Relish Reusable Sponsor Spotlight: Woolzies Dryer Balls #RelishReusable

The Relish Reusable Green Giveaway Hop is going on right now! You can enter the giveaway HERE! My wonderful sponsor for this giveaway event is Woolzies Dryer Balls!

When thinking about areas of the home to start using reusable items, the laundry room is definitely an area that you can "green"! I no longer use dryer sheets or fabric softener (not only because they contain harmful chemicals, but they are a big no-no when cloth diapering!), but I still want my laundry to be fluffy and soft. Well, wool dryer balls are the perfect solution! 

I was recently introduced to Woolzies and they are a wonderful company that creates handmade wool dryer balls! Woolzies are handmade with 100% pure New Zealand wool. They work by bouncing around in your dryer, which helps to separate and create space between the items in your dryer. This helps the hot air in the dryer to circulate better and dry your clothes faster. On average, Woolzies cut down on drying time by 25% per load. They also help reduce static and wrinkles. Shorter drying time is better for the environment and it saves money on your electric bill! 

Woolzies generously sent me one of their boxes of wool dryer balls. Each box comes with 6 dryer balls. Using wool dryer balls is a great way to soften your laundry naturally! Unlike plastic dryer balls, they are PVC free and unlike dryer sheets and fabric softeners, they are chemicals free. I have been using them for a few weeks now and I think they are great! They have a permanent home in my dryer (unless little Michael snitches one to play with it). I think that the dryer balls have done a great job of fluffing my laundry - it seems light and soft afterwards. I also have noticed that my drying time has been reduced, probably by about 15 minutes per load.   

Woolzies are perfect for our cloth diapers too! I dry my prefolds, flats and wipes in the dryer and they are done lickety-split. No worrying about chemicals or fragrances that may irritate delicate skin! I feel that the Woolzies dryer balls are made exceptionally well. Each ball varies a little (since they are handmade), but they are all just a bit bigger than a tennis ball. They are firm and I don't think there is any need to worry about them ever coming apart. They are nice and soft and light - which I think lends to them being pretty quiet as they tumble around in the dryer.

Woolzies are the perfect reusable dryer ball to add to your dryer! Ditch the disposable dryer sheets, say bye-bye to the chemicals and switch to a natural, eco-friendly alternative!

Each box of Woolzies is $34.95 for 6 wool dryer balls. This price includes FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the USA! Interested in adding some reusable Woolzies dryer balls to your laundry routine? You can BUY a box of Woolzies HERE.  

One lucky person will win a box of Woolzies from the Relish Reusable giveaway hop {going on from April 1-15th}!  Make sure you ENTER HERE for your chance to win!
