WHY WE DECIDED TO SELL DRYER BALLS

A recent survey showed that the average number of times a garment is worn in the UK is seven! Yes, seven times. The survey also established that some garments are only ever worn once. We were shocked by this and decided to research further.

There are several contributory factors behind this statistic, one of which being that some garments don’t dry well despite using fabric conditioners or drying sheets, neither of which are good for our planet.

DimBull dryer balls are all-natural, they help soften your clothes and save you money by reducing energy consumption. Sustainably manufactured from 100% premium New Zealand wool, these dryer balls soften and fluff clothing, sheets, blankets, towels, jackets, baby clothes and more. Using DimBull dryer balls also prevents heavy items from getting scrunched up and tangled which helps your clothes dry more evenly.

WHY DIMBULL DRYER BALLS ARE THE BEST

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?

We were staggered by the response to DimBull dryer balls and were soon selling thousands every month. This welcome success made us think of how else we could package our dryer balls and integrate them with new products to help overcome other environmental issues. Our first addition was…

ESSENTIAL OILS

100% natural and organic Lavender oil from France to replace the fragrance from chemical softeners.

This proved extremely popular, and we sold out quickly. But our customers told us as much as they love the Lavender oil, they want more choice, so now we’re working on a box set of three fragrances. They’ll be ready this summer, so come back soon for details!

WE DIDN’T STOP THERE!

We thought about how we could adapt this further and realised that the combination of our wool dryer balls and essential oils had many other potential uses. So, after a lot of research with smelly shoes, we thought a great way to reduce the use of another chemical based aerosol product would be to sell…

SHOE FRESHENER KITS

DimBull shoe refresher balls combined with our essential oils soak up sweat and eliminate odour, freshening up your shoes, trainers, or sneakers. They also act as a shoe shaper, so help to keep your trainers or shoes looking new. As a bonus, we also found that they’re particularly effective in freshening up your wardrobe and drawers too!

Miss the fragrance?

If you miss the fragrance you get from chemical-based dryer sheets, just add a few drops of our specially formulated essential oil.

Wait until your laundry is dry, add a few drops to your Dryer Balls, then run the load again on a no heat setting for around ten minutes, this will quickly enhance the fragrance of your clothes as they leave your dryer.

DimBull Dryer Balls

4.8 out of 5.0 stars

Why we chose this product:

Wool dryer balls are natural and made from a renewable resource, which we believe is much better than fabric softeners and dryer sheets which are full of chemicals.

Wool dryer balls reduce drying time and therefore save energy. This is achieved because the constant movement of the balls in the dryer separate laundry items apart and increases the hot air circulation around each item.

Dryer balls soften clothes and linens naturally by tumbling around with the laundry, smoothing out the wrinkles and softening the clothing. Therefore, reducing ironing time, which saves you even more time and money

DIMBULL SHEEP FACE DRYER BALLS

5.0 out of 5.0 stars

Why we chose this product:

Only a few months after the launch of our Dryer Balls, several people started to ask, "Do you sell the ones with a sheep's face on them?"

As we always try to please our customers, we came up with a design that we thought would be aesthetically pleasing and went into production straight away!

The new version still gives you all the benefits of our plain dryer balls, so you will still be using a natural and organic product to help you same time, money, and energy, but the big plus is, you get a cute sheep face on every ball.

The choice is yours.

Why we chose this product :

After seeing the benefits of using wool dryer balls & essential oils in the laundry, we realised that we now had a 100% natural solution to the everyday problem of smelly footwear.

By adding oil to the balls and pushing them into your shoes, not only do they eliminate the odour, but they also help keep your shoes in shape, and depending on the oil you use they can potentially reduce the risk of athlete’s foot.

Natural Bamboo Clothes Pegs

5.0 out of 5.0 stars

Why we chose this product :

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet. It can grow 3 feet in height in 24 hours under appropriate climate conditions. Unlike other woody plants, bamboo reaches maturity after only 3 to 5 years.

Bamboo releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide compared to other plants. Because of these features, bamboo greatly decreases amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and cleans the air.

Our Customers Say

The one with sheep faces on are such a good idea for a present.

I bought these as I had used the plain ones, and I love them. I can see a lot of my girl friends having them for Christmas.

Carol

They do the job

I love that the dryer balls came in a little cotton bag to keep them all together. They are a good price and do the job perfectly.

Amazon Customer

High Quality

Really impressed with these dryer balls – been using for a few months now – at least 2-3 times a week and they are still perfect! I definitely think they cut down on drying time too.

Maddy

I really love this product

Really impressed with my purchase!!! Would highly recommend this product.

Sue

Excellent tumble dryer balls!!

I was not sure whether they work, but they do! The tumble dryer time is reduced & the clothes are softer. Well worth it & much better than the plastic ones.

Kelly Liu

Great product and fantastic value for money

I’m a keen environmentalist, and I don’t like to use chemical softeners. I thought I’d give these dryer balls a go, as they are all natural wool. I love the bag they came in as well, made of natural cotton. It made it feel like I was really treating myself to a luxury item, even though the cost is negligible. It’s been raining on and off for a few weeks now, so the timing was perfect.
I was honestly amazed at how quickly my clothes dried, how soft and fluffy my clothes were, and my towels weren’t like cardboard for the first time ever!
To be able to save money because of the shorter drying time, whilst being eco friendly is a huge bonus for me. I would highly recommend them. They will last for ages!
