Back in March, I received a box of Woolzies Dryer Balls to test out from Soft by Nature, Inc. At first, I thought they were somewhat strange. They were palm-sized balls that were soft and a little squishy. I thought to myself, “How the heck are these things going to dry my clothes faster or soften the fabric.” It only took one load to scare away my skeptic side.
Woolzies are made from 100% Pure New Zealand Wool. They contain no toxins or harmful chemicals that you find in regular fabric softeners. All of the claims made by the company turned out to be astonishingly accurate. Right from the first load, my drying time was reduced, static was no longer an issue, and the clothing and towels fluffed up. In addition, they have not broken apart or damaged the dryer in any way because they are soft and solid. It was like breathing new life into my laundry routine!
Eventually, I noticed the Woolzies were not removing the static as well from my dryer loads. There is a very easy fix for this! Simply place the dryer balls in socks, wash them, and then throw them in the dryer (remember to take them out of the socks first though!) I’ve done this twice since I started using the dryer balls, and it worked like a charm both times.
A small side note:
I was having a lot of trouble with my dryer when I first got these dryer balls. I had to dry loads two or three times to get them completely dry. I tried just about everything to fix the issue, but nothing worked. I changed nothing about the load size or materials I was drying when I first tried Woolzies. They cut my drying time in half on the very first load! I was simply amazed and knew this would continue to be a great product.
If you are trying to lead a healthier lifestyle, trying to use natural products, trying to shield your family from harsh chemicals and toxins, or just interested in trying something new and different, Woolzies Dryer Balls are a great place to start.
UPDATE (11/17/13): Here is a picture of one of the dryer balls as of today.
It has held up pretty well considering the 4-6 loads of laundry we do each week. You can see hair, fuzzies, and string attached to it. Running it through the washer should take care of that while reactivating its static-removing and fluffing power.
