In an effort to cut out chemicals from our household, I have done a few things. We use homemade cleaner, dishwasher tabs and face wash. One thing I had been wanting to switch to was Dryer Balls. I have read the benefits, but never actually made a purchase. They were a bit more expensive then dryer sheets (so I thought), and I was worried they might damage clothing or leave it all static-y. I hate static in my clothes.
When Woolzies offered me a box of their dryer balls, I was excited to finally try them out. They arrived with a fact sheet as to why dryer balls were in fact a good investment, and I put them to the test.
The Woolzies Dryer Balls came in a box of 6. I was told to throw them all in the dryer. I was worried it would sound like tennis balls in the dryer, but I have not noticed any extra sounds.
I have been using the Dryer Balls for close to a month, and can say I have not noticed a huge difference between the chemical filled dryer sheets and the all-natural Woolzies Dryer Balls. My clothes have not been static-y, are still soft and it works great for my sensitive skin (I can’t use certain dryer sheets because of this sensitivity). I even timed a load of towels, and with the dryer balls compared to sheets, it was 5 minutes less. Not a huge amount, but better than nothing!
The biggest thing for me, the Woolzies Dryer Balls are GUARANTEED to last 1,000 washes. That’s a whole lot of laundry. I usually do about 4 loads a week. At that rate, the box of Woolzies Dryer Balls I have, will last me just under 5 years. That’s right, 5 years. Even if you average 1 load of laundry a day, they will still last you just under 3 years. It makes the initial cost of $34.95 seem pretty good, huh?
I will definitely be continuing to use the dryer balls in place of dryer sheets, and on top of that, one of you can to! Woolzies has graciously offered a box of their dryer balls to one of my readers.
