Dryer Balls replace those fabric softener sheets you throw in the dryer. Instead of using those to reduce static electricity and soften my clothes and towels, I’m using dryer balls. They are sold in sets of two at the big box stores and online. The more you have the better they work, so I bought six. Of course, they are often found wrapped up in pant legs, so I’m forever rounding them up. But isn’t that part of the fun of laundry? Now that balls are involved, maybe it could be considered a sport.
Even though a box of Bounce sheets lasted a while around here, I don’t just love fragrant things. So this was a pleasant alternative to me. I still use an occasional dose of liquid fabric softener, but I get one that’s fragrance free. I’m just funny that way.
I got my dryer balls at Walmart for around $9 for a 2 pack. Although it takes a little bit to recoup the cost (as I have six balls now), it’s well worth it to me. Laundry is never ending at my casa. Now it’s just a little less expensive and a lot more hypoallergenic.
Do you have any great cost-cutting savings for the laundry room? I’d love to hear from you. I’m all over a great idea!
