Reusable Dryer Sheets

Updated on December 30, 2010

Stop the Waste with Earth Friendly Reusable Dryer Sheets!

Your ordinary throw-away dryer sheets can have some serious negative health effects, from irritating the mucous membranes to benzyl chemicals that can irritate the respiratory system. For a more earth friendly alternative, Chartreuse has introduced reusable dryer sheets to their product line. These sheets will not ruin your clothing or your dryer, and won't irritate your skin! You'll also be throwing away less product, and releasing less harmful contaminants into the environment.

About these Reusable Dryer Sheets

Facts and info

Reusable Dryer Sheets from Chartreuse

$14.95 (pack of two)

These reusable dryer sheets will work effectively wet or dry for 500 loads. Toss both of the dryer sheets into the dryer and dry as normal. The weave of these sheets conducts the static out of clothing, and won't contain the chemical residue often left behind from normal dryer sheets. For best results, it is suggested that you dry a mix of natural and synthetic fabrics in the dryer (nylons and other synthetics cause static -- natural clothing does not).

One key thing to note about the dryer sheets is that they need to be washed every 3 or 4 times or so to clean off the fibers inside of them. You can even use them when they are damp, but either give them a rinse or throw them in with the laundry (in a cold wash)!

Compare the Price Between Reusable Dryer Sheets and the Traditional

You'll save money with this eco friendly option!

A price comparison of reusable dryer sheets vs the traditional dryer sheets

Right now, Bounce dryer sheets are on Amazon for around $20.64 for a 3-pack of 120.

So, that's 360 sheets for $20.64.

Chartreuse's earth friendly reusable dryer sheets are less money at $14.95 for two, and they last 500 loads. Consider that you may be using more than one laundry sheet in your load right now as well! That's under 3 cents per load for reusable dryer sheets, and almost 6 cents per sheet for the traditional kind. The savings will add up, and you'll be a little healthier and greener.

      I have never seen dryer sheets in New Zealand (perhaps they exist...I'm not sure) but I have heard of them so it was interesting to find your lens:)

      They sound fine..... but I just add 1/2 cup of vinegar to my rinse cycle it works as a natural softener for your laundry plus keeps your washer and hoses clean.

      [in reply to mulberry] They're actually unscented, but you can add your own essential oils (just a drop) to give them a light scent if you prefer!

      Sound interesting, are they scented in any way? I don't use dryer sheets generally, but just on occasion in the winter.
