What do Dryer Balls Do?
They help keep your laundry from clumping together in the dryer, which reduces dry-time. They hold heat, which also helps reduce drying time. They reduce and can eliminate static cling, naturally. They are a natural, safe and earth-friendly alternative to traditional dryer sheets / softeners. They are fun & easy to make and are even great as gifts!
Using dryer balls with essential oils at home: For the FIRST USE, add a few drops to each dryer ball when you begin the laundry in your washer. Set the dryer balls aside until the wash is done. This will allow the oils to absorb into the dryer balls and later disperse more evenly as the dryer runs. Use 3 - 5 dryer balls /load. Re-apply oils as desired or maintain a constant scent by adding oils about every 5 loads.
