3 Benefits of Using Wool Dryer Balls

By Corey Breneisen

Our favorite eco laundry hack at Rae Marie is using old fashion solar power to dry our clothes. But when April showers come calling and our clothesline is out of service, we turn to our Felted Wool Dryer Balls for an eco laundry boost. Here are 3 reasons you should start using wool dryer balls for your laundry routine:

  1. Reusable & Nontoxic: If you haven’t ditched your dryer sheets yet, now is the time! Not only do dryer sheets create a lot of waste, but they damage your dryer, your clothes and your health! (Read more about toxic dryer sheets here.) Our wool dryer balls are made from 100% wool roving and are needle felted by hand. So not only are you getting a practical laundry tool, but a lovely handmade work of art too! While dryer sheets are one and done, wool dryer balls have an infinite life span. When you are ready for a change, simply toss the dryer balls into your compost.

  2. Reduces Drying Time & Static: Using 6 wool dryer balls in a heavy load (think blue jeans) can reduce drying time by 30-40%. That savings goes right into your wallet. Smaller drying time means a smaller electric bill. Wool absorbs up to 30% of its weight in water. Wool also has the magic ability to balance electrons thereby breaking the static cling! Dryer sheets use toxic silicone to break the static barrier. That silicone creates a film on your clothes as well as your dryer. Once on your fabric, it will be absorbed into your skin and can cause a host of allergen & respiratory issues.

  3. Softens Fabric & Eliminates Odours: Wool dryer balls are like a massage for your laundry! They gently pound the fibers in your clothes as they bounce around the dryer keeping the fibers soft, pliable and fluffed. As we stated earlier, wool is absorbent and that goes for odours too!

Are you ready to make the switch? We are happy to help you transition to your Green Lifestyle through our Going Green program. For more natural cleaning tips, be sure to follow our Instagram. We post eco life hacks and natural cleaning tips on Saturdays.
