Woolzies Dryer Balls...Giveaway!

Since moving into our new house, we've learned a lot about energy-saving techniques. Our home was designed with energy star efficiency, which has made a shockingly noticeable difference in our utility bills. It's also sparked our interest in finding more ways to be energy efficient!

One way a friend of mine suggested becoming more energy efficient was to try Woolzies Dryer Balls. She said that they cut down on the time clothes need to be run through the dryer. I was immediately interested and really wanted to try them. The people of Woolzies generously offered to send a set of Woolzies Dryer Balls to try and share the results with our readers. Here's how it went:

A rectangular carton of six Woolzies Dryer Balls came in one package. I opened the package and immediately noticed how dense the balls are. I read the insert that came in the box, which explains that these balls are all-natural (score!) wool, eco-friendly, and fight static cling and wrinkles. The directions said to toss all 6 balls into the dryer  with a normal size load of laundry, without the need for fabric softener, so that's just what we did. Then we tossed all of our wet laundry in to the dryer with them and let them do their job. You can definitely hear the balls spinning around in the dryer, which took me by surprise initially. However, once I walked out of the laundry room, I couldn't hear them at all.

So how did they do? We usually set our dryer on "More Dry" to fully dry our clothes. I tend to wash larger than normal loads of laundry each time, so a regular load setting typically doesn't dry our clothes enough. This time I decided to try the regular setting in hopes that the Woolzies would come through for me. When the buzzer went off I ran upstairs to check on our clothes right away. When I opened the door and pulled out the laundry, I found an entire load of completely dry clothes wrinkle-free with no static cling! This was a very exciting first try.

We now use our Woolzies dryer balls on a regular basis. Each time we pull laundry out  of the dryer we toss the balls back in the dryer and just keep them there for the next time. They have made a noticeable difference in how fast and effectively our laundry dries. As far as static is concerned, Woolzies do a decent job, however, my nylons and knee highs still cling to my clothes. In Woolzies' defense, I have yet to find anything that totally stops them from clinging to my clothes. After many loads using Woolzies, we can say that it has definitely cut down on wrinkled clothes, especially during times that we leave the clothes in a bit too long.

It's obvious that these dryer balls are an asset in drying my clothes, which saves us money as far as our electricity bill is concerned, but they also save us money on dryer sheets. Each set of Woolzies is supposed to last about one year. That's a ton of savings in a year, considering you can get a package of Woolzies for less than $40!

For a product to be all-natural, energy efficient, eco-friendly, and a money saver, how could I not recommend this to others? Woolzies has met and exceeded our expectations and we are very happy that we gave them a try.
