I just wanted to make sure everyone knew that ALL dryer balls are made from PVC plastic. Pretty yucky when you consider they heat up in your dryer and bounce all over your clothing that you then wear, and snuggle your babies up next to...
Step one: use less detergent. If you use the amount the manufacturer recommends, your clothing will have detergent residue. It's this residue that then provides the market for fabric softener.
Step two: don't overload the washer and make sure the detergent all rinses out. An extra rinse helps this, but either vinegar or baking soda can help.
Step three: don't overdry, but if you do--don't dry synthetics with natural fibers. That wrinkle-saver permpress feature on the dryer? It just builds up the static.
