Fabric Softener Towel

Fabric Softener Towel

FS towel


I absolutely love this pin!  I have been using my homemade laundry detergent since October.  I love how clean it gets my clothes.  However even though there are two bottles of fabric softener crystals in it there isn’t enough scent for me. I miss my downy scents!  But I don’t want to go back to liquid since I cleaned my washer and saw the residue it left.  So this pin was a perfect solution! 
The pin didn’t say how much fabric softener to use. So I used a kitchen hand towel with one cup of fabric softener.   I have now used my towel ten times, scent is still strong! The pin said she gets 40 uses out of hers. I will update on how many uses I get before I need to rewet it in Downy.
My clothes smell soooooooooooooooooo good!  Much better than normal dryer sheets! Successful pin!


Soak a hand towel in fabric softener.  I used a cup of downy for mine.  Make sure your towel is all soaked in FS.   Squeeze any excess out.  (I just kept blotting at it and it soaked up all of mine.)

It will take forever to dry but you must make sure it is completely dry before using.  The original blogger did hers inside and it took 3 days.  I did one day outside and one day inside before it was completely dry.   It also made the house smell amazing while drying!  

Then use as you would a fabric softener sheet!  

Just an amazing tip!

Thanks to the blog for this wonderful tip:  http://www.matternfamily.com/2011/10/no-more-dryer-sheets-or-fabric-softener.html

Julie Tip:  Soaking a washcloth and hanging to dry out of  sight would be a great way to freshen up your air when having guests too.

    How did this end up working out? I make my own fabric softer and I hate my yucky it leaves my washer so I figured I could try this! Walmart sells a pack of 18 wash clothes for $4 so I figured I would go invest in those and be set for quite awhile if I did them all at once and dried then just kept them in an airtight container.
    Love your blog btw, thank you!

      I am still using this recipe! I get about 25 loads from each wash cloth. I recommend trying one and seeing how you like it. Thanks for reading!
