Woolzies Dryer Balls Review and Giveaway

My review and giveaway for this week is  for Woolzies Dryer Balls.

These six eco-friendly dryer balls are a great alternative to chemical ridden dryer sheets and fabric softeners. They are handmade out of fine New Zealand wool, no chemicals added. I love this because the fewer the chemicals that have to touch my baby's skin the better. Also if we ever found out that she is allergic to wool we would still be able to use these dryer balls because they don't shed!

At Target you can buy a 103 oz., 120 load bottle of Downy for $8.99. Good deal right? NOT! With Woolzies Dryer Balls you only pay $34.95 and you get 1,000 loads. With Downy you would have to spend over $75 to get 1,000 loads. Another way you will save money is because they reduce drying time by 25%, that will add up very fast.

My experience:

One of the biggest reasons for why I was so excited to get them was because of the 25% decrease in drying time. This is because I live in an apartment complex that does not have hook-ups in the apartments but they have a laundry room on every floor. In the laundry room they have 2 very small washers and 2 normal sized, but not very efficient, dryers. Also each load costs money. When I first tested the dryer balls out I did it with the colors because I had 2 washers full so I put each load into a different dryer, one with the dryer balls and one without, so that I could compare the results.

The results were not too drastic. Normally I have to put a colored load in for more than one dryer cycle but both loads were pretty dry. The load without the dryer balls did have a couple of items that were damp so I am going to conclude that they did help with the drying time but probably not by 25%.

One thing that did happen that I wasn't expecting was that they did leave a little bit of a scent on my clothes. I didn't expect this because I assumed that most hype-allergenic products are scent free but the dryer balls smell very good so another plus.

I could not think of any cons, except that it is one more thing that I have to carry to and from the laundry room but if you have a laundry room in your own apartment or house than you will not have to worry about that.

In conclusion, I would totally recommend these to anyone who does laundry. I know that I am going to restock mine after 1,000 loads!
