Wool dryer balls vs. dryer sheets!
Avoiding the chemicals in dryer sheets by using some of these laundry room tactics:
1. Add a quarter cup of white vinegar to your washer’s rinse cycle.
2. Look for plant-based, unscented laundry detergents.
3. Add wool dryer balls to your dryer. It also cuts down on drying time. 4. You can add a few drops of organic, therapeutic-grade lavender or peppermint oil to the balls for a light, natural fragrance.
WebMD reports fabric softeners and dryer sheets are very allergenic and can cause eczema, which appears as dry, itchy skin. Dryer sheets contain fragrance and volatile organic compounds can also cause respiratory irritation.
