Natural Solutions for Static Cling in Laundry

Static Cling

Static Cling? Don’t waste your money on icky, toxic dryer sheets! Here are 3 natural solutions:

1. Damp Rag: Put a damp rag into the dryer at the end of the dryer cycle.

2. Safety Pins: Seriously, we had never heard of this before, but we gave it a shot, and it worked REALLY well. Just pin two safety pins on two different items in the dryer and everything comes out static free!

3. Vinegar: Just pour about 1/4 cup of white vinegar into the fabric softener dispenser on your washing machine. You should have no need for a dryer sheet — and NO, you can’t smell the vinegar.

What works the best? Hands down, the best solution {in our opinion} is combining the vinegar and the safety pins. Plus, it’s eco-friendly — and practically free!

Extra Tips
Another thing we learned is washing your clothing less frequently also helps to reduce static cling. The winter tends to increase static in clothing. Fleece jackets, polyester pants, and nylons are most prone to static cling. For whatever reason synthetic materials are more susceptible to static than natural fabrics like cotton. So, if you can, try to wash your natural fabrics separately. When washing your clothes made of synthetic materials try pulling the clothes out of the dryer while they are still a little damp to prevent them from over-drying, after all, dry conditions are a breeding ground for static, so moisture would be the obvious antidote.
