Dragonfly Dryer Balls
Dryer Balls - Bamboo with Activated Charcoal
*all copy by totally plastic free
Dryer balls are an eco-friendly swap for dryer sheets and have the added advantage of cutting down your dryer time by 30%-50%!
They do that by opening up pockets of air as they help toss and circulate the laundry.
Dryer balls typically last for 1,000 loads. Replace them when you notice that they've stopped reducing static. Depending on how much laundry you do, that could be 3 to 5 years (3 years is about 6 loads per week).
These dryer balls are handmade from bamboo fiber infused with activated charcoal. The dark grey coloring is natural, not dyed. Activated charcoal is known for it's antibacterial, antimicrobial and hypoallergenic qualities. The bamboo fiber is extremely soft yet durable. They're wonderful, light dryer balls that won't add that 'tennis ball thumping' noise in your dryer that so many other types of dryer balls do.
These are very soft and lightweight. Each ball weighs approx 1 oz and is about the same size as a tennis ball.
It's recommended to use 3 dryer balls per load. The more you use, the speedier the drying time. I've accumulated 9 dryer balls over the past few years so often toss in 4 or 5 per load just because I have them.
Cost is for 1 dryer ball.
