My usual weekend routine includes doing four or five loads of laundry. I use fabric softener sheets in the dryer to help reduce static cling. I like the ones that are lightly fragranced. Sometimes I have to cut the sheets, as one sheet is sometimes too strong. I know there are a lot of problems out there for people who have allergies and sensitivities to perfumes and fragrances, so I try to be mindful of that when I purchase household products.
My husband and I were checking out new and different fragrances for dryer sheets, and let me tell you - there are many! We found one that was quite nice. We found a relaxing aromatherapy lavender scent that seemed to be not too overpowering, and quite pleasant. This is a President's Choice brand, and we had never tried it before. The back of the box states, "These dryer sheets add a soothing and relaxing fragrance of lavender, vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli to your laundry". I have used these dryer sheets and they work well and make your clothes and towels smell really good.
Simple pleasures can be added to your everyday routines. A little change can make a big difference. The calming scent of lavender is said to have a beneficial effect on the nervous system, aiding in relaxation. I am feeling more relaxed already!
Have a great, relaxing day.
