Remember that hint about tossing tennis balls in the laundry? Now there’s something better. LooHoo d wool dryer balls look like, guess what? I tossed three in with a load of whites and it was done fast. That will save electricity, and your money.
LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls are reusable dryer balls that reduce drying time (by 25 percent) and soften laundry naturally, makers say. They’re made of lanolin-rich wool that create motion to allow more air to circulate around your wet clothes. They’re good for years and are even good with baby clothes. If we’re trying to save the earth, use them on a load of cloth diapers. They’re made in the USA. I’ll keep them in a little basket on my dryer.
