I googled and googled and googled until I got fed up and decided to use some of the ideas I found but make my own recipe.
First I cut some Flannel I had left over from making Jada's Rag Quilt. I made it 4 layers thick and sewed all around the edges. I just cut mine with pinking scissors so I didn't have to bind my ends. Then I mixed about 4 tbsp of my favorite fabric softener with 4 tbsp of water in a plastic container.
I mixed it well then put my flannel in to soak up the fabric softener mixture. I did not ring it out at all, I just took the container outside with me to hang up the flannel on the clothesline.
I let it naturally drip and dry for a few hours outside. I was lucky it was a windy and sunny day.
So there you have it, homemade dryer sheets that cost Penny's to make. Add one homemade dryer sheet to your dryer for up to 10 loads! Now that's savings! Better yet it solved my freshness issue with the homemade laundry detergent however did not solve the chemical issue:( I will still work on this. I found some lavender ones on Etsy but I'm not a lavender fan.
