With sensitive skin, such as eczema, it's important to minimize the amount of products that you come into contact each day. One way to do this is to use fragrance free laundry soap and fabric softener. I've tried many dryer sheets that say they are fragrance free, but they still irritate my skin. So, I had high hopes when I found the Simplicity dryer sheets. They are unscented and non-toxic, both good qualities since I have a puppy that loves to grab them when they hit the floor.
The Simplicity sheets feel totally different from other dryer sheets I've used. They feel like soft paper, a totally different texture from the standard sheets. They feel cleaner than the others, without that coating of whatever it is that makes the sheets smell good and feel soft. That's the problem. They don't make the clothes feel quite as soft as the regular dryer sheets. Also, there are times when I hear a little static as I pull the clothes from the dryer, a problem that dryer sheets are supposed to eliminate. It's not a huge problem, but one I didn't expect.
On the upside, these sheets are biodegradable, made from 100% renewable resources and there is no animal testing. And, I'm happy to say that this product is made in the USA, something that seems hard to find these days.
I just glanced at the box and they recommend that you tear each sheet in half and toss both halves into different areas of the machine to increase effectiveness. I was not aware of that (who reads fabric softener boxes for instructions?), so I will try it that way next time. I have a feeling the results will be better. Either way, I will continue to use this product.
