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!

  • Kim

    A good 10+. I too have always wanted to try these. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Scelena Washer

    I do at least two loads a day and DO NOT have the time to iron. Anything that cuts down on electricity usage, chemicals, AND wrinkles sounds like a win, win, win!

  • Denise

    These look very interesting and I would love the chance to win. Thank you.

  • Patti H

    Love your sight! I do about 10 loads a week. I currently use the plastic dryer balls. Would like to try a more natural option.

  • Laura

    I have four children and do at least a load of laundry a day – sometimes 2 or 3!! Right now we are living in an apartment while waiting for our house to be completed and we are using a not so efficient apartment sized washer and dryer. This sounds like a life saver – maybe the clothes would actually get dry in the regular cycle??!!

  • At the moment, I do about 4-5 loads per week – but we have a baby coming in Febraury so that will be amped up a ton, starting real soon! And even more when we start using cloth diapers!!! πŸ™‚ I would LOVE to try Woolzies, I have heard of them from all the Cloth Diaper Mommas! Thanks for this chance!

  • Gina Zahra

    We do 4-6 loads a week. My daughters have school uniforms which, I think, cuts down on the number of wardrobe changes every day πŸ™‚

  • Amber Parker

    I do 8-10 loads a week. With a child that is allergic to many things and asthmatic I have been on a search for something to help our clothes not be static when coming out of dryer.

  • Gina Zahra

    We do 4-6 loads a week πŸ™‚

    To tell the truth I am not even sure how many loads of laundry we do a week! Too many to count I presume. πŸ™‚ We are a family of six and we all love to play in the dirt!
    I would love these! We try and conserve as much as possible by making our own softener and hanging the laundry out to dry as much as the weather allows us to. Winning a box of these would just make my day!

    I do about 5-6 loads of laundry each week and just heard about dryer balls a few weeks back.

  • Kristen

    I do approx 7-8 loads per week not counting my cloth diapers loads which would increase that (but I don’t put them in the dryer).

  • 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!

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

  • 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.
