The Frugal Laundry Room

dryerball2

In my frugal laundry room we have something new, dryer balls. You’ve probably been using them for years but I am not a first acceptor. So I have had my dryer balls for about 5 months. I was skeptical but I bought them because I wanted to save money on dryer sheets. I bought 3 balls at Wal-Mart for $4.97. Let me tell you these things work really well our clothes come out nice and soft as if a fabric softener was used.  These balls are also perfect for your septic system because I am prohibited from using liquid fabric softener in the septic system. So I am no longer buying Fabric Softener. I may need to buy a couple of balls each year but this is nice little savings from the fabric sheets that I was previously using. So I would like to encourage you to buy a couple of these things and try them out in your dryer and see if you can’t make the switch!

So the recap:
Septic Users: Eliminates all fabric softeners from entering your system
Frugal Crowd: Saves money eliminating the expense of buying fabric softener.
Green Crowd: Eliminates Fabric Softener sheets and the liquid …you can also order more expensive pvc free ones if you just look around on line.

  1. arent they great? May I suggest wool dryer balls? You can buy them scented with your favorite EO…ours smell like lavedar. YUMMY!! 🙂

    You can also use vinegar in place of fabric softner. Its a good idea to do this every now and then with your bath towels anyway…helps remove the detergent buildup.

  2. ok, 2 thing. We don’t use fabric softener on many of our things due to easton escema, it’s not bad but detergent/softner can def make it worse.

    1) i use vinegar on almost all my loads. it help maintain colors, removes smells, and softens clothes. I put it in my downy ball and throw it in the washer.

    2) I have had our dryer balls since before we had charity in our house. so what about 2 years?? So they last a long while. and work fab!! oh but don’t squeeze them(when they’re soft form the heat), sure they will go right back, but the next time you use them they crumble.

  3. After many years we gave up our dryer. I have several free standing drying racks. I also have a cloths rod that I hang all shirts, and tops on hangers. I use vinegar in the washer’s rinse dispenser.
    I don’t think that a dryer ball works in a front loading washer, which is the most frugal type of washing machine.
