When dryer sheets came out sometime in the 60s, people though that they are the revolutionary invention that will change how we use clothes dryers and that will become an integral part of every household. However, it turned out that they are not so great and that we need something better. As it happened, it turned out that we need to go back to the basics and star using only the most environmentally friendly materials that can be hand-crafted into dryer balls that also bring the mechanical dimension to the way they work.
For instance, Grey Wool Dryer Balls that you can get from Allure Wool. They are handmade, every single one of them, using nothing but the most natural merino wool that has been treated traditionally, which means that no chemicals were used of any kind in making of these balls, including the coloring which is also natural and perfectly environmentally friendly. With no chemicals included, these dryer balls are simply perfect for baby clothes and for clothes that are worn by particularly sensitive or allergic people.
We all know that clothes dryers do not do their job perfectly. For one, they will give that unpleasant crunchiness to the clothes and they will increase the number of creases that will make ironing more difficult. In addition to this, and maybe even more importantly, dryers produce static electricity. Static electricity will cause the clothes to cling together and it might even give you a shock.
For these reasons, in the 1960, dryer sheets were developed, a small sheets of material which were treated with fabric softeners. And they truly do seem to do the job done. They prevent static electricity and they provide additional softness to the clothes that would otherwise be too crunchy. Unfortunately, over the years, people discovered the downsides of dryer sheets. For instance, they almost always contain various softeners and other chemicals that make these sheets unsuitable for use with children’s clothes and baby clothes. Furthermore, they can become quite an expense because they can be used only once.
Luckily, today, you can have a perfect alternative to these, something that is 100% natural, that is immeasurably more cost-efficient and actually more efficient than dryer sheets. We are talking about dryer balls, or more precisely, Green Allure Wool Dryer Balls.
