She came up with the idea when she became pregnant, wanting to create a healthy home environment for her family.

Later this fall, she’ll be adding to the brand with new products including LooHoo Dryer Gems, Laundry Bags and Wash Bags, to be sold online and at art shows.

“We are anticipating a strong Q4 with great holiday sales,” she said ahead of the launch, which she said would be around Nov. 1.

Dryer Gems, she said, are an all-vegan version of the Dryer Balls “perfect for anyone allergic to wool or who wants to eliminate or reduce animal products in their home.

“The soft, plant-based filling is actual bamboo fibers, while the recycled cotton fabric comes straight from high-end New York City designers, providing a sustainable alternative to typical discards that end up in our landfills.”

She recommends tossing in the dryer gems in with the laundry, possibly with a few sprinkles of essential oil before drying “to infuse a fresh scent.”

While Prince still runs her business from home, finding a production facility remains a long-term goal.
