One of the ways that Nick and I have cut back on household toxins is that we ditched fabric softener and dryer sheets. Both contain an astonishing number of harsh chemicals that are toxic to both the environment and to many people, especially the elderly, the very young, and those with compromised immune systems or existing allergies. I have not been able to use dryer sheets on my own laundry for years, because they caused me to break out in painful itchy rashes, but it took some convincing for Nick to willingly give them up; he’s not a big fan of static electricity.
I’ve been hearing about wool dryer balls for about six months now, but I didn’t really know what they were, or why I might need or want them. I finally got around to reading up on them, and am so glad I did!
Wool dryer balls bounce around in your dryer, separating your laundry and creating space for the hot air to circulate more effectively. This allows your clothing to dry faster and more evenly, cutting down on electricity usage, and eliminating those weird damp spots that tend to show up when too many clothes are bunched together in the dryer. Better for your clothes, and better for the environment.
So when the fantabulous folks over at Woolzies XL Dryer Balls sent me a set of their 100% Pure New Zealand Wool dryer balls free to review, I was thrilled!!
Woolzies XL Dryer Balls changed my LIFE, ya’ll! Okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but seriously – I’m in love with my laundry. ? Here are some benefits I have found, using these wool dryer balls…
1. My laundry is significantly softer and fluffier.
2. My laundry smells better ~ fresh and wholesome!
3. Everything dries much faster!
The only down side to using wool dryer balls is that I actually get a small amount of static in my dry laundry, now, but I certainly don’t consider this a problem with the dryer balls. My clothes were really starting to be almost stiff and dingy, so when I started using the dryer balls they fluffed everything back up, which caused them to be nice enough to actually generate static. I have run laundry for people who do use chemical softeners and dryer sheets, and their laundry is far more static-prone even after using those products, than mine is now, using wool dryer balls.
