Raise your hand if, like me, you enjoy doing laundry.
Come on now, raise it high. Be proud. (or at least keep me company)
It’s time consuming, I know. But there is something to be said about a load of freshly washed laundry, straight from the dryer.
Is anyone still reading?
You’re probably thinking, “yeah, okay, we get it… you like laundry… where’s the recipe?”
I debated stepping outside of my normal routine to write about something non-food related. I wasn’t sure if you’d like it. I was over thinking. Over analyzing. It’s what I do best really. (just ask my husband) But I decided to just go for it. Write about a product I found at the gluten-free expo in Madison a few months ago… and hope you still come back. (to sweeten the deal, there’s a coupon code!)
From the moment I saw these Willow Store wool dryer balls, I was intrigued. I have seen other people use those plastic ball things in their dryers — which are loud! Not my style. It seemed like a pretty big claim that these wool balls could take the place of dryer sheets and reduce drying time significantly.
But did they ever!
Hence my farewell to dryer sheets. Since the first time I used them, I’ve been raving about them to everyone who is willing to listen. They just make sense. Especially for those of us who are constantly reading labels and concerned that our daily use item (cosmetics, lotions, etc.) may contain gluten, or other ingredients our bodies do not tolerate well.
Things I’m loving about wool dryer balls:
- made from natural felted wool
- they really DO reduce drying time (by almost half, in most cases)
- NO chemicals, which means no extra film of yuck on your clothes
- they last for years — saving you lots-o-cash on dryer sheets!
- they come in cool colors, but won’t bleed onto your clothes
