So, when we started cloth diapering last summer I worried how my fabric softener addiction would affect my diapers. I continued to use it on all of our other laundry knowing that there could be build up left on the walls of the washing machine. I'd heard to wool dryer balls, but never committed to purchasing any. Then I entered a giveaway and won a set of four Wooly Rounds. I was hooked! I now have seven Wooly Rounds wool dryer balls that I keep in the dryer. I am in love!
Wool dryer balls are balls of felted wool. They are about the size of tennis balls and come in many different colors. The balls separate your clothes during drying which can reduce the dry time by 10-25%. Wooly Rounds are made of 100% local, lanolized wool in Maine. The wool fibers absorb static, toxins, and odors so your clothes are fresh and static free. They last a very long time, many years so you won't be replacing them often.
Any amount of wool dryer balls in your dryer will help, but 6-8 is optimal to reduce your drying time. You can buy a set from Wooly Rounds for $22.50 for a 3 pack or $36.25 for a 5 pack. Wooly Rounds is graciously sponsoring a giveaway for 3 Wooly Rounds to get you started! Enter below to win! ***CLOSED***
All opinions in this post are completely my own. Wooly Rounds sent me a set of wool dryer balls for reviewing purposes.
