Green Laundry: Wooly Rounds Reduce Dryer Time by 10-25%
Although I should always air dry my clothing, I don't. It is about convenience and softness. Fortunately, there are ways to save energy and minimize this green sin of mine.
Wooly Rounds are felted wool balls. The idea is really quite simple and brilliant:
A wool dryer ball is a felted ball of wool that you use in your clothes dryer to help separate your clothes. Having several in your dryer creates a constant motion that allows for more air to circulate around your wet laundry so your clothes will dry faster. The more dryer balls you use, the less time it takes to dry a load and you can reduce your dry time by 10 -25%.
Wool is used because of its incredible properties including the ability to:
- help reduce static - wool fibers can absorb static cling
- naturally soften clothes due to the friction of the balls against the fabric
- makes clothes fresher and smell cleaner - since wool has the ability to absorb toxins and odors
I think Wooly Rounds are great! Plus, they are handmade in Maine.
I've never been a fan of dryer sheets. Can't stand the smell.
Wooly Rounds are great because they reduce drying time thus allowing me to continue to use my dryer with less guilt.
Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review would be positive or negative.
