Woolzies Dryer Balls – Review & Giveaway!


Disclosure:  I received this product for free as part of a review and giveaway opportunity. The opinions in my review are honest and my own and I would never recommend a product I would not personally use and purchase myself.

It’s funny how a bit of time can change things.  Just over a year ago, I was probably just like a lot of busy moms, just using products that I had grown up with because I didn’t have the time or energy to research alternatives.  With health challenges in our home and the desire to find more natural ways of cleaning, eating and caring for our bodies I was thrilled with the opportunity to try Woolzies Dryer Balls.

I had been looking for an alternative to dryer sheets and had discontinued buying them about 6 months ago.  I loved using my vinegar laundry rinse but I still found that I had some static cling when I removed my clothes from the dryer.  I had heard about wool dryer balls being the answer.  A natural way to combat static plus they can reduce drying time – which saves me money!

What are Woolzies Dryer Balls?Woolzies-dryer-balls-pack

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 (read why you want to stay away from PVC) and won’t fall apart or melt on you.

Save Time and Money

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.  Unlike even natural dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners, Woolzies last for 1,000 loads and are therefore extremely eco friendly. I am not interested in risking my health by adding more chemicals and I am certainly willing to save some money!  It is a win-win with all natural pure Woolzies.

What Makes Woolzies Eco-Friendly?

Chemicals used in conventional dryer sheets emit toxins into the air and onto your clothes which can then be absorbed through your skin. Woolzies are made of wool so they are chemical-free.

With a bunch of Woolzies bouncing around your dryer your clothes will separate, allowing more air to flow between the clothes, thus reducing drying time, which saves me money!  I found that my drying time was reduced by the 25% they suggest.

Woolizes last for 1,000 loads before they need to be replaced – love that!

Do Woolzies Work?

I’ve been using Woolzies for the past few weeks.  I found that my clothes dry faster  and they come out of the dryer static-free. I also love that I can add a few drops of essential oils to the balls in the last few minutes of drying, which give my clothes a wonderful natural scent, not chemically.

Should You Buy Woolzies

I would recommend a big YES!  If you are looking to cut chemicals, save money and time doing laundry, the initial investment to purchase Woolzies will pay off very quickly.   Get them quickly from amazon – free prime shipping the last I looked!

  • Oh dear, why do I have so much laundry? It looks like I am right up there with the top Laundresses at 10-14 loads! I only have three kids!!! I’m just glad you didn’t ask how many loads of clean laundry I have in piles around the house waiting to be put away. I don’t want to answer that one… P.S. The dryer balls sound awesome, thanks for doing the giveaway!

  • Jane Curtis

    I probably do 5-6 loads per week, depending on what’s going on.

  • Jackie

    I do about 6-8 large capacity loads a week….this used to be about 10-12 loads in our smaller washer. I would love to win these dryer balls. I have just been beginning to learn about how to rid my home of unneeded chemicals. I have a long way to go!

  • Kelley

    On any give week I do about 7-9 loads on laundry! It seems like it is always laundry time. I hope we win the dryer balls and are a great alternative to the dry sheet.
