Lower Utility Bills
Using wool dryer balls dries your clothing faster which means shorter run times for your dryer. This equates to less heat and electricity used. Or gas if you use a gas dryer. In either case the money you save on your utility bills will add up to a sizable amount by the end of the year.
Pay Less for Wool Dryer Balls
In general, wool dryer balls don’t cost as much as those pleasant smelling chemical-laced dryer sheets. For one thing you’re not paying more for a big name product made by a corporate giant and two, a whole lot less goes into making a wool ball. You get about 1000 loads out of a wool dryer ball so they’ll last a good long while.
If you want to save even more money, you can actually make your own wool dryer balls. It’s easy to do and it only takes a matter of moments. Almost anyone can do it. Simply carve out some time and try it.
Add Your Own Scents
While it might not be as healthy as going completely without scent, you can add essential oils to homemade wool dryer balls. There are tons of scents to choose from. You don’t have to go with traditional scents like lavender or chamomile. However, essential oils are still unhealthy to breathe in just not as unhealthy as their competition.
Reuse Old Balls
There are tons of uses for old wool dryer balls. This helps save money in other ways. You can use them as toys (like for playing catch outside with a friend), you can use them as an air freshener for any room in the house or as an air freshener for a house. The possibilities are really endless.
Rid yourself of illness. Dryer sheets and fabric softener contain harmful substances that can trigger health problems. Things such as diabetes, seizures, and other respiratory issues are only the beginning. Many other chemicals used to create dryer sheets contain other horrible additives that can cause cancer among other things. Nervous system disorders are another thing to watch other for. Beware of irritability, confusion, a loss of coordination, and memory loss.
Rid Yourself of Static Naturally
When you wash your clothes static clings to the fabric of certain types. Dryer sheets or fabric softener always release chemicals when heated to combat this and keep your clothes from sticking. Wool dryer balls do this without exposing you and your loved ones to horrible health problems. If those aren’t enough reasons to make the switch you might want to do further research. The pros far outweigh the cons. Buy yourself some wool dryer balls. You’ll be glad you did.
