The 100% pure wool natural laundry softener system
We ARE believers! I have seen the error of my ways and vow to never go back. 8) Sometimes we get stuck in a rut out of habit. I have always used dryer sheets but why?? Is there something that is better?? I was given the opportunity to review the Woolzies Dryer Balls which came in a set of 6 XL balls. First off I will tell you about them and then I will tell you how they perform.
The Woolzies Dryer balls are 100% Eco-Friendly. They are pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls that soften your laundry naturally without any of the chemicals of conventional fabric softeners. Unlike the plastic dryer balls, they are PVC free and won’t fall apart or melt on you. Woolzies save time and energy by cutting down on drying time by an average of 25% per load. They also help reduce static and wrinkles. They are also hypo-allergenic and totally safe for people with wool sensitivities as they will not shed onto your laundry. Plus is saves you $$ since they last for 1000’s of loads of laundry.
We have been working to change our ways over the last couple years and become more and more eco-friendly. We used to fill two trashcans a week on a regular basis with our family of 6 but have since changed our ways and typically don’t even fill one any more. We recycle, we use florescent and LED lights in our home, we garden, we can our own food and more. I never thought about changing our dryer sheets. It’s just not something you think of. We were happy with our laundry cleaning system and the products we used left our clothes clean and fresh and static free BUT we were not Eco-friendly using products that were not good for us or our environment plus we were throwing away money every month needlessly. I am VERY pleased to say that we have changed our laundry cleaning system and have been using Woolzie dryer balls for several weeks now on our clothing, towels and bed sheets and we have seen NO CHANGE!!! THAT IS GREAT NEWS!! Like I said we were happy with our system before but we were not being Ec0-friendly and we were using chemicals the take the fire-retardant out of our material and use chemicals we didn’t need. So now we are Eco-friendly and no longer using harmful chemicals and we are still PERFECTLY satisfied with our new laundry cleaning system.
The original purchase may scare you with a box of Woolzies costing $35.00 but if you sit down and figure out how much you would spend on dryer sheets for 1000 loads and how much that would cost you this is a no-brainer PLUS there are no more harmful chemicals being used on your loved ones laundry. The balls come unscented so if you don’t like all the smelly stuff on your clothes they are perfect but even if you do like the smelly stuff it is super simple to scent them with any essential oil of your choosing. Their dryer balls are completely handmade as well. They are not mass produced by machine. Therefore you will notice variations in size, color and texture.
Wondering how they save time and energy? Well, since the Woolzies bounce around in your dryer, they naturally separate and create space between your laundry, thereby allowing the hot dryer air to circulate better and subsequently cutting down on drying time by about 25% in large loads and as much as 35-40% in small loads. This of course saves both time and money for you and energy for the environment.
Why are they better than the plastic or rubber balls? Rubber and plastic balls are made from harsh chemicals including PVCs which are released onto your laundry by the hot dryer air. Not only are these types of dryer balls dangerous to your health, they are toxic to the environment as well. Additionally, the harsh tumbling action of rubber, plastic and tennis balls can damage your dryer’s sensitive electronic sensors. Finally, some of these types of balls may even melt slightly and cause fabric staining.
