6 Woolzies Dryer Ball Review & Giveaway


As you know I've used wool dryer balls before (and still do!)  The chemicals in the commercial fabric softener sheets are so bad, I won't go into detail here this time but I'd encourage you to research it. They are filled with many toxic chemicals for your body. Yuck!

Anyway, these new dryer balls - Woolzies, that I'm talking about today are great!  They are 100% natural and have no dyes or fragrances.  My family has sensitivities to chemicals and fragrances so this is always a big plus.  These balls are about the size of your palm, though because they are hand made each ball differs just slightly from the other.


I already had 4 dryer balls in my dryer before adding the 6 woolzies I got.  Adding 6 more to my dryer has made a rather big difference in both the drying time and the amount of static in the dried clothes. :)  I haven't noticed a huge difference in the time but I know that these dryer balls will make a huge difference in the amount of time is takes to dry clothes. It's just that my dryer doesn't work well and I need to replace it sometime.  It roughly would take 110 minutes to dry 1 regular sized load with just my 4 dryer balls but now with the additional 6 it's only taking about 80 minutes to dry a load.  This is great because to get 110 minutes on my dryer I would have to reset the dryer, and if you are a mom you know how much a pain that can be as you just forget about it too easily! :)

Dryer balls are great with cloth diapers (if you dry them in the dryer).  The best part about dryer balls with cloth diapers is the fact that the drying time is cut back so much helping keep the wear and tear of the dryer down on your diapers. : )  You can read about the way I wash my diapers here.

These balls are made very well and will last a very long time with regular use.  They are guaranteed to last 1,000 loads or your money back!  They are firm yet soft and are not loud in the dryer at all as it spins around and around.  My boys love when I do the laundry and to find all the balls and then through them back into the dryer.  Sometimes they try to take them away and play with them but they are starting to understand that these are mommies balls and aren't play balls. : )

WOOLZIES®, The All Natural Dryer Ball Set. This set of six handmade pure wool dryer balls are special in several ways. They deliver the same benefits for laundry as conventional fabric softeners WITHOUT all the nasty chemicals. They save everyone a lot of money by eliminating the need to continuously spend on fabric softener liquid and sheets. They cut down on the time it takes to dry a typical load by at least 25% thereby saving everyone even more money and cutting down on fossil fuel usage. Finally, being as that they are handmade in the democratic republic of Nepal, they provide a steady source of income to the desperately needy women of that developing nation.

Each box of WOOLZIES contains 6 handmade woolen dryer balls. The cost per box is $34.95 with FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the USA including Alaska and Hawaii. 

If you have more questions about the use of dryer balls and about Woolzies they are a very good FAQ page here.

LuckyGranola said...

I have heard so much about dryer balls, and I'm excited to try them! From what I've read, it seems like they save a lot of drying time. As a cloth diaper user, I do quite a bit of laundry each week. These would be great :)

Sarah Hull said...

I use dryer balls and love them. I think that they fluff my laundry nicely and I am always surprised at how quickly things dry! I would love to have some more though to speed up drying time even more.

All Natural Katie said...

Currently have three and would like some more to decrease the drying time and static.

Peppin said...

Yes, I love my dryer balls. I found out that regular dryer sheets have chemicals and animal fat in them which grossed me out. I have used my dryer balls so much they have shrunk considerably, so I will need to replace them soon.

Brittany Land said...

I have never used them but Id love to see if they really cut down on dry time.

Daniannieb said...

I use dryer balls in my laundry to avoid chemicals. My sister uses dryer balls with her diapers, but she could use more.

Lisa Fox said...

I have used dryer balls before (I'm currently using some), but I've never tried Woolzies, so I'd like to see how they compare. I'm also starting to have some static issues with the current wool dryer balls that I have, so trying another brand might be worthwhile.

Lianne said...

I haven't used them, but I'd love to reduce drying time!

Sarah Hayes said...

i use them and love them. i like that they are natural

Rachel said...

I have used dryer balls! Well, I used one legit one, and a couple home made ones (by me) that fell apart. We cloth diaper and cut out fabric softener before we started, so I'd love to have a natural fabric softener. Plus, I would love to cut our drying time down!

Brandi Swanson said...

Just started to use them but need more!

SusanAlexander said...

I've been using dryer balls, but mine finally fell apart and I REALLY need new ones! This would be a huge blessing for me right now!

Kasi Hill Erwin said...

I've never used them, but I want to see if they really cut drying time. Thanks!

Stacey Wilson said...

I don't have dryer balls but would love to try them to get rid of static cling!

Keri said...

I've tried wool dryer balls before, and love them, however they started to wear and come apart. I suspect they were either not wrapped tight enough, or not felted completely.

Heidi said...

I have never used them before, but I am excited to try!

Krystal said...

I love my wool dryer balls! I like the idea of saving money every time I put them in my dryer.

This would be my first time using wool dryer balls. My mom uses dryer sheets but i'm going to try to get her to switch so that I can use the dryer for my cloth diapers!

Erin B. said...

I have never tried wool dryer balls. I really want to though! I usually have to run diapers through dryer twice, so I would love to cut that down to just once by using dryer balls!

Randi said...

I've not used them, but we intend to cloth diaper and I hear they're great for that...plus saving on fabric softener!!

Theresa said...

I just recently started using wool balls and I LOVE them! If I won these I would give them to my FIL. He was asking us questions the other day and seemed very interested in trying them too.

Jen-B said...

I have never used Dryer balls but they seem like they'd be great to speed up the drying of my cloth diapers since I never have a full load to keep things moving

Kristen said...

I've never used dryer balls but I hear they're great and cut down on the drying time. That's a plus in my book!

Mary D said...

I haven't used them yet but I really want to. I'd love it if all of my diapers would dry on one cycle!

Cathy Bane said...

I've never used them but have wanted to try them since I first heard of them. I'm most interested in using them to reduce the dry time on my cloth diapers.

Amye said...

I have made some of my own dryer balls they do seem to reduce drying time, but not static. I have used them to reduce drying time in the winter when line drying is not an option. My homemade ones pill up and need to be felted again. I would love to try professional made to see if they do reduce static

Jenny said...

i have never used them but want to! Ever since we stopped using fabric softener, my clothes have so much static!

Melanie LaFleche said...

I use them. I made my own, but they are unraveling one by one! I like that they reduce drying time though.

Amy L said...

I've never used dryer balls before, but I'd like to try them. I'm sensitive to any type of fragrance in laundry products, so I think this would be a great alternative to fabric softener for me.

Amy L said...

I haven't tried dryer balls, but would like to, as I'm sensitive to scented fabric softeners.

virginiabelle2000 said...

Yes I love thm. They save money

~Kelly said...

I have used them before. I like them.

Lauren said...

I have never tried wool dryer balls, but they sound wonerful

I haven't tried them yet but I'm more and more curious. I just skip the fabric softener to avoid the perfumes and chemicals but these seem like a perfect alternative! :)

Julie Ragozzine said...

Just starting using them this month, would love to have a few more!

Christine said...

yes I have, and I love them! I love how they negate the need for any fabric softeners on all laundry!

I've never used dryer balls but am interested to see if they really work.

Nicole Gutermann said...

I love dryer balls. They really do help speed drying time. Especially with my cloth diapers.

Amber Thompson said...

I made some dryer balls once and I thought they worked ok. I only had two though and I hear the more the better. I really want to cloth diaper my next baby though so I know that dryer sheets is not an option for that. I will most likely be switching to all dryer balls when that happens.

cself said...

I have used dryer balls before, ones I have made myself. I couldn't get mine as tight and felted as they should be so I think they are a little light. I think they are perfect for cloth dipes to keep them soft and to decrease drying time. I would love to try some that are made correctly :)

I love dryer balls. We have 9 but they seem to vanish all the time, not sure if I should blame the dogs or the toddler or the crawling baby.
