Following is a recipe for 100% wool Dryer Balls from one of my friend/downline ladies. She is rockin awesome and agreed to share it with you all. She knows about natural things, and about laundry and about saving $$ with having lots of littles.
Ursula says, “It’s super easy and worth their weight in gold. Takes the place of fabric softener. The wool acts as a static repellant. Very natural. Saves on the electric bill! They knock the clothes around in the dryer aerating the clothes. Creating more room for the air to circulate. Drying the clothes faster.
- Find 100% wool, which isn’t easy.
- Make yarn balls. Slightly larger than mine would work better, I think.
- I hide the tail of the yard by using a needle and thread it though the middle so it doesn’t come undone.
- I boil the balls in a large pot. Just to a boil. (The boiling is to felt the wool. So it doesn’t come apart.)
- Let them sit until cooled.
- Then dry them with clothes.
My took a week before they dried out. These balls are super absorbent so it takes a while for them to dry out.
I add a drop of Young Living lavender oil to one ball. Toss all the balls with the laundry into the dryer. It makes the laundry smell good and cuts the drying time in half.”
