Cheap and Effective Fabric Softener and Dryer Sheet Alternative
Looking for a dryer sheet alternative that will leave your clothes soft and static-free? The solution is incredibly simple, easy, and inexpensive! You’ll be so impressed with the results that you’ll never buy dryer sheets or fabric softener every again!
With all the laundry that Airbnb hosts do on a regular basis, finding a dryer sheet alternative that will improve your results and lower your operating expenses is an all-around win for your hosting business. No more buying expensive dryer sheets! No more buying expensive fabric softener!
Dryer Sheet Alternative
You’ll only need aluminum foil to pull off this dryer sheet alternative and you probably already have it in your kitchen. If not, aluminum foil can be picked up at your local grocery store or purchased online and delivered right to your door!
Take some foil off the roll and make a ball about the size of a baseball. Simply toss this in the dryer with your wet clothes and run the dryer as you normally would. Your clothes will come out dry without any static!
You can continue to reuse the same aluminum foil ball each time you dry a load of clothes and the savings will add up!
Fabric Softener Alternative
Fabric softener can be an expensive item that is often full of chemicals that could be toxic or irritating to your skin. By using white distilled vinegar when you wash clothes, you can get your clothes perfectly soft in a healthy way that is also easy on the wallet!
Simply add ¼ cup of vinegar to your rinse cycle. The white distilled vinegar removes soap residue and leaves your clothes amazingly soft! For larger loads, you may need to go with a ½ cup of vinegar.
Vinegar is a tiny fraction of the cost of fabric softener and can also be used for other cleaning tasks around the house.
