Cloth Diaper Friday :: 10 Reasons I Love Wool Dryer Balls {Woolzies}

136 Flares 136 Flares ×

Could wool dryer balls be my second addiction? (After cloth diapers?). Maybe. Here’s 10 Reasons I Love Wool Dryer Balls. And also why I love this product from my friends at Woolzies!

1. They are round. Round is fun. Round is bouncy. Kids love round!

2. They save me money. I never have to buy dryer sheets.

3. They keep chemicals away from my clothing! You may not realize all the chemicals included in your box of dryer sheets are potentially harmful! Including PVCs which are released onto your laundry by the hot dryer air. Yuk.

4. They save me money. I know, I said that already, but also they save me money because my drying time is reduced. Less fuel = lower bills!

5. They save me time. With shorter drying time, I can get laundry folded and put away sooner, instead of waiting up to make sure I have diapers for the next day, I can get to bed earlier. (Not that I do, but if I wanted to!).

6. They treat my clothing better – Soft wool dryer balls gently fluff and soften fabric. No hard edges mean no risk of damaging clothes (or diapers!).

7. They are pure and natural. Woolzies uses pure, handmade New Zealand wool to soften laundry naturally!

8. They are hypoallergenic – Even people with wool allergies can use Woolzies wool dryer balls because they do not shed into the laundry.

9. They last a loooong time. Woolzies is money-back guaranteed to last 1,000+ loads. I don’t even know how long that is in laundry time. I do probably 6-8 loads a week though, so … I’m guessing that is close to three years. Three YEARS of not buying dryer sheets!?

10. My husband likes to juggle them. Kids love juggling. Anything that entertains my kids is just plain awesome. Thanks, Woolzies!

Now, aren’t you curious to try out Woolzies natural New Zealand wool dryer balls? Save yourself some time, energy, and money – and have a good time tossing these slightly squishy balls around while you’re folding laundry too! A set of six retails for $34.95 (which includes shipping anywhere in the US!). Give how long they last, I think that is a great deal!

The best way to always ensure that your knitted creations stay just as nice as the day they were finished is to hand wash them. Even the nicest wool will be damaged in a washing machine or dryer, so hand washing is the preferable method.

Never tried them but like the idea of reducing drying time and not using those yucky sheets.

RachelFebruary 2, 2013 - 7:15 pm

I like that they shorten drying time. I’ve never used wool dryer balls, but I have plastic ones.

ErinFebruary 1, 2013 - 3:05 pm

Never tried Woolzies, but I LOVE my wool dryer balls. They don’t smell good, like when I first got them… but they still work! They make great toys, too! ;-)

CatieJanuary 31, 2013 - 1:53 pm

I don’t currently use wool dryer balls but I would love to start. I love that they are all handmade!

Donna CheatleJanuary 30, 2013 - 8:44 pm

I’ve never used them, but I like that they shorten drying time. I also like that they last for so many loads!

rebecca williamsJanuary 29, 2013 - 4:59 pm

I’m happy about the shorter drying time

ColleenMarie82January 29, 2013 - 11:55 am

I like that they can save my family money and they are healthier

michelle warnerJanuary 29, 2013 - 9:45 am

barnoldsJanuary 26, 2013 - 11:05 pm

I’d really like to dry woolzies because making drying more efficient in a natural way is important to me.

Sarah G.January 26, 2013 - 10:16 pm

I’ve never tried wool dryer balls before, but I’ve always wanted to! I think they would be great to reduce static.

Melissa KJanuary 26, 2013 - 10:16 pm

I gave my MIL some for Channukah and she is a total laundry buff. She loves them and now I want some for myself.

I have not tried these but once bought plastic dryer balls and kicked myself in the butt! The noise level was insane. I love that these are environmentally friendly.

Kristi C.January 26, 2013 - 2:51 am

I do not already use Woolzies, but I want to. I am about to start cloth diapering and I have heard great things about them cutting down drying time for them. I also just like that they cut down dryer time for all your clothes, helping your clothes last longer over all. AND they are 100% wool & don’t shed. They sound great. I am really hoping to win some! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

Amanda AlvaradoJanuary 26, 2013 - 12:53 am

We use woolies already but I need a few new ones since some of mine have disappeared or become cat toys!

Kathy SJanuary 25, 2013 - 11:28 pm

I haven’t used dryer balls yet, but have heard great things about them. Dryer sheets are expensive and seem wasteful.

Colleen MaurinaJanuary 25, 2013 - 11:26 pm

I have heard many good things about dryer balls and like the fact that they can reduce drying time and save money.

Jenny SimsJanuary 25, 2013 - 11:19 pm

I like the idea of using a natural, unscented fabric softening option!

Charlotte RJanuary 25, 2013 - 10:58 pm

I already use wool dryer balls, but I only have 3 so would love get some more!

Beth ReesJanuary 25, 2013 - 9:19 pm

We just started using them and I love them. I love that they reduce static and decrease drying time without all the yucky chemicals

JackieJanuary 25, 2013 - 6:53 pm

I have never used dryer balls. I like that they last a long time, and that they replace dryer sheets.
Thank you!

Cynthia KJanuary 25, 2013 - 5:39 pm

I have never used dryer balls. I won some a while back and gifted them to my daughter-in-law. The more I read about them the more I want my own.

Jennifer Mae HilesJanuary 25, 2013 - 5:38 pm

I have been wanting to try these for so long. I use dryer sheets right now but recently discovered that they have chemicals in them so I would like to which to the woolzies.

Joy NewlanJanuary 25, 2013 - 4:48 pm

I already use wool dryer balls and love them! I like knowing there are not chemicals sticking to my clothes

carolaJanuary 25, 2013 - 4:06 pm

I made myself some dryer balls a while ago. Sadly, they are unraveling a bit now, so I am borrowing my SIL’s felting needle to fix that.
I still need a few more though! I only have three, and I think 5 to 6 is recommended for them to work their best.

Katie LJanuary 25, 2013 - 2:38 pm

I use dryer balls but I don’t have enough to make much difference in dry time

TosiaJanuary 25, 2013 - 2:05 pm

We do already use dryer balls in our house I love that they are a healthy chemical free alternative to dryer sheets and fabric softener because after our first daughter was born I learned what soft as a baby’s bottom really meant and I want to keep her that way =)

Sarah HayesJanuary 25, 2013 - 2:00 pm

I have never used these but Id love to. I like that they make clothes and diapers softer

Kim PollockJanuary 25, 2013 - 1:40 pm

I do not use dryer sheets and have been wanting to try some of these forever.

Crunchy Beach MamaJanuary 25, 2013 - 1:31 pm

I do use dryer balls. I love that Woolzies uses natural, handmade wool from New Zealand!

P loves playing with these balls. Love the juggling idea.

CindyJanuary 25, 2013 - 12:58 pm

I like that is reduces drying time.

Sabrina RadkeJanuary 25, 2013 - 12:15 pm

Liana W.January 25, 2013 - 11:47 am

I haven’t used dryer balls, yet, but would LOVE to stop using dryer sheets! I like that the balls have no chemicals in them!

SonyaJanuary 25, 2013 - 11:34 am

Never tried dryer balls but I have always wanted to!!!

Monique EckertJanuary 25, 2013 - 10:11 am

Woolzies look so much nicer than the dryer ball I made! I would love to try them. We do to use dryer sheets anymore and I make my own fabric softener too!

Sarah HayesJanuary 25, 2013 - 9:50 am

Ive never used them before but Id love to try them! I like that they make clothes softer and that they are 100% natural and safe for using with cloth diapers

Jessica LJanuary 25, 2013 - 9:27 am

I haven’t used regular fabric softener or dryer sheets for more than 5 years because I and my kids are allergic…I don’t have any wool dryer balls and I’d love to try them! Usually we make do with nothing but that doesn’t always work so well in the winter!

I have no experience with dryer balls but they sound like a very green and thrifty way to soften clothing. I have used tennis balls in the dryer when I wash my down pillows and that works well.

Sandra BeemanJanuary 25, 2013 - 9:18 am

I like the whole concept of never buying dryer sheets which are too expensive and frequently don’t do such a great job.

Realia MJanuary 25, 2013 - 8:29 am

i would love to try woolzies i love the idea of being more eco friendly

Trisha W.January 25, 2013 - 7:17 am

I like wool dryer balls. I haven’t used dryer sheets for a couple of years now.

E looks so cute in that picture!

Katrina SmithJanuary 25, 2013 - 1:29 am

Yes I love using these dryer balls!

Anne PerryJanuary 25, 2013 - 12:53 am

I love that they male drying time less, no chemicals and that they are reusable & stop static.
