Sensitive Skin? Wool Wonder Balls just $25 @ Amazon!
Have you seen, or better yet, used these wool dryer balls? I've been looking into them ever since we had a problem with our dryer and were told that traditional dryer sheets are (apparently) really bad for us and today's HE dryers; the chemical coating on them can lead to a number of problems (not the least of which is that it can irritate young and sensitive skin). Then, of course, we had a baby and had to get rid of all that stuff for his loads and ended up with staticky baby socks and sleepers. Enter the wonder balls!
As I said, I've had my eye on various different sets of wool dryer balls but this particular set by Wooly Naturals contains 6 extra large balls handmade with 100% organic wool. (Doesn't get much more natural than that.) They've dropped to just under $25 on Amazon and have a ton of rave reviews.
Wool dryer balls aren't just safer for you and your family's clothes, they reportedly also help save energy (and, therefore, money) by cutting drying time by up to 50%. From the manufacturer:
As your laundry dries, the wool balls gently fluff, lift and evenly distributes humidity in the dryer ensuring laundry balance and efficiency leading to a quicker drying time.
You can even put a few drops of your favourite essential oil on the balls prior to drying to infuse your laundry with a light scent.
To sweeten the deal just a bit more, Wooly Naturals includes a cute little storage bag and a sheep coin purse with your Amazon purchase.
Good for us, the environment and our wallets? I'm sold. And they ship for free from Amazon.ca!
