Everyone loves that fresh-smelling, softness of clean laundry right out of the dryer. The important question is: Are you using toxic dryer sheets made from synthetic polyester and chemicals to achieve the results?
If so, it’s time to know that there is a natural, safer way to do your laundry.
Organic wool dryer balls contain NO toxic chemicals and can be re-used for up to 1000 loads! Wool dryer balls soften your clothes and reduce static cling -- naturally. They also speed up the drying process, which saves money, time, and energy. Because they are made of natural materials, they can be returned to the earth at the end of their life and do not need to be sent to the landfill. One last tip: dryer sheets are unregulated.
And if you have a favorite scent, apply a few drops of an essential oil to the dryer balls before placing them in the dryer. You’ll feel better about using wool dryer balls to do your laundry knowing that you’re avoiding toxins that are passed on in the clothing and in the water.
Here are some very smart reasons to ditch the dryer sheets and use organic wool dryer balls:
- Dryer sheets increase your carbon footprint
- Dryer sheets are known to contribute to air pollution
- Dryer sheets are NOT needed for cleaning
- Dryer sheets are an unnecessary expense
- Dryer sheets emit unregulated dryer exhaust
- Dryer sheets emit dangerous chemicals
A final tip about microplastics: Each time you wash your synthetic polyester clothing, microscopic plastic fibers shed from the clothing into the water. When purchasing new clothing, try to buy clothes made of natural fibers whenever possible. If you require some synthetics, wash these items as infrequently as possible to reduce the amount of microplastics you are releasing into the water.
