Norwex Dryer Balls:

A Natural Choice for Fresh, Soft Laundry Without Fabric Softener


If you’re on a quest for softer, fresher clothes without the drawbacks of traditional fabric softeners, it’s time to meet your laundry’s new best friend —Norwex Dryer Balls. Let’s dive into why these little woolen wonders are a game-changer for your laundry routine and why you might want to bid farewell to fabric softeners.

The Downside of Fabric Softeners

Chemical Overload:

Traditional fabric softeners often contain a cocktail of synthetic chemicals and fragrances that can be harsh on sensitive skin and may contribute to respiratory issues. The fibers they coat lay on your skin all day and night, giving way to absorption into your pores, meaning these chemicals have a direct line to your bloodstream.

Environmental Impact:

Many fabric softeners are packed with chemicals that are not only released into your laundry but also into the environment during the washing and drying process, contributing to air, water and waste pollution.

Residue Buildup:

Fabric softeners can leave a waxy residue on your clothes and washing machine, reducing the absorbency of towels and affecting the performance of your appliances over time. They can also coat the inside of the dryer vent and hose that exits the home. This can become a fire hazard.


Talk about a waste of money! The average cost of dryer sheets is about $50 over two years, for a family that does 8-10 loads of laundry a week. Five people live in my house. We do way more laundry than that. I’m so thankful softeners and dryer sheets aren’t a part of my family’s budget!

The Upside of Dryer Balls

Natural Softening:

Norwex Dryer Balls provide a natural and eco-friendly way to soften your laundry without relying on harsh chemicals. Made from 100% New Zealand wool, they are gentle on fabrics and skin.

Reduced Drying Time:

These woolen wonders aren’t just about softness. They also help reduce drying time by creating space between clothes, improving airflow and saving energy in the process.

Long-Lasting Performance:

Norwex Dryer Balls are built to last for hundreds of loads, making them a cost-effective and sustainable alternative to disposable fabric softener sheets. Ours have a 2-year warranty, but I’ve had many for FIVE years!


Dryer balls are made of wool, which is naturally biodegradable. Wool is made from the same protein as human hair, and the matter can be broken down micro-organisms in water and soil. Zero waste!

Why Are Fabric Softeners & Dryer Sheets Bad for Us?

Fragrance Chemicals:
  • Phthalates: Most fabric softeners and dryer sheets contain synthetic fragrances that often include phthalates. Phthalates have been associated with hormonal disruption and adverse effects on reproductive health.
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): These fragrances can release VOCs into the air, contributing to indoor air pollution. Long-term exposure to VOCs can lead to respiratory issues and other health concerns.
Chemical Residues on Clothes:
  • Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (Quats): These antimicrobial agents are commonly found in dryer sheets and can leave a residue on clothing. Prolonged exposure to quats may cause skin irritation and pose health risks, especially for individuals with sensitive skin.
Airborne Chemicals: 
  • Airborne Pollution: When heated in the dryer, dryer sheets release chemicals into the air. Inhaling these chemicals may cause respiratory irritation, especially in individuals with asthma or other respiratory conditions. Have you ever walked by a house and knew they were doing laundry from the outside? This isn’t a good thing!
Environmental Impact:
  • Non-Biodegradable Components: The chemicals in fabric softeners and dryer sheets can be environmentally persistent and may contribute to water pollution when washed down the drain. Additionally, the plastic containers used for fabric softeners contribute to waste. The disposal of used dryer sheets adds to the overall environmental impact of household waste.
Potential for Fire Hazards:
  • Combustible Ingredients: Some dryer sheets contain flammable substances, posing a potential fire hazard if used improperly or in excess.
Limited Ingredient Transparency:
  • Trade Secret Formulations: Manufacturers are not required to disclose the specific ingredients used in fragrance formulations, as they are often considered trade secrets. This lack of transparency makes it challenging for consumers to make informed choices about the products they use.

Why Choose the Norwex Fluff & Tumble Dryer Balls?

How to Use Norwex Dryer Balls

It’s simple! Toss three (or more) Norwex Dryer Balls into your dryer with your laundry and let them work their magic. For an extra burst of freshness, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the balls before each use.


The more dryer balls you have in the dryer, the most spaces there will be for hot air to get into, which will further divide your drying time!
