Doing laundry is not the most fun thing in my life. It can take a long time to do and it just never ends.
Vita’s Wool Dryer Balls
The wool dryer balls work like this. You wash your clothes in the washer. Check. You then toss the clothes in the dryer and put 3-4 dryer balls into your dryer and dry your clothes. The balls move around in the dryer separating your clothes, allowing the hot air to circulate fluffing your laundry, reducing wrinkles and making your laundry soft.
How did they work?
I think they were pretty darn awesome? Would I have bought them had I not been given them? Yes. I have had the plastic ones in the past and didn’t feel like they did much. When I used these, I noticed no static in my clothes. I did notice the wool balls had static after drying but not my clothes (static is caused by over drying). They are made with 100% New Zealand Wool and last for hundreds of loads (piling does happen and that doesn’t affect their usability).
These wool balls help cut your drying time. To be honest, I never time my laundry drying time. I have a front loading dryer and the dryer changes it mind on the time. The dryer was finishing drying a load about the same time as the washer was done. Before using them, I would have to wait for the dryer to finish. This is saving me time if getting both washing and drying to complete in sync.
You can put essential oils on your wool balls if you like to have fragrance in your laundry. I usually do lavender on the bed sheets to have a sounder sleep, or maybe cedarwood to get the kids to go to sleep faster! Just use 1-2 drops per ball.
Have you used them before? What do you think of them?
The come in a 4 pack and are huge, about the size of my hands clasped together.
