Easy substitute for dryer sheets.

Easy substitute for dryer sheets.

 

OOPS! You  forgot to add fabric softener sheets to your shopping list, and you have a washer full of wet clothes. They'll smell moldy if you let them sit until you can get to the store, but if you dry them without a sheet, they'll be staticky and stiff. Instead, squeeze a few drops of hair conditioner onto a clean washcloth, throw it in the dryer with your clothes and run the machine as usual. The conditioner will soften your clothes just like a dryer sheet would. An additional boon: The cloth can be reused up to three times.

Wow, just when I thought I KNEW EVERYTHING.....lol  What a great idea.  Every once in a while I AM out of fabric softener, and now I have an alternative.  Thanks

Good tip, makes sense too that conditioner would soften clothes as well as hair.  Has anyone figured out if this is more economical than buying fabric sheets?  Nice photo by the way.
