Benefits of Replacing Dryer Sheets with Wool Dryer Balls

For years, it seemed the only way to make your laundry smell fresh and have fewer wrinkles was to use disposable dryer sheets. These sheets often contain fabric softeners and chemicals to minimize static cling and add a fresh scent to clean clothing and linens. Luckily, you can kick the dryer sheet habit for good and switch to eco-friendly wool dryer balls. If you’ve noticed these little balls of beauty on our website but weren’t sure what they do or how they work, here’s how wool dryer balls do what they do and why your laundry is eager for you to use them.

What Are Wool Dryer Balls?

Wool dryer balls are an environmentally friendly alternative to fabric sheets. Made of 100% wool, these spheres help lessem wrinkles, soften fabrics and assist in dry time without using harsh chemicals or artificial fragrances. To enjoy a clean scent on clothing or linens, add a few sprays of the included essential oil aroma blend to your wool dryer balls before tossing them in the machine. Our Zum Wool Dryer Balls come in sets containing three balls and an essential oil aroma blend spray; just a few spritzes are all it takes to give your laundry a light fragrance.

Why Use Wool Dryer Balls

A better question is why not use wool dryer balls? Seriously, these things are little woolen miracle workers. They help soften your clothes, say “see ya” to static and make wrinkles run for the hills. Wool dryer balls are pros at fluffing your clothing while tumbling through the drying cycles, and they can even help the amount of time it takes to dry a load. Not sure how many dryer balls per load? Use two or three balls, depending on the size of your laundry load, but don’t overload the dryer or they won’t have room to tumble and work their magic. Zum Wool Dryer Balls enhance your laundry routine with essential oils to give everything the right amount of ahhh-mazing scent.

How Can You Make Wool Dryer Balls Last?

Wool dryer balls are low maintenance. You can recharge your wool dryer balls by adding a few spritzes of your favorite Zum essential oil spray for dryer balls, and they are revived and ready to take another tumble. We love them because they are reusable and last for many loads before you need to replace them. It’s no mystery why wool dryer balls are more eco-friendly than fabric sheets.
