Ah, static cling. It seems that no matter how much we load our dryer up with dryer sheets, we can’t escape that annoying electricity that makes our clothes stick together. And, forget trying to put on that pair of pants or that cotton dress when everything is clinging together, because the sensation of static against the skin, as we all know, can be absolutely unbearable.
Good news is that one of our missions at Grab Green Home has been to create the perfect dryer sheets to end static cling once and for all. Before we get into those, let’s talk a little bit about static cling and why it occurs in the first place.
What Causes Static Cling?
Static cling is one of the more irritating byproducts of electricity, and results from friction between two dry surfaces. The same laws of physics that make a balloon stick to your head if you rub it against your hair enough, will cause your various garments to stick together when you remove them from the dryer.
What this means is that the only way to prevent static cling is to treat the materials causing it, or change the environment that they’re in. You may have noticed that some materials are more prone to cling than others, based on their charge. Polyester is particularly notorious for clinging to clothes, as well as your body on a day when the humidity is particularly low, due to its negative charge.
What are Some Tips for Reducing Static Cling?
Eliminating static cling can be done, but not with any old dryer products on the market. As is always the case, some products are more effective than others. First off, we do want to say that drying like materials with one another, such as one load for polyester and one for linen, is one method for avoiding static cling entirely. But, modern inventions have given us a more efficient solution, with dryer sheets and dryer balls that release a positive charge into the dryer, essentially neutralizing the negatively charged materials that are prone to clinging to one another.
There are DIY methods out there as well. Throwing a ball made of aluminum foil can have the same effect as a dryer sheet due to its positive charge, and you’ll get the same results by applying safety pins to a few garments of clothing. But why bother, when there are effective products that do all of the hard work for you?
Grab Green Dryer Sheets: Finally Say Goodbye to Annoying Static Cling!

Our Wet Dryer Sheets both soften your fabrics and prevent static cling, both through a positive charge and through the addition of moisture to your dryer, which prevents an environment that is conducive to cling. Best of all, because they’re wet, you can use them twice, making them a cost-effective option as well. Compostable and sustainable, they are made with natural materials and clean ingredients, while still being fragrance-free. No wonder these handy sheets also make perfect dusting cloths after their life in the dryer.
