This article discusses how fabric softeners and dryer sheets can be harmful to fabrics, washing machines, human health, or the environment and suggests using natural wool dryer balls instead. Fabric softeners and dryer sheets are chemical-laden products that damage the structural integrity of clothing and linen; they leave waxy deposits that make towels less absorbent; damage microfiber towels, athletic gear, and children's sleepwear; and inhibit the wicking ability of athletic gear. These products also reduce the flame-retardant properties of children's sleepwear and can irritate sensitive skin. Additionally, dryer sheets leave a waxy residue on the interior of the drum that clogs the lint filter and reduces the efficiency of the dryer. Heritage Park Laundry Essentials recommends using their natural wool dryer balls as an alternative. Made from 100% pure wool, these naturally fluff and soften laundry; minimize static; can be reused for months; and are biodegradable. Heritage Park wool dryer balls are a safe, environmentally friendly way to soften clothes and home linen.

The article from Heritage Park Laundry Essentials discusses why most wool doesn’t need to be washed in detergent containing lanolin. Although lanolin helps protect wool coats from elements, pure lanolin creates a water-repellent barrier that is not desirable for most garments. Detergent with lanolin should only be used for outerwear or other external layers that require a waterproof barrier. Lanolin hampers wool's breathable and moisture-wicking properties that make wool so comfortable and cozy when used on items such as sweaters, socks, lingerie, long underwear, or loungewear. The article recommends using a gentle, pH-neutral detergent that is enzyme-free and made for laundering natural fibers like Silk and Wool Detergent from Heritage Park Laundry Essentials. The article also provides tips on how to hand or machine wash wool garments.
