There was, of course, the usual set of replys "Oh I'm so sorry this has happened to you". But there was one post that stood out amongst the rest, the poster suggested that she purchase some handmade felted dryer balls for her neighbor, and of course she just happened to have some in her shop. I was intrigued, felted dryer balls? Never heard of such a thing. This lead me to look them up on Etsy only to find a very wide variety of the item, some big, some small, some expensive, some cheap. There was even a lady who raised her own sheep and made dryer balls from the wool.
I searched even futher to try and figure out why these would be better to use than regular dryer sheets. There is a large amount of information on the subject but I went with the first listing I found (click here). Hmm, not only are they a good idea, but here was the instructions to make your own. That lead me to a knitting shop. Asked the store owner if she had any leftover balls of wool, that she would sell me cheap. I got 4 balls (only needed 2) at 50% off.
So here is the results.......
They may not be as pretty as the ones on the Internet, but they should work just the same. I'll let you know the results.
