The first person to introduce me to dryer balls was my grandmother. I had no idea why she had balls bouncing around her dryer when I was younger. I thought it was one of her quirky things at first but when I got older she told me that they help lower her energy costs by reducing the time is takes clothes to dry. I should of known… she always has reasons for the things she does. She knows so much!
Guess what I did when I got home from visiting her? I bought some dryer balls. The kind of dryer balls I bought were those blue almost spiky looking ones. They seemed to work for my purposes but are a little noisy in the dryer.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try out Woolzies Dryer Balls. They are made from 100% pure New Zealand Wool. The trick to dryer balls is that they help keep clothes separated while drying in turn making the whole load dry faster (by allowing more air flow through the clothes). They do work for this purpose which then snow balls down into you using less energy lowering your electric bill. I’m always happy to save money, aren’t you?
I love that these dryer balls can be reused over and over again. Much better than buying boxes of dryer sheets that only last so long. Overall, I have noticed less wrinkles and static cling (besides my homemade disinfecting wipes – they stick to everything!) And these dryer balls produce less noise than the previous mentioned blue plastic dryer balls.
I loved learning how Woolzies Dryer Balls don’t “contain chemicals that destroy the fire retardant qualities in clothing” or “reduce the absorbency of towels” like other dryer products according to the makers of Woolzies. These dryer balls are all natural and don’t contain harsh things like PVC’s like other plastic dryer balls. Looks like I’m trading out my blue, spiky dryer balls for the much safer Woolzies Dryer Balls-they make going green look easy!
