This year I am making some small changes for the health of myself and my family by trying to use more organic, chemical free, and non toxic food and products in our home. Of course this is not an overnight switch, but more like a journey for me since it can be very overwhelming to make huge changes to things that you’ve been using for years.
One of the first places in my home that I looked for ways to go chemical free was in the laundry room! This was just after I learned that my favorite fabric softener contained….are you ready for this? Formaldehyde. Yes that stuff used for embalming. Yuck! That’s not the only chemical found in your laundry detergents and softeners. You can easily do a google search and come across some pretty scary stuff. Plus, no one knows the long term effects of these chemicals on anyone, especially children. With four kids in the house, one of them being under the age of two, I really wanted to find a safer alternative to what I was currently using, but I didn’t want to have to spend a lot more either.
I had the opportunity to try out a set of Reusa Wool dryer balls in my laundry and I know I’ll never go back to my old dryer sheets again. Reusa Wool dryer balls are made in the USA of 100% natural wool and are a completely safe alternative for softening your clothes without harsh chemicals. Your laundry will come out virtually static free as well because the wool balls soak up a small amount of moisture at the beginning of a load. At the end the moisture is released, providing a more even dry for your laundry.
With Reusa Wool you can expect your laundry to dry up to 50% faster than before, saving you time and utility costs! They are great on ALL types of laundry too, and are gentle on fabrics without leaving residues. These are perfect for those with sensitive skin issues too! I tried these on my daughter’s cloth diapers and they worked wonderfully! Additionally, Reusa Wool dryer balls will last you years and years and are available in natural, undyed wool or in a dozen fun colors as well. If you are like me, and you still want laundry that smells really nice too, you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the wool balls before drying and they will leave your clothes with a nice scent.
For me, using a product like Reusa Wool is a no brainer, because I have become very concerned with the amounts of chemicals we are putting into our bodies every day. Little changes like this can make a big impact on your health and the environment as well. I found the wool balls very easy to use….just toss in the dryer and go. I tested them on all of my laundry, including my daughter’s cloth diapers and every load was dry in about half the time that it usually takes my older dryer to get the job done. Plus, every load was static free and super soft! I highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone who might be looking for a safer, cost effective way to do laundry.
