Felted Wool Dryer Ball Tutorial

Green up your laundry routine with this week's How-To Thursday: Felted Wool Dryer Balls  by Liz, from TheSittingTree.


How To Make Felted Wool Dryer Balls:
This winter, we weren't able to hang dry laundry in the house due to some moisture issues in the basement, so I wanted to come up with a more eco~friendly, non~toxic way of doing laundry through the colder months. After some research, I found wool dryer balls to be an energy efficient & safe alternative to toxic dryer sheets, fabric softeners, and other plastic dryer balls.





Just a few of the benefits of natural Wool Dryer Balls:
*Natural Fabric Softener
*Non~toxic
*Reduces wrinkles
*Eliminates static cling {this was a big one for us, and it really works!!}
*Quiet while tumbling
*Cuts drying time in half by absorbing all of the moisture from the clothing
*Fun & Safe for babies and pets
*Safe for all cloth diapers.  {The waxy residue from fabric softeners and dryer sheets will decrease absorbency of diapers}
*You can scent them naturally with a couple drops of essential oils {just let them dry first}


Please visit Liz, at TheSittingTree, for her original post and other eco~friendly tutorials.  In her own words, "Come join me under The Sitting Tree for stories about my life as a wife to my best friend, proud mama of three homeschooled boys, obsessed knitter and lover of Mother Earth."


You can also find TheSittingTree on Etsy with a shop full of knitting patterns, upcycled clothing, handmade soaps and other natural handmade products for the whole family.
