5 Reasons Why Smart Sheep Wool Dryer Balls Make the Perfect Holiday Gift
  1. You can buy them for pretty much anyone.  Your child's teacher, your favorite aunt, your daughter away at college, or your married son with a baby on the way.  Anyone who does laundry, which is pretty much everyone, can appreciate these.
  2. You'll save your gift recipient money, so its the gift that keeps on giving!  They will no longer have to buy dryer sheets or liquid fabric softener, plus they will save on energy costs with shorter drying times.
  3. You'll help them go green, and who doesn't like that?  They'll feel good about no waste and no chemicals on their clothes.
  4. They'll last 3-5 years.  How many gifts last that long without breaking or needing to be replaced, or ending up in the trash bin?  Our wool dryer balls can be used over and over again with fabulous results.
  5. They are under $20.  With so many people to buy gifts for, it can be hard to find a meaningful gift that fits into your budget.  And while our dryer balls may be inexpensive, we haven't skimped one bit on quality.

Countdown to Thanksgiving

Just four days until Thanksgiving, and we are pretty excited over here at our house.  Does your family have any Thanksgiving traditions?  Every year, we put up a cardboard tree on the front door, and we add paper leaves, on which we write down the things we are grateful for.  Its always fun to see what things my children write down.  I know the "wii" makes it up there every year.  

As for me, this year I'm thankful for a simple home business that lets me make money while still running around with my kids.  I'm thankful for customers that purchase our wool dryer balls and sometimes even take the time to write kind emails and reviews.  So if you are reading this, I'd like to thank you for your interest in our small dryer ball company, and for coming to our website to learn more about our alternative to fabric softener.  THANK YOU!

Thanksgiving is almost here!
Is anyone else spending this weekend preparing to host Thanksgiving dinner? Over here at the Smart Sheep house, we are cleaning, sweeping, grocery shopping, and catching up on laundry in preparation to host my parents and other out of town family.  Last night when I was putting laundry in the dryer, one of the wool dryer balls rolled out, and made it all the way down the stairs.  I think the runaway ball will become another dog toy.  Gio loves his wool balls.

Stay tuned: Black Friday through Cyber Monday sales will be posted soon!!

Scenting Your Wool Dryer Balls with Essential Oils
I get a lot of emails asking about how to scent Smart Sheep wool dryer balls with essential oils and what kind of oils to use.  I recommend several brands including NOW foods (found on amazon), Doterra and Young Living.  The scents I recommend trying out first are lavender, lemon, tea tree, and orange.  

The easiest way to scent your dryer balls is to simply dab a few drops on 2-3 of the balls.  Let them dry for about an hour (or quick dry them alone in your dryer) and then toss them in with your laundry.  However, some people don't like this method because depending on the type of oil used, it may stain your balls.  (However, the dryer balls are still totally fine to use, they just may look funny.)  If you want to avoid oil stains on the balls, try injecting the oil inside by using a meat injector or syringe.

How often should you re-scent?  This depends a lot on the strength of oil used, and your personal preference, but generally I re-scent every 4-5 loads.  Hope your laundry will now be filled with wonderful, all-natural smells!

I love these so much, I sent some to my sis for her birthday!

Love the idea, love the product!
--Jonathan
These dryer balls are exactly what I was expecting. The price can't be beat I've seen them sell locally for 8 dollars a ball. I use these with a lot of our regular laundry but especially when drying our cloth diapers. They have cut down the drying time on our cloth diaper by 15-20 minutes!
--Nathan
I've used these in the dryer for about two weeks now, and they're fantastic. No more chasing dryer sheets, though I have to find an occasional rogue ball hiding in my sheets. I just leave them in the dryer. They do seem to make my clothes softer. I also add some essential oil to them for a little natural scent. Works for me!
--I like what I like gal
These work really well to keep static at bay without the use of harsh chemicals. I use only 3 so I shared the other 3 with my daughter and she loves them too. My dryer is close to my family room and these balls make very little noise. I once tried the rubber kind they sell at large housewares stores and they made such a loud racket I could not use them. I think I will buy some as gifts for people I care about.
