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!

Great find!
I didn't know quite what to expect at first. They are not silent, but they are very good at helping the clothes dry a bit faster and so far, no clinging. I put a couple of drops of lavender oil on them when doing the sheets, gave a nice fragrance to everything. I have used about 50 times and I like them a great deal. I would recommend them. One may get lost in a sleeve once in a while and I have to go looking for it.

Replaced Chemical Laden Dryer Sheets

These are great to replace your chemical laden dryer sheets. I was not using dryer sheets anyway because my daughter proved to me that if you use dryer sheets, then go to rinse out your dryer lint trap under water, the water will not leak through... it is like it sealed up the holes. She said it does the same things to towels and they will not be as absorbent when using dryer sheets.


these dryer balls work great. I sprinkle essential oils on the balls and my laundry comes out naturally scented.
Thank you for a great, natural product that I feel great about using.

Excellent Product for Reasonable Price
I love these wool dryer balls. They arrived quickly and work exceptionally well, including softening and reducing static cling in towels. Will buy again.

Fantastic

Fantastic...love that they are natural and not plastic. My clothes dry a minimum of 15 minutes faster. I will purchase more when these are gone. I've used them for several weeks now and just love how well they work. I do continue to use fabric softener, but only for the purpose of static.

One thing to keep in mind though, you must empty the lint tray after every dryer load. Since they are wool and natural, they do leave quite of bit in the lint tray. However the pros far out way the one con!

Work Well
We really like these. They are loud, but that is to be expected, they are balls bouncing around in your dryer, we just don't run the dryer at night. They work well. I do not notice the drying time being less, but that may just be us and our old dryer. But I do like that I don't have to always buy dryer sheets and since they are unscented, we can use them while drying our baby clothes too.

7 Reasons Why Wool Dryer Balls are Better Than Dryer Sheets and Other Fabric Softeners

1) Dryer balls reduce drying time and help clothes dry more efficiently which saves energy and money.

2) Dryer balls replace dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener saving you money because you can cross it off your shopping list!

3) Dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener can cause ezcema, and coat your clothing with chemicals.  Wool dryer balls are an all-natural, chemical-free alternative.

4)  Dryer balls can fluff up your down items, such as jackets and blankets.

5)  Dryer balls don't have an artificial smell and can be scented with natural oils like lavender, citrus, etc.

6) Liquid fabric softener will coat your towels, making them less absorbent.

7) Dryer balls last 2-4 years and for over 1,000 loads which minimizes waste.  Dryer sheets and fabric softener containers must be thrown away frequently and take up space in a landfill.

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