Dryer Balls

Dryer Balls

SKU: HC0003
PriceFrom $9.00

These dryer balls come directly from a Colorado alpaca farm! These dryer balls are all natural, hypoallergenic and are an excellent alternative to the chemicals of fabric softeners or dryer sheets for softening clothes, reducing static, eliminating wrinkles. A minimum of 2 balls is suggested and a set of 4 is recommended to generate maximum effectiveness, absorbing moisture from wet clothes while maintaining the humidity inside the dryer. 


Save time and money by decreasing drying time. The more dyer balls you have in your load, the quicker the clothes will dry (4 balls are recommended per load). They soften clothes by reducing static and eliminating wrinkles, without shedding on your clothing. Hypo-allergenic, they are made of 100% Alpaca fiber. Commercial fabric softeners and dryer sheets are filled with harmful chemicals and perfumes that coat your clothing, eventually ending up on your skin and inside your clothes dryer. They are durable as well! The balls may last anywhere from several months to years depending on use. Dryer balls may continue to shrink slightly with continued use, which is normal. They remain just as effective.


To care for your dryer balls: For your first use, run the dryer balls through a dryer cycle with wet towels. The balls may initially become "hairy." They will not shed on your clothes. Carefully trim off the fuzzy hair with a pair of scissors and they are all set. Over time, the balls may "pill" which is normal. You can shave the pills off or leave them alone. If cleaning the dryer balls becomes necessary, run under hot water, add a drop of dish soap and rotate ball between palms until lathered, rinse in warm, then cold water. Air or machine dry. 


Miss the scent of dryer sheets? Apply several drops of essential oils to your dryer balls.


How To Use

Simply place 2 - 5 balls in your dryer with your wet clothes. That's it- they do the rest! Felted dryer balls bounce around with your laundry to shorten drying time and reduce wrinkles without exposing your clothes to any of the chemicals used in dryer sheets or plastic dryer balls. We recommend using at least four dryer balls to help keep laundry items from tangling around each other and increasing the airflow around the fabric. You can add drops of essential oils to the dryer balls if you prefer a scented load.
