Make the Switch for the Planet!
Dryer sheets and fabric softeners contain harsh chemicals that can be released into the air, water, and soil! The chemicals in fabric softener are applied to your laundry before being washed out with the dirty water. Depending on where you live, this water is then treated in a city water system or contained in a septic system. There is always potential for these chemicals to be leached into soil and other water bodies and systems.
Dryer sheets are not much better! They not only create unnecessary waste that cannot be recycled, but the heat activated chemicals that collects static and release fragrance chemicals can pollute the air in your home and have an impact on your health.
Make the Switch for Your Health!
Those same chemicals that can pollute the air and water, can be harmful to your skin, lungs, and even your reproductive system! When breathed in or put in contact with your skin, chemicals like quaternary ammonium compounds, fragrances, preservatives, and colors can have long lasting impacts. Many of these chemicals can be triggers for asthma or respiratory allergies. Other concerns include skin irritants/allergic reactions, impacts on your reproductive system, and even potential links to cancer (Geller, 2016).
