Who does not love to end end up with amazingly great-smelling clean laundry?
I can't imagine anyone that that will answer no to that question. All of us do!
That's why to get this great result, some people buy both, the liquid Fabric Softener that works during the wash, PLUS the Dryer Sheets that work during the drying cycle, to ensure that the laundry really ends up smelling terrific . . . or NOT!
In fact, when you do that, you are actually buying the same product twice, as they are really designed to be used either or, not both!
I was guilty of making the same mistake, spending that extra money, buying both products. That is until one day I noticed a very young couple in the laundry isle. They were obviously newlyweds, or on a tight budget, or both. He was so mad at her because she was buying the liquid softener, plus the dryer sheets of the same product and fragrance! He was asking her: "why do you have to buy both when they are supposed to do the exact the same thing?" Her answer? . . . "because the laundry never ends up smelling great!" That answer lit up my creative self, and it was the end of my buying both products . . . forever, and start saving!
That actually happened many years before Febreze came to the market, and when it did, I realized I already had my own! So this trick became good for two products in one . . . isn't that awesome?
Do you want to start saving tons of money by skipping buying Dryer Sheets AND Febreze?
Simply make your own!
All you need is:
Your favorite Liquid Fabric Softener
A Spray Pump
And Warm Water
First of all, buy one of this spray pumps! They are completely inexpensive, just $1 at any dollar store, and they are absolutely worth the money, as they come with measurements in ounces, and also proportional measurements, from 10-1 to 1-1, to help you do all your mixing. At the end, you just reuse them over and over again.
2 parts very warm water
and 1 part liquid fabric softener
For this posting I only made a 6-ounce mixture, but you can mix any amount that fits in the container you are using.
After the mix is complete, gently shake it side to side. No need to shake extremely hard, as the purpose of the warm water is to facilitate the mix of water and softener blend together easier.
That's all there is to it!
Now all you have to do is spray the mixture into the wet laundry in the dryer, before you start the cycle. Spray as little or as much as you want, it won't hurt anything. I've been doing this forever, and depending on the amount of laundry, I normally spray between 8-10 times.
If for any reason you don't like the idea of spraying it directly into the laundry, you can always spray the mixture into the side walls of the drying machine. (Do not spray it directly into the vent holes).
Now you have two product in one: Dryer Sheet & Febreze . . . how cool is that?
These are just some uses of the uses I put this mix to work:
Depending on your preference, you can prepare the mix with more fabric softener for a more concentrate fragrance!
How much can you save?
A 64oz. of fabric softener cost around $3. A regular size Febreze is 27oz., so you'll need 9oz. of softener to make a full 27oz. bottle, therefore, it'll cost approximately 43¢ to prepare your own! ☺
Enjoy the savings!
