Dryer Balls: I'm now a believer!

I have been wanting to try some wool dryer balls for quite awhile and finally took the plunge with just two of them. I used them for the first time yesterday, and it took my load of Rearz one-size organic prefolds about 30% less time to dry than usual!! It's very hot and humid here right now, so I was extra impressed!

I am ordering four more--I figure I want a couple extra on hand in case my youngest decides to walk off with one or two (he's already cried over not being able to have them)!

Yep...they are great stuff. And adding a few more will improve your drying time. I use about 6 when I have a really big heavy load. Now that the weather is nicer, I am excited to not have to use the dryer quite so much!

I gave them a try a while back, with no luck. Maybe I should try them again.

I got them from http://www.etsy.com/shop/BareBebe A super sweet gal, and the dryer balls are extremely well made. She makes them with a core of cotton jersey for "extra bounce," and whatever she does, it works! I have four more coming from someone else, but I think I will get at least two more from Bare Bebe since I like them so well. Eight of them should be a good number!
