These Wool Dryer Balls asked me if I want to live a health-conscious and eco-friendly life and I was like, "Ummm...." And then they said I should replace the chemical-laden dryer sheets I'm currently using with one of their ultrasoft and reusable 100% organic New Zealand wool globes and I was like, "Ummm...." And then they said that if I do, my per-load drying time will shorten by 10 to 20 minutes, and what do I think about that when I have no clean shirts and dinner with She-Ra: Princess of Power's parents in an hour? And what also do I think about the dollar savings I'll see on my electrical bill when I don't have to run the dryer for a second cycle, or ever buy conventional, single-use fabric softeners ever again?

And I was like, "Oh hell yeah, Wool Dryer Balls! Hand yourselves over!"

Wool Dryer Balls say they're a natural substitute for standard dryer sheets. One without the chemicals that coat your clothes, sheets, and towels. And then your skin. Another benefit: since these balls are handmade (by impoverished Nepalese women, no less, as part of the company's efforts to support fair trade) and contain nothing but pure, organic wool, they are suitable for ye of the sensitive epidermis, and won't cause itching or rashes, or stir up allergies.

Wool Dryer Balls' naturally present lanolin also creates humidity during use, which translates to less dryer friction, and less static and wrinkles in dried loads.
