LOVE: Woolzies

I'm back with another product that I LOVE.  For the past year and half we've been working towards a more holistic natural lifestyle by eating REAL food and eliminating potentially harmful chemicals from our environment.  I have been making my own laundry detergent for almost two years now, and recently came across Woolzies as an alternative to traditional dryer sheets and fabric softeners.

Woolzies Dryer Balls eliminate the need for traditional fabric softeners which contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to both you and the environment.  Each package contains six handmade wool balls that you use in place of fabric softeners in the dryer.  Woolzies are guaranteed to last for 1,000 loads or your money back!  If you were to do eight loads of laundry/week one box of six Woolzie dryer balls would last you at least 2 years!  That is def worth the money!

I was especially interested in Woolzies for my cloth diapers.  You can not use any fabric softeners on the cloth diapers because they will hinder the absorption abilities of the diaper inserts (not good).  So whenever I take my diapers out of the dryer you can see and hear the sparks fly as you peel them apart from each other.  It is the one thing I dislike about washing the cloth diapers.  The Woolzie balls have significantly decreased the static in my diapers when I take them out of the dryer!  I won't say that it is completely gone (there is still a little bit of static) but it is negligible.  I was so happy and surprised!

In my regular laundry I have not missed my dryer sheets at all.  My clothes come out of the dryer the same as they always do.  Woolzies claims that they cut down drying time by 25% on large loads because of the way the balls bounce around in the dyer to separate the clothes to allow greater airflow through them.  Our dryer is old and awful!  It takes FOREVER to dry a load (I am so EXCITED about our new washer and dryer we bought for our new house) so I honestly can't tell if the balls have reduced drying time or not.

One other quick note about the Woolzies Dryer Balls- the company suggests that you should use eight balls in the dryer for an extra large load.  (They are sold in boxes of 6.)  I did wash an extra large load of towels one time (honestly it was probably more than I should have tried to wash in one load) and I could tell that the extra two balls in the dryer would have been helpful.  It was the one time I noticed static in my regular laundry use with the balls.  So as the company suggests I would agree that you do need eight balls for an extra large load.

Overall, I am in LOVE.  Really.  I love that I am not using any chemicals now in my laundry.  I love that my clothes and especially my diapers come out of the dryer static-free.  And I would love for you to try Woolzies Dyer Balls too!  Enter below for a chance to win!  Or if you can't wait and aren't the gambling type check out their website to purchase some for yourself or learn more about Woolzies.  I hope you're as impressed as I am!
