Woolzies Dryer Balls - A Review


Do you like doing laundry?  No??  That's okay, me neither.  Well that isn't true.  I like sorting, washing, and drying my laundry, I just hate folding it.  I would say I hate putting it away, but since I rarely get to that part, I don't really mind it much.  Yup, my family lives out of laundry baskets.

One thing I hate about doing laundry is static electricity.  Something I hate more is fabric softener.  I am not sure that I have ever used fabric softener as an adult, since its full of chemicals (not unlike laundry soap, which I do use...  Hmmm, I am a little inconsistant...) and ruins your towels absorbancy.  So imagine my delight when I was selected to review Woolzies!

Woolzies are 100% pure New Zealand wool dryer balls. 
 
A picture of the Woolzies.  I am a terrible photographer and probably should have inquired about stock photos before I wrote this.  But since the review had to be done by today and I make up for my lack of other skills with being awesome at procrastinating, I didn't have time!

Pros:
  • Easy to use - just throw them in the dryer with your wet clothes.
  • Cost effective (I think, remember I don't use fabric softener) - they are guaranteed to last for 1,000 loads. 
  • REALLY reduce static electricity - I am not actually that worried about my clothes being soft.  they always seem pretty soft to me.  I do notice static cling though, and its terrible.  Even my husbands work shirts (made of some horrid fabric I hate, but he loves - dri-fit maybe?) which are usually full of socks and such were cling free.  I even noticed when I didn't use them!  You can see the static they absorb, because they look like your hair after you play on a trampoline :)
Cons:
  • They roll around like crazy if you let them fall out of the dryer.  Which amuses the kids and the cat, but doesn't amuse me much.  Not a big deal since they are washable, but a little annoying.  
  • They are a little expensive, $34.95 for a set of six (you use all six at a time).  I think this evens out over the course of time you don't have to buy fabric softener though.

To purchase them you can go to the Woolzies Dryer Balls website.  As I said, they are $34.95, and they have free shipping. 

I highly recommend them, if you can afford them.  If you use fabric softener, I would definitely suggest you replace it with Woolzies.  To learn more about Woolzies, visit them on Twitter or Facebook :)


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
