Is it better to use fabric softener or dryer sheets?
Fabric Softener vs Dryer Sheets.
|Function||Fabric Softener||Dryer Sheets|
Are dryer sheets the same as fabric softener? Essentially dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners do the same thing, they both make fabrics feel soft and bring a fresh scent to your clothes. The obvious difference between the two is that one is used in the washing machine and the other in the dryer.
Do you need dryer sheets if you use fabric softener? Fabric softener’s better but still has problems
Fabric softener doesn’t have all the problems that dryer sheets have. As long as you use the right amount, clothes should come out soft and static-free.
Why you shouldn’t use dryer sheets? Dryer sheets can leave a coating of residue inside your dryer. The residue can get on your dryer’s sensors and interfere with its ability to properly dry. Sheets are disposable, that means you have to keep buying them and they create waste that goes into landfills.
