hometown tour banner



hometown girlLife for Marissa Lou was great. She was a popular senior in high school with great friends and an even greater boyfriend. She was on top of the world. That was until she made the greatest sacrifice of her life.
Daniel and Katie both loved Marissa Lou but neither of them could deny the intensity of their growing affection for one another, no matter how hard they tried to fight it.

Being the selfless person she was, Marissa Lou gave Katie and Daniel her permission to date. Little did she know it would be the first day of a hellish nightmare. One where, in her depression, she falls from grace and gets mixed up in a life she never would have expected.

With a growing addiction she fights to right everything that went so wrong, but will it be too late?

I got a chance to review these Dryer Balls and Soap Berries from Little Lamb at a discounted price.  You can go to Amazon and find all these different sets there.  I will provide links.


The set of 6 Dryer Balls, pictured above, is a great set for lots and lots of drying cycles.  The info with the Soap Berries, pictured below, says using them with the Dryer Balls will leave your clothes soft and fluffed with no static.  Well, it depends on the material but most everything I dried was little to no static.  The items with most static were fleece or polyester blends.  So nothing out of the ordinary.






The Soap Berries, or nuts, are very easy to use.  They are quite strong smelling when first opened, but that dissipates fairly quickly.  They are all natural and can be added to compost after used if you compost.  The small bag is included for use in the wash cycle.  Load it up with a handful of the nuts then smash them a bit.  My oldest son had a great time smacking the bad against the floor for me.  Once you do that, then for a few seconds run it under hot water.  Then the bag of soap nuts can be pulled out with the wash and thrown in the dryer.  Or if you're like me I pull stuff out individually so it's easy to find the bag.  Then I just threw it in with the next load.  The soap nuts are good for 3-5 washes.  Once used up, compost or throw them away and get another handful and start again.

If you're looking for a more natural way to get your laundry done the Soap Nuts and Dryer Balls are a great way to go.  They are affordable and environmentally friendly.  I would certainly recommend them to most everyone.  My clothes just smelled clean and were soft.  I will offer a small warning not to forget a load in the washer because the laundry will end up smelling like the soap nuts!



The pictures above are two alternative sets you may purchase.  Think of these as starter sets or a great baby shower gift.  The one is a 4 pack of just Dryer Balls and the other is 3 Dryer Balls with a small pack of Soap Nuts included.

20% Discount Code: D3KBOOQ4 for any of the products below:
6 Pack Dryer Balls
4 Pack Dryer Balls
3 Pack Dryer Balls with Soap Nuts
1.1lb Soap Berries

And now for the exciting part, put your name in the hat for a chance to win a 6 pack of Dryer Balls and 2 bags of Soap Berries!  Good luck!!
