Do I need to use fabric softener or dryer sheets when using the dryer balls?
No, absolutely not. Wool dryer balls naturally soften your fabrics by gently tumbling with them in the dryer, giving you softer and fluffier laundry without the use of chemicals. Plus, they also help reduce drying time by 20% to 40%, saving time, money, and energy!
How do they work?
Wool dryer balls soak up moisture in your dryer by absorbing up to 30% of their weight in water. Plus, their movement in the dryer helps separate your clothes and sheets allowing air and heat to circulate and dry them faster. As your laundry dries, the dryer balls fluff and evenly redistribute humidity in the dryer eliminating wrinkles, reducing static cling, and providing a softer feel to your fabrics. The result is a quicker drying time and softer and more manageable laundry.
How many balls should I use?
You can use 4 for small loads and 6 for full loads, but we suggest using 6+ all the time, because it will shorten your drying time even more. In general, the more the better.
How long do they last?
They will last for years! Our wool dryer balls are reusable for 1000+ loads per each ball. Most people will use them for 2 to 5 years depending on how much laundry they do. If your dryer balls appear to no longer be as effective, just stick them in a sunny place for several hours to allow them to dry all the way through. Or throw them into the dryer by themselves for an hour.
How do I use them?
Super easy! Toss them in with a dryer load, and let them go. You can also stop the dryer 5-10 minutes before the end of its normal cycle, but do not over dry, as over drying will produce static cling.
How should I store my wool dryer balls?
You can store them in a well ventilated area, in their storage bag, but many people prefer to just leave the balls in the dryer and use the bag for other purposes.
Are they unscented?
Yes, they are completely scent-free and chemical-free, which makes our wool dryer balls ideal for hypersensitive skin. Our wool dryer balls are made of 100% New Zealand wool, which will naturally leave your clothes smelling clean.
Can I add fragrance to the wool dryer balls?
NO! Many dryer ball or essential oil companies recommend using fragrance in the dryer, but these recommendations are not based on the safest EO practices. Some EOs have low flash points, meaning they can catch on fire easily. For this reason, we never recommend using EOs in the dryer.
Can I use wool dryer balls with my baby’s laundry, cloth diapers, and menstrual pads?
Yes! Absolutely. Our wool dryer balls are baby-safe and ideal for sensitive skin. They are made of 100% organic wool to the core and do not contain any chemicals or additives. This protects sensitive skin and prevents the deterioration of waterproof layers in baby diapers or menstrual pads, which can otherwise be damaged by the chemicals found in dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners.
How big are they?
Our wool dryer balls are the ideal size for softening your laundry: about 3 inches in diameter and 9.4 inches in circumference. They are roughly the size of a baseball, though sizes will vary.
