Don’t Use Dryer Sheets, They Can Cause Hormone Imbalance, Respiratory Problems And Even Caner


A lot of commercial dryer sheets are full of different types of toxic chemicals such as Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Acetate, Linalool and Chloroform. 

They aren’t good for you and your health.

Moreover they can be in contact with your skin and the fumes are toxic when they are heated or warmed. 

All of these toxins transfer immediately in the most sensitive part of the neurological centers of the brain and cause chaos.

Artificial Fragrances

When you use dryer sheets, you coat your clothes with different artificial chemical perfumes. 





They are actually toxic chemicals also known as carcinogens which can cause cancer in mammals and liver damage.

Dr. Anne Steinemann, a UW professor performed one study and the research team conducted a study in order to understand the effects of fragrances used in the laundry products (dryer sheets and detergents). 

It was discovered that there are more than 25 VOCs which are emitted from dryer vents and they have the highest concentrations of acetone, ethanol and acetaldehyde – it is considered that 2 of them are carcinogenic.

Acetaldehyde, which is one of the carcinogenic VOC’s, has emissions which represent even 3% of the entire acetaldehyde emissions from automobiles in this study area and this is a huge omission of toxic chemicals.

According to the industry-generated Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and the U.S. 

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) there is a list of chemicals that can be found in fabric softener products. 





Their combinations are not tested.

1. Alpha-Terpineol – it is a chemical which has been related to different brain and nervous system disorders, headaches, depression and loss of muscle control.

2. Benzyl acetate – it is connected to pancreas cancer.

3. Benzyl alcohol – it is a chemical which can upset the upper respiratory tract and can cause disorders of the central nervous system (CNS), nausea, headache, vomiting, dramatic drops, dizziness and high blood pressure.

4. Chloroform – it is anesthetic, neurotoxic, and carcinogenic. 

It is extremely toxic to the brain. 

If you inhale its vapors it can lead to headache, drowsiness, loss of consciousness, nausea, vomiting, and/or dizziness.



5. Ethanol – this is another ingredient in the fabric softeners and it is on the list of EPA’s Hazardous Waste. 

It is related to disorders of the central nervous system.

6. Ethyl Acetate – it can cause headaches and it is also found on the EPA Hazardous Waste list.

7. Linalool – it is a chemical that can cause loss of muscle coordination, depression and brain disorders.

8. Pentane – it can cause nausea, headaches, depression, dizziness, drowsiness and fatigue.

However you can use something else instead of the toxic dryer sheets? They are called wool balls. Wool balls are 100% natural and extremely effective for eliminating wrinkles and static cling.
