Eliminate Static Cling Without A Bunch Of Chemicals
The biggest problem with dryer sheets is that you have to buy them regularly and many of them are full of chemicals we would rather not rub all over our bodies. To remedy this problem simply wrap four to five tennis balls in aluminum foil and throw them in the dry with your clothes. The weight of the tennis balls will keep them tumbling around the dryer and the foil will stop static cling.
