LooHoo wool dryer balls - Q&A

LooHoos are wool dryer balls that you put in your clothes dryer to help lift and separate your clothes. Using several LooHoos creates a constant motion, allowing more air to circulate around your wet laundry so your clothes dry faster. The more dryer balls you use, the less time it takes to dry a load and you can reduce your dry time by 10 –25%. 

LooHoos are ideal for any and all laundry and are an essential asset to help reduce dry time, conserve energy and save you money.

Toss all your LooHoos into your dryer and let them happily roll around with every load of laundry.  

It varies based on the size of your load of laundry. For best results, use at least 3 LooHoos for small to medium loads. Use 5 LooHoos medium to large loads and 9 - 12 in large to extra large loads.

It depends on how much laundry you do. LooHoos will last for hundreds and hundreds of loads. After months of constant use, they show some signs of wear but can still be used. We recommend adding a Refresher Pack every 6 to 12 months.

Wool is used because of its incredible properties including the ability to:

- Naturally soften clothes due to friction of the balls against the fabric

- Make clothes fresher and smell cleaner since wool has the ability to absorb toxins and odors

At LooHoo Headquarters, we have been using a mixture of colorful and natural LooHoos in our dryer with EVERY load for over 8 years, and I have never had any colors run. 

LooHoos come in a beautiful range of non-toxic colors including undyed versions. The colorful wool we use is dyed at a US dyehouse using a low-acid dyeing process which is a very safe process.

Having trouble with static?

Even though static is tough to deal with, especially in the winter,there is something you can do.


1.  Stop dryer 10-15 minutes before end of the cycle

2.  Wet 1-2 LooHoos, and toss it back in the dryer

This helps reduce static since it prevents the air
inside the dryer from becoming too dry, which creates more static.

Care Instructions

We hear from many of our customers that their LooHoos ended up getting dirty and needed to be cleaned. This is no problem at all. LooHoos can easily be cleaned in your washer and dryer. Just toss them in the washer on a warm water cycle and dry them in the dryer.

LooHoos are durable and long lasting and can be used in your clothes dryer for a long time. They'll not end up in a landfill like dryer sheets.

LooHoos & Essential Oils

You can place drops of your favorite essential oil on your LooHoos to easily scent your fresh laundry.  Just add a few drops and toss the LooHoos into your laundry.  In order to infuse the most amount of fragrance, it's best to add the essential oil in the last 5 to 10 minutes of your dry cycle.

 

Have fun selecting the best oil combination for your laundry.  You could try lavender for your sheets and lemon for your towels. 

 

Some of our customers favorite essential oils to use on their LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls include: Lemon, Sandalwood, Lavender, Purification, Purify, Bergamot, Orange, Peace & Calming, Lime, Geranium, and Spearmint.
