Fabric Softener

Just thought I'd share for you fabric softener lovers...

I found a fabric softener that is free of shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, soy, sesame, wheat, gluten, and corn (company confirmed). It is called Eco-Select, and I found it at my WalMart. They are biodegradable dryer sheets (which I don't like as much as liquid) and are completely natural. They have an unscented version and scented (where the scents are derived from all natural essential oils).

They were as cheap as Bounce's unscented ones and corn free (which is great for us as Downy is not, though we continue to use it).

They are in a light blue boring looking box with all the other dryer sheets.

I just started using these. If you put some plain white vinegar in the wash (fabric softner dispenser) things work out even better! I add a few drops of essential oils to the vinegar, but you don't have to! Your towels will be so fluffy and dry alot better!

Thanks, Robin! I've used vinegar before, but it is also corn derived (go figure!), so it's not much better for us.

Great to hear that! I am going to try them as soon as I need more! I also got that organic sugar and catsup yesterday and I even found a natural flea/tick mosquito repellent-very similar to Advantix).It smells great and does not make him sick like the other kind did when I tried it. So now we don't have to use flea collars anymore! Yeah for natural products!
