Perhaps you are already averse to using perfumey dryer sheets or annoyed by noisy dryer balls (hopefully of the non-PVC variety) but get equally annoyed with your laundry sticking together in a clumped mess after removing it from the dryer. Liquid fabric softeners with toxins and perfumes which may leave a residue on clothing are also out of the question for allergy suffers or those with sensitive skin. In addition, most softners available are not manufactured by eco-friendly or cruelty-free brands. Enter this dryer sheet system composed of only two reusable dryer “sheets” which are actually pieces of engineered fabric free of any perfumes, chemicals or residues. This dryer sheet system is a dream for those with sensitive skin, including children and babies. Each of the two sheets that are recommended for use to eliminate or reduce static, soften fabric and reduce wrinkles are billed to last for more than 500 loads! For most families, that is at least one full year of laundry so not only is this an eco-friendly option but it is also an economical one. After the first three loads of laundry the sheets pose a big convenience since you can routinely leave them in the dryer for each load. It is recommended to wash them every three months but they can be reused immediately after washing since they are effective1 wet or dry.
1Allow enough circulation in the dryer (do not overload) for the recommended two sheets per load to work optimally. Also, the sheets work better on routine loads of clothing versus large loads of towels, sheets and blankets: for large loads such as this it is recommended to couple the sheets with wool dryer balls; we like the ones here (teaser – to be featured in the coming weeks). If there are any cases of static – polyester or fleece clothing is sometimes a challenge – it is recommened to rub the clothing with one of the sheets after removing from the dryer. The manufacter guarantees no risk of spotting, staining or reduction in the clothing’s flame resistance.
