How to Make Wool Dryer Balls

Felted Dryer Balls @ponderthepath

Many years ago I learned to make my own laundry detergent and was thrilled to be able to avoid harsh chemicals and save a pretty penny. However, until recently, I continued to purchase dryer sheets because my husband cannot stand his clothes to have static electricity.

I was thrilled to find this very simple alternative to dryer sheets that is not only cost effective, it is also reusable and non-toxic. Throw a few felted dryer balls into the dryer to reduce static electricity, decrease wrinkles in clothing, and speed up drying time.

    The link to The Happy Housewife isn’t working for me. It comes up with a 404 page. Sounds like great idea though! I don’t use fabric softener or sheets but can’t stand the static.
