Felted Dryer Balls Changed Our Lives
A few years ago my husband seemed to be having allergic skin reactions to certain products. After some research, we decided to get rid of products that had certain harmful ingredients in them. This meant finding new shampoo, conditioner, body wash, laundry detergent, dryer sheets etc. We soon found that the allergic reaction he was experiencing went away, but if I started using dryer sheets again (which I did, in winter when static is unavoidable), the allergic reaction would return. That is when I was introduced to Felted Wool Dryer Balls and we haven't looked back since.
Felted wool dryer balls are all natural, cut energy costs, reduce static, soften clothes, and are re-useable and long lasting. They replace chemical filled dryer sheets and reduce an average of 25% of drying time of a large load and 30-45% of a small load of laundry. The balls help separate clothing, allowing clothes to dry faster. Since wool absorbs moisture, the dryer balls speed up the drying process.
Some people like their laundry to be scented so they don't use dryer balls. There is a solution for this too, just add a few drops of your favourite essential oils on each ball and your laundry will not only feel fresh, but have that added scent you enjoy. The dryer balls we sell come scent free and include three felted dryer balls using all natural wool roving. No dyes are used in our eco-friendly dryer balls. They are so simple to use: throw all three balls into your dryer as you would a dryer sheet. Leave the balls in the dryer, or in a cute little container near your dryer, ready for the next load. What about static? Felted wool dryer balls also absorb static from your clothes as they dry. They do need 'refreshing' every few months. This is simple to do: Refresh your dryer balls every few months by tying each dryer ball tightly into a sock or pantyhose leg (warning: your pantyhose won't be re-useable after this), adding them to a hot load in the washing machine, and then drying in the dryer while still in the sock. Static reduction will then return.
