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