Woolzies Dryer Balls Review and Giveaway!

When I started using cloth diapers I stopped using dryer sheets, and ever since I've been looking for an alternative.  Well, I think I finally found it...Woolzies Dryer Balls!

I stopped using dryer sheets because I found out that the chemicals in them can leave a film on the surface of the dryer and transfer to the cloth diapers, causing a build up that could make the diapers leak.  First of all, I didn't want my diapers to leak!  Second, I try to avoid using chemicals when I can.  So, for the past year or so, I just haven't used anything besides laundry detergent, and I've noticed a lot of static in our clothing (and I kind of miss the smelly-goodness of the dryer sheets...even if it is produced by chemicals!).  I started looking for a solution and I saw that a lot of people have started using wool dryer balls, so I decided to give them a try...success!

I received a box of 6 wool dryer balls from Woolzies.  I've been using them for about a week on various loads of laundry.  They work great for my diapers; the liners come out very soft and fluffy.  I dried a pretty large load of sheets and towels and they were dry within an hour, where it usually takes about an hour and a half.  I did a load of regular clothes, including my husband's PT uniforms, which are notoriously full of static, and we both noticed a reduction in the amount of static in our clothes.  So, I've found an easy, all-natural alternative to fabric softeners and static reducers, and I get to use less electricity by cutting down drying time.  AND I saw that you can add a few drops of essential oil to the dryer balls to leave your laundry lightly scented!  I haven't tried that yet, but I'll get to have my yummy scented laundry again :}

I would highly recommend giving these a try, and take a step towards going green in 2014!  Happy New Year!
