Wool Dryer Balls

No need to purchase those dryer sheets and fabric softener anymore!
Instead, use a reusable alternative that is WAY more fun and better for your clothes AND the Earth.
Plus, did you know that fabric softener and dryer sheets are extremely toxic and harmful to your health?

Wool Dryer Balls!

These worked fabulously and they will not only save you money from not having to buy conventional dryer sheets and fabric softener, but they will also noticeably decrease your drying time!
Double the Points for this ecofrugal item!
You will save money on your energy bill after tossing these wool dryer balls into your dryer as well as precious time drying laundry!

Wool dryer balls also are gentle on your clothes unlike the plastic dryer balls you'll find in the big box stores.
They reduce static and soften your clothes!
They are quiet, so no worry about the noise of balls bouncing around your dryer.

When these beauties aren't in your dryer, fun can be had by all playing with these.
Charlie loves them so much, I really should just buy him some to play with instead of him rushing to the dryer to help unload, so he can find one to sneak off.

You don't need many of these, however, the more you use, the quicker your clothes will dry.
Thus, you'll save more money on energy costs in the long run.
The general recommendation is to start with 4 and many people end up using anywhere from 8-12.

So, let's recap...
Wool Dryer Balls
*save you time & money
*better for your clothes
*better for the Earth
*reduce static and softens clothes, towels, cloth diapers, etc
*quiet, attractive, customizable
*multi-purpose
*100% natural, sustainable reusable product

  3. I love the rubbits(exciting colors) and all of the beeswax crayons(I have 21 month old twins so things are still going in their mouths). I am very anxious to try these balls and have been doing some research on them. It's a fantastic idea and I'm all about teaching my babies to grow up in a "green" world!!

  8. I'm so glad for the third option as well.
    I've been thinking about the silly plastic bags for produce lately and HATE using them. I LOVE the drawstring re-usable produce bags on their website! Why didn't I think of that. I just may have to purchase some after your giveaway.

  9. aren't those produce bags awesome? They have been on my "to purchase" list for awhile and are slowly making their way to the top. I despise the plastic produce bags and usually don't use them. The girl at Kroger actually made a mean comment to me last week b/c I didn't use any except for the freshly showered lettuce b/c it was so wet about how I was making her job difficult. Uh, hello? I even take the time to group all the like items together when I unload, so their job IS easier.

  10. OH those Wool Dryer Balls look so fab!
    And they seem to do a great job too!
    Following you and Mountain Top Tribe.
    Couldn't choose my favourite from the website. Just too much to choose! Although the Scarf wings looked fabby!!
    Would be happy to pay postage to UK.
    Please let it be me, please let it be me :0)
