To me really, this is a no brainer! You can find wool dryer balls almost everywhere. They all come in natural packaging- no plastic AND there are no harmful side effects from using them. Nor will you be overpowering your neighbours with your dryer sheet "fragrance".
Most dryer sheets contain some form of QUATS - quaternary ammonium chloride. I can't find anything good about them and lots of bad. You can read further for yourself if you wish by clicking the Quats button below - or Google it. Dryer sheets are not biodegradeable nor recylable.
There is considerable difference in pricing for the wool balls, so check around. My bag had 6 so I thought I'd share, but it turns out you might need all 6 if you do a lot of laundry in a day or do really BIG loads. I'll be fine! I've had no static cling issues at all and it does say you can do a little drop of an essential oil into the wool if you are missing a fragrance. I haven't done any research on that, so make sure any oil you use is not heat sensitive.
