If you know me or have read any of my previous blog posts you know that I am ALL about eliminating unnecessary chemicals from my families life…I actively am doing my best to rid of the nasties, so when I heard about Woolzies Dryer Balls I knew I had to try them. What are Woolzies Dryer Balls you ask, and why will they eliminate yucky chemicals from our lives? Read on dear friends!
Q: What are WOOLZIES and how do they benefit me and the environment?
A: Regular fabric softeners, both in liquid and sheet form, contain numerous harsh chemicals which are toxic to the environment and even more dangerous to many people who have serious allergic reactions to them. The elderly, ailing and small children can suffer from a variety of negative symptoms which are really just allergic reactions to the harsh chemicals contained in these commercial fabric softening products.
Additionally, because 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.
The 3 pack of WOOLZIES dryer balls are enough for a small load.
The 6 pack of WOOLZIES dryer balls are enough for a large load.
If you are drying an extra large load, we recommend using 8 dryer balls.
Though I do line dry the vast majority of my clothing, I do dry our jeans, pjs, towels, and various misc. items that I wash. We have been using the dryer balls for several weeks now, and I have to say I am VERY impressed. They leave our clothing super duper soft and best of all in my opinion, STATIC FREE! ( I seriously hate static ) And like the box says they cause absolutely no allergic reaction to those who have allergies to wool ( my daughter ), she has experienced no itches or changes at all! They do claim to be completely noiseless, and in our dryer that is not 100 percent accurate, but the noise is not offensive, and after a few mins I do not notice them at all…however, the first night I used them I kept thinking someone was at the door 😉 But even with the teeny bit of noise its a super small price to pay for soft, static free, & most importantly CHEMICAL FREE clothing! I love these and plan to purchase even more once they are worn out after my 1,000 or more loads. In closing if you are looking to go chemical free, or just want super soft clothing but have allergies to dryer sheets or fabric softeners Woolzies are for you…you seriously will not regret this purchase!
DID YOU KNOW:
“1. Most commercial dryer liquids and sheets contain chemicals that destroy the fire retardant qualities in children’s and adult’s clothing and reduce the absorbancy of towels!
2. You can reduce static cling even more by simply rolling up a piece of plain kitchen aluminum foil into the size of one of the Woolzies balls and placing it in the dryer together with the 6 Woolzies dryer balls.
3. The secret to heavenly scented laundry:
After the laundry is dry, take out 2 of the Woolzies balls and apply desired amount of pure essential oil to each ball. Toss the 2 back into the dryer and run on Air Fluff (no heat) for 10 minutes. Your laundry will smell heavenly and the scent will linger for several days!
The reason for this is because hot air destroys the delicate essential oils. ” ( Woolzies website! )
