small study to understand the effects of fragrances in laundry products (both detergent and dryer
sheets). The results discovered more than 25 VOCs emitted from dryer vents, with highest
concentrations of acetaldehyde, acetone, and ethanol (two of which are considered carcinogenic).
To put it in context, one of the carcinogenic VOC’s, acetaldehyde, had emissions that would
represent 3% of total acetaldehyde emissions from automobiles in the study area. This is a major
omission of toxic chemicals.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry-generated Material
Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) from the 1990s, the following is a list of chemicals in fabric softener
products, most in untested combinations.
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–This upper respiratory tract irritant can cause central nervous system (CNS)
disorders, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and dramatic drops in blood pressure.
4. Chloroform–Neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic. Really toxic to your brain. Inhaling its
vapors may cause loss of consciousness, nausea, headache, vomiting, and/or dizziness,
5. Ethanol– Another fabric softener ingredient which is on the EPA’s Hazardous Waste list and
linked to CNS disorders.
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
What’s the alternative to toxic dryer sheets? Wool balls. They are 100% natural and are
effective at getting rid of static cling and wrinkles, soften clothes.
