SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - Here’s how to give your clothes that fresh fragrance without using chemically-filled dryer sheets.

How to:

  • 1. Take white cotton squares, approximately 6 x 6, or use white washcloths. Lay them out on a hard, washable surface. I lay a sheet of aluminum foil down for easy cleanup and treat several at a time.
  • 2. Shake the essential oil(s) of your choice across the cloth. If you want more scent use more drops, less, use fewer drops.
  • 3. Pick up each cloth and wring it tightly in your hands. This spreads out the essential oil. Put the cloths in a labeled covered container.
  • 4. Toss one in each dryer load of clothes.
  • 5. Lavender is awesome for bedding. Also, try citrus. Look for spicy scents for a more masculine smell and your favorite scent for yourself.
  • 6. Each cloth may be used about 5 - 6 times. When they no longer are scented, dry and start over.

Warnings & Cautions: Dryer softener sheets are loaded with chemicals. Since your skin is the largest organ of the body, it is very absorbent. Try these instead.
