Are Dryer Sheets Necessary?

Okay, let’s be real. The cost of laundry can get pretty expensive and it can be pretty hard on the environment when you think of chemicals that are going into the earth and also the waste from laundry going into the landfill.

I was talking about finding an alternative to dryer sheets with my coworker one day and she told me about wool dryer balls. She explained that the balls are made up of wool and that the wool reduces static electricity just like dryer sheets and that you can put essential oils on the balls to freshen clothes.

It’s only about $10 for 6 on Amazon so I thought I would give it a try. Not only did I like them I LOVED THEM! They are reusable so I can literally use them for years! Say goodbye to dryer sheet waste and cost! These save me about $20 bucks a year but more importantly they reduce the amount of harsh chemicals the earth and my family is exposed to all while reducing waste from the dryer sheets themselves. How cool?

I’m a changed woman. I will never go back! 😛
