Wow, this month has FLOWN by! We are now at the end of January which means it’s the 4th and final post in my bergamot essential oil series! Today’s post is a DIY recipe for essential oil dryer sheets. I am attempting to cut down on the number of harmful chemicals I use in my home. In terms of the laundry room, I have tried a number of stain remover recipes but they have all been a flop so I decided to try the dryer sheets instead!

These dryer sheets are super easy to make, all natural and very inexpensive! Since this month’s theme is bergamot I used bergamot as one of the oils in my recipe but really you could use whatever essential oil you prefer!

DIY Reusable Essential Oil Dryer Sheets

I promise this recipe is SUPER easy to make!

What You Need:

  • A glass jar (mine is 750ml) (get it HERE)
  • 1 hand towel (that you will cut up) OR 6 facecloths(get it HERE)
  • 8 drops of bergamot essential oil
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 3/4 cup of white vinegar (get it HERE)
  • Dryer sheets label (Get it HERE)


1. If you are using a hand towel, cut it into 8 equal pieces. I did this by cutting the towel in half, then cutting that half in half and repeating once more until I was left with 8 equally sized cloths. If you prefer you could also buy a pack of facecloths and use that instead.

Note: I have heard from others that any fabric will work however I don’t have experience with that so I am recommending a terry cloth material.

2. In a glass measuring cup mix 3/4 cup of white vinegar with 8 drops of bergamot and 5 drops of lavender (or use the essential oils of your choice).

3. Pour a little bit of the vinegar/eo mixture in the bottom of the glass jar then add 2 cloths on top. Repeat this process until all liquid and cloths have been added.

4. Attach the lid to the jar and turn upside down a few times.

5. Let the cloths sit overnight (or at least for a few hours) to make sure they are all damp.

How to Use Your Essential Oil Dryer Sheets

Put your wet laundry in the dryer as you usually would and add 2 of your homemade dryer sheets. Your dryer sheets should feel damp to the touch. If they are quite wet, ring them out slightly (back into the jar).

Reusing Your Dryer Sheets

You can definitely reuse these sheets, simply place them back in the jar and add more vinegar/essential oils as needed!

  1. Iโ€™d recommend using fabric thatโ€™s 100% cotton (most terry cloth) if youโ€™re worried about static (polyester is terrible for static).

  2. I use vinegar in my fabric softener dispenser and I also have wool dryer balls. I put a drop of essential oils on the dryer balls and my clothes smell great. No static cling, no oil residue whatsoever. I am going to try this DIY for dryer sheets once my towels are no longer in good shape. Thanks for this recipe. I can’t wait to try it!
