    Honestly, both of them are pretty bad. Both contain lots of unhealthy petrochemicals which aren’t great for you or the environment. However, you can buy more eco-friendly options (Ecover and Seventh Generation make eco-friendly versions of fabric softener sheets that use natural oils and plant extracts instead of petrochemicals.) You could also try throwing in a quarter cup of either vinegar or baking soda with the wash, it’s supposed to help soften up your clothes.

    Between the two, dryer sheets are more reusable than fabric softener.  You can use the dryer sheet for a multitude of purposes after using it for laundry- I use mine as a freshener when i run out of filters for the lid of the catbox.  You can also use the dryer sheet as a duster.

     

    After submitting this, I found a useful website on how to create your own dryer sheets using fabric softener! There you go!
