Ditch the dryer sheet!
In today’s world, being totally toxin-free is nearly impossible, as toxins have infiltrated every aspect of our environment. However, there are a few things you do have control over, like what you deliberately put ON and IN your body.
Since there are no laws in place that require dryer sheets to list ingredients they use, you’re better off with one of these alternatives:
Wet a face cloth with white vinegar and throw in the dryer with your clothes for each cycle. Your clothes will smell fresh (not like French fries) and they’ll be soft and static-free. Note: For a natural and fresh scent simply add a couple of drops of your favourite essential oil onto a lonely sock!
Take an arm-length of aluminum foil and crumple it into a ball. Throw in the dryer with your clothes. It will eliminate static cling and last a long, long, long time! (You may want to keep this method away from nylon stockings…)
Put three tennis balls in the dryer along with your load and let the cycle begin! It may be a bit noisy, but it’s quite effective in reducing static cling.
