The other day Bailey and Zara were quite curious as to why I had mini little plastic fish in my tumble dryer. Well, I tried to explain that they help make the laundry more fluffy and they save on electricity, but after about 5 minutes of trying to explain why, I gave up! Then this morning Zara exclaimed with glee "Do you know Mom, they actually work!" And she was right, showing me how her little soft toy "Owlie" looks so much better now this time round, than when he went through the ringer the first time. So now you know - these little dryer balls have Zara (and I suspect Owlie's) stamp of approval.
