What are Woolzies?
Woolzies are eco-friendly dryer balls made from 100% pure New Zealand wool. They act as a natural fabric softener and reduce drying time by 25%. Woolzies are guaranteed to last up to 1000. They are hypoallergenic so even if you are allergic to wool you can still use these dryer balls. They are not mass-produced, but handmade. I’ve been using them for a few weeks now and here is my take on Woolzies.
I have already been using dryer balls, but had become concerned that the spikes on my balls were damaging some delicate fabrics. I wasn’t sure what to do since I’m allergic to most fabric softener sheets. I only use dryer sheets if I need too. I loved that these balls were smooth so they wouldn’t damage my fabric. Straight out of the box they smelled like a wool sweater. The kids and I teased that we had a box of sheep!
In the past I had only used two balls, but I used all 6 Woolzies for my laundry. Did it cut down on dryer time? Yes, my dryer did spend less time drying my clothes. I had no static cling. I was impressed with the fact that I couldn’t hear them banging around my dryer. I have always been concerned with how my dryer will actually hold up to the previous dryer balls I had used. These are soft and gentle. Plus rubber and plastic balls are made from harsh chemicals and PVCs that are released by the hot dryer air. I never even thought about that before, I was only concerned by what was truly in fabric softener. Now I can truly tell me children that yes, we are eco-friendly!
The one complaint that I hear from people is that they like the smell of fabric softener. Not a problem, you can still get fresh scented clothes using Woolzies. When the drying has been completed simply remove 2 balls and add any pure essential oils of your liking. Toss back into the dryer with the other 4 balls and run on air fluff ( no heat) for 10 minutes. Heat will kill the essential oils that is why we use the no heat setting. The scent will linger for days. You can have it all.
Will they last 1000 loads? I can’t honestly answer that, but I’d say I think so. The thought of doing 1000 loads of laundry is unbearable!
