My New Colorful Dryer Balls

I’m usually pretty boring when it comes to my dryer balls. Neutrals and more neutrals are the words used to describe them. One day one of my friends said, “why don’t you make them more colorful? They will be easier to find among the clothes and be more fun to look at.” I took her advice and this is the result. What do you think? Dryer balls are a wonderful alternative to the chemically laden dryer sheets and fabric softener and they are 100% eco-friendly. So as long as you don’t have an allergy to wool, you should definitely give them a try. Cuts down on drying time too! Up in my Etsy store soon! xoTracey

Easy to make and easy to eat, they take only minutes to make. Just add 2/3 cup of almonds, 2/3 cups of pecans, 1 cup of dates, 2 tbsp of hemp powder, 2 tbsp of chia seeds, 1 tbsp of flax powder, 1 tbsp of cacao powder and 1 tbsp of coconut oil into your food processor and blend until you can clump the mixture together in your hand. If it’s not sticky enough to hold together, add another date or two. Roll into balls and then stick into the fridge. My husband eats these when he cycles and just loves them. I eat them anytime and I love them too! Check …
