Sorry, i didnt have the patience to look through all the searches that came up... heres my problem:
I'm allergic to the scent of fabric softener sheets... i need them to reduce static in my hubbys clothes... anyone know where i can buy unscented ones, or even more natural ones? This is for a girl who cant even walk down the laundry detergent aisle without getting sick... I appreciate your help, in advance!!

Have you looked into dryer balls?

Or what about liquid softner to put in theplastic balls in your washer. they work well too.
When I run out of liquid softner I usr hair conditioner. If your not alergic to anything in your laundryt detergent area, I would use that sometimes too.

i read that you can get a quirt bottle of vinegar and water and just put a few squirts on the laundry when you load it into the dryer. never tried it, but its cheap enough to try.

You can use hair conditioner, put on washrag and toss in dryer.

Downy now has a Sensitive and Free liquid softener that I use. I have skin issues so this has been great for me!

thanks again ladies, i found Bounce free dryer sheets at the store yesterday! They have a bit of a scent, but NOWHERE near the scent of regular dryer sheets :D

I have a family with various scent and skin sensitivities here. If the bounce brand does not work for you, All makes a "free and clear" version as well. No dies or perfumes. Where I'm at, it's also cheaper than the bounce. They also make a detergent that is great, if you don't make your own.

I like just using vinegar. I still sometimes get static with man-made fibres, but the rest is pretty good.

thanks again ladies-- so far the bounce is working out well-- i never usually have problems with actual detergents, i just cant handle the scent of the dryer sheets anymore! I don't make my own detergent, but im starting to think maybe i should!

Sometimes putting baking soda in the rinse water helps get rid of the excess detergent, which is what causes clothes to be stiff.
