DIY Rolling Hamper by Using Toy Cars
If your kids have some spare toy cars, put them to good use and attach them to the bottom of your hamper for instant rolling storage. Just be sure to get the toys within the same sizes to keep things balanced.
DIY Reusable Dryer Sheets
Instead of buying expensive dryer sheets, why not make your own reusable ones? You’ll just need to have a bunch of sponges, a plastic container, water, and fabric softener.
Begin by filling the container with water and softener with an equal amount. Cut the sponges in half and place them into the container allowing them to absorb the mixture. When you need them, just wring out the sponge completely, and then toss it into the dryer and dry normally. When done, put back the dehydrated sponge into the mixture and use it again later.
