Just say no…to dryer sheets

I have abandoned dryer sheets for good. After a tip from a friend, I did a little research of my own on how those good smelling sheets can effect your health. Check out this article.

The next question was what to use in its place. Wool balls. That’s right…wool balls. You can find laundry balls here. I bought mine at a Norwex party, but you can find cheaper options online.

What does everyone love about dryer sheets? The smell. We have been conditioned to believe that items have to have a fresh scent in order to be clean, but doesn’t the absence of smell mean clean. If you really need the smell good, you can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil before drying a load.

Do your own research and decide for yourself if abandoning dryer sheets is in the best interest of your family as well.
