Let’s face it: Laundry isn’t the most eco-friendly of pursuits. Detergents are often laden with chemicals. And dryer sheets leave clothes with a pleasing scent—but often, there’s a residue that goes along with it.
Enter all-natural Happy Place Wool Dryer Balls. Today only, HSN is offering a sweet deal—six balls, a 2-ounce bottle of essential oil (choose from citrus, lavender, and sweet grass), and a handy canvas bag for $33 (was $50). You can also pay $11 a month for three months, with no interest.
These doodads are as functional as they are fun. You toss them in the dryer with your stuff. As they bounce around, they make fabrics soft and fluffy and allow hot air to reach clothes more easily, which shortens drying time. That means lower energy bills, and less wear and tear. Win win win.
If you’re an unscented type of person, use them as is. But if you like a little fragrance, add a few drops of essential oil to the laundry water or the wool balls themselves—it’s nice to be able to control the amount of scent.
They’re quite irresistible (your cat might want to steal them for playtime).
At $33 for six, they’re definitely pricier than a box of dryer sheets. But they last longer, slash drying time, and are chemical-free. And reviewers can’t get enough.
“These have cut down my drying time for most loads by 10 to 15 minutes, at least,” raves a fan. “Everyone is loving the scent and it doesn't seem to bother my sensitive-skin kid!”
Adds another dryer-ball devotee: “Love this product. We don’t realize how many chemicals we are subjected to on a daily basis. I have used them five times now and am very pleased with the results. Bye bye Bounce.”
