So, for a few months, I tried the "nothing" approach. Just the dryer. Well, that was miserable. I'm not a fan of static cling...in fact, it makes me a little furious. Sooo...after much ado, I found woolen dryer balls. (thank you, Google) Of course, the minute I discovered them, they just came out of the wood works and everyone was talking about them...I mean...where had I been?
I have to tell you, I was pretty skeptical, because the claims on these things were kind of unreal...
- they cut your drying time by 25%
- they last for up to 10 years
- they reduce static cling
- you can add essential oils if you want scent
- no toxins...at all
I doubted it, but I bought some anyway.
Well...I'll gladly eat my hat, because these things work, and I can now do the happy pants dance! So, that's it...$16 for a set of 4, that I just leave in my dryer...and voila!! They do everything they say they will...no static, no toxins, and I'll be doggoned if they don't cut my drying time significantly.
Is there anything negative about them?...well, if you just need something, Eeyore...I occasionally have to unroll them from the end of my sheets. So, there...if you're bound and determined to have a catch, there it is.
Thank you handmade, people driven, community oriented business!
I got mine here. Happy ball shopping:)
