I have sensitive skin, too and started making my own detergent when I had to start applying for a loan so I could buy laundry soap. I missed having the dryer sheets though, so I found a fabric softener recipe online that uses shampoo. However, now that I've moved I'm having trouble finding the same shampoo I used at the dollar store. This is a GREAT idea!!! And it's cheaper than my softener so...WIN! Thanks!!!!

Great Idea, I used a free sample the other day that I got at the store and the smell was so strong and gross. I will definitely try this, I usually use no scent and wish I had something mild to add.

Definitely give it a try! It's a quick project, and they're easy ti use. The hardest part is finding them in laundry afterwards Smiley

I have a bunch of handmade laundry soap that I haven't used in a year or two since we got our new High Efficiency Top Loading washer and it said that we should use certain products. I would really prefer to use the handmade.

I use dye free/scent free products and wool dryer balls already. I do like the idea of the fabric dryer sheets.

They are super quick and easy to make! But, make sure that your fabric is pre-washed so the color doesn't run Smiley

Now these I can absolutely use, I like when laundry has a nice, light, fresh scent like mint or lavender. I usually do unscented everything because chemical fragrances are my big migraine trigger, I avoid anything scented as best I can. Sometimes even "fragrance-free" has a smell though, that's just a terrible thing to do to consumers in my opinion. I haven't found a diy dish soap recipe that works yet and I have given up on home made laundry detergent (I made it for years and years but it really doesn't clean as well as proper SOAP and I have dirty children, haha) but there's a local vendor I get wholesale bulk products from, hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, dish soap, laundry soap, all unscented or very lightly with essential oils (peppermint, rosemary). For cleaning I use baking soda, vinegar, dish soap for anything greasy. I even used to make my own baby wipes, that was so many years ago now.

I accidentally bought some scented laundry detergent, and when I wear something that was washed in it, I get a rash. It goes away, and I   could wash every article of clothing I own, which would take way too long... so I just try not to scratch Smiley
