Dryer balls are a very economical and environmentally friendly way to do laundry. If you want to keep your laundry soft and fluffy while avoiding the use of chemicals, then wool dryer balls may be on your radar. These compact spheres made from wool are designed to be a natural, reusable alternative to traditional fabric softener sheets or plastic dryer balls. An added bonus is that our wool balls are made from 100% organic New Zealand wool and they are unscented so you can add your favorite essential oils for a fresh, clean scent.
How to use the drying balls
When using dryer balls, it's important to remember how they work. Because they work by separating clothing, clothes, towels and bedding, dryer balls need room to work! In other words, you can't fill your dryer with a load of clean, wet clothes and expect the dryer balls to work properly; dryer balls are always best for small to medium loads.
Also, if you just bought a package of various dryer balls, you may be wondering how many dryer balls you need per load. The usual number is 3 large balls per load. If you have small balls, 4 may be sufficient.
The instructions for using the dryer balls are easy to understand: grab them, toss them into the dryer, and leave them in your laundry. Then, remove the dried laundry and leave the balls for the next load.
If you like your balls to have a great scent, add a few drops of essential oil to them. Add 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil to each wool dryer ball. Be sure to let the essential oils dry on the balls before adding them to the dryer. Because the essential oils are natural, they will not damage your wool drying balls or your clothes, and they will smell great.

Reduces static cling
While our wool dryer balls help reduce static cling, you may still notice some static on your clothes because they are chemical free. There are a few things that can cause static cling, such as over-drying clothes and synthetic materials. Here are some tips to eliminate static cling from dryer balls
1. Separate the synthetic material from the rest of the garment
2. Spray the dryer balls with water before putting them in the dryer
3. Attach a small safety pin to a ball to disperse static electricity
What to do with used wool dryer balls
The uses are endless. Once you've decided to scrap your used wool dryer balls, you can throw them in the compost pile. Or, you can keep them. Here are some ideas.
Refresh the air: Add oil to the dryer balls and place them in a corner.
Sweeten your sheets: Add oil to the dryer balls and tuck them in the closet.
Play indoor catch.
Practice juggling.
Cover it with fabric and use it as a doll's head.
Offer them to your pets - they make great toys! Just make sure that any essential oils you have used before are animal safe.
