LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls are a reusable, energy-saving alternative to dryer sheets. LooHoos are made in Maine, USA, using 100% Domestic Wool. They naturally soften clothes without the use of unwanted harmful chemicals contained in dryer sheets. Because of wool's natural ability to absorb odors and toxins, LooHoos leave your clothes smelling fresh and clean. LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls can also reduce your dry time by 10-25%, saving you money. Within a few short months your LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls can pay for themselves. LooHoos come in a beautiful range of non-toxic colors including undyed versions. The colorful wool we use is dyed at a US dyehouse using a low-acid dyeing process which is a very safe process. At LooHoo Headquarters, we have been using a mixture of colorful and natural LooHoos in our dryer with EVERY load for over 8 years, and I have never had any colors run.
Wool is used because of its incredible properties including the ability to:
- Naturally soften clothes due to friction of the balls against the fabric
- Make clothes fresher and smell cleaner since wool has the ability to absorb toxins and odors
To help reduce static:
1. Stop dryer 10-15 minutes before end of the cycle
2. Wet 1-2 LooHoos, and toss it back in the dryer
This helps reduce static since it prevents the air inside the dryer from becoming too dry, which creates more static.
For best results, use at least 3 LooHoos for small to medium loads. Use 5 LooHoos medium to large loads and 9 - 12 in large to extra large loads.
LooHoos can easily be cleaned in your washer and dryer. Just toss them in the washer on a warm water cycle and dry them in the dryer.
LooHoos will last for hundreds and hundreds of loads. After months of constant use, they show some signs of wear but can still be used.
