Review and Giveaway Woolzie Balls

Follow on Bloglovin


Review

 I have wanted to try the Woolzie balls for at least 4 years now. I wasn't ever able to win them, no matter how many contests I entered. Thankfully I was given the opportunity to review them on my blog.



As soon as I got the Woolzie balls, I started doing laundry. One of the things I really wanted to test was the claims of reduced drying time. Everyone kept bragging about this but I am always inclined to not believe it unless I try it myself. Well they didn't lie. I washed a load of towels and put them in the dryer for 20 minutes less time. When the dryer kicked off the towels were dry and soft and fluffy.  That will help out on the electric, which is great since the electric company just got a raise. My daughter really liked the towels because she said they actually smelled fresh and clean as if they had been line dried.



 I don't normally use fabric softener because I have read about all the chemicals in them. I am trying to become greener in our daily lives. Woolzie balls are 100% natural wool, no chemicals and they are made by hand.  If you want to add some scent you can add a couple of drops of essential oil to one or 2 of the balls. Then if you get tired of the scent you just leave those balls out. Some people have said these are noiseless but I found that to not be true. You can't hear them thumping from all the rooms but if you are close by you can hear them bouncing around in the dryer. It wasn't loud enough to be annoying though.

I have learned that I have to make sure the balls are not trapped in the clothes when I get them out of the dryer. The first time I didn't, I dropped one and my dog Maxine was off and running with it :). To her it was the same as one of the balls we buy her. We were able to retrieve it unharmed. I was really relieved that there were no chemicals in the balls to harm Maxine though.

WOOLZIES are guaranteed to last for 1,000 loads or your money back. 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.  This works out to less than .04 cents per use. I have read of people having these for 3 yrs or more. That's a long time to not have to buy and store fabric softeners. After using them for a week, I can honestly say, I love Woolzie balls and am so glad I got to try them. I will be using them from now on.
