Did you know that the average American generates about 82 pounds of textile waste each year? That adds up to more than 11 million tons from the U.S. alone. The bulk of that comes from discarded clothing, like cotton t-shirts!

To upcycle your worn out tees into something useful, cut out the seams and then cut the remaining fabric into 10-inch squares that you can use to create eco-friendly DIY dryer sheets.

Soak the squares in white vinegar with a teaspoon of lavender essential oil and toss one into each dryer load instead of non-recyclable commercial dryer sheets!
