Woolzies Dryer Balls Review and Giveaway

Before doing this review I had absolutely no idea what dryer balls really were. I had heard other people talk about them on Facebook and in forums, but in my mind they were these tiny things you put in your dryer. Well I was wrong, go figure. 




So, if you are like I was and are unenlightened in the wool dryer ball department, let me illuminate your mind! They are awesome!! >.< I've been using them for a couple weeks now and I have definitely noticed a difference in the time it takes to dry a load of laundry, as well as the lack of static electricity. 




Normally to dry a load of cloth diapers I put the dryer on the 80 minute setting. Any of the other regular cotton settings weren't long enough, the inserts would still be damp. Now that I'm using the dryer balls though, I can dry a load of cloth diapers in literally half that time! 

They are especially great for de-wrinkling shirts, as I learned the other day when my husbands only clean work shirt was crumpled up in a pile of clean clothes! I popped it in the dryer with my Woolzies dryer balls and a couple clean, wet cloth wipes, in about 3-5 minutes all the wrinkles were GONE. Unbelievable! 




So now that I have them, I have no idea how I lived without them! The box they come in has some tips on using them, and apparently you can add drops of essential oils to the wool balls to make your laundry smell nice! Cool! My clothes are softer, have no static, and dry faster!

What else is amazing about Woolzies dryer balls? They are 100% handmade in New Zealand and extremely environmentally friendly. These dryer balls will last you up to a year or 500 loads. They act like fabric sheets, so you'll be saving money by not having to buy new fabric sheets for a year! Plus, they contain no harmful chemicals that can be found in fabric softeners and sheets, as well as plastic dryer balls, making them ideal for families with sensitive skin. Even if you have a wool allergy you can still use Woolzies!
