Never Use Dryer Sheets Again.......DIY Dryer Balls

I have been using my own handmade dryer balls for a couple of years now and I never have a problem with static when removing my laundry from the dryer. And if I wish to have a scent added to the dryer I will use a few drops of my favorite essential oil scent onto one of the dryer balls before putting it into the dryer.

This goes hand in hand, for me anyway, with making your own laundry soap, which is very easy to do. And something I have noticed since using my own laundry soap is that if I leave the finished load in the washer overnight there is no (sour) smell on the laundry the next day like I used to get from the store bought laundry
soap I used to use.

I have used the dry powder form of handmade laundry soap before but I wasn't happy with the performance of it. The pieces of grated soap didn't always dissolve and came out of the washing machine on the wet clothes.
