Dryer Sheet Ditch & Switch

Psst... I'm going to let you in on something I wish I had learned long before I actually did.



Did you know that Dryer Sheets are one of the most TOXIC things you can have in your home?! 🤢🙅‍♀️


Your first reaction may be - Whateves 🙄... but just do a quick google search and you'll see there are plenty of studies that show this information. 🤓


Yes, it's mostly synthetic fragrances that are to blame; causing all sorts of havoc on our endocrine, respiratory and nervous systems. And a couple other shockers are that the ingredients are not always disclosed and they aren't required to have product safety testing!


And just think about it... We wear clothes ALL DAY - Every. Single. Day. So it's probably pretty important to make sure what we are using on our skin 99% of the time isn't harming us. 😆


But don't worry... I'm not here to just scare you!!! That would be mean. 😂


A super easy switch is to use Organic Wool Dryer Balls and you can even add your favorite essential oils if you'd like to have a good scent.


You can grab some dryer balls on Amazon (the ones I used are here) and add 2-5 per load (depending on size of the load). And they're reusable! 👏🏻


I like to add a drop of essential oil to each ball to make my clothes smell nice and fresh! Some of my favorite oils to use are:


🌱 Lavender

🌱 Lemongrass

🌱 Gentle Baby (perfect for baby/kids clothes & sheets)

🌱 Purification (great for stinky clothes/socks)


I also LOVE Young Living's laundry detergent. It's ultra concentrated and smells light & fresh. Best part - it's plant based!🌿
