Essential Oils + Laundry + Wool Dryer Balls

There's one household chore that John is pretty much in charge of, and that's laundry.

I don't know why, but homestud has some pretty strict demands about laundry and the expediency in which it is completed.

"Laundry" and "expediency" don't really go together in my world, so I gladly relegated this chore to him. Aside from matching the socks, John does a pretty good job. To reward him for his efforts (see what I'm doing here?), I purchased a few jumbo wool dryer balls, handmade from Keep It Real Natural Living. (This is not a sponsored post. I just like Keep It Real Natural Living stuff.)

According to Rae, Keep It Real shop owner: 
[Wool dryer balls] bounce around in the dryer separating clothes, allowing more hot air to circulate through all the garments. As they tumble, the wool balls fluff your laundry, reduce wrinkles, and basically pummel the laundry to make it softer. They do so much more than a dryer sheet by pulling moisture out of your clothes so you don’t have to run the dryer as long.
You know that we don't buy fabric softener or dryer sheets, so shelling out a few bucks for dryer balls is a more natural alternative. We've found that dryer balls: 
  • Decreased our drying time by at least 15 minutes per large load. 
  • Soften our clothes naturally.
  • Are chemical free, because they don't contain crap as a softener additive. 
  • Can be re-used, which saves us even more money.
  • Doesn't make our towels feel 'slippery', like fabric softeners do.
  • Are made from a renewable resource. 
We do like to have fresh-smelling clothing and bedding, though. One way we do that is by putting about 2 drops of essential oil on each dryer ball. Our favorites are:

4. Once you enter your payment for your starter kit, you're set! Just sit back and relax until your kit is delivered.

  1. Love the wool dryer balls from this lady! Best investment! :)

    1. One of my new favorite oils for the dryer balls is patchouli. I also like ylang ylang.

  2. Your laundry room does not have to be a drab room that you close up and do not think about when you are not not washing or drying your clothes. There are improvements and even decor ideas that can make this area of your home more appealing and much more fun to be in. Even if your laundry room is really only a laundry area, you can still do things to maximize your space and make it a more comfortable place to be.

  3. I must admit that you're really good at this! First off, cheers for your great works! I was thinking if you experienced lots of cock ups when you were a beginner in writings and also I want to share with you this laundry service delivery maybe you need it one day.

  4. Once you start laundry service, begin by exploring your service area. Singapore delivery. Seek the business-capable places in your town and do your research. People, giant emplomostyers in your area and washing and dry cleaning areas can be found through some online research.

  5. When having a dry cleaning delivery service, never try to free yourself from the stain. You can also set the color or throw the color out of the fabric. But do not blow but rub if the fluid is poured into the cloth. Water or soda club flushing is usually OK.

  6. dry cleaning services are provided with chemical solvents technology and water-free cleaning services. These are closely checked for stains until the clothes are dry cleaned. Stains must be properly pre-treated in general, these polished textiles, before dry cleaning is finished
