• Dryer balls: We are so impressed with the effectiveness of our PVC-free dryer balls. We know they work—our dryer balls went missing for a few loads of laundry. Those loads took twice as long to dry and were electrically charged with lots of static—proof enough in our book that dryer balls do the trick. In the event that you do not want to use dryer balls, try a couple of tennis balls or even these handmade wool dryer balls.
• Adding about 3/4 cup of vinegar (or baking soda) to the wash is a surefire way to eliminate the need for fabric softener sheets in the dryer. We've found that our sheets and jeans are noticeably fresher with a little white vinegar added in the wash. And our pillowcases? Much softer.
Any other tips for greening your drying routine (other than hanging your wash to dry, of course)? Be sure to share your favorites.
