Dryer Balls from Salt Air Studio - Review

When I started cloth diapering not using fabric softener or dryer sheets was not a big deal for me.  My Hubby has never been a big one for either of them.  He doesn't really like anything that smells at all.  On our laundry I use EVERYTHING free and clear.  NO dyes and NO perfumes!!!  But I did notice that my diapers always had a major static problem.  There really wasn't anything I could do about it :(  BUT then I found out about 100% Wool Dryer Balls!!!  They have been a wonderful edition to ALL my laundry.

Ali from Salt Air Studio, located in CA, sent me a set of 2 dryer balls to review :)  Ali scented my dryer balls with Lavender.  I could smell the Lavender as soon as I opened my mail box:)  I do have to say that when I opened the package the scent was a little overpowering.  This was just because they were wrapped in a plastic bag for shipping holding in the scent.  I let them sit out on the counter overnight and in the morning they smelled GREAT!!

I throw them in with ALL of my laundry, not just my diapers.  I have notice with just the 2 dryer balls that I am able to cut down on drying time by about 15-20 minutes.  With more dryer balls I could cut down on a TON more drying time :)

My only problem with dryer balls is that I am ALWAYS losing them in my clothes :)  It is like a scavenger hunt to try and find them when I am done with laundry.  It is fun for my 3 year old to hunt through the clothes and see if she can find them all.

I would recommend EVERYONE to try dryer balls and especially the yummy smelling and vibrant colors from Salt Air Studio.  They are super fun to add to your laundry and help with drying like you wouldn't believe.  Plus they are a great price at only $32 for 4 dryer balls!!!

  1. Neat! They are located in my home state!

  2. This are so cool! I never knew that this is what it was for :]

  3. I too have stayed clear from dryer sheets after I found out all the brain & nervous system issues that they can cause. I recently tried some wool dryer balls & I love that they get rid of static with out causing harm to my family!!

    Hey have you signed up for the Summer Lovin' Event we're hosting yet? The grand prize is already almost $900!!


  4. Yes, it's definitely a scavenger hunt. I have some that I made, but they're falling apart. Would love some "real" ones. *grin* I also love that they're scented. I wonder if anyone has any tips to reduce static tho... We still have tons of static.

  5. anything to cut back drying time is worth the price! i wonder where their wool comes from...

  6. I love that they can come scented!! That is awesome!
