In both insistence's I noticed that the less detergent I used, the less static electricity my clothes had in the drying process. As a result of using less detergent I have also cut down on the use of dryer sheets.
I live in a cold climate so the use to dryer sheets was almost necessary because of how dry everything gets in the winter. I have now discovered however, that using less detergent is really the key to less static electricity in my clothes.
My clothes are still clean and fresh, they don't have a perfume smell to them as a result of the dryer sheets. I am saving money on laundry products.
