I switched from Downy dryer sheets because we're sensitive to fragrances and I didn't like the gunk they left on my dryer screen. Please take note - these do not work like the downy-type in that they don't leave your clothes feeling slick, which some people (like my husband) relate to softness. The slick feeling is from the chemicals in the dryer sheets that adhere to your clothes. These chemicals actually make your towels less absorbent.
These sheets soften my towels and jeans and now that we're used to the difference we prefer it. Because of our sensitivities to fragrance we prefer the free and clear, I tried the lavender and the citrus and the scent, altho natural, was still overwhelming to us.
I'll repeat, these will NOT give you the same slick feeling that the downy-type do but they also do not coat your clothing with chemicals and they do make a difference in having a stiff towel to dry with or a soft, absorbent one.
Oh, yes . . .I can get several uses from one sheet and they're compostable.
