Whether your goal is to make less trash, save money or use less chemicals, I have a product for you! It actually does all of those things and I can’t believe it took me so long to find out about it!
I started out using regular dryer sheets and didn’t think much about them. But as I was becoming a more conscious consumer I made the switch to fragrance free ones since the one confirmed toxic ingredient is fragrance. Dryer sheets don’t come with an ingredient list and to me that’s a red flag, but I thought it was the best I could do. Fast forward to YEARS later when I found out about wool dryer balls!!!
These balls are made out of wool so you can dab on some of your favorite essential oils and get that fresh out of the dryer smell sans toxic chemicals. You can use them over and over again (1,000+ times) so you are saving money and making ZERO trash! They fluff, reduce wrinkles, combat static and shorten dryer time which saves energy. I mean, these things are truly eco-friendly. They are a no-brainer!
Your skin in your largest organ. Whatever you’re putting on your clothes is most definitely absorbed into your skin which, in turn, seeps into your blood stream. Stop wrapping yourself in toxins, throwing away dryer sheets and your money. Instead, toss these balls in and be truly “clean”!
I ordered a retractable clothesline for Mander and will try to hand wash and hang dry my clothes whenever possible while I’m traveling. But when I decide to treat myself to a laundromat, you better believe I’ll be bringing my balls!
Pro tip: Here in MN, the winter can be VERY dry and we walk around shocking everyone we meet. If you need extra anti-static benefits to get through the winter here’s what you do. Acquire a little cotton bag, like these, fill it with 3-6 tablespoons of Himalayan salt and tie it off. Toss it in the dryer with the balls and let it do it’s magic. You can also use this salt bag over and over again!
