How-to: Homemade Dryer Sheet Replacement

Homemade Dryer Sheet

Have you been wanting to ditch the toxic dryer sheets? My husband and I came up with a homemade dryer sheet replacement to keep us static-free without harsh chemicals!

My husband Dave can’t stand even a little bit of static. Even in summer he is uncomfortable! We have been trying for years to stop using toxic dryer sheets for good, and we finally found something that works! We have tried all manner of store-bought dryer balls to no avail, but the homemade hearts pictured above are doing the trick!

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. Then, last August I found out that I was pregnant and along with not changing the litterbox anymore, I decided it was time to ditch those dryer sheets for good. Coating our own clothes in toxins was one thing, but there was no way I was going to expose our little one to potential carcinogens and endocrine disruptors.

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!
