- 2-3 Containers of Organic Fabric Softener
- Several inexpensive sponges (cut in 4 pieces.)
- 2 bottles of water for every bottle of softener

Pour the contents of the softener bottles into a 5 -gallon bucket. You can buy these at your home improvement store or get them free at places like SAM's Club and Walmart in the bakery if you ask nicely.
Then fill your empty fabric softener bottles with water and pour it into the bucket with the softener. For every bottle of softener, you add 2 bottles full of water.
Now take the package of sponges (mine had three in the package and cut into 4 pieces with a pair of scissors. Throw your sponges into the bucket and leave to absorb the mixture.
When you are ready to put your load of clothes in the dryer, open your bucket, reach in and grab a single sponge, wring out the sponge and throw in just like you would a dryer sheet.
