Seventh Generation Dryer Sheets

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Eucalyptus & lavender-smelling, brown, paper sheets that are recyclable, compostable, made with plant-derived softening agents, unbleached, and chlorine-free? I think I'm in love. It's been bothering me for awhile now that my dryer sheets end up in the garbage can, and since I'm trying to eliminate as much garbage as possible these days, when I saw that Seventh Generation
made these dryer sheets, I grabbed a box right away.

You see, I'm a dryer sheet kind of girl. Ideally, I'd be line-drying all my laundry just like this woman, but since I'm not quite there, dryer sheets are a total must as I can't tolerate wearing clothes full of static electricity. Now I can compost not only my dryer lint, but my dryer sheets, too!

I think Juniper likes the idea of this, too--don't you?

Hey Karli,

Did you try just using white vinegar as a rinse in place of dryer sheets? Just curious. That is what I do, and the only thing I have noticed a little bit of static in is the kids' fleece pajamas. Otherwise, it works great!

We've been using these reusable cloth static eliminators for a few years and they still seem to be working!

Also, I've heard that over drying can contribute to static so we also turned the heat down and use the least possible drying time.

The other day, Ellie asked me if it wouldn't be a better idea to hang our cloth napkins up to dry instead of using the dryer...I have NO IDEA how she came up with such a brilliant idea even though I'd LOVE to have one of those fancy shmancy drying racks ;-)
