Eco-Dryer Balls- Green Living Tip Brought to you by Ideal Bite
Follow the bottom of this screen, where we link you up to dryer balls that fluff and soften your laundry - free of the toxic plastic PVC, and no disposable dryer sheets necessary. The cash + eco savings = something to croon about.
- Striking a waste-free chord. You can reuse dryer balls over and over - most will last you several years. And attention vegetarians: most dryer sheets contain tallow, an animal byproduct.
- More (bank)notes. Boxes of dryer sheets can cost $5-$10 for 50 washes; some of our options are even free.
- Tuning out PVC. Your average dryer ball is made from PVC, which releases carcinogens during production.
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: Kevin has touted the greatness of reusable dryer balls to me many times, but I still haven't made the switch over. There is a benefit, however, if you are like me and still use the old fashioned dryer sheets: kindling. Buy the chem-free, non-toxic, unscented kind and save them after you use them instead of throwing them in the trash- the dryer lint too. Take your used sheets & lint with you when you go camping, or just have a bonfire in your backyard; the sheets & lint are light (easy to travel with) and super flammable so they make perfect kindling. Please just remember to use common fire safety! ~Jen
