I recently had the pleasure to try out Woolzies Dryer Balls! I have heard so much hype about wool dryer balls, yet I have never actually tried them! Needless to say, I was super excited to try these things out. I received a 6 pack of Woolzies Dryer Balls to review. When they arrived, I will be honest. I was very skeptical. How can adding these to my dryer cut down on drying time, cut down on static, reduce wrinkles AND last for at least 1,000 loads? I guess, I am just the type of person that has to see it myself to believe it.
Welcome to the official site for Woolzies, the all natural fabric softener. Woolzies are pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls that soften your laundry naturally without any of the chemicals of conventional fabric softeners. Unlike the plastic dryer balls, they are PVC free and won’t fall apart or melt on you. Woolzies save time and energy by cutting down on drying time by an average of 25% per load. They also help reduce static and wrinkles.
Use Woolzies to snuggle up with naturally downy soft laundry that’s completely free of harmful chemicals. Woolzies are also hypo-allergenic and totally safe for people with wool sensitivities as they will not shed onto your laundry.
Unlike even natural dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners, Woolzies last for 1,000 loads and are therefore extremely eco friendly. So why risk your health and waste your money with regular fabric softeners when you can save time, energy and money with all natural pure Woolzies!
Each box of WOOLZIES contains 6 handmade woolen dryer balls. The cost per box is $34.95 with FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the USA including Alaska and Hawaii!!!! They do offer Worldwide shipping for ONLY $6.95!
At first I had my doubts, but after using Woolzies for a few days those doubts quickly faded away. The first time I used them, I added them to the dryer with my HUGE Down Alternative Comforter. This thing normally takes 2 full drying cycles to dry. Not with Woolzies!!! It dried in only 1 cycle with Woolzies added to the dryer. I couldn’t believe it. My husband and I went on for hours about how impressed we were.
After a couple of days, everything was great. Drying time was cut almost in half for everything. Our clothes were getting less wrinkles. But we had one problem, the static was out of control! It felt as if our clothes had an electric charge and it held for days. We had static everywhere, it was a hot mess.
I did some research and contacted Woolzies, who responded within the hour! They suggested 2 things:
- Put the dryer balls in thin socks, wash with soap and hot water. Then remove from socks and dry very well on the highest heat setting.
- Many customers have told them that rolling up a piece of regular kitchen aluminum foil into a ball the size of one of the Woolzies and keeping it in the dryer helps even further to reduce static.
I decided to try washing and drying them first. Off I went to the laundry room. I did exactly what they said to do. Then I did regular laundry and gave them another shot. NO STATIC!!! I didn’t even need to try the foil ball trick. Washing and Drying worked like a charm. I LOVE troubleshooting!
Now that the static is under control and we are loving our Woolzies, I decide it is about time to sent them! I picked up some lavender essential oil from the store to use since I love the scent of lavender. I contacted Woolzies when I first received the dryer balls to get instructions on scenting them. Here is what they said to do.
The trick though and this is very important is to put the drops of essential oil onto a few of the balls AFTER the laundry is completely dry. Then put the drops on and run on no heat/air fluff for like 10-15 minutes. Your laundry will smell amazing.*Otherwise, the heat, even a very small amount will mostly dissipate the essential oil.
So, I did what they said and I was in love. They were right! My clothes smelled absolutely amazing and it was super easy to do myself. Even adding the extra 10-15 minutes are clothes still dried a LOT faster than without the dryer balls.
Now, I have been using these as part of my regular laundry routine for about a month. I am completely in love with them. Our clothes dry faster, have less static, less wrinkles and they smell wonderful. I am over the top impressed with them.
