It smells like my dryer

My house has been using the dryer all day since it is the weekend. Everyone had to do their load of laundry. Instead of smoke, it smelled like laundry detergent each day when people were drying their clothing. Not sure what that does when it mixes in with smoke. It's a weird battle out there.

It's the scented detergent and dryer sheets that choke everyone out. Yay to unscented everything. Clear the air space.

Fabric softener sheet ruin my life. I can't breathe when my neighbours use them. Asked them very politely to switch to dryer balls and they retaliated by using even more fabric softener. So mature.

VOC+pollution

Dryer sheets and scented laundry products emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

VOCs can cause people to experience the following symptoms: eye and respiratory tract irritation, headaches, dizziness, visual disorders and memory impairment

VOCs from highly scented laundry products (or any cleaning product) added to the particulates in the air from the forest fires are bad news for health. We can't control fires but we can choose to use unscented cleaning and laundry products.
