Do you use dryer sheets?

If so, which brand is the best? I want soft fluffy towels and can't find the best fabric softener/dryer sheet combination to get that.

  • Use Distilled White Vinegar in the washer instead of fab softener. It will do the same, even better, won't leave them smelling like vinegar and will freshen your washer. Then I use the dryer bar.

  • Buy some of the dryer balls ... they really do work. You don't have to buy the expensive name brand, Walmart has them as well as just about every other store. We use the Sun brand dryer sheets because they are a $1.00 at Dollar Tree and there is 55 in a box.

  • Same amount as you would use fab softener. I started this when we got our front load washer. I never have to run the expensive cleaner and I've hooked all my friends on using it. You can't beat $4 for 2 gallons at Sam's Club vs. $4-6 for softener.
