Hey there! I have been super busy with unpacking and all that, so I haven’t been posting much… but I’m back! And, I’m here to show you how to make an alternative to dryer sheets and fabric softener!
Dryer sheets and fabric softener can be really toxic and bad for your health.
I originally got the idea from doterrablog.com.
First, what you will need to make 3-5 balls:
1. 3 packages of 100% Wool Yarn (I found mine at Jo-Ann’s Fabric)
OK, let’s get started!
First, wrap the yarn around your middle and your index finger 10 times.
Then, slide the yard off of your fingers and wrap the yarn 10 times around the middle. It should look like this:
Then continue to wrap it the yarn around and around tightly until you have a tiny ball.
Continue to wrap it tight until it is about the size of a tennis ball.
Tie a knot (tight!). Then take a pantyhose and put a ball in one of the legs (Cut off one leg of the pant).
Then tie a knot. Add the next ball and tie a knot again. Keep going until it looks something like this:
Then, throw it into the washer with a dirty load and wash it on the hottest water setting.
When you wash the yarn, it will felt, and the will yarn shrink.
Then, after the balls are completely dry, pull them out of the stockings and Voila! You now have your DIY alternative to dryer sheets!
