House & Home / 3 days ago Back To Top

Evidently, one of the ladies who lives in my apt. complex asked me about my dryer sheets and when I

do my laundry as she lives on the first floor right by the dryer vent. I talked to her 2 days later as to why. She said that some of them have FORMALDEHYDE
in them and it sets off her migraines. I told her that I will no longer use them and she suggested rolling up an aluminum ball and put that in the dryer. Can someone explain what the aluminum does? Thanks

Update: October 22, 2014.
I think what I'll do is get a detergent that has the fabric softener added to it and not worry about dryer sheets, aluminum balls, etc. etc.. Thanks ladies ! Just as a side not I just visited my massage person and he said he had a friend who used an aluminum foil ball inside of his new dryer and left only to come back and his house was burnt down. It started a spark war inside of the dryer. I definitely don't want to burn down my apt. complex.
