Healthy, Natural, Green week GREEN BELLE DESIGNS



Who doesn't want to cut down time on their dryer load right? My dryer takes at least 60 minutes to dry any load of clothes, no matter how big or small. Sometimes as much as 90 minutes. That's a LOT when you're doing 5-6 loads every week. That's a lot of time wasted too. Green Belle Designs was very generous and sent me 3 of her dryer balls. They are made out of wool yarn and they cut down on time dramatically. 


I chose the Lime Green and Turquoise and told her to surprise me on the third. She sent me a Petal Pink! Love these colors. The only weird thing is they arrived damp. You can see it in the plastic bag it was moist in there. To my understanding though they have to be felted first, so washed and then dried. I'm guessing they just didn't get dried all the way. Oh well!!

I LOVE these little balls. These 3 have cut down dryer time not by much, but by a little bit. I think in order to see a huge difference you need 6 of these or more. I do very large loads and I don't think 3 is enough, however. EVERY single load is now done within 45-60minutes. I purposely set the dryer at a shorter time to see if they would be dry and they were, it was about 60 minutes. I then set it even shorter and they were still dry, sometimes though I have to put it on for another 10 minutes or so, but I have found that it has cut down the time a little bit. I think I'll be buying 5 more and I think that will be plenty.

They work by pounding into the clothes to help them break apart and help them dry faster. If they're all bunched together they can't dry. This helps them dry more efficiently.

She has AT LEAST 20 different colors to choose from I'd say. Lots of choices.

Price: A st of 6 is $36. This is very reasonable to me. 6 of them can cut your dry time by 20%-40%!!!! Think of the savings! Probably $36 within your first 6 months Or at least a year.

Overall: ***** They make great play toys as well between dryer uses.
