How do dryer balls work?

Wondering how dryer balls actually work? They work primarily by creating space between your laundry as it tumbles around the dryer. By getting between your clothes, they allow more hot air to circulate around all surfaces of your laundry. Used in correct proportion to laundry, they help your dryer work more efficiently. That means your clothes dry faster – and you can shut the dryer off sooner. Better for your wallet and the planet!

Dryer balls won’t damage your dryer in any way, or make loud sounds when they’re in use.

TIP: Apply essential oils on the dryer balls, and you’ll have a lovely, soft scent diffuser – inside and outside the dryer! Lemon or lavender can be lovely for this. Just apply a few drops and let sit for a couple of hours. When in use, the subtle fragrance will get passed on to the clothes.
