As manufacturers, retailers, and users of cloth diapers, the staff at Cotton Babies collectively has a thorough understanding of the challenges and opportunities families face while using cloth diapers. We believe in keeping laundry simple and using what works best for each family. Of course, we do have products we tend to lean toward. For example, bumGenius has its very own brand of laundry detergent formulated specifically to be gentle on baby, but strong enough to effectively clean your laundry, dirty diapers included.
When it comes to drying diapers, we recommend line-drying or tumble dry low. We also have a tip that will help speed things along and shorten drying time: bumGenius Wool Dryer Balls.
What are wool dryer balls?
100% wool! Our dryer balls don’t have any weird filling – just wool through and through. We even cut one open so you could see. Wool is really cool! It naturally absorbs moisture, so it decreases how long it takes your laundry to dry. That means they can save you time and money. Cha-ching!
Wool dryer balls replace your dryer sheets or fabric softener. Avoid the added chemicals in dryer sheets and reduce your waste by choosing a reusable option. One set will last a long time! To be honest, I have 2 sets because a ball or 2 typically get wrapped up when I pull clothes out of the dryer. I should probably just fold as I take everything out of the dryer, but that’s not very likely to happen. Anyway, they can actually reduce drying time by up to 20%!
Non-Toxic and Hypoallergenic
Wool dryer balls are great for people with sensitive skin. There are no added scents or dyes to cause a reaction.
They really work! By bouncing around with your clothes, wool dryer balls will help reduce wrinkles and static cling. They will make your clothes feel softer.
