I can't help but feel like my life is a mini struggle between finding convenience and responsibility. I do my best on a regular basis to make sure that as a family we incorporate safe and sustainable practices, but often at times I know that itís only reasonable that I make some compromises to get through the day without any break downs (on Avi's part or mine ;) ). Let me start by saying that laundry is not my forte. As a matter of fact, I kinda dread doing it. That said, being a mom (soon to be of 2), it's entirely unavoidable on a very regular basis! Iím not sure if itís the waiting around, or all the steps in the process, but it just drives me crazy. Anything I can do to make it a little easier, quicker, more efficient, is wholly worth it! I recently had the opportunity to try out the Bounce Dryer Bar and figured while itís not an entirely ìgreenî product, it will certainly save me time, money, and a good amount of paper I use in dryer sheets (we do a lot of laundry in this house). I have to say that itís been a breeze to use. Itís super nice not to have to think about something (even as minor as throwing in a dryer sheetÖ as Iíve been known to forget from time to time and plague our home with wildly annoying static). Between chasing Avital and this pregnancy, itís been hard enough keeping up with daily chores, let along making sure the house is stocked with all the necessary cleaning materials, paper products, etc. One less thing on my weekly shopping list is a major plus! I chose the unscented version since Avi and Richie are so sensitive, and itís been working great. Iíd totally buy another (though I won't have to for another 3 months apparently, which is another serious added benefit). Our clothing is just as fresh and soft as it was with the dryer sheets I was using, so Iím a happy camper.
