    How Do Wool Dryer Balls Work?

    1. Place the wool dryer balls in the dryer with your wet laundry from the washer.
    2. As these balls tumble around with your clothing they will help pull any excess water out of your clothes, reducing the amount of time it takes to dry your clothes.
    • They also then redistribute this water into your dryer which helps avoid wrinkles and static.
    • The bouncing of the balls throughout the dryer acts as a natural fabric softener and will help fluff and soften your clothing.
