DIY Never-Ending Dryer Sheets

If you do a lot of laundry, this will save you a lot of money! Here’s what you need:

1 Container with an airtight lid (grabbed out of my pantry)
4 sponges cut in half ($1.00 for a 4pk at the dollar store)
1 cup of your favorite fabric softener ($0.30 worth of fabric softener)
2 cups water (free from my tap)

Mix the water and fabric softener into a plastic container and add the cut sponges so they can soak in the mixture. When ready to use, squeeze the excess liquid from 1 sponge and place into the dryer with your wet clothes. Run the dryer cycle as normal.  Once it’s complete, place the now dry sponge back into the container of liquid for use next time. Your clothes will smell good, are soft and have no static just like the expensive non-reusable dryer sheets.


  1. Enjoy your article a great idea thanks for sharing

  2. How often do you need to change the water for the sponges in the never ending dryer sheets?

  3. It does not work with the green recycled material sponges

  4. I really like this recipe it works great. I cut my sponges in half but then use 2-3 at a time, still lots cheaper! I have tried making softener with the vinegar, and cheap hair conditioner recipe I personally don’t care for it. The sponges are the best recipe in my opinion 🙂

  5. I was told before if you put fabric softener straight in the wash and not the venet provided it will turn your clothes blue… is this true ?? I want to try this

    • Dee that is not true, when your washer fills up for the rinse cycle You can add the fabric softener straight into the water, it will not color or stain your clothes.

  6. Do you have a recipe that doesn’t use anything chemical (ie the Downy).

  7. Just use vinegar, does not leave a perfume smell
    BUT clothes smell clean and fresh also SOFT
