Why should you toss them?
Although some people love the scent, unfortunately dryer sheets contain harmful chemicals that adhere to your clothing, skin and vent into the air.
Many dryer sheets ( and most topical products including name baby brands) contain fragrance and other chemicals that can trigger asthma and serve as a hormone disruptor. Check out this study .Evidence from study suggests that EDCs can affect the reproductive and nervous system. Right now 1 of 8 couples suffer from infertility. We need to keep in mind that our largest organ is our skin! We need to be intentional in what it is we are putting on our skin and our childrens.
What options do we have?
We use wool balls in our home instead of the dryer sheets. Making slow and steady changes has been fun. Switching from dryer sheets to wool balls was so easy and inexpenive. Not to mention these wool balls last years. You read right, years!
We add a few drops of our favorite oils: Lavander, Lemon Grass or Purification are our current favorites
Have you used wool balls before?
