How to Make Laundry Sponges

Learn how to make lavender laundry sponges. You will never have to buy dryer sheets again. It will soften your clothes and make them smell great.

Supplies

  • Small plastic tub with lid
  • Sponges without scrubbing pads (I got 3 packs of 3)
  • Water
  • Liquid lavender fabric softener
  • Lavender Laundry Sponges printable (CLICK HERE TO PRINT)
  • Scissors – depending on the size of your plastic container

Instructions
 

  • Cut the sponges according to the size of your container.
  • Combine about 2 cups of water with about 2 cups of liquid lavender fabric softener (use more or less depending on the size of your plastic container).
  • Gently mix the solution with the sponges and close the container. Eventually, the sponges will absorb the mixture.
  • To use a lavender laundry sponge, pull a sponge out of the mixture and squeeze out the excess. Place the wet sponge in the dryer with wet clothes, and the fabric softener will do the rest! It uses a smaller amount of liquid fabric softener than if you were to dump a cap full into the wash cycle.
  • When the laundry is dry, replace the sponge into the plastic container with the mixture! Reuse the sponge until all of the mixture is gone. You’ll have a lot of liquid fabric softener left to make a whole new batch.
