Laundry Static Overload? Here’s Why!

What Causes Static

& How to Reduce It

Ever had your laundry come out with too much static? Here are three common reasons & how to solve the problem:
You're Over-Drying
Laundry that is completely dry with no moisture in the fabric can cause electricity to cling onto the piece of clothing. As a result, the over-dried laundry can have too much static when taken out of the dryer, so reducing the drying time on your load will solve this issue. In fact, Nellie’s Lamby Dryerballs are specifically designed to shorten your drying time.
You're Using Too Much Detergent
With the adhesive texture of detergent, excess detergent can also cause too much electricity to stick your laundry fabrics. Using less detergent will save you from static, and will save you money too! Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Nuggets are the perfect answer to this, with the convenience of a pre-measured nugget you will never over-measure detergent again.
You're Not Separating Fabrics in the Dryer
Synthetic fabrics such as polyester or nylon cause static clothing since they attract electricity more than other materials. Separate your natural from synthetic fabrics to get rid of static transfer.
Nellie's Laundry Nuggets
Overall, dryer balls are a great way to cut down on your drying time and reduce the amount of energy being consumed in your home. So, the next time you do laundry, you can feel great about helping the environment and saving some money on your energy bill too!

Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Nuggets Explained

Posted on

Ever wished you could measure the perfect amount of laundry soap every time you put a load on? Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Nuggets are the solution. Measured out into one-load packets, all you have to do is throw a laundry nugget in with your clothes and turn on the washing machine.

Laundry Nugget Basics
The casing on the Laundry Nuggets is made of MonoSol® film and dissolves in water, therefore there’s no need to “open” the nugget before throwing it in the wash. It’ll dissolve as your clothes are washed, leaving you with fresh, clean laundry.
Laundry Nuggets are hassle and mess free, great for those of us who don’t have a lot of time to fuss over the laundry – from busy moms to bachelors tied up with work. Sometimes the nuggets have been shipped through freezing conditions and harden. If this happens to your Laundry Nuggets, you can roll the nugget between your fingertips to soften it before placing it in the drawer or drum of your machine.
