Recharge Your Dryer Balls

Recharge Your Dryer Balls

Are your clothes not drying as quickly as they used to? Do your dryer balls seem less effective than before? It might be time to recharge them! Dryer balls are a great eco-friendly alternative to chemical-laden dryer sheets, but like any laundry accessory, they can lose their effectiveness over time. In this article, we'll explore some simple methods to recharge your dryer balls and get them working like new again.

Method 1: Sun-Dry

One of the easiest ways to recharge your dryer balls is by exposing them to sunlight. Sun-drying helps to eliminate any moisture or odors that may have built up over time. Simply place your dryer balls in a sunny spot, like your windowsill or outdoor clothesline, for a few hours. Let the sun work its magic, and you'll find that your dryer balls are refreshed and ready to go.

Method 2: Re-scent

If you want to add a pleasant scent to your laundry while recharging your dryer balls, scent oils are a fantastic option. Just add a few drops of our re-scent oil directly onto the dryer balls. Toss them in the dryer on a low heat setting for about 10 minutes. The heat will help the essential oils penetrate the dryer balls, leaving your clothes smelling fresh and clean.

All Nature's Nook Homebody Laundy Refill kits come with a complementary vial of oil.

Method 3: Refreshing Spritz

Another way to recharge your dryer balls is by using a refreshing spritz. We like to use the Nature's Nook Linen Spray. Lightly spritz the dryer balls until they are slightly damp, then place them in the dryer on a low heat setting for about 15 minutes.

In addition to the Linen Spray, a spritz of White Vinegar is a super effective way to get rid of any pesky static.  

Method 4: Full Wash

Also try washing your dryer balls directly in your washing machine. Our Nature's Nook dryer balls come with a recharge linen bag perfect for tossing into the washing machine. Be sure to wash on gentle using hot water. Dry in the dryer on a normal cycle and they are refreshed and ready to use.

By recharging your dryer balls regularly, you can extend their lifespan and ensure they continue to provide maximum benefits.
