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