Wool Dryer Balls

Wool Dryer Balls

Ditch the toxic dryer sheets!  Switch dryer sheets for something natural and chemical free. Wool dryer balls dry and soften your clothes faster, without using chemically loaded dryer sheets or fabric softener.

Fabric softeners and dryer sheets contain petroleum-based toxins and unnatural fragrances. The toxic ingredients in these products may cause harm to the skin, and their synthetic fragrances could be a trigger for allergic reactions. Not to mention, the ingredients found in chemical softeners and dryer sheets are not environmentally friendly and can be quite harmful.

Normally, fabric sticks together in the dryer which can slow down the drying process.  When you add dryer balls to your load, the balls will lift and separate your clothing, discouraging bunching and clinging.  They also help to move heat evenly throughout your clothes which can reduce drying time.

Another benefit of wool dryer balls is that you can infuse them with your essential oils!  Just place 5-7 drops of your favorite essential oil on each ball to gently infuse your laundry with a fresh scent free of synthetic perfumes.

Wool dryer balls

My favorite oils to use with dryer balls are Purification, Citrus Fresh, Lemon and Lavender.  Here are some things to keep in mind:

  1. Most dryer ball sets come in packages of 3 or 4.  I have found best results using 6-8 balls.  Young Living sells dryer balls but you can buy them anywhere.  I got mine from Amazon.
  2. Balls need to be replaced approximately every 1,000 loads.
  3. For best results, put essential oils on the wool dryer balls when there is about 10-20 minutes left in the cycle.  However, I’m way too impatient and absent minded to do that.  So I put them in the dryer at the very beginning and am very happy with the results.
  4. Some people like to also put a safety pin in each dryer ball to help prevent static cling.  I’ve never had to do that and haven’t had a problem with static.  But in case you do, try the safety pin trick.

10 uses for Purification® Essential Oil

 

PURIFICATION®

topical aromatic

Young Living’s Purification® blend is a clean and wonderful smelling essential oil that contains

  • Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus)
  • lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus)
  • rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
  • Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)
  • lavandin (Lavandula x hybrida) and
  • myrtle (Myrtus communis).

I love love love to diffuse this because not only does it rid the room of odor, it just smells wonderful without being too heavy and flowery.

room freshener

I live in an apartment and smells easily take on a life of their own.  Every time I cook the smells linger for days.  But when I diffuse Purification®, within anmold-smell hour the room smells fresh and clean and you’d never know I spent the day slaving over a hot stove.   I do laundry on the weekends and this past weekend I opened up the washer to do a fresh load and found a very NOT fresh wet load sitting in the washer – where it had been since LAST weekend.  Yuck!  The clothes reeked of mold and mildew and I was dreading washing them over and over again to get rid of the smell.   But then I remembered I had oils!  I grabbed purification® and dropped a few drops in the wash and when the load was done I didn’t smell anything funky.  But I still ran it through one more time with more purification® just to sure.  blech!   Oh how I love these oils 🙂
