DIY: Reusable Dryer Sheets

in DIY, February 7, 2017

Static has been my enemy this winter season. It’s been so bad that whenever I moved my comforter on my bed, you could hear and see the static. Therefore, I went on a mission to stop the static. In my research, I learned that a majority of the static, especially in the winter, is rooted towards the dry air and the dryer. The dryer can produce a lot of negative energy which results in static. A solution that the dear internet provided me is a really simple and cheap recipe for reusable dryer sheets. You may be thinking how cheap is cheap, Jess? Honestly, everything came from the local Dollar Tree, or from the sink. I ended up spending $5 for something that has lasted several loads now. The static is practically gone and my pups can safely snuggle me in bed without getting shocked.


What you will need:

  • 1 container at least 2 qts (I used a 3.2 L as it was the only one available at the time)
  • 1-2 cups of liquid laundry softener
  • 4-5 cups of water
  • 6 sponges




  1. Pour water and softener into the tub and stir until completely mixed.
  2. Place sponges inside the mixture.
  3. Keep container sealed when not in use.
  4. Use one sponge per load. Make sure you squeeze out any extra liquid before adding with your wet clothes.
  5. After the load is done, place the dried sponge back into the mixture.
  6. Enjoy a static free life.
