Funny how once you start thinking about where products come from and why you even use them that you start to make changes. For the longest time my laundry routine was: Tide, Downie softener and Bounce dryer sheets. Not once did I think about the evil company Proctor and Gamble is, because they test on animals – they drop chemicals right into the eyes of rabbits. This makes me beyond angry.
Nor did I even question Bounce. Did you know there’s gelatin in dryer sheets. Yes, that is pretty nasty if you think about it. Now I use an eco friendly laundry liquid and I measure to the correct line instead of just filling the cup lid. It makes a difference when you use products correctly and it’s amazing how the product lasts that way.
I’ve replaced the dryer sheets with Nellie’s Dryer Balls – PVC free.
I’ve tried dollar store dryer balls before, the blue round ones with small nubs, but they just kept the static away. Nellie’s dryer balls PVC free actually make clothes softer. I was very impressed. Right away I could tell the difference and I really felt like I was in an over dramatic laundry commercial. I pulled a shirt out from the dryer, held it to my face, smelled it, felt the softness and smiled. Yes, I like laundry a little more these days. I’m sure no one enjoys the folding part.
Glad I bought this product over continuously buying dryer sheets and having my clothes tumble in beef fat. Ugh. I’d take this any day.
