Why Use Wool Dryer Balls?
* Decrease your laundry drying time and save money on electricity bills.
* No chemicals in wool dryer balls!
* Commercial dryer sheets can be expensive and are thrown away after each use. Reuse your wool dryer balls to save money and replace your disposable dryer sheets. Wool dryer balls last for years!
* Perfect for keeping your cloth diapers soft and chemical-free. Great for sensitive skin.
* Wool dryer balls won't affect the absorbency of your towels, kitchen cloths, or cloth diapers – but commercial fabric softeners will.
* 100 percent wool dryer balls reduce static and increase the fluffiness of your clothes as the dryer load tumbles.
* Soften your clothes naturally and reduce your impact on the environment by using wool which is a renewable resource.
How Do Wool Dryer Balls Work?
* Wool dryer balls absorb moisture and provide better air circulation by rotating and separating linens and clothes. As the balls bounce around they circulate, fluff and soften your clothes while reducing wrinkles.
* As they tumble in your dryer, the dryer balls work to dry your clothes so you can save money and run your dryer for less time.
How Do I Make My Wool Dryer Balls?
I use natural and organic 100% wool yarn to make my different types of dryer balls. The weight of wool yarn I use varies from fine to medium, which creates a denser dryer ball compared to a dryer ball made with wool roving yarn. Therefore, the dryer balls I create are better for drying your laundry because they wick the moisture away from the clothes better. Roving wool also pills regularly.
I triple felt the dryer balls so they will not unravel. I use unscented homemade laundry detergent to felt the dryer balls so each ball starts off as unscented. Learn how to make your own wool dryer balls, click here.
How to Use Wool Dryer Balls:
* Toss them in the dryer with your washed laundry, and let the dryer balls go to work!
* I recommend at least 4 of my dryer balls for a normal size load of laundry, but the more the better and the faster your laundry will dry.
* Store your dryer balls in the dryer when not in use or display them in a pretty basket in your laundry room.
* If you choose a scented option, I scent the dryer balls with essential oil right before shipping so they ship "wet". Please take them out of bag and allow the dryer balls to dry overnight before their first use so the essential oils can set. The scent lasts about a week, depending on use. Later, you can re-scent with a few drops of your favorite essential oil if desired. Check out my selection of essential oils, HERE.

Lavender buds are a safe and natural freshener. Lavender is also a natural insect and moth repellent. This herb has been used throughout time to relax, comfort and sooth. The aroma is stress relieving and calming without being overpowering.
Try making your own lavender sachets. Lavender sachets have many uses and can be used in many areas throughout your home. Place the lavender sachets in your dresser drawers, closets, and clothes storage containers to keep your clothes and linens smelling fresh. Since, lavender is a natural insect and moth repellent they are perfect closet sachets. Use lavender sachets in children's clothes storage totes which store their seasonal or outgrown clothes. When you open the plastic totes you will smell lavender, instead of the plastic smell. Lavender sachets are perfect for placing under your pillow for a restful night's sleep.
Lavender can be used in many ways in your wedding. Use it as a wedding toss or sprinkle it in the middle of your table to accent your centerpieces. Small bags filled with lavender buds make great wedding favors. Lavender makes a great wedding toss as it is not harmful to birds. Place the dried lavender buds in a bowl and using paper cones or handfuls they can be tossed over the newly married couple after the ceremony. Lavender buds can also take the place of flower petals in the flower girl's basket. Simply pour the lavender buds into a flower girl basket before she walks down the aisle. Don't worry about the clean up, lavender is easily vacuumed up and also will give off a lovely scent as you vacuum it up.
Store your unused lavender buds in an airtight container until use to retain their freshness. I recommend storing your lavender in glass mason jars. Keep lavender out of sunlight and away from heat, as this also helps retain the scent. The lavender scent usually lasts a few years. To refresh the lavender sachets, give them a light squeeze or shake to redistribute their natural oil.
