6 KILLER Reasons to Ditch Dryer Sheets!


6 KILLER Reasons to Ditch Dryer Sheets! 

If you or someone you know suffers with ... 
 skin issues,  asthma,  allergies,  headaches and   MANY other health issues... including cancer...
or if you would like to help prevent those health problems...
this is something you MUST know!

When people use typical dryer sheets, they are coating their clothes with  artificial chemical perfumes. These fragrance chemicals are extremely toxic. They are known carcinogens that cause liver damage and cancer in mammals.
 
In a recent study performed by UW professor Dr. Anne Steinemann, a research team conducted a small study to understand the effects of fragrances in dryer sheets. The results discovered more than 25 VOCs emitted from dryer vents, with highest concentrations of acetaldehyde, acetone, and ethanol (two of which are considered carcinogenic). To put it into context, one of the carcinogenic VOCs, acetaldehyde, had emissions that would represent 3% of total acetaldehyde emissions from automobiles in the study area. This is a major omission of toxic chemicals.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry-generated Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), the following is a list of chemicals in fabric softener products, most in untested combinations.

1.  Alpha-Terpineol–This chemical has been linked to disorders of the brain and nervous system, loss of muscle control, depression, and headaches

2.  Benzyl acetate–Benzyl acetate has been linked to cancer of the pancreas

3.  Benzyl alcohol–This upper respiratory tract irritant can cause central nervous system (CNS) disorders, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and dramatic drops in blood pressure.

4.  Chloroform–Neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic. Really toxic to your brain. Inhaling its vapors may cause loss of consciousness, nausea, headache, vomiting, and/or dizziness, drowsiness.

5.  Ethanol– Another fabric softener ingredient which is on the EPA’s Hazardous Waste list and linked to CNS disorders.

6.  Ethyl Acetate–causes headaches and is on the EPA Hazardous Waste list

The dryer sheets we recommend, use biodegradable softening agents and are scented with essential oils including chamomile, geranium, and cedar wood as well as patchouli and tangerine. 

I invite you to learn how to swap out toxic products AFFORDABLY with a company that GUARANTEES that they will NEVER use any harsh, harmful or toxic ingredients in ANY of their products.
