Laundry Soap Comparison
The color is dye/chemicals, thick gunk is filler..... which also coats your pipes, washer and infiltrates into skin, by passing the liver and directly entering the blood stream. On the other hand clear means just clean clothes!

Say no to Fabric Softener and Dryer Sheets
Why? Below is a list common chemicals found the them!

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–Linked to headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, depression, as well as disorders of the brain and nervous system
4.  Chloroform–Chloroform is on the Environmental Protection Agency’s Hazardous Waste list because it has been identified as a carcinogen and neurotoxin (toxic to the brain and nervous system)
5.  Ethanol–also on the EPA’s Hazardous Waste list for its ability to cause brain and nervous system disorder
6.  Ethyl Acetate–causes headaches and is on the EPA Hazardous Waste list
7.  Linalool–in studies, this chemical caused loss of muscle coordination, nervous system and brain disorders, and depression
8.  Pentane–causes headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, drowsiness, and depression
Norwex offer's two solutions for soft clothes.      
                                                                                    Fluff and Tumble wool balls (set of 3)
Food grade plastic Dryer Balls (set of 2)
These dryer balls both remove the the use of chemicals to soften your clothes while shortening dry time! I personally use both sets in my dryer, the results are amazing every time.

You will want to dry like clothing together, by placing quick drying items in with say for instance towels or jeans, which take longer to dry, you will end up with static. Remember heat is what is causing the static in the first place. Keeping those tips in mind you will want to watch those really quick items closely...they may only take 5-10 minutes. Each dryer is different....you will find the right time!

Many enjoy adding essential oils to the dryer balls. This will add a scent many have grown accustom too! Lavender is a favorite I hear from my clients....
