Those, my friends, are dryer balls! They eliminate the need to use those nasty, chemical-laden dryer sheets. And they actually work! Of course, I would rather hang my clothes outside on the line, but in winter in Alaska, that just isn't going to happen. These are definitely the next best thing! They really do stop 95% of the static electricity, and they can be used over and over again! Gotta love it, especially when used in conjunction with my homemade laundry soap!
