ReusaWool Dryer Balls Review

Dryer Balls

When considering eco-friendly products there are two main considerations: the possible effects on your health and the environment. Something that is used in many households are fabric softener sheets which are good for neither. They’re not very economical either since you have to throw them away and get new ones regularly. That’s why it’s important to consider alternatives. When I was presented with the chance to review the ReusaWool Dryer Balls I was excited to try them out and share my ReusaWool Dryer Balls Review!

Wool Dryer Balls are a great replacement for chemically laden dryer sheets. They can reduce static and soften your clothes without the harsh chemicals. In addition, they are a big money saver! Not only can they be used for years, but they also reduce drying time by up to 50%, which can save on your electric or gas bill (depending on the type of dryer you use), and reduces that output, which is better for the environment as well! Plus, you can use them with all of your laundry.

For my review I received a box of ReusaWool Dryer Balls, which includes three wool dryer balls. The first thing I noticed was they are made in the USA, which is something I always appreciate. Plus, it notes that they are handmade, which I think is really unique. I really appreciate a company that puts a lot of effort into their products to make them the best. When looking at the dryer balls I could tell they were handmade and a lot of care and time is put into making them. They are very solidly made.

Dryer Balls Review

In addition to being impressed with the craftsmanship of the ReusaWool Dryer Balls, I also like that they are fairly small. Although I can hear them a little while they’re in the dryer, it’s not very loud, which is nice particularly because I always remember I forgot to put the last load of laundry from the day in the dryer until everybody else has gone to sleep! I have noticed a slight reduction in dry time and static as compared to not using anything. Our clothes are soft after using as well – without chemicals!

I also added a couple drops of lavender essential oil so they would smell good, too! I’m glad they included that idea in the information they included with the dryer balls because I wouldn’t have thought of it otherwise! After it fades I’m sure you can even add drops of a different essential oil so you can change the fragrance to spice it up a little!

Overall, I’m very happy with the ReusaWool Dryer Balls. I appreciate their handmade craftsmanship and love that they are better for our health, environment, and our wallets!

  1. Stoic Kitty

    I would love to use the wool dryer balls to soften my sheets without fabric softener that can cause skin reactions.

  2. I love that you can scent laundry without chemicals.

  3. Jan Hall

    Sounds great. How do they reduce drying time? I haven’t used fabric softener or dryer sheets in years. I use vinegar in the rinse cycle instead.

  4. I love that you can soften clothing without chemicals.

    I have been wanting to use these for sooooo long – ever since I stopped using dryer sheets years ago because of the phthalates!

  6. I love that you add your own scents.

    We have used the plastic dryer balls but these look much better. We have a lot of contact allergies in our family, so avoiding chemicals is very important.

  14. Candy Kelley

    Great idea eco friendly and reusable. What more could one ask for. It would save a lot of money and waste by not using dryer sheets

  15. Nancy Loring says:

    I have heard a lot of good things about these dryer balls. I am going to have to get some.

  16. Marcia Lee

    I have wool dryer balls and I do like them. They decrease the drying time and reduce static. I feel however that I still need something additional for my towels. I use vinegar in the laundry but the towels are not soft. Any ideas?

    • How many are you washing at a time? Have you tried washing a load with just Washing Soda and vinegar? I would maybe reduce the load if there are many and do a load in just Washing Soda with vinegar as the “softener” then your dryer balls in the dryer, of course. Or if you have hard water, you may need a water softener. I hope that helps!

  17. Huh. I never new dryer balls came in wood. That’s great! And being able to use essential oils is definitely a plus. Love the “fresh from the dryer” smell. :)
