My Dryer Sheets Are Made From Vegetables.

Did you know that in the emergency room there is an actual term for the rash caused by typical dryer sheets known as “Bounce Blush”?


( this just horrifies me )

Natural Health Magazine featured a small blurb on dryer sheets it said:

Conventional dryer sheets coat clothes with wax and perfumes and are very slow to break down once they’re discarded.”

Consider a 100% veggie-derived dryer sheet that is completely  fragrance free, biodegradable, recyclable and effective.

Another hazard that many folks are not aware of is that the waxy build up from conventional dryer sheets leaves a residue on the lint screen that can actually cause fires!

When was the last time you cleaned your dryer’s lint screen?

  1. This is so surprising that dryer sheets can be so harmful..nobody would have even thought of it. it is coated with wax n perfumes. It can very bad for the skin..it doesn’t get cleaned well as you said, and even catches fire..I’ll definitely take that test to check out its cleanliness.and from now on i would prefer to use biodegradable dryer sheets. Thank you so much for spreading this news.
