Organic DIY Fabric Softener

You would think that adding fabric softener to your wash cycle or dryer sheets in your dryer would be a good thing.  Well think again.  The commercially made fabric softeners and heat activated dryer sheets contain many chemicals that are harmful to us.

According to the health and wellness website, some of the most harmful ingredients in dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener alike include benzyl acetate (linked to pancreatic cancer), benzyl alcohol (an upper respiratory tract irritant), ethanol (linked to central nervous system disorders), limonene (a known carcinogen) and chloroform (a neurotoxin and carcinogen), among others.

So for a healthier alternative, try using organic wool dryer balls and adding some organic essential oils.  Simply put a few drops of essential oil on the wool balls, toss iorganic wool balls for your dryern the dryer and hit start.  Your clothes will come out smelling amazing and it will be non-toxic! Just be sure to always use organic oils and wool.  Never, ever use synthetic anything in your home!  You can find what you need at Amazon.
