Willow Store Natural Laundry Care Wool Dryer Balls Assorted Colors -- 3 Balls
Great alternative to dryer sheets
I've been trying to reduce the amount of waste I produce on a daily basis as well as limit the amount of chemicals I'm exposed to regularly. Dryer sheets are wasteful and full of chemicals, so I wanted to try an alternative. These wool balls are great. They significantly reduce drying time (saving on electricity as a bonus. Yay!), produce absolutely no waste, and are chemical free. They also remove most wrinkles from my clothes and leave them feeling fairly soft.

not quite as expected
I'd discovered using wool dryer balls when visiting a friend over the summer. Hers were a bit smaller and appeared to be strictly felted wool. Drying time was definitely shorter in her house and the clothes seemed to have fewer wrinkles. As pictured online, I was buying the same thing, but when they arrived, I found that they were more like tennis balls with wool wound around them. The result is that they seem to catch some lint themselves within the fibers. I haven't found any reduction in drying time, and my husband thinks they've prolonged it. The upside is that they do seem to help with fluffing of clothes, so that's good for robes and towels, and they might reduce wrinkling a bit as a result. I'm going to keep shopping for different ones.

Wool Dryer Balls
These balls really do the job! My clothes dry a bit faster, are less wrinkled, and without any static. Love them.

No More Dryer Sheets!
I'm impressed with this alternative to dryer sheets. I still notice a wee bit of static cling in some polyester fabrics, but the clothes really dry faster with less wrinkles. The balls also seem to work better the longer I use them. I'm concerned about the chemicals in dryer sheets so this is a great alternative for me.

I wear only natural fiber clothing and they totally work. Very easy, no chemicals, what's not to love!
