Until about a year ago, we were still using dryer sheets, and it made me so sad. Every natural anti-static solution we tried just wasn’t good enough.

Ditching those nasty dryer sheets for good really amped up our search, and after a lot of digging, Dave found something that works! Click here for the homemade dryer sheet tutorial!
