Woolzies Dryer Ball Review

Woolzies Dryer Balls!

You have probably seen these around the web. Wool Dryer balls. I had seen them too. Well I got the chance to give them a *spin* for myself. I was sent a set of Woolzies to use, abuse and review. I gotta say, I do like them.

Woolzies have numerous benefits. Number one among them for me is that they are 100% natural. One of the reasons I quite using dryer sheets is because of the chemicals that would get deposited on my clothes as well as the lint screen in my dryer. The film left behind is nearly invisible until you run water over the screen and you watch it puddle instead of running through! That film blocks the air from moving through the screen too and creates a fire hazard. 

So in addition to being 100% natural, they claim to reduce drying time which saves energy. This did prove true for me most of the time. I noticed it immediately with jeans and towels. Those are two loads I usually have to run twice to get them all the way dry or else they get a musty mildew smell.. you know that smell.. I call it the Funky Old Laundry Smell. With Woolzies, those loads were one run and done! No more FOLS! And while static wasn't a huge problem for me (even with a laundry room that is mostly carpet), I do hear my laundry crackle with it once in awhile. I have not noticed any since using Woolzies. About the only thing we noticed is that we could hear them getting tossed around, kind of like when a tennis shoe is in the dryer... but this sound isn't like a big shoe. More like a kid's shoe... or a tiny elf's shoe! It just isn't a noise that is so distracting that it bothers us. 

Some other benefits and good points about Woolzies are:
* Helps eliminate wrinkles (less ironing! YEA!!)
* Safe for people with wool sensitivities
* Hypoallergenic
* Handmade from Fine New Zealand Wool

I can truly say I like this product and it is something I will mention to family and friends looking for alternatives in their laundry routines. 

Disclosure: I received a free product to facilitate this review, but the opinion and thoughts on this product are purely mine. Your opinion may differ as may your experience with the product. I used my Whirlpool Duet HE dryer with this product. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
