  1. Rita: How so you use the Dawn/Hydrogen Peroxide in your laundry? Do you add it to the wash load or do you spray it on an article of clothing. Also, what other ways do you use it? Thank you for all your wonderful ideas. I love it. Best wishes.

    1. Beth, I put it in a spray bottle and spray it on any spots that I have in my laundry. You can also spray it on all of your collars. This spray is also wonderful for any stains on your carpet, drapes, pillows, or any textiles! (test a spot first). I have also used it on my tile floor! The peroxide is a good disinfectant. These are a few of the ways that I have used this. As you can see, I am pretty sold on this product! :)

  2. I just made some wool dryer balls, and my husband insisted I was doing it wrong! He thinks I should wash and then dry repeated four times; however, your instructions say to wash 4 times and then dry 4 times. How long should they be dried each time?

    Thanks for your fun ideas!

    1. Veneese, I washed the wool dryer balls 4 times and dried them 4 times, but the main thing you want to do is felt the wool. In other words, you want to shrink the wool and make it more solid. Heat is the best thing to do that. I just dried them in the dryer until they were dry. I don’t know how long the cycle was, because my dryer just stops when the load is done. I love my wool dryer balls and I hope that you will too!
