There’s something about fresh laundry. Clean breezes, spring meadows, mountain rains… It wouldn’t be so bad if dryer sheets and fabric softeners really were loaded with all these fresh natural scents. But the truth is that after a spin in the dryer with a fabric softener sheet, your clothes contain a long list of dangerous and toxic petrochemicals.
We live in our laundry. We wear clothes all day long, sleep between sheets at night, cuddle up in fluffy towels, and wrap our little ones in cloth diapers and cozy blankets. If our laundry is full of chemicals – especially chemicals designed to stay in fabrics and slowly releasing all day long – then our families are, too.
Why put yourself through this dangerous spin? LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls accomplish all the goals of dryer sheets without any of the health or environmental costs. The lanolin-rich wool fibers reduce static cling, the friction of the balls naturally softens clothes, and wool absorbs odors to make clothes smell fresher and cleaner – all without the use of chemicals. These safe, durable, handcrafted dryer balls also cut your drying time significantly, saving energy as well as money!
We hope that you've ditched the dryer sheets for LooHoos. Do you have friends and family that are thinking about making the switch?
