Product Review: Nellie’s Dryer Balls PVC Free

Funny how once you start thinking about where products come from and why you even use them that you start to make changes. For the longest time my laundry routine was: Tide, Downie softener and Bounce dryer sheets. Not once did I think about the evil company Proctor and Gamble is, because they test on animals – they drop chemicals right into the eyes of rabbits. This makes me beyond angry.

Nor did I even question Bounce. Did you know there’s gelatin in dryer sheets. Yes, that is pretty nasty if you think about it. Now I use an eco friendly laundry liquid and I measure to the correct line instead of just filling the cup lid. It makes a difference when you use products correctly and it’s amazing how the product lasts that way.

I’ve replaced the dryer sheets with Nellie’s Dryer Balls – PVC free.

Until you open the package, you don’t realize the balls have a place in them for a scent stick. We haven’t bothered, but if I find them by chance I might try them.

I’ve tried dollar store dryer balls before, the blue round ones with small nubs, but they just kept the static away. Nellie’s dryer balls PVC free actually make clothes softer. I was very impressed. Right away I could tell the difference and I really felt like I was in an over dramatic laundry commercial. I pulled a shirt out from the dryer, held it to my face, smelled it, felt the softness and smiled. Yes, I like laundry a little more these days. I’m sure no one enjoys the folding part.

Glad I bought this product over continuously buying dryer sheets and having my clothes tumble in beef fat. Ugh. I’d take this any day.

  1. I had no idea about Bounce! Gross! Thank you for the tips!

      Who would have known about Bounce or any dryer sheet having gelatin. I mean, it’s not really something you think about. I am glad I made the switch. :)

  2. Ooh, those look great! The vegan anti-static sheets I have now do nothing for softness and, really, not that much for static. I’ll have to look into these – thanks!

  3. I’ve been considering these for a while, but I think you’ve pushed me closer to buying them.

  4. This sounds like a great product. I don’t use fabric softener at all because I find the fragrances vomit inducing. What kind of scent does the dryer ball have? I can do natural lavender and lemon scents. I currently have Nellie’s oxygen brightener powder and it’s great. Comes in a cute vintage tin too.
