Simple Green: Give Up Dryer Sheets

Simple Green: Give Up Dryer Sheets

If you haven't fully given up your clothes dryer yet in favor of a clothesline, there is one small (OK, really small) thing you can do to make your laundry routine a little less wasteful. Give up the dryer sheet. We did, by accident, and we're not looking back.

We were big fans of Mrs. Meyers biodegradable dryer sheets. But then one day we ran out of them. And then we got lazy.

We kept doing laundry, but we kept forgetting to put dryer sheets on the shopping list. Now it's been months and,to be honest, our clothes don't feel any different than they did when we were using dryer sheets. Occasionally there's a little static, but nothing terrible. So we're happy to be over our dryer sheet addiction. How about you?

Has anyone else give up dryer sheets?
