How does it work? Simply throw three to four balls into the dryer with your wet cloths and let them do all the work.

“Never buying dryer sheets again! This is an amazing purchase as you will never need to buy dryer sheets to have soft, non-staticky clothes out of the dryer, you just throw the balls in with every dryer load,” says one five-star reviewer.

“The only thing this product leaves me missing about dryer sheets is that there's no scent. The product says you can put essential oils on the balls and it will make your clothes smell nice, but all it did was make the balls smell nice, no scent transfers to the sheets or whatever you put in the dryer, so that's too bad,” cautions another. “But when you're saving the planet and your wallet by not buying dryer sheets, who really cares about the artificial chemically scent of dryer sheets.”

On top of all that, these hypoallergenic are free of chemicals, fillers and synthetics making it the perfect skin-loving alternative for those have sensitive skin, allergies, acne.

For only $17, each pack comes with six 100 per cent organic New Zealand wool dryer balls that you could use for up to over a thousand loads of laundry.
