Let’s see what’s in my August 2021 MightyFix!
Everything was shipped in a small brown box with a Mighty Fix sticker on the end.
A peek inside!
A 2-sided product card revealed my featured item for August — a set of Dryer Balls. The card stated that my new dryer balls are a great alternative to standard dryer sheets, which can emit up to 8 hazardous air pollutants. The sheets pollute your indoor air by causing your dryer to vent air that would fail a car emissions test. Not cool! (Or clean.)
Another view of the balls… (Dryer balls are not exactly the most photogenic lil’ things… 😉 )
Each ball measures roughly 3 inches in diameter and is made of 100% premium New Zealand wool.
Not only are they a more eco-friendly alternative to dryer sheets, but they also reduce drying time by about 25% — saving you money on electricity as well! Plus, unlike the single-use sheets, these can last for thousands of loads. When it’s time to replace them (I’m not sure when you would?), they’re naturally biodegradable too!
Here are a few helpful tips on using dryer balls:
- Since they reduce drying time, you may want to switch to no heat or low heat settings to conserve energy, prevent static, and prolong the life of your clothes & fabrics.
- For a light natural scent, add a few drops of lavender, lemon or orange pure undiluted essential oils to the balls and toss in! (Let the essential oils soak into the balls for at least 10 minutes before adding them to a low heat dryer.)
- If you have static, fasten 3 large safety pins to some old socks (or a washcloth) and keep those in the dryer as well (the metal helps break up static bonds).
I’m really happy with my August 2021 MightyFix shipment! I actually stopped using dryer sheets a few months ago due to concerns over their “ingredients”, so my new set of dryer balls was a welcome alternative. I’ve already tried them out, and I must say my load of bulky towels did dry a lot faster. Woo! 😀 — Remember, for a limited time you can score your first box for only $3!
