Try It Tuesday – Wool Dryer Balls

Got balls? πŸ˜‰

I have been going green in as many ways as I can, gradually. No, I am not that person that overhauls everything at once because hello, overwhelming!

But I have been working on safer, sustainable swaps, and my newest is using these wool balls in the dryer in place of dryer sheets (not good for the planet 🌎 and also not 🐾 dog-friendly!), and I was skeptical, but willing to give it a chance because that’s what I do, I give things chances 😊

Well, consider this skeptic a BELIEVER! I was told wool dryer balls could help reduce the drying time, and also that if you put some essential oil drops on the balls, your clothing would smell delicious.

It did, and they did! I usually set my dryer to “more dry”, because I can’t stand damp clothing and I almost always have full loads of laundry. This time I set it to “normal dry”, which I don’t know exactly what the time differential is between the two drying cycles, but I know often if I have jeans in there, they will still be slightly damp after a “more dry” cycle, and with the dryer balls, they were perfectly dry just using “normal dry”, so there is obviously some credibility there.

Oh and I used some Frankincense essential oil, and my clothing smells divine, still!

Make An Impact Monday – Reusable Coffee Cup

My new reusable coffee cup! So bright and pretty.

Look, do I think I can heal the world single-handedly? Of course I don’t.

But I can do MY part. And this small measure means 365 fewer plastic cups and straws existing forever in a landfill!

All steps have an impact – YOU have an impact!
