Hi there, Happy Monday!
So you’ve heard me talk about toxins in our homes, right? Did you know dryer sheets don’t rate very well for various toxins? According to EWG’s website, the dryer sheets were rated C-F even the ones that seem to be better.
Awhile back I made the switch to wool dryer balls. Today I’ll share an easy DIY so you can make your own!
So why would you use dryer balls? I’ll share a few of the benefits.
Cuts down on drying time. You save time & money.
Eliminates static. Perfect for the colder months where static is a problem.
Softens clothes. While bouncing around they soften clothes and the clothes have fewer wrinkles.
Last a long time. You can use them over and over and you save money. No more dryer sheets!
The best part is that they are Toxin-free! Yep, no chemicals on your clothes sitting on your skin all day.
If you don’t want to make your own you can find them on Amazon here.
Also, if you miss those fresh scents just use a few drops of your favorite essential oil like Citrus Fresh (comes in the beautiful new starter kit!!) on the dryer balls for scented laundry naturally!
Wool yarn or roving. I used wool yarn from Michael’s.
Start by wrapping around your fingers and keep wrapping as you turn until you have what is about the size of a tennis ball.
Put the wrapped yarn ball into a sock and wash on hot water setting and dry on the highest setting.
Depending on the size load of laundry I’ll use anywhere from 3-6 wool balls.
Please let me know how you like using them and what other green tips for laundry you have you can share!
Want to make your own laundry soap? I shared my recipe here.

We can afford what we think is important and what we value.
Do you value your health, your wellness, your “having a better day,” and your emotional well-being?
