Why You Should NOT Use Dryer Sheets. Sure they smell good but are not a healthy choice. Here are the reasons why:

Do not use them with towels: Dryer sheets makes towels less absorbent. Avoid using dryer sheets when washing bath, kitchen, microfiber or cleaning towels or rags.

The coating from a dryer sheet can make pajamas less fire resistant.

Fabric softener is a better choice because it doesn’t have all the problems that dryer sheets have. As long as you use the right amount, clothes should come out soft and static-free. Use odor free softener. Don’t use fabric softener on pajamas, it also will make them less fire resistant.

One of the most toxic things we do, on a regular basis, is use dryer sheets. Those perfume-laden (even fragrance-free) sheets and liquid are full of toxic chemicals.

Replace your fabric softener or dryer sheets with 1/4 cup of baking soda or 1/2 cup of white vinegar to the wash during the rinse cycle. Your clothes will feel softer and look brighter without any irritating chemicals. FYI: Don’t mix vinegar with bleach. It creates dangerous fumes. FYI:  Don’t use vinegar in front loading washers. The acid in the vinegar can eat through the door seal.

For static cling: make aluminum foil balls for your dryer. All you need is two or three foil balls made with 3 or 4 square feet of aluminum foil each, mashed into a ball that is around 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Once they’re made, all you do is toss them in the dryer with your wet clothes.
