Welcome to Make it Green in 2015! During the next following weeks, stay tuned to learn a variety of ways to easily make more healthy and ecologically friendly choices for the New Year!
I've been striving to find ways to cut all the chemicals out of my life and recently read that dryer sheets and fabric softener are laden with a concoction of untested toxic chemicals. After use, dryer sheets are just thrown into the garbage can and end up in the landfill. Scary, right? I definitely don't want that stuff in my home, if I can help it!
I've been wanting to substitute my dryer sheets with something natural and when I found Woolzies, I did a happy dance! I was provided a Woolzies Dryer Balls 6 Pack for reviewing purposes.
Woolzies are handmade of 100% pure wool in New Zealand. Here's some important facts about Woolzies Dryer Balls:
- are chemical free
- can reduce drying time by 25%
- last for 1,000 loads of laundry
- reduce static and wrinkles
- naturally softens clothes
- safe for those with wool sensitivities
Because Woolzies are handmade, the size/shape per ball may vary, however I'd estimate the size to be comparable to a tennis ball. It's recommended that you use 6 or more balls for large loads. When they're put into the dryer, they create more space between the clothing, pushing the air through. This improves the drying circulation and saves time, energy and money for you.
Wool has many benefits! It has a natural outer layer which repels moisture and odors from settling into the fabric, giving it antimicrobial capabilities. It is strong fiber and can last for a very long time. It is also fire resistant, and environmentally sustainable. My grandfather had sheep on his farm, and I have a lot of appreciation for farmers. When you buy wool products, you are supporting farmers!
Woolzies Dryer Balls really did cut down my drying time! I usually use a normal setting with medium heat on my natural cloth diaper materials (all the cottons, bamboos, hemps) and sometimes they don't seem to dry completely. Since using Woolzies, I haven't had to add any extra time to the dryer cycle. Also, for my clothing, I have not had any static buildup with Woolzies. My clothes always come out dry and smelling fresh like clothes should smell.
What do I like most about Woolzies Dryer Balls? No more nasty chemicals! Yay!
Is there anything that I would change about Woolzies? I honestly can't think of one thing. I love Woolzies Dryer Balls!
