What You Need:
- Strips of flannel (ours were scraps we had on hand but you can also use worn-out sheets or cut up that old shirt of your husband's!)
- A medium-sized plastic container with lid (we re-purposed a cleaned-out sour cream container)
- A favorite brand of liquid fabric softener (we had some from when we made our Wrinkle Release Spray!)
- Hot water
Place your strips into your container, making sure they all fit comfortably and the lid can go on.
Mix up a solution of 4 parts liquid fabric softener and 10 parts hot water. Pour the solution over the strips of flannel in the container, secure the lid, and shake it up to make sure the strips soak up the solution. Let it sit for at least two days...although to be honest we couldn't wait and used it the same day we made it!
When you are ready to do some laundry, just pull out one strip, squeeze out the excess solution, and throw it in the dryer with your wet clothes like you normally would with a commercial dryer sheet! Used strips can be put back into the container with the solution and used again!
