WFMW: Easy Static-Free Laundry Tip

My mother-in-law lives on a farm, grows her own food, is famous for her Mississippi Mud Cake and handed over one amazing son to me nearly two decades ago. When she offers a household tip, I listen. While I was with her in January, she shared this awesome tidbit with me.

She was out of dryer sheets and since static is a pain in the dead of winter, she crumpled up a piece of tin foil and tossed it in the dryer to remove static electricity. Boom. I love her.

What works for you?

    That is amazing! I hate dryer sheets because they make my kids break out and itch., but the static! My kids’ hair looks like they stuck their finger in a light socket. Thanks for sharing the tip and hosting!

    We tried this too! Be careful – the foil ball is HOT! Not only that, but after a few cycles, the ball is perfectly round – no crimps.

    Sooooooo much static this winter. I’m tryin’ it! I never remember to put in a dryer sheet until it’s too late, but foil … it’s crazy enough to make an impact on my brain.

    Maybe I should make a hat to go with it …

    The “secret menu” is stuff of lore and legend, which is totally appropriate in [url=]Abercrombie[/url] this case: It turns out there’s a Butterbeer recipe on the Starbucks secret menu.The drink, a favorite of the characters in the Harry Potter books, is a rather complicated recipe that’s only available during the holiday season because it [url=]Abercrombie And Fitch Zurich[/url] includes the seasonal toffee nut syrup. It’s not a drink baristas are trained to make, so customers have to know the ingredients to order one. Butterbeer at Starbucks comes served hot or cold, and here’s what you ask for: For a cold Butterbeer, order a creme Frappuccino base made with whole milk and add three pumps of [url=]Abercrombie[/url] caramel syrup, three pumps of [url=]Abercrombie And Fitch Copenhagen[/url] toffee nut syrup and top with a caramel drizzle. For a hot one, order a whole milk steamer, caramel syrup, toffee nut syrup, cinnamon dolce syrup (two pumps of [url=]Abercrombie[/url] each for a tall, three of each for a grande or four of each for a Venti), one shot of espresso for a tall or two [url=]Abercrombie And Fitch Kids Deutschland[/url] shots for a grande or Venti and a topping of whipped cream and salted caramel bits. If you try one, let us know what you think.
