I have been lucky enough to be given a set of Woolzies dryer balls to try out and review. They have also provided a set for a giveaway for one of my lucky readers.
So what are Woolzies dryer balls you may be asking? Here is what the company has to say about them.
“Woolzies 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.”
If anyone remembers from my previous post on laundry savings. I was already using plastic dryer balls to save money and avoid dryer sheets. So trying out these wool dryer balls fit perfectly with my current routine.
I was able to try them out right away as there’s always a load of laundry to be done in our home.
I tossed the Woolzies into the first load I had and started the dryer. The first thing I noticed was the sound. I could not believe that there was no banging coming from the dryer. After years of using plastic dryer balls I had gotten use to the banging every time the dryer was on. It was a very pleasant surprise that the Woolzies produced no extra noise. Every load that I have done has been the exact same no noise. I must say that this is my favorite part about these new dryer balls. We are able to sit in our family room without the constant bang, bang, bang of the dryer balls. That is where I found that these dryer balls stand out above the rest.
The most important job (in my mind) that dryer balls do is remove static cling. These Woolzie dryer balls do a great job at that. I have used them on every load I do; clothing, towels, sheets and blankets; I have not had a problem with any static cling. My towels and blankets came out nice and fluffy too!
For me these are the important parts of using the dryer balls. I could go on about how they are great for the environment (made of natural wool, and no throwing out dryer sheets), great for your wallet (buy them once use them for years) and how they cut down on drying time (however I didn’t get out a watch and time the difference 😉 ) If you want to learn more about this great product you can find Woolzie’s FAQs here.
