Dryer Sheets …. day 23
Did you know that fabric softeners and dryer sheets are known as some of the most toxic household products used today! In fact, I bet that if you really knew what you were using to clean your family’s clothes, you wouldn’t use it any more. Persuasive advertisements promise us soft, fragrant towels, sheets and clothes when we use their dryer sheets. Truth be told, these products contain a very high amount of toxic chemicals just like the the liquid fabric softeners. In fact, the chemicals are so strong, that large amounts of fragrance are used to cover up the fumes from the chemicals. I used to think that the SMELL was important. My brand of choice before Shaklee was Bounce…oh the wonderful scents I could get!! I have since realized that the scents are NOT IMPORTANT. The smells on laundry isle are even overwhelming to me…they bug my nose. Why? Because I have realized that clean…well, it DOESN’T HAVE A SMELL. There doesn’t need to be some frilly scent to mean it’s clean.
Shaklee has a veggie based dryer sheet that is a great alternative to your current dryer sheets.
What Shaklee Has to Say
Nothing’s more inherently good than soft, fresh bed sheets. Except, maybe these innovative dryer sheets. They’re veggie-based. They’re biodegradable. And they even split in two in the dryer for fair and just distribution of soft, static-free goodness to every, last humble pillowcase.
Comparable to Snuggle® and Bounce® Pure EssemcialsTM Dryer Sheets at softening and static reduction.* Plus, you can throw the whole thing in the recycling bin.
- Softens clothes and helps prevent wrinkles.
- No fragrance.
- Effectively reduces static cling.
- Uses vegetable-derived softening agents.
- Safe with all washable fabrics.
- Tear in half during the drying cycle to distribute softness throughout the load
Maybe, if we all switched to products that were healthier for us, those increasing cancer rates would actually begin to decline. It’s something to think about. Some how, some way we have all got to realize that greener is better for our bodies as well as the environment. Although we don’t know each other very well, I am betting that you are right there with me when I say that I DO NOT want to be harming my kiddos in any way, shape or form. That’s why I switched my family to Shaklee…and not just the dryer sheets! Won’t you do the same?
