We received Woozies Dryer Balls in exchange for this review. All opinions and our love for laundry remain our own.
If you’re like me, the dryer sheet of choice is a popular brand, chemical-laden and “disposable”. I understand that their convenience contributes to the landfill. I’m also aware that the cost of these dryer sheets really adds up. So when I heard about natural wool dryer balls, I thought, “What have I got to lose?”
Natural dryer balls offer so much more than traditional dryer sheets. Dryer balls are not filled with chemicals nor artificial fragrance. Wool dryer balls like Woolzies are a superior alternative and boast some mighty awesome qualities including natural softening, static reduction, the ability to absorb toxins, odors and reduce drying time by 10-25 percent. They are environmentally friendly and can be used over and over.
I read all that as Shorter drying time is not only easier on fabrics but it saves energy, which means lower energy bills. It also means I would be spending less time doing laundry!
Woolzies Dryer Balls soften laundry naturally: no chemicals and no PVC
Our laundry basket is always full. I try to maximize our budget by doing full loads, washing on cold as much as possible. I’m also saving with pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls that soften laundry naturally without the chemicals.
Woolzies are PVC free and will not fall apart nor do they melt in the dryer. They reduce drying time significantly, saving me money by allowing me to run my dryer less.
Woolzies come six dryer balls to a pack. They look like something you’d see in a decorative basket at a high-end home furnishings store. Each of the dryer balls is hand-made and all are all natural and have no artificial smell or residue.
They are perfect for sensitive skin.
The New Zealand wool is turned into balls in Nepal, where work is a source of income for many women to be able to provide for their family.
The balls vary slightly in size, shape, color, and texture. This happens because they are handmade with love.
Reduce drying time by 10-25% with Woolzies Dryer Balls!
These dryer balls are not complicated to use.
Simply toss all six wool balls into your dryer with your load of laundry.
Close the door and let them do their thing.
They actually fluff the clothing.
The gentle friction during the tumbling action in the dryer softens clothing.
Dryer time is reduced in the dryer by separating and creating space between laundry allowing hot air to circulate better.
Rather than my typical 30-minutes of drying in the dryer, I returned and opened the dryer door 15-minutes in. My clothes were completely dry and static-free. They were also incredibly soft as if they’d been tumbling with fabric softener and my chemical-laden dryer sheet.
I retrieved the balls then repeated the experiment with the next load.
Again, in awe at how quickly the clothes were drying, how incredibly soft they were and just how little time I was doing laundry.
Because Woolzies are hypoallergenic they are safe to use for baby laundry. They are a great addition to a load of cloth diapers.
Woolzies are available online through the Woolzie website and some retailers.
Add a few drops of pure essential oil to your Woolzies Wool Dryer Balls for scented laundry!
Woolzies are unscented. If you prefer scented laundry, just add a few drops of pure essential oil on one or all the dryer balls for a scent you love!
Whether you are looking to save money or find a more natural way to soften and dry your laundry, Woolzies Dryer Balls are a great alternative to dryer sheets.
The Bottom Line on Woolzies Wool Dryer Balls:
I’m giving up my chemical-laden dryer sheets. Woolzies Wool Dryer Balls mean no sacrifice, no discomfort, and huge financial savings — because at $25.99, these woold dryer balls cost as much as I spend three boxes of my now former favorite dryer sheets.
The difference is that where that box gets me through 244 loads, Woolzies wool dryer balls promise more than 1,000 loads—that’s almost five years’ worth of laundry! They cut drying time by two-thirds, which means not only am I spending less time doing laundry. I’m saving a bundle on my energy bill.
