Eco tip: wool dryer balls
I learned about wool dryer balls via a thread on one of the diaper forums and ordered my very own (a party of 1) to test out. Apparently you should have ideally 3-4 but given I have such a small dryer I noticed a difference with even just the one. Wool dryer balls are a natural clothes softener and they shorten your drying time significantly. Spare yourself the multiple trips to the store for boxes of fabric softener sheets and jugs, these are much nicer and better I think for those with sensitive skin. Etsy.com is the easiest place in my opinion to get them and I highly recommend them as an eco friendly upgrade to your usual laundry routine.
