I have been curious about dryer balls since I started cloth diapering, but I was also a little too skeptical to invest any money in them. What was I so worried about?! Like a lot of things I've grown up with (e.g. household cleaners and medicine), I've been conditioned to believe that the "natural" alternative to dryer sheets wouldn't be effective or efficient. So, for the longest time I used nothing in my dryer with cloth diapers. (Dryer sheets leave a residue on fabric, causing diapers to repel instead of absorb.) I was beyond stoked when Brooke at Bog Berry agreed to sponsor me for the Merry Fluffy Christmas giveaway so I could FINALLY see what all the buzz was about dryer balls.
Before I moved, Brooke sent me 6 wool dryer balls to try out. I immediately noticed a difference in my diaper laundry. The microfiber inserts didn't cling anymore and it actually did reduce the drying time. I usually have to run the dryer twice to get everything completely dry, but to my surprise, they were done after one cycle. Woohoo!
FACT: I don't use liquid fabric softener or dryer sheets at all anymore. I just keep my dryer balls in the dryer and I'm good to go!
