Felted Wool Dryer Balls

If you know anybody that use felted wool balls in their dryer instead of fabric sheets or plastic balls, will tell you how much it helps with the drying time, static cling and the Environemnt! I have been using my Dryer Balls for over a year now and they still work.  The Dryer Balls are felted with 100% wool.  Here is a little bit of information that I found on the internet about dryer sheets.


Dryer sheets and fabric softeners coat the fibers of your clothing, inhibiting their ability to breath and/or absorb.
Dryer sheets and fabric softeners contain these chemicals:
 Benzyl acetate: Linked to pancreatic cancer • Benzyl Alcohol: Upper respiratory tract irritant • Ethanol: On the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Hazardous Waste list and can cause central nervous system disorders • Alpha-Terpineol: Can cause respiratory problems, including fatal edema, and central nervous system damage • Ethyl Acetate: A narcotic on the EPA's Hazardous Waste list • Camphor: Causes central nervous system disorders • Chloroform: Neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic • Linalool: A narcotic that causes central nervous system disorders • Pentane: A chemical known to be harmful if inhaled

Dryer Sheets take years to break down in the land fill.

Dryer Balls create loft in the dryer allowing the heat to distribute more evenly, hence reducing drying time, hence reducing electrical use, hence reducing carbon foot print AND electric bills!

Dryer Balls @ $12 a package, with a minimum life of 1 year, used several times a week for 50 weeks of a  year cost less then standard dryer sheets and definetly less then the more earth friendly dryer sheets.

Plastic dryer balls are, PLASTIC and can  damaging the sensors inside their dryer.

Wool Dryer Balls are much quieter then the plastic ones.
