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…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
