Why is my dog OBSESSED with dryer sheets?

I recently got a chihuahua and she is OBSESSED with dryer sheets. She will root through laundry to get them and then run off as if she has an incredible treat, hiding from us so we don't take the sheet back.
We thought at first that it was the smell of the clothes on the sheet, but we recently learned she goes ape-shit for unused ones as well.
We use Downy dryer sheets if that makes a difference.
Also, are these in any way harmful for a dog? We get them from her as fast as we can, but don't want her poisoned.
