I just got this tip from Taste of Home's Menu Saver Newsletter and I can't wait to try it! I NEVER thought of doing this but I am betting it works and I am all for homemade anything that saves money!!!! :o)
"Save on laundry softener with a reusable fabric softener cloth. Soak a wash cloth in a non-metallic bowl filled with liquid fabric softener for 30 minutes or until it soaks up the liquid fabric softener. Wear plastic gloves and take the wash cloth out of the bowl and squeeze out the excess liquid. (Pour the excess fabric softener liquid in the bowl back into the original fabric softener bottle to use another time.) Hang up the cloth to dry for 24 hours. You’ll have a fabric softener "sheet" that will last for 100-plus loads of laundry. When the fabric softener cloth stops working, just repeat the whole process."
Have a blessed day! Love, Julie
