CHICAGO – Most people have been using them for years as a way to help their clothes feel fresh at the end of a wash.

But some laundry scientists are cautioning people to avoid this step as they complete the drying process.

Not using dryer sheets, which is recommended by some, was one of the topics that were discussed on Monday’s “6@6” on WGN Mornings News as the hosts gave their thoughts on this change.

Along with that, they also discussed how a chicken recipe could influence relationship status, comedians who are finding a side hustle in babysitting, and the “Hallmark Hunk.”

You can watch their discussion on all these topics in the video above.
