Here's Why You Should Be Using Dryer Balls!

Let me guess. When you dry your laundry, you use scented dryer sheets to make them smell good and feel extra soft. Have you ever thought about what makes up those dryer sheets? 

There are countless chemicals that permeate each dryer sheet. Chemicals that are more harmful than kitchen cleaning products according to one study.[1] The artificial fragrance, toxins, and even animal fat are bad, but that’s not even accounting for the chemicals that aren’t on the box. 

When used, all those nasties make their way from the dryer sheets, onto your clothes, towels, and sheets, and onto your skin. 

What if I told you there was a better way to dry your clothes? A way that was natural, clean, and didn’t use toxic chemicals. 

Welcome your new best friend: The wool dryer ball

Faster drying

If you’ve ever thrown a load of laundry in the dryer only to find that top you were planning on wearing is still wrinkled and wet, crumpled in between half-wet, half-dry pants and pajamas. We’ve all been there! 


Ditch the frustrated feeling toward your laundry by using dryer balls. The thick, condensed wool draws moisture away from your clothes, making them dry faster and on a lower temperature. The bouncing balls also keep your laundry from becoming clumped, as well as reducing static and wrinkles.  

Money saving

No one likes to spend money. What if I told you that by using those ratty old dryer sheets, you were wasting money? Have I got your attention?


Yes, in addition to time, dryer balls help you save money. The drying time decreases per load, leading to less use of electricity and heating. Dryer balls also have a long life span and can be used for up to 3 years. You can kiss those boxes of dryer sheets goodbye!


To round out the numerous benefits to using dryer balls, they are chemical-free and wonderful for the environment by not emitting unnecessary toxins into the air! The Cosy House Dryer Balls are handcrafted from 100% organic New Zealand sheep’s wool. This means they’re free from harsh chemicals, dyes, and artificial fragrances that are packed into dryer sheets.
