Saving Money and Your Skin!

on January 17, 2012

Tuesday’s Fit Skin tip of the day: Switch out your anti-static dryer sheets for reusable Dryer Balls!!!  Doing so will not only be saving money over and over, but saving your skin from irritating chemicals!   My favorite dryer balls are shown here ($9.99).  My husband and I have been using them for over 3 years and love them!  Using 4 dryer balls at a time seems to work the best.

4 reasons to swap out your dryer sheets right now:

  1. Possible skin irritation (from chemicals found in fabric softener). *
  2. Labeled “Not for use on children’s sleep wear, keep out of reach of toddlers and pets to avoid accidental ingestion.”*
  3. Ingestion of used or unused sheet can lead to impaction of gastrointestinal tract*
  4. Hazard rating of 1 on a scale of 0-4.*
Let’s keep these harsh chemicals far away from our skin.  Dryer balls are one of the easy ways to save for fitSkin.  What other green fitSkin tips do you have?  I would love to know!
*According to Proctor and Gamble’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) on Bounce Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets.
