Turkey Tracks: Wool Dryer Balls and Cotton Handkerchiefs

Wool Dryer Balls and Cotton Handkerchiefs

Here’s a picture of the wool dryer balls that live in my dryer year round:


And, of the additional handkerchiefs I tuck into a pocket of my pants instead of using a paper product.

The wool dryer balls replace any chemical you’ve been using to “soften” clothes.  These balls never wear out.  They knock lint off our clothes and make everything in the dryer soft.  They also facilate drying so that your clothes dry faster.


I love the handkerchiefs, too.  Once they’ve been washed a few times, they are soft against your skin.  They are sustainable and sturdier than paper products.

  1. we use handkerchiefs, too. And a friend going thru chemo, which apparently can leave you with very sensitive eyes, was told that tissues also can give off tiny shreds which can end up in your eyes. boo!
