WHY YOU NEED DO WOOL DRYER BALLS TO DRY YOUR CLOTHES

Many of us find dry balls strange to use; we see others use them, but never get to use them ourselves. Why can’t I just dry my clothes on the line? Logical, right? However, we can’t just limit our minds to just one procedure. There are other ways we can dry our clothes easily. Besides, what if it decides to rain all through the day… how would you dry your clothes? There is the washer dryer of course. But, what if there is a way you can improve the drying process of your clothes, would you opt for it? For this reason, we have the dryer balls (no-pun-intended). But, do they work? For the record, wool dryer balls are 100% effective. They can improve the drying time of your clothes, get rid of static, and they are made from natural materials.

How Do Wool Dryer Balls Improve Drying Time?

Wool dryer balls play a very important role in drying your clothes in a short time. Once you have placed the balls along with your washed clothes in the dryer and turn it on, the balls get in-between your clothes and help separate them as they tumble. As this process goes on, air easily circulates within the dryer, allowing moisture to quickly evaporate from your clothes. Using this product can save you 20% in drying time, thereby saving you energy and cost.

Are Wool Dryer Balls Effective In Preventing Static In Clothes?

Do wool dryer balls work in eliminating static in clothes and towels? Yes, they do. Static results from drying clothes that gather electric charge due to different clothes gliding against one another. This problem is commonly faced by individuals that place their clothes in tumble-dryers. The good news is that static clothing can be eliminated by using dryer balls. Here is an experiment for you to try out. Get your washed clothes out, separate them into two portions, place one portion without dryer balls in the tumble-dryer and afterwards place in a separate laundry basket. Put the second portion, this time with dryer balls, in the dryer and place them in another laundry basket. Check out both clothe sections and note the portion with static. You will obviously find static in the clothes without dryer balls, and none in the other portion.

Are Wool Dryer Balls Better Than Dryer Sheets And Plastic Dryer Balls?

When comparing wool dryer balls to dryer sheets, it is glaring which of them is more effective and safe – the wool dryer balls, obviously. Dryer sheets are mostly filled with perfumes and chemicals which makes them not safe in drying your clothes. Besides, wool dryer balls have a faster drying time than dryer sheets. Wool dryer balls make less noise than plastic dryer balls that are well-known for their clattering noise. Additionally, they are made from natural products, which makes them safe to use.

What To Do While Purchasing Wool Dryer Balls

Wool dryer balls are worth the try. Also, they come in different qualities, so you need to check out customers’ reviews about the product before making a purchase. Personally, wool dryer balls by Tru Earth are 100% organic and effective in leaving your clothes dry and fresh. These dryer balls contain no chemicals or synthetics as they are made from sheep wool.

ABOUT BENEE
From her hometown in Auckland, New Zealand, breakthrough popstar Stella Bennett, aka BENEE, remains unphased, unchanged and almost impervious to the cataclysmic success coming her way since releasing her debut EP, FIRE ON MARZZ, last summer. Already her tale is one of eye-watering statistics and achievements: close to ten million TikTok videos made to her latest single “Supalonely” featuring Gus Dapperton, hundreds of millions of streaming numbers, the most added song on U.S. Top 40 radio and a collection of platinum records in her home country. Her story is international and expanding on the hour, across modern and traditional platforms. Her audience seems endless. BENEE, however, remains easygoing, centered and—most importantly—herself.

Fashion Wear for Women During Rainy Days

During rainy days functionality tends to be valued above fashionability. We choose clothes that can keep us dry, never mind that we are not happy with the way we look. This should not be the case especially now that there are specialty companies that are combining fashion sense with the basic function of keeping us dry. 

Balancing Fashion and Function

Staying dry during rainy days, usually means a set of an umbrella, boots, waterproof pants, and rain jackets. Functionality balanced by fashion is sought by many and yet most people simply settle for heavy-duty rainwear that is reliable in a downpour.

There are many considerations for choosing rainwear since lightweight, water-resistant clothes can not really hold up to strong rain. On the other hand, heavy-duty waterproof rainwear tends to lack breathability which means that sweat is trapped under the layers of our clothes. Choosing fashionable rain jackets require us to discern the style we would like to wear and also whether the materials are able to answer our different needs. During rainy days, it is our rain jackets that immediately attract the eye, so it is important to find one that is a good balance of function and fashion.

Standing Out on a Rainy Day

During a gray and rainy day, you may choose to stand out. Perhaps taking a walk with a rainbow-colored umbrella or wearing that bright yellow rain jacket with confidence. In this way, instead of blending in, you become a beacon of positivity for those people who are feeling their spirits dampen with the rains.

Staying Warm With Different Layers

One good tip for women who wish to balance fashion and function during rainy days is to try wearing leggings. Even if you wear a skirt over your leggings or stockings you will have an extra layer to keep you warm. The great thing about synthetic or nylon leggings is that they are breathable and dry very quickly should they get wet. Staying warm and comfortable on a rainy day by using different layers of light clothing allows you to be versatile. Your comfort can very well make you a trendsetter.

Rocking Out in the Rain With Your Boots

Keeping your feet dry is very important on a rainy day because wet feet will rob you of your comfort until you get home to dry them. Women have been finding the balance of fashion and function by embracing heavy-duty boots to keep their feet dry, but also as a counterpoint to more feminine colors or clothes. Some women wear combat boots or leather boots proudly even as they mix and match the rest of their outfits.

Mixing and Matching to Express Your Creativity

For some people, being fashionable feels difficult to achieve when the weather is dark and wet. But what is fashion anyway if not current trends in a community? When it is rainy, the need to stay dry is everybody’s priority. And yet people still find ways to stand out and be noticed. Human creativity is limitless and the small variations people do with what they wear is what feeds fashion trends. 

After the basic needs are met, that is when the creativity of people begins to be expressed. With so many companies now offering a myriad of clothes that balance function and fashion, going out on a rainy day becomes an opportunity to express one’s self and stand out even with raindrops falling to the ground.

Fashion Nova × FTC

Online fashion retailer Fashion Nova will pay $9.3 million to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that it didn’t properly notify consumers and give them the chance to cancel their orders when it failed to ship merchandise in a timely manner, and that it illegally used gift cards to compensate consumers for unshipped merchandise instead of providing refunds.

Under the terms of Fashion Nova’s proposed settlement with the FTC, the money will be used to refund consumers who were harmed by the company’s violations.

The FTC’s complaint against Fashion Nova alleges that it violated the agency’s Mail, Internet, Or Telephone Order Merchandise Rule (the Mail Order Rule), which applies to merchandise sold to consumers online, by mail, or by phone.

“The same rules that we have enforced for nearly 50 years against catalogers and other mail-order companies also apply to online sellers,” said Andrew Smith, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection.  “Online retailers need to know that our Mail Order Rule requires them to notify customers in the event of shipping delays and offer the right to cancel with a full refund—not just a gift card or a store credit.”

According to the complaint, Fashion Nova violated the Rule in two ways. First, the company made clear promises to consumers for years that they offer fast shipping of their products. This includes using phrases like “Fast Shipping,” “2-Day Shipping,” and “Expect Your Items Quick!” In fact, the company regularly failed to meet its shipping promises to consumers, and failed to meet the Mail Order Rule’s requirement that consumers be notified of shipping delays and given the chance to cancel orders and receive prompt refunds.

The complaint also alleges that Fashion Nova at times failed to refund consumers for the items that it did not ship. Instead, it was the company’s policy to issue gift cards, which are not considered refunds under the Mail Order Rule. The company also failed to cancel orders and provide refunds when it did not offer consumers delay option notices.

Under the terms of the proposed settlement, Fashion Nova will be required to pay $9.3 million to be used to refund consumers who were harmed by the company’s violations of the Mail Order Rule. Of that, $7.04 million will be sent to the FTC for use in refunding consumers and $2.26 million must be refunded directly by the company to consumers. Consumers who received gift cards instead of refunds when the company violated the Mail Order Rule will be eligible for refunds under the settlement.

The settlement also prohibits Fashion Nova from any further violations of the Mail Order Rule, and requires the company to ship ordered merchandise within one day of receipt of an order when the company doesn’t specify a shipping date.

The Commission vote authorizing the staff to file the complaint and proposed stipulated order was 5-0. The FTC filed the complaint and final judgment in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

NOTE: The Commission files a complaint when it has “reason to believe” that the named defendants are violating or are about to violate the law and it appears to the Commission that a proceeding is in the public interest. Stipulated orders have the force of law when approved and signed by the District Court judge.

The Federal Trade Commission works to promote competition, and protect and educate consumers. You can learn more about consumer topics and file a consumer complaint online or by calling 1-877-FTC-HELP (382-4357).
