Drying Clothes in a new way

These are 3 of the 6 dryer balls we purchased at the Vermont Country Store last month.  I wanted to find a way to save on Dryer Sheets AND save on electricity when using the dryer.  I do hang all of my work clothes/under things to dry, but DH's work clothes and towels I run through the dryer. 

As per their website:

Stop throwing money away on those costly fabric softeners and dryer sheets loaded with harsh chemicals, and start treating yourself and the environment right with these all-natural dryer balls. Handcrafted from pure New Zealand wool, they not only soften your laundry, reduce static, and help eliminate wrinkles, but also save you time and energy by cutting your drying time by 25%. Each dryer ball lasts up to a whopping 1000 loads and is hypoallergenic.
  • Handcrafted from pure New Zealand wool
  • Approx. 3" dia.
  • 100% chemical free
  • Eliminates the need for expensive fabric softeners and dryer sheets
  • Softens your clothes, reduces static, and helps prevent wrinkles
  • Reduces drying time by 25%
  • Lasts up to 1,000 loads; 6 hypoallergenic dryer balls per box.  We paid $24.95
Well, so far so good.  I am using the lowest heat setting, and I am saving about 15-20 minutes in dryer time as well.  I think that this was a good purchase. 


  1. Love the VT Country Store! Next time we are there I will have to check these out!

  2. Hmmmm....can't wait to hear more details on how you like them over the next couple months - how big are they?

  3. Little bit larger than a tennis ball. The only negative so far is they SOUND like tennis balls bouncing around inside.

  4. When these wear out you can make your own too. Don't know how they would stack up pricewise over buying again tho. ;-)


I look forward to your comments and contributions
