Ever since winning my first set of wool dryer balls in a blog giveaway about a year ago, I have been a little obsessed. They’re wonderful because you can soften your clothes without the use of smelly chemicals that are found in dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners.

There was a time in my life that I did want to smell like a spring breeze (whatever that actually smells like), but now the harsh scents in commercial detergents and softeners bother me. They smell too fake for my taste.

In addition to softening your clothes without chemicals and being much more cost-effective than dryer sheets and liquid softeners, there are other reasons to love dryer balls.

  1. They cut down on drying time by up to 25%
  2. Safe to use on cloth diapers
  3. Helps reduce static and wrinkles

I was excited to be able to review a new (to me) brand of wool dryer balls, Woolzies. Woolzies are a generously sized felted wool dryer ball that comes in a set of six balls. Most dryer balls come in sets of four, so this is great because the more dryer balls you use, the more energy-efficient they are.

Between regular laundry for a family of four, one of those four being a cloth diapered toddler, I am doing at least one load of laundry almost every day. I have been impressed with Woolzies. After a few weeks of frequent use there are no signs of pilling and wear, my laundry is softer, and my drying time is shorter.

  8. I am in LOVE with my Woolzies! Love their “non-static” tip too…make an aluminum foil ball about the same size as a Woolzies ball and toss it in with your wool dryer balls in the dryer load. It does not damage your clothing (the heat makes the ball smooth) and it actually works! I tested this with a dryer load full of towels and they came out static free!
