Also, they eliminate the need to use dryer sheets completely (which not only can contain chemicals that can irritate sensitive skin, but also can have a negative effect on your dryer!) Plus, dryer sheets are EXPENSIVE!
You can buy dryer balls at many stores (hello, Target) or online. (right around $10)
You can find them in both plastic or wool… but the wool balls are preferable because they’re natural. AND… you also can add a few drops of essential oils to them to help make your clothes smell even better!
Just make sure the balls are made from 100% wool, as wool contains compounds that make it naturally flame- and mold-resistant.
Try adding a couple drops of organic essential oils to help make your towels and sheets smell great. Lavender (calming) and orange (energizing) are great choices! If you’re drying a load of workout clothes... tea tree oil can help keep them smelling fresh! Just add a couple drops to the ball and let it dry before putting in the dryer.
Up for giving this a try!? Snap a pic of your dryer balls this week as evidence! :-) Let me know if you’re up for this challenge in a comment below!
