Saving Money with Dryer Sheets



So far, I’ve shared my thoughts about the Arm & Hammer Essentials Fabric Softener Sheets as well as a tip for keeping your linens “just from the laundry” fresh.

Today I wanted to share one of my favorite money saving tips!  Did you know that if you cut your dryer sheets in half, they will still do the same job as a full sheet?  I’ve been doing this for years.  I keep a pair of scissors in the laundry room.  Sometimes I will sit down and cup up the whole box when I open it, other times I will just cut a small stack at a time.   It’s just a great little tip to  cut costs in your household budget.


If you’d like to try it for yourself, print and save $1 on any 2 Arm & Hammer Fabric Softener sheets or dryer cloths plus $11.50 worth of additional savings in the savings center!


I’m participating in The Switch & Save Challenge, trying a variety of Arm & Hammer products and sharing my experiences with you!

And be sure to head over to The Switch & Save Challenge for the chance to win $25,000

  1. What a great tip. We all can use some savings and little here and there do add up! 🙂 Happy Friday.

  2. What a great tip! So often we don’t experiment because we just take the directions for granted – I wonder what else we could save on with this method?

  3. Nice tip! I am not using dryer sheets as much these days because I can’t use them on my daughter’s clothes. But this will help me stretch them out even further!


  4. Use these and love them. Yep, I already cut them in half. Yea, for me.

  6. I have to tell you that my boyfriend asked me to start doing this to save money and I thought he was crazy. Is it bad that I’ll do it now that you recommended it?? 🙂

  7. Very good to know – for years my hubby has been using 2 and I keep telling him he doesn’t need to, especially since we use fabric softener. I’m thinking he will not love me cutting them in 1/2 but I’m doing it anyway! 🙂
