A quick review..
I recently did a post about Wool Dryer Balls. You probably knew about them already. BUT did you know about SOAP NUTS?!
2 months ago, I ordered some natural laundry stuff off of Amazon. I ordered some Inco Little Helpers Wool Dryer Balls & some NaturOli Soap Nuts ( Soap Berries?).
I wanted to give them some time of testing before I wrote a little post. I do 2-3 loads of laundry per week, over about 8 weeks... I thought that was a pretty decent length of time.
So the Dryer Balls are a natural way to soften fabric without any chemical fabric softeners or disposable sheets. They come in a nice drawstring bag. I definitely feel my laundry has come out nice and fluffy and not static-y which is great! The listing says they don't make any noise during drying, but I kind of disagree. While the dryer cycles I can hear them hitting against the inside of the dryer. It isn't alarming or inconveniently loud, but it's definitely something I can hear. Just like if you have a big buckle or zipper that you hear clang against the door while it's drying... same kind of thing. My dryer is in an enclosed laundry nook anyways, so it's really not obtrusive.
One great idea to freshen the scent of clothes is toadd a few drops of essential oils to these balls before tossing them in. I loved this suggestion, but found that no matter how many drops of oils I added to the dryer balls, I still couldn't smell them by the end of the cycle! I'm not sure if theorange oil I used was not good quality, or if I need to add them in the last few minutes of the dry cycle only. Do you have any tips?
Overall I am very pleased with this eco-friendly laundry purchase and will absolutely continue to use these wool dryer balls.
Stop by tomorrow for a post on the soap nuts! :o)

** Product Packaging **
The 33.8 ounce bottle has a nice, sleek design. The blue and white label is aesthetically pleasing and does not look cluttered. Underneath the cap was a protective seal that was a pain to open. I'm glad the contents were protected, but I kept stabbing at it with a pen and during one stab I missed the target and smashed my finger!! (Actually drew blood!) Of course, this is just another manifestation of my clumsiness and barbaric way of getting through the seal, but seriously... that's some crazy plastic!
