Made by hand, these reusable wool balls leave load after load of laundry feeling soft and fresh, replacing the need for dryer sheets and fabric softeners. Their absorbent, softening qualities last and last, so you can keep using them for years to come. Just toss them in the dryer with your clothes like you would a disposable dryer sheet, but without any of the chemicals or waste. We recommend at least three dryer balls for a normal load of laundry. Each dryer ball will last for over 1,000 loads of laundry, and every dryer ball you add will shorten your drying process, saving you energy and time. For a fun bonus, add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to your dryer balls before a load of laundry to give your clothes a signature scent and so that you get to feel like a laundry alchemist!
