This idea comes from our friend Anusha Rajeswaran of Fish and Bull. Wool dryer balls are good for you and the environment. They reduce static cling, dry clothes faster, and will give your threads a natural scent with a few drops of essential oil. We like lavender, lemon, and bergamot. To use, place three or four wool dryer balls into the dryer with your laundry. Safety tip: Essential oils, although safely used in dryer balls, pose a fire risk so only use a few drops per dryer ball and wait at least one hour until completely dry before using with your laundry. Dryer balls last up to two years.
