Last week I posted a tip about using tennis balls in your dryer to eliminate static. I found a couple of tennis balls in our house that were close to 20 years old and had been play toys for an indoor cat. They worked well and I didn’t notice any toxic smells with them.
But a comment to last week’s post told a different story. My guess is that the modern tennis ball has some more toxic ingredients in it. So, I tried Linda’s suggestion that static wasn’t really a problem with 100% cotton. Nearly every thing I wear is 100% cotton. This week I did laundry without any “static eliminator” and was pleased to learn that I really didn’t need one. No Static!
