The Benefits of Using Wool Dryer Balls

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to decrease static cling on your clothes while you are drying them, and you want to make your clothes dry quicker with fewer wrinkles in the end, using wool dryer balls will instantly help. They are simple to use and reasonably priced to make at home if you want to create a few of your own.

A Softer Side

Using fabric softeners in your wash cycle is a great way to make your clothes feel soft, and they come out smelling fresh and clean. This can be costly, especially if you are washing several loads a week for your large family. A wool ball used in your dryer can create the same softness for pennies, and they can be used over and over again. They also will ensure that your clothes come out wrinkle-free, so you don’t have to mess with your iron. The wool balls will also last for several years, so that is a lot of months that you do not have to spend a dime on purchasing dryer sheets or softening supplies.

A Crafty Eye

When you are ready to try out the wool balls, purchase them from your local store, or you can make them at home for a low cost. All you need is some wool, panty hose, and a pair of sharp scissors. Bunch up your wool into the size ball that you prefer and twist it up until it is tight and secure. Cover the ball with a pair of panty hose that you have cut from a pair that you are not wearing with your heels anymore. Knot the ends and make sure they are secure and snug. If you want your clothes to smell fresh or fruity, you can add a few drops of essential oil to the wool, and your clothes will always come out smelling like peppermint or grapefruit. In the end, you will save a ton of money, and you will always have wrinkle-free soft socks and laundry that evokes a brilliant scent.

A Handy Accessory

Wool dryer balls are a wonderful way to add freshness to your clothing without breaking the bank. Your items will also come out looking smooth and beautiful as you remove them from your dryer.
