What's the scoop on Wool Dryer Balls?

When using cloth diapers, you have to give up using things like fabric softener and dryer sheets. You may find yourself missing the softness of our clothes. Or maybe you want to reduce the amount of time it takes to dry a load of clothes in your dryer. By reducing the dry time, you could save your family money on your electricity bill. So what do you do when you need softer laundry or more efficient dry time? Try wool dryer balls!

Wool dryer balls are balls of felted wool. They are about the size of a tennis ball.  They circulate in the dryer with your laundry. The wool absorbs the moisture from your laundry, reducing dry time by 10-25%. The more dryer balls you use, the better! The dryer balls help separate laundry while tumbling around in your dryer, allowing the air to circulate. Your clothes will dry faster and you won't need to run your dryer for as long.

LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls are made by hand using 100% local wool from Maine. They help reduce static, naturally soften your clothes, and will reduce your dry time! Start with three balls in your laundry and add more for even more efficiency!
