinegar. It is all natural and I love the smell.
I am doing my best to not leave footprints.
