If you haven’t done so already, DITCH THE EXTREMELY TOXIC FABRIC SOFTENER AND DRYER SHEETS! Please! It’s one of the top 3 most toxic household items! Use save, natural wool dryer balls instead. (and get yours free).
Wool dryer balls enable you to dry your laundry more efficiently — with shorter cycles and decreased heat. If you’re still drying on high heat for longer times, that will increase static cling.
As the weather gets colder, you may experience static cling despite reducing your settings. In that case, add a safety pin to your dryer balls to minimize it!
How/why does this work? It creates a “grounding” effect within your dryer. Different fabrics rubbing together create electrostatic charge. The wool balls collect charged electrons during the drying cycle, which spread out onto the metal safety pins which are highly conductive. Your dryer’s metal drum is also conductive and when the metal pin touches the metal of your dryer drum, the built-up electrons are discharged into the drum and away from your fabric.
