As I was testing out all my laundry detergents I was also trying a few alternatives to dryer sheets. Join me as we explore the fascinating world of DIY fabric softeners.
I tried three different kind, so guess what my next three posts are going to be about?
Aluminum Foil Dryer Balls
You Will Need:
tear off a sheet of aluminum foil, about the length from finger to elbow. Crumple it up into a ball. Put it into the dryer with wet clothes. This can be used several times.
That is simple enough.
The Verdict: Pretty much worthless. When I pulled apart some of the kids fleece pajamas the sparks were flying. Then I pulled a shirt over my daughters head and her hair stuck straight up from the static and needed a lot of coaxing to come down. I thought maybe it just needed a few loads for the clothes and the foil to become acquainted, but the more I used it the worse things got. So I tossed the foil and moved onto another experiment.
