I am sure that those of you that have not yet seen or heard of dryer balls are wondering what I am talking about. Or maybe you are having the same reaction my mother did when I gave her a set of plastic ones as a gift. She laughed and thought it was a joke! This is no joke my friends!! If you have heard of dryer balls, do you have some?
Woolzies Dryer Balls are perfect for everyone, especially those looking to reduce the chemicals they use in the laundry. Traditional fabric softeners are full of harsh chemicals. Just think, fabric softener sheets can be used as insect repellent if put in your pockets or for deterring mice and moths when placed inside storage boxes. The insects and mice can detect the chemicals that we so easily allow in our homes and on our clothes that we wear every day.
I have been using dryer balls in our dryer for probably close to 4 years. (or more – I can’t really remember when I started.) First, I started with some cheap hard blue plastic ones. I found some pink plastic ones that had a static control patch on them (these are the ones that I had given to my mom for Christmas one year. you know, the ones she laughed about and thought were a joke.) Needless to say, I inherited them when she didn’t use them. I then heard about wool dryer balls and thought I would try and make my own from wool yarn. I still use the wool ones that I made but they have been modified. (check out my next post for more information about said modifications.) I had been wanting to try some professionally made ones and was very excited for the opportunity to try Woolzies! They really are awesome!

Here is a little from their About Us page:

This set of six handmade pure wool dryer balls are special in several ways. They deliver the same benefits for laundry as conventional fabric softeners WITHOUT all the nasty chemicals. They save everyone a lot of money by eliminating the need to continuously spend on fabric softener liquid and sheets. They cut down on the time it takes to dry a typical load by at least 25% thereby saving everyone even more money and cutting down on fossil fuel usage. Finally, being as that they are handmade in the democratic republic of Nepal, they provide a steady source of income to the desperately needy women of that developing nation.
So smile when you purchase a set of WOOLZIES┬«, because you know you’re helping to make the world a more pleasant place for yourself, your family and future generations!

Here are some of the reasons I love my set of 6 Woolzies:

  • leave my clothes soft fresh and residue free! – The natural tumbling action of the dryer and dryer balls separates the clothes and helps them dry faster and makes the clothes so soft and fluffy! Especially the towels
  • so easy to use – just leave them in the dryer. When I take my clothes out of the dryer, I just throw the dryer balls right back into the dryer so they are ready for next time.
  • provide entrainment for my preschooler and toddler – sometimes a dryer ball or 2 will get trapped in the clean clothes. My girls love to play with them while I fold the rest of the laundry. Then they {sometimes} help me put them back into the dryer so they are ready for the next load.
  • hypoalergenic – Woolzies don’t shed fibers in the dryer so someone allergic to wool can still use them.
  • handmade from fine New Zealand wool – 100% pure wool with no added chemicals or dyes
  • Quiet – They are quiter in the dryer than the plastic ones. More of a thud than a clank. :) Of course, hey are louder than a dryer sheet but not unbearable. My dryer is on the main floor and we rarely shut the door to the laundry room, but also rarely notice too much extra dryer noise.
  • They last a really long time – The Woolzies box and website states they will last through 1,000 loads. I am not sure how many loads I have used them for, but I know they have many more left and I am excited to see how long they actually last!

I am sure there are plenty of other great things about them that I could list, but you can check them out for yourself at Woolzies.com

This is what my Woolzies look like after 2 months+ of use.
