Every once in a while, the gods give us the greatest gift of all – a joke that writes itself. Yes, when we first saw Nellie’s Dryerballs sitting on the shelf we had to look around for Ashton Kutcher and his Punk’d crew. Could this really be happening? Could there actually be a product with so many delicious double-entendres in its simple name? Yes. A thousand times, yes.
All joking aside, Nellie’s is a fantastic line of environmentally friendly products that actually work (unlike that wind-powered margarita machine). The Dryerballs are two French-tickly rubbery orbs that you toss in the dryer with your soggy garments. They help reduce lint and wrinkles while softening clothes, all without smelling like a creepy teddy bear-scented fabric sheet. But the part that’ll make your inner Al Gore tingle is the fact that they reduce drying time up to 25%, saving electricity without any personal sacrifice whatsoever. Plus, they’re guaranteed to last up to two years.
And to wash your clothes in the first place, we love the simple, natural wonder of Nellie’s Laundry Nuggets. These pre-measured, biodegradable beauts dissolve in hot or cold water without unneeded fragrance or sudsy fillers. They’re perfect for front-loading High Efficiency washing machines, or even more low-tech devices like the washboard and rock down at the creek.
Ain’t nuttin’ greener than that.
Nellie’s Dryerballs 2-pack: $20
