Wool Dryer Balls
Price: $8.00

Individual sold for $8.00

These are made with local wool.

You’re probably wondering what these are, aren’t you? Well, they do a number of wonderful things:

1. They are an eco-friendly alternative to the conventional dryer sheet.

2. They do more than a dryer sheet by pulling the moisture out of your clothes so you don’t have to run your dryer as long, saving you time and money.

3. They reduce static just like dryer sheets do.

4. They soften your clothes like liquid fabric softener when they’re bouncing around your dryer. Fabric softener has harsh chemicals that make your clothes soft and also increase the flammability of your clothes putting you at risk of a dryer fire - not fun!

5. They’re wonderful toys for young children when they “accidentally” make their way out of the dryer! And great cat toys as well!!!

6. They’re made of 100% wool! 

7. They’re absolutely WONDERFUL for cloth diapers! They keep them soft and clean without the harmful chemicals in conventional dryer sheets.


Q - How long will these dryer balls last?
A - I know people who have used these for years and years! I have personally used mine for about 4 years now.

Q - What kind of wool do you use? Is it wool yarn, roving wool… ?
A - I use 100% wool roving which I felt.

Q - How big are these dryer balls?
A - Though they are individually made by hand they are the approximately the size of a tennis ball (except without that horrible racket and without the nasty toxins).

Q - How are these any better than the plastic (PVC) ones that I got from my local superstore?
A - They are VERY different actually! The conventional plastic ones you see on TV and in your local store are made from plastic and when heated can emit harmful smells that can irritate the lungs. They also do not speed up your drying time as my 100% wool dryer balls do. My dryer balls also do not make any extra noise unlike the plastic ones which sound like someone is trying to break into your house! Plastic dryer balls can also rip and tear some more delicate clothing as my dryer balls do not.

Q - Do they reduce static?
A - They sure do! Some other ways to help reduce static are to put a ½ cup of vineager in the rinse cycle of your wash and also to keep your natural fibers (cotton, silk, etc.) separate from your synthetic fibers (rayon, fleece, etc.) when in the dryer. The friction between the natural and synthetic is a major source of static.

Q - How many dryer balls do I REALLY need to use?
A - It really depends on what kind of load you’ve got. If you’ve got a small load of delicates then 2 to 4 will be more than enough. However, if you’ve got a huge load of nothing’ but fluffy wet towels and jeans then the more the better! I usually put in 6-8 in my really large, heavy loads. A good rule of thumb is, the more you use, the more it’s going to save you.

Q - How much are these dryer balls REALLY going to save me?
A - Again, it really depends on how many you use but starting with a set of 3 is a good place to start and they will save you between 40% in a small load to 25% in a large load. And it only increases with the more dryer balls you use! I recommend when all is said and done to use between 6-8 dryer balls. Did you know the average household in a year spends $20-$50 on fabric sheets and $65 on fabric softener?

Miss Erin is a fantastic human being! She truly went rnabove & beyond to help me become educated about some of my health issues at hand. I truly appreciate Erin´s precious time. And look forward to continuing to using her natural high quality products. Thank you Erin.rnrnrnrn — A.Borzick

I do love your spray. My oldest has an allergy to gnats (his ears will swell up to double the size, red and itchy). With your spray, we have not had any gnat bites!! Whoo Hoo! I will be ordering more once this one runs out. Thanks again! — Lacey M

I can't say enough about the baby's butt balm. It's the only thing that works on my son's sensitive skin, and we have used it on him faithfully since he came home from the hospital. If works so quickly and smells great! I only wish it came in a larger tin! — E Eden

★★★★★ Me again! This summer has been particularly hot, which my body responds to in a less than pleasant manner. It has been the case that only one deodorant, with especially questionable ingredients, would help. I decided to give this deodorant a try and..... to my surprise, it works! — C Jankowski

I was apprehensive of any diaper cremes when we first started cloth diapering, and my daughter developed a persistent yeast rash. Every time we thought we had it under control it would come back. After using Earthly Remedies butt balm regularly we haven't seen the rash return! And I love the tube applicator... no more messy fingers. :) — rnewell

I love how the Baby butt balm is in chap stick tube, so it's easy to apply and not messy at all! I use this at daycare and it works great as a preventative ointment, my little girl no longer comes home with a pink bum. Thanks for a great product Erin! — M. Phinney

I'm so excited to use this wash solution, and not just because I love how it smells. Having a child with a rare skin condition, finding a natural product with all ingredients disclosed gives me great peace of mind. — C Jankowski

My little one isn't in diapers any more but the arnica, calendula, and all natural ingredients in this wonderful cream have cleared up her eczema! — Jeni

My husband is a technician, so his hands are always rough, chipped, cracked, sore...etc. Anything you can think of. And being a guy I can never get him to apply lotion! I gave him some healing salve from Earthly Remedies By Rein and it worked magic on his hands! It didn't burn to apply, like lotion does to sore hands. Within 3 days you could see a complete change! — TJohnson

I loooove this wash solution, I use for my face everyday morning and night before applying moisturizer, it is awesome for dry skin since it is very light and doesnt dry up your skin after every use! — I. Coyle

Another great product... this one will not wipe off between diaper changes which it what sets it apart from a lot of other diaper balms. Love it! — Bsmaz

This cream is so nice! I glides on smooth and smells lovely. It works great every time I use it. And what makes it even better, is that it is safe to use with cloth diapers! Go Erin for making an awesome product! — Bsmaz

This is the best product EVER! I have dry cracked and sore heels. I have used all kinds of other products to fix this problem, but they never worked. The salve is the only thing that has EVER worked on healing my heels. My heels look and feel great. I enjoy wearing sandals and going barefoot now. I swear by this salve! :-) — KCornick
