#shareitsaturday / why we love our wool dryer balls – another GIVEAWAY!

the daily Starr share it saturday

So many of you commented on last week’s holiday gift guide giveaway about the dryer balls! Our family switched almost a year ago and we haven’t turned back. No more money wasted on dryer sheets and no yucky chemicals getting into our clothes.

We use a combination of 3 DIY homemade dryer balls + 3 Norwex Tumble and Fluff Dryer Balls.

So, you may be wondering – why do we mix homemade and the Norwex?

Simple.

In my research, I found that you need at least 5-6 dryer balls for them to be most effective on larger loads of clothing.

The first 3 homemade dryer balls took me A LONG TIME to make. First, you have to find the right kind of wool, then you have to actually make them, then there is the process of felting. If you’re patient and enjoy crafting, you may actually enjoy making them yourself. Here’s exactly how I made mine in case you’re wondering.

So, life got busy and I had ALL the intentions of making more to go with my 3. Andddd it didn’t exactly happen.

Meanwhile, I started using Norwex products and discovered that they sell premade dryer balls made of 100% wool!! YES!!!

I was sold.

So, we have our mixed dryer balls and I love that they help dry our clothes quicker, fluff more for fewer wrinkles and that they reduce static.

NOTE: static. Yes, there is STILL static sometimes. Here is what you need to know. If you overdry your clothes (aka turn them on AGAIN AND AGAIN to get the wrinkles out because you kept forgetting the clothes, yeah, we do that too) then they will be more apt to have static. Also, certain types of clothing will naturally have more static – fleecey items, etc.

I’ve learned a few tricks to reduce the static:

#1 – Add safety pins to your dryer balls.

#2 – Add a few drops of essential oils – we like lavender and lemon. Bonus, your clothes will smell amazing.

Now – how about another GIVEAWAY??

Yes – I’ve got a few extra sets of dryer balls and I’m going to give away 2 more boxes of the Norwex Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls!!

ENTER TO WIN: Comment below by Saturday, December 9, and tell me why you want to try out the dryer balls! That's it!

We’ll draw two random names as winners next Saturday (Dec, 9), and announce here on the blog.

PS – I have a limited number of boxes of Norwex Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls available in my inventory for anyone local that wants to try out or as a gift for Christmas. 

They are normally $29.99 plus tax and shipping. I have them available for a flat $30, just let me know if you’re interested and we can deliver them to you this week. If you live out of town, you can learn more about the dryer balls and a link to purchase them here.

  1. Wow another give away? That’s awesome, I would like to try the dryer balls because my husband has skin issues and we can not use fabric softeners. Now that I told you why I would like to win, feel free to not put me in the drawing since I won something last time! Perhaps I will buy some after we find a house and move!!
    Love your blog and started the book I won today!

  2. Since you talked about them before I did make my own, (one of THOSE women tha love crafts) We have to go to the Laundromat now as we have moved and our home is just to small to house another thing. I am interested in knowing about the essential oil on the ball and the safety pin? What brand of essential (newbie to those guys) and how much.Do you do that each time? I would love my clothes to smell better when they exit the dryer. Thanks.

    • I’m glad that you’re one of those crafty people like me!!! We love our essential oils. We use Young Living and have used them for almost 5 years. I’ll do a post soon and explain more. We only do the drops on the dryer balls every so often. They last many loads.

  3. I would love to try these dryer balls. Have been wanting to try and switch from dryer sheets. I am always trying to find ways to use less chemicals in our house.
