Chemical Free Dryer

I always find it alarming how much chemicals there are in the products we buy – chemicals that not only hurt us physically but hurt the environment as well.

I’ve been slowly replacing all my regular products with “chemical free” products and I’ve been pleasantly surprised with how well they work.  One example is fabric softeners and disposable dryer sheets (such as Bounce).

Did you know that most fabric softeners and disposable dryer sheets are made up of toxic chemicals, which gets transferred to your clothes? When I think about babies and children wearing these clothes and possibly putting them in their mouths, it is quite disturbing.

I’ve switched from disposable dryer sheets to a product called “Static Eliminator” which is reusable dryer sheets. They are 100% hypo-allergenic, environmentally friendly and work really well to reduce static and keep clothing soft. The best news is that they last for more than 500 loads, which means you save money too!

You can find our dryer sheets at any Home Hardware Store (called Natura Static Free Dryer Sheets)  or at your local health food store. If they don’t have them in stock, they should be able to order them in. Alternatively, visit the manufacturer’s web site for this at and other environmentally friendly products.
