There is not much we love more than a fresh fluffy towel, in fact, one of the main reasons why we love staying in hotels so much is because you get them on tap.
The problem is, after constant washing, our own towels seem to lose their mojo – and the same could be said for some of our favourite jumpers.
Sold? You soon will be.
Why we love them:
Dryer balls are reusable and therefore much less wasteful than using a fabric softener or dryer sheets, making them a more sustainable option. They also claim to decrease drying time and reduce wrinkles in fabric, meaning you won’t need to do so much ironing. The dream.
We particularly love the way they fluff up our towels wash after wash.
Plus, the wool balls help to minimise static, which can help make clingy clothing a thing of the past.

How they work:
Add the wool balls to your dryer and they’ll bounce around gently with your clothes. They separate your laundry, allowing hot air to circulate more efficiently, which cuts down drying time.
What the reviews say:
“These drier balls are great. They stop the clothing tangling up during drying time especially the bedding. They help lessen creasing and they stop static building up on static vulnerable items.”
“Great alternative to fabric softener. Makes towels fluffy and there was much less ironing needed on clothing items such as jeans and acrylic jumpers, which was a lovely surprise.”
“Bought these after reading the reviews and couldn't be happier. Cuts drying time hugely. Added bonus, they don’t make the annoying sound like the plastic ones do.”
“Great. Doing exactly what I needed. Clothes are much fluffier and less ironing involved.”
