Dryer sheets are hard to give up when you’re aiming for a more toxin-free lifestyle. It seems like the only options you have are to keep using these toxic little sheets (with ingredients like Chloroform, Benzyl Alcohol and Ethyl Acetate), or settle for static-y, scratchy towels, bedding and clothes.
Luckily, there is another (and so much better) option!
You might have heard of the subscription service MightyFix from MightyNest. For $10/month or $110/year, you’ll receive a monthly product that’ll help you live healthier and more environmentally friendly. Shipping is free, even if you add some of the other amazing products from their site to your order!
April’s innovative household product is Wool Dryer Balls!
These things are amazing. They are made of 100% premium, organic and hand-felted New Zealand Wool, with no synthetic fibers or chemicals used. Wool dryer balls are quieter and gentler on clothing than plastic dryer balls, and they save your dryer from residues left from chemical fabric softeners. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the balls for a nice scent – I love citrus and lavender; or use them as is for a fragrance-free load.
In addition, these wool dryer balls:
- Shorten drying time, saving on energy and utility bills (use 3 balls for small/medium load, 5-6 for large)
- Soften laundry naturally (great for those with sensitive skin & babies) and leave absolutely NO static
- Last for thousands of loads, replace dryer sheets, save money
- Save the landfill from disposable dryer sheets

I have never used dryer sheets! To this day I can’t stand the smell of them..nothing worse than being trapped in a car or elevator with someone that smells like fabric softener. I’ve always known my clothes could feel softer but refused to use all those chemicals. These sound like a great option. Thanks Arsy!
