Dryer Balls replace fabric softeners and dryer sheets.
They are handmade, 100% felted wool. The wool wicks the water from the clothing in the dryer, thereby cutting your drying time by approximately 25%. However, the dryer balls do not absorb the moisture. They simply pull the moisture out of the clothing, to evaporate in the dryer. So they come out of the dryer completely dry, ready for the next load.
They make great gifts and will last for years. Two balls are required per load. They come in a cloth bag for storage away from the cat, the children or dust.
