Summer is winding down now, with the cooler air and rain of fall rolling in. No more hanging my laundry out on the line if I want it to dry in a timely manner. We haven’t used fabric softener or dryer sheets in years due to cloth diapering (they can cause build-up and repelling issues) but now that we’re done with diapers we could go back…except that I have about a 10% success rate of actually remembering to put something in the dryer and I never remember to buy liquid fabric softener. I’ve been using those plastic dryer balls that you can find at the dollar store but they crack and to be honest, I don’t think that they actually do much to combat static. Woolzies are handmade dryer balls from New Zealand wool and are supposed to reduce static, drying time and wrinkles! Check out Woolzies’ features:
I have been using Woolzies dryer balls for a few weeks now and I’ve definitely noticed less static in our clothing when I take them out of the dryer. I can’t say that I’ve noticed a difference in the drying time but that is all because I never remember when the load is supposed to be done so it usually sits for a while before I check on it. What really impressed me was how quiet Woolzies are; I thought with 6 balls of wool flying around in my dryer the racket would be awful, but they’re actually quieter than the 2 plastic dryer balls I used to use!
Woolzies says to use all 6 dryer balls at once but I’m finding that 3 is working with the size of loads that I do so I’m sticking with that. As a bonus, that means I could get 2,000 loads of laundry out of one box of Woolzies! There’s no way I’d be getting that from any box of dryer sheets or plastic dryer balls. And since I can just leave them in the dryer I don’t have to think about fabric softener, which is one less thing on my list to worry about.
One lucky reader will win their own box of Woolzies!
