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.
