In this video, Kween Read explains that dryer sponges are better for you, your clothes, and the environment than traditional dryer sheets.

She shows you her DIY method for making them at home.

Kween explains that she and her daughter bought a large glass jar, cleaned it with rubbing alcohol, then added a cute decal which they printed off on their printing machine.

They then added their favorite fabric softener to the jar until it was about a quarter of the way full. They then topped up the rest of the jar with water.

Next, they took some rectangular sponges from Dollar Tree, cut them in half and submerged them in the liquid.

Doing laundry

Every time Kween and her daughter do their laundry, they simply take one of the sponges, squeeze most of the liquid out, then toss the sponge into the laundry before beginning the cycle. This helps their clothes to come out feeling soft and smelling extra clean!

    I don't use an electric dryer, my dryer is solar (sunshine) but if I did, this makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the idea. If I ever get a dryer, I will keep it in mind. Blessings!

    Looks like she is putting in washer but video shows clearly going into dryer. Plus the jar says dryer sponges. Confusing with the clothes washer in last picture.
