Looking to save money, time and effort when drying clothes

Climate and time have become the least allies when it comes to washing our clothes. And it is that, in the times in which we live, and with the rush in which we live, it is practically impossible to take a relaxed time to start washing and drying our clothes in a way that does not involve expending energy, and that is why we opted for the acquisition of a drying machine.

We want to save time and effort, but the traditional way does not help us, and we want more economy but we know that only drying it in the open air is the cheapest, but if it has not been possible for you to get out of the city mess, the rush, and you carry a dryer to dry your clothes, consider the following great idea when putting them out to dry.

These are wool balls for drying clothes that help you save money, energy and time by reducing the drying time of the dryer , and last but not least, eliminating the need to buy fabric softeners. By using 4 of these balls in the dryer, drying time can be reduced by 25-50%.

How do wool balls work to dry clothes?

The wool balls circulate and separate the laundry and send the hot, dry air to the core of the laundry load. The more balls you add, the faster the drying time. It also softens your clothes through the gentle friction of the wool felt fibers against the fibers of your clothes. And as if that wasn’t enough, they last you for years!

How to make a ball of wool to dry clothes

  1. Start with a skein of 100% wool yarn.
  2. To start your ball, wrap the yarn around your fingers about 20 times and then fold and wrap the yarn around the middle of that circle you just made about 20 more times.
  3. Now pinch the starts of your ball of yarn together and keep wrapping. Make sure to wrap well and tight.
  4. Fold the end of the yarn under some of the other strands of yarn to secure it.
  5. Repeat the steps above until you have made 4 or more balls.
  6. Now you are ready to give them the “felt” treatment. You are going to need a piece of ladies stockings. Place the first ball on the tip of the stocking and secure it there with a piece of embroidery floss or acrylic thread. DO NOT use wool yarn this time.

Put the “snake” stocking in the washing machine (the hotter the water, the better) and then the dryer (again, the hotter the better. Speeds up the felting process.)

This is how it will look after felting first. The fibers have been fused together and it is much smoother and firmer.

At this point you can make another layer of yarn and apply the “felt” step again if you want a larger ball. Keep in mind that they will get a little smaller over time as they continue to be used.

You just made your own dryer wool balls. If you want, you can even add a couple of drops of essential oil to the balls before putting them in the dryer. 1 – 2 drops of lavender or the essence that you like the most in each ball and your clothes come out smelling very pleasant. The scent should last for several charges.
