I would like to introduce you to another great Made In America Company!
If you are looking for a way to make your laundry more "green" then you'll want to check out dryer balls! Not only are you avoiding the nasty chemicals found in most dryer sheets, but you are conserving energy as well by using wool dryer balls! By using four to six wool balls in your dryer at a time with your load of laundry can significantly help reduce static and decrease your drying time, cutting your energy usage!
Maple Hill sells quality, undyed, 100% wool dryer balls made of roving instead of yarn.
Roving is the un-spun wool after it’s been cleaned and carded, and functions as a dryer ball better than yarn because it is able to absorb more and makes for a quieter ball!
I received two white unscented balls to review like the ones pictured below.
I loved the look and feel of these dryer balls after a month of use and they are still in great shape.
They have pilled some but that is to be expected and gathered a little lint, but they are holding up great!
Maple Hill suggests using at least four balls per load for smaller loads and around six for larger loads for best results and for larger loads like towels and cloth diapers up to 12 balls. I am taking this to be true, since with only using two balls. I didn’t see much difference in my drying time with my big capacity dryer. I feel that they did help cut down on the static quite a bit and helped keep my clothes fluffed.
If you plan to give these a try, be sure to have 4-6 handy to receive the maximum benefits. I truly believe that these dryer balls from Maple Hill are of the highest quality, but I don’t feel that I got to experience all of their benefits because I was only given two.
You can purchase these at the Maple Hill Dryer Balls website for about $29.99 per 6-pack (large size).
