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. : )
