Wrinkle defense = CHEMICALS as in FORMALDEHYDE!!

[ Edited ]

Sorry, passing !! The main chemical is:

 

Most wrinkle-free or wrinkle resistant sheets are “finished” with a chemical process to keep them from wrinkling. That chemical process generally includes the use of formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is predominantly used as an embalming fluid — as a way to preserve something. I have a distinct memory of a formaldehyde smell from high school biology when we used it to preserve frogs. Formaldehyde is also used to make clothing wrinkle-free and stain resistant by either soaking the fabric in formaldehyde or exposing the fabric to formaldehyde gases — then baking the fabric at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. This process prevents the fibers in the fabric from wrinkling after being washed.

   Be patient.  Someone will come along who'll look up the ingredients for us to review, try to mindread just which chemicals OP is objecting to, and why.

@Hedge.  I don't get too concerned as the OP complains about a lot.
