the scary truth about dryer sheets

Oh, dryer sheets. Beyond using you for laundry, I used to put you in drawers to keep them fresh! What I didn’t realize is that I was pumping chemicals, toxins and pollutants into my home and body.

People may think dryer sheets are harmless. “They’re dryer sheets! How harmful could they be?”

You know how they used to think smoking was safe? {Doctors even recommended certain brands!} But then over time they realized it was actually not safe at all?

Well, it’s time we stop going along with “the ways things have always been” and open up our eyes to just how harmful things like dryer sheets are.

Do you or your children suffer from respiratory issues, runny noses, asthma, skin issues, migraines or gastrointestinal symptoms? Turns out the 7 hazardous air pollutants + 25 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are not safe for human beings that are found in dryer sheets are likely contributing to your lack of health and wellness.
