Laundry Without Dryer Sheets?
Hey there!

Kara the mom nurse here! I have had some people ask me before if I use dryer sheets, and the answer is NO!!! 

I used to use dryer sheets, it would help with the static cling and make the clothes smell nice. It was about 7 years ago when I stopped buying dryer sheets and I won't ever go back to them!!!

The dryer sheets have so many chemicals in them and they aren't even listed on the box. They build up on your removable lint liner, and can cause FIRES. 

Anyways, I don't want a fire in my dryer so I don't use them anymore, and I don't want those nasty chemicals leeching into my skin either so I don't use them.

I have used wool dryer balls with essential oils on them for scent, or you can make a stack of rags soaking in vinegar with essential oils added in for scent. 

For static, you can use a ball of tin-foil about the size of a baseball thrown in. I haven't tried this one before, so let me know what you think if you go ahead and try that one. 

I just deal with the static. I honestly don't even care if the clothes smell good anymore either, as long as they smell clean and not dirty I am SO glad we don't use toxic chemicals that can be absorbed by your biggest organ- SKIN! 

So ditch the nasty dryer sheets and opt for a more gentle approach!!!
