Perfume-Free dryer sheets?

I started using perfume & dye-free laundry detergents about 5 years ago because my skin started getting senstive. Unfortunately, I can’t find my favorite brand here in Kirksville (Arm & Hammer FabriCare Perfume & Dye Free), so I’ve been making due with Cheer Free.

But I defeat my efforts everytime I use dryer sheets, which are infused with perfumes. Are there any perfume-free dryer sheets or static-reducing alternatives out there?

Yes indeed…Bounce makes a perfume- and dye-free product, creatively named “Bounce Free”. It works as well as the alternatives, without making your clothes smell to high heaven.

Even scent free dryer sheets are dangerous as they contain various toxic ingredients (see http://www.greatestherbsonearth.com/articles/dryer_sheets.htm). They also leave a coating on fabrics which reduces their absorbency (especially towels and fleece). An alternative is a new product called Static Eliminator which does the job without any chemicals. Go to eco-source.com or staticelimator.ca for more details.
