1 Container with an airtight lid 4 sponges cut in half (from $1 store) 1 cup of your favorite fabric softener 2 cups water WHAT TO DO: Mix the water and fabric softener in plastic container. Add the cut sponges so they can soak in the mixture. When ready to use, squeeze the excess liquid from 1 sponge and place into the dryer with your wet clothes. Run the dryer cycle as normal. Once complete place the now dry sponge back into the container of liquid for use next time.

Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelling funky. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and one cup vinegar, then a second time with hot water and a half cup of baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again.

Homemade Fabric Softener

Homemade fabric softener, made with vinegar. Only vinegar, if you choose. Or add essential oil for fragrance. Great idea, it rinses all the detergent from laundry and cleans the washing machine.

My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!

Make Your Own Fabric Softening Sheets

This mega-fabric softener sheet should be good for at least 40 loads of laundry, stretching out softener use and lessening waste. In other words, save money.
