Wool dryer balls: what they are and how they works

What are dryer balls really good for?

How do dryer balls save me time?

In this way, you will not only save time in drying but you can also avoid ironing the garments once they are dry! In addition, they also give softness to the garments, so much so that you could also avoid using fabric softener during the washing phase. Faster drying means savings in electricity bills, using less fabric softener means savings for the environment.

What types of dryer balls are there?

There are various types of dryer balls, each with different characteristics and properties. The easiest to find, but also the cheapest are those in aluminium because they can be perfectly made at home. Just wrap some aluminium foil giving it a spherical shape, up to 8-10 cm in diameter. They untangle well among the fabrics but do not retain moisture and their life is short: after about ten uses they will begin to flake. The plastic balls instead have the same function but are harder and longer-lasting. However, considering the environmental issue, it would be better to avoid using plastic. Finally, the wool balls, which are the best. They untangle well, last over time, and absorb moisture. It is also possible to add a few drops of essential oils to increase the scent of your laundry.
