Woolzies wool dryer ball review and giveaway

Since starting my cloth menstrual pad and cloth diapering journey I have learned just how bad fabric softener can be. Traditional fabric softener liquid and dryer sheets contain nasty chemicals and coat your clothes in these chemicals this same chemicals will also destroy the fire retardant qualities of clothing such as children's pajamas. Not to mention that fabric softeners are a big no no on cloth diapers and cloth menstrual pads. When they coat the fabrics it creates a repelling issue so liquid can not be absorbed as it is supposed to. Nothing like a cloth diaper that wont absorb yuck! This also go for all your towels, ever wonder why your towels don't absorb like they did when they where new? You can thank the build up of fabric softener on them for that...

So where to turn? Well there are alternatives and they are Wool Dryer balls. The ones that I am currently using are made by Woolzies. Woolzies are handmade in New Zealand out of felted wool.

They work by adding them to your dryer as you would a dyer sheet. They bounce around in your clothes naturally softening your clothes as they dry and because they separate and create space between your laundry they also are helping air to circulate better. This helps to cut down on your drying time by as much as 25 % in large loads and 35-40 % in small loads. This is saving you both time and money. So great for those thicker clothe diapers such as aoi's that seem to take forever to dry.

Miss the scent that fabric softener provides ? No problem simply add your desired amount of your favorite essential oil to a few of the dryer balls and toss them back in. let them tumble dry on low or no heat and your clothes will have your favorite scent. Also great for aromatherapy, try some lavender on your little ones pajamas for a great nights sleep.

It is recommended that you use 3 xl Balls for a small load, 6 for a large load and 8 for an extra large load. Know what else makes them environmentally friendly and great on your wallet? Your Woolzies are guaranteed to last for 1,000 loads! Woolzies Dryer balls are some of the largest I have seen making them great!

Allergic to wool? That's ok! Since the wool is not toughing your skin and the wool does not shed everyone can use Woolzies!

I use them in every load of clothes I do. My clothes and cloth diapers come out so soft and dry the first time without having to start the dryer again. As a cloth diapering momma I highly recommend them for everyone using cloth diapers and to anyone looking for a great alternative to conventional fabric softener.

Want to try them yourself well your in luck one lucky winner will receive their own box of 6 XL Woolzies dryer balls.
