Natural dryer balls can save you money, electricity and time, making them the perfect solution for an eco-friendly family. Instead of using dryer sheets or other chemical laden solutions, these 100% wool dryer balls move through your wet laundry, breaking up the clumps and allowing the hot air to circulate faster. This can lead to drastically reduced drying time and real, measurable savings to your electricity bill. Not only do these dryer balls save you time, they also work as a natural fabric softener while moving through the clothes, perfect for those with allergies, eczema or sensitive skin who can’t tolerate the harsh chemicals in commercial products. If you miss the scent from the dryer sheets or fabric softener you can add essentials oils to the dryer balls to give your laundry a natural fragrance of your choice.
Three balls are recommended for a small load of wash, and four for a large load.
Once your laundry is completely dry, add one drop of an essential oil to one dryer ball and turn your dryer to “fluff – no heat”. Voila! Scented laundry without the chemicals.
