Handy Tip #9

This tip is about getting the most from a product.

Have you ever noticed how an empty box of washing powders still has a lot of good smell to it. There's no sense letting this go to waste.

First, I tear the top off, and open the bottom seam. At this point, you may have a small amount of washing powders left. I just pour this into my washer to wait for the next load of clothes.

I then tear the side seam open.

Now, tear all the way across.

Then tear into smaller squares.

At this point, I throw all the pieces into the dryer with my load of wet clothes.

Of course, I add fabric softener sheets too.

Just another way to get more smell into my clothes, without any more cost,and it doesn't hurt the clothes. I usually can do this 2 or 3 times before the pieces no longer smell. At that point, I just throw them away.

What do you think? Would you do this?


  1. I haven't done this, but I do tear the dryer sheet box up and put it in the bottom of trashcans.

    Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!

    1. I've never thought of that. I just usually put it in the dryer also. Thanks Jill.
