My DIY laundry sponges are a great alternative to toxic dryer sheets. Dryer sheets are coated with toxic chemicals, which then coat your clothes. These chemicals get on your skin and can cause allergies, rashes, and other issues. Have you ever poked your nose into a newly opened box of dryer sheets? The fake, synthetic fragrance will almost knock you off your feet. It’s disgusting, and the “fragrance” is made up of hundreds of chemicals, many of which are can be horrible for your health. My DIY laundry sponges will impart both fragrance and softness to your laundry.
