dryer balls

dryer balls

I never really believed in dryer balls…until I tried them. As a natural fabric softener these dryer balls reduce wrinkles, reduce drying time and reduce static. And if you add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a dryer ball, you will have fabulously scented towels and sheets (and laundry room). Handmade from cvm wool, angora wool and mohair (these are kind of designer balls), they are all natural, eco-friendly and affordable. In natural colors of white, gray, brown and charcoal. Or hand dyed in soft pastel colors. add 3-4 balls to your dryer and enjoy! for sale on Etsy
