I was thrilled to be recently introduced to the Willow Store, a environmentally friendly online store founded by a fellow mom in 2005 who was desirous of supplying women with natural reusable feminine care products that were sustainable as well as comfortable. Since their founding, they have expanded to include natural child care, including their own unique cloth diapers as well as natural home laundry and living, with reusable bags, towels, natural bedding, soap nuts, and wool dryer balls. They are whole-heartedly committed to supplying families with tools and resources that will help facilitate us in living as good stewards of our environment.
Today I am excited to introduce you to wool dryer balls! Wool dryer balls are made from natural wool that can be thrown in your dryer to naturally soften your clothing as well as decrease drying time. This is just another simple way that using a natural alternative to chemicals (no more dryer sheets!) is not only environmentally friendly but also kind to your wallet. The dryer is one appliance that takes a lot of electricity, so I knew that if this product could help with this two fold purpose, it was worth the small investment (only $19.95 for a pack of 3). I have been pleasantly surprised to see it help reduce the drying time by at least 1/3 the normal time. I started with a load of towels in my experimenting (since they take so long to dry!), and yes, it was a success! My towels were softer and dried significantly faster than usual.
Wool dryer balls are safe for all laundry (including cloth diapers!), and will last for years to come. Check out the cute color selection and choose a three pack for best results.
