Sheets to the Wind—Save $40
Eliminate the use of conventional store-bought dryer sheets and save up to $40 per year. You'll not only conserve the resources used to make the dryer sheets, but you'll keep yourself and your family from being exposed to the chemicals they contain, some of which are known carcinogens—did you know dryer sheets can be used to repel ants?
Make these do-it-yourself dryer sheets:
Place a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil on a piece of wet cloth and put it in the dryer with your clothes, or fill a small, sealable canvas bag with dried herbs or natural potpourri—lavender smells great—and toss in with wet laundry.
