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.
- 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 :)
- 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 :)
