Many people do not realize that dryer sheets are loaded with chemicals that are toxic to our bodies. These chemicals have been linked to cancer, Alzheimers disease and many other health problems. You can see the link below to read about the chemicals in dryer sheets. Some healthier alternatives to use for softening your clothes are: adding 1/4 cup of baking soda to the wash, adding 1/4 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle or buying dryer sheets at a health food store that are made with soy. Also, it has been found that dryer sheets take a very, very long time to breakdown in landfills.
