Wool dryer balls are a great alternative to fabric softeners and sheets. They shorten drying time and you can customize your scent with essential oils or dryer ball mists. Use 3 in a standard load and up to 6 in a big load of towels or sheets.

Why I love this Product
I stopped using dryer sheets over a decade ago once I learned about their harmful affects both on me and the environment. The VOCs found in dryer vents after use are classified as Hazardous Air Pollutants by the EPA. And, those sheets, once used, don’t really disappear (they contain a form of polyester).
So you now know what they don’t do, but what are the benefits? Faster drying times, won’t impact the absorbancy of your towels, and it’s a simple way to soften fabrics. I only recently learned that fabric softeners, while feel great on towels, can actually make your towels less absorbent!
And as for the lovely scent of fabric softener or dryer sheets, essential oils can help. My Dryer Ball Mist is a great alternative to scents from dryer sheets and can help in reducing additional static.
