Keep pillows and comforters fluffy by using wool dryer balls during the dryer’s cycle.
The wool dryer balls help prevent down-filled items from becoming lumpy and are said to help prevent static cling and wrinkles, soften fabrics and help speed up the drying process. As a bonus, they contain no chemicals and can either be made or purchased online.
How to Make Wool Dryer Balls
Add a few drops of essential oils to the dryer balls to add a pleasant scent to your dried laundry.
Be aware that these dryer balls eventually breakdown after so many tumbles in the dryer, so they will need to be replaced.
If you do not have any dryer balls on hand, a clean, new tennis ball might due. However, test the ball first to see if the color may bleed on to your item. Be mindful of the heat level you use in your dryer as that may cause color to transfer from the tennis ball to the item being dried. To be safe, use a low heat or no heat cycle.
