Well the colder weather means no more hanging our clothes outside on the line. I tried hanging some blankets outside the other day and they never did completely dry. This means I will be using my dryer again and that means...static cling! Ugh. It's the worst in the cold months.
I used to use dryer sheets. Then I started saving some money cutting the dryer sheets in half. Half a sheet was usually sufficient enough to get most of the static out of the clothes. Almost a year ago I ran out of dryer sheets and decided to try a new method. I use a quirt bottle filled with a capful of liquid fabric softener and fill the rest of the bottle with water. Squirt 6-10 sprays into dryer on top of wet clothes.
I still have the original bottle of fabric softener that I bought almost a year ago. I just made up a new batch of it yesterday and it is still working really well at getting the static cling out of the clothes.
I should mention that I also shake the bottle each time I use it to make sure it gets mixed well.
