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).
