1) Years back a person told me that if you wrap a dryer sheet around your belt/belt hoops on your pants that bugs won't "bother" you. Also if you don't want bugs in your tent or RV while camping put a few dryer sheets around. Well I tried it and it works....then I thought to myself .....WHY does it work????
You guessed it there are many toxins in dryer sheets! They're not good for people either ! I haven't used dryer sheets or fabric softeners for many, many years now.
2) Also there are so many people in my neighborhood that drench their clothes in smelly stuff. I smell the horribly strong fabric sheet scents eminating from their dryer vents of their houses...it is so strong that I can only imagine what it is doing to me, and my family, especially my kids and the environment. People equate clean with a fresh scent, but clean means no scent. Your clothes shouldn't smell unless you want to make a natural sachet of cedar,(cedar shavings can cause respiratory issues if inhaled... use carefully) lavendar or some other natural scent that is pleasing to you and place it in the drawer/closet where your clothes are stored. Please use real all natural scents if you want your clothes to have a pleasing scent for your health and your family's health as well.
