Instead of disposable dryer sheets or liquid fabric softener, throw three or more wool dryer balls in with your laundry. If you prefer to have the fragrance provided by your old dryer sheets, add a few drops of essential oil to the dryer balls and allow it to dry before tossing in with your laundry. The balls work by keeping fabric from clumping in the dryer which helps air circulate more efficiently. They also hold onto heat which accelerates the drying process. This results in less time needed for drying, less static, and softer clothes. The additional bonus is helping you reduce trash, cut down chemical use, cut out plastic bottles, and save energy!
