(My trusty old' laundry cup)
So, the other day I was doing laundry and discovered that I was out of dryer sheets. URGHHHH! I absolutely hate static cling and running into town wasn't an option for me. After checking out several tips online for dryer sheet alternatives and some trial and error, I discovered a great alternative to using the toxin filled sheets and 15 loads later, I love it and I won't go back!
Here's what you need:
- Distilled White Vinegar
Lightly dampen a washcloth with the vinegar and place it into the dryer with your wet clothes. The vinegar smell will go away during the drying process and you will have static free clothes! This even works with towels!
I already use 1/2 cup of vinegar in my laundry for brighter fresher clothes, so I dip my washcloth (I use a small microfiber washcloth since it absorbs less of the liquid) into the cup and squeeze the excess back into the cup before I add it to the wash. I then put the cloth into the dryer at the beginning of the dry cycle. That's it!
(I use this bright orange microfiber washcloth so I can always easily spot it and run it through the next load)
