This question came from Montana Girl in the form of a comment last week, during our lengthy discussion about dryer balls:


I bought dryer balls (the PVC kind) long before I realized that they were unsafe. What is an appropriate way to dispose of products like these when you don't want to keep using them, but can't throw them away either?

Of course, this problem isn't limited to dryer balls alone. What do you do, in general, when you want to replace something toxic in your home (that is not recyclable) with a non-toxic alternative?

What are your solutions?

(As an answer to the specific question: Nellie's Dryerballs have a two-year unconditional money-back guarantee, so you could just send them back to the source.)
