I just crumple up a piece of aluminum foil into a ball and it takes the static out of the clothes! Never have to use fabric softener - clothes are soft and static free,

I read the article and it looks like an easy ad fun project. But I wasn't clear on exactly what is "Felting"
Could you please explain further.

Thanks,
Cah

Editor's Note: Here is a Wikipedia entry on Felt. It is basically when the fibers (wool, in this case) compress and mat together. There are several how to's on felting online if you want to actually make felt.

I keep 3 tennis balls in my dryer at all times. They help keep the clothes fluffy and you don't need fabric softener sheets or even regular fabric softener. I've used the same 3 tennis balls for over a year now, and they still look like new.

I have thought about that, but then realized (1) unless you do a lot of knitting with wool, and have lots of remnants, this would be more expensive than buying them; and (2) do I really want those heavy balls sitting, perhaps on a delicate item that can wrinkle, if I don't get to the dryer right away when it has finished?

Has anyone tried it? Are my concerns valid?

Update: I was given a set of wool dryer balls, and have used them for several years now. They are not heavy, as I expected them to be, and they do very nicely for fluffing the load and keeping it from packing down and wrinkling. It doesn't help a lot with static, though; when I have items that I expect to generate a lot of static, I do throw in a dryer sheet as well.
