Simply throw in the dryer with your wet laundry. Keep in mind, the more you use at once, the more they will help reduce dry time and soften... so go ahead... throw them all in!
•How much will my dry time be reduced?
Using at least 4 wool dryer balls a small load can be reduced by up to 1/2, a large load by about 1/4. It is very hard to say exactly how much it will be reduced because there are so many variables included... the type of dryer, brand of dryer, type of laundry, how large of a load, the type of fabrics, what settings you use, how many balls you use. Be sure not to overload your dryer though, the larger the load the less the dry time will be reduced. You have to make sure there is enough room for the dryer balls to bounce around. The more balls you use at once, the more reduction you will see in dry time. Using just 2 balls on a large load you may not see much.. using 6 or 8 balls on that same load you should see some marked reduction. Think of it like blow drying your hair... if you just stick the dryer up against your head it will take forever to dry... if you run a brush through it separating your strands of hair it will dry much faster. Wool also absorbs up to 30% of its own weight in moisture.
•What about softness?
Like shaking out a crunchy line dried towel the more you shake it the more the rough spots are smoothed out. The gentle bouncing of our wool dryer balls against your laundry while it dries keeps everything naturally soft.
•How long will my scents last?
This is a VERY hard question to answer. The amount of time your scents last depends on quite a few things... which scent you choose, how often you use them, how much scent was added to the ball etc. I have heard everything from a month to a year or more. We are trying to do some more research in this area though to give you more of a definitive answer. If you find a scent that you LOVE we do sell all of our fragrance oils on our website so you can stock up at any time.
•How do I rescent my wool dryer balls?
There are 3 basic ways to rescent a dryer ball.
1. Drop the scent on the outside of the ball. This may stain the balls though so if they are pretty you may not want to try this method, most of the time it's just an orange spot. This also increases the chances of oil coming into contact with your laundry so if you use this method I recommend first drying a load of towels or laundry that will not stain. Many people use this method so that they can scent the balls for each load and even change up the scent quickly.
2. Make a hole with an awl or tool and drop or inject the scent into the hole. Look for one of the wool intersections, without breaking the fibers dig a hole into the ball with the awl. Use a dropper to drop your scent into the ball and squeeze the ball back together to cover up the hole.
3. Inject the scent to the inside of the ball. I've found 2 ways to do this, you can use a meat injector from the kitchen dept, but you won't want to reuse this for your chicken dinner that night so get one special just for your dryer balls. The oil comes out fast, so pour in just enough for one ball. Since the hole this creates is a little large try and find a spot where the wool intersects so you will not be breaking any fibers. Or pick up a syringe right here on our site. Inject the scent right into the ball and you're done.
With any of the above methods be sure and put the ball in a baggie or container for at least 24 hours to let the scent soak in. You can use them right away, just be aware that the scent will only last one or two loads. And you want to use around 1-2ml per ball for the best scent throw.
•How long will they last?
From supplier “I have been making Buddha Bunz wool dryer balls for over 6 years now and have customers that still have balls bouncing around as good as new from the beginning. That being said all of my wool dryer balls are made by hand and I can make a mistake or have a ball that comes out wonky and may not last as long as the others for some odd reason.” But I’m general... a LONG TIME!!!
