How to choose sustainable fabric softener
When shopping for fabric softener, we recommend choosing a product that’s made with plant-based quats and free of synthetic fragrances. Our favorite fabric softeners are certified by USDA Biopreferred, EWG, EPA Safer Choice, and Leaping Bunny or PETA.
The highest scoring fabric softener
Avoid using liquid fabric softeners and try wool dryer balls instead. Fabric softeners are made with quats that are either associated with deforestation from palm oil production or polluted air from extracting petroleum.
