Are there any alternatives to dryer sheets that won't irritate my skin?

I have sensitive skin and can not use dryer sheets.

Hello Hayden,

Most dryer sheets are made of a polyester sheet that is covered with chemicals.

Here are all-natural ways to reduce static cling:

Add 1/4 cup (or less) of either vinegar or borax to your laundry wash cycle or add 1/4 cup vinegar to the rinse cycle.

Look for dryers sheets made with vegetable-based surfactants, salt and natural scents. Seventh Generation manufactures such a product.

Use wool dryer balls. Here is the link that shows you how to make your own.

Hope this helps.
