Living Simply: Woolzies Dryer Balls #reuse #gogreen #review

Woolzies Dryer Balls #reuse #gogreen #review

5:58 PM


I have quite a collection of dryer balls.  So many in fact, that when I opened the box of Woolzies and added all six of them to the dryer, Hubby wondered why I needed so many. 'Don't you only need like two?' he asked, not having researched the concept at all...no, I replied, the more the better!

This box of wool dryer balls, hand made in Nepal, are all you need to get started saving money on your laundry routine. They will soften your clothes and speed up drying them when tossed in the dryer.  You will no longer need to buy and dispose toxic fabric softener sheets. You are doing your body and the earth a favor! You will also save on energy bills and money when these dryer balls are a part of your laundry routine.

So what makes these dryer balls different from all the others out there you might ask. Well, for one, they are super light. Compared to my other wool dryer balls, they are much lighter. I think that is because super thin threads of wool are used in the Woolzies.
Second, the size is unique. They are not quite jumbo but are bigger than my large size dryer balls.  Finally, and most surprisingly to me, these do not smell like sheep. They smell like clean sheep :) It is only a slight wool-ish smell. This is a big draw to people who might not like the usual raw wool smell or texture. Woolzies are subtly effective!

Disclosure: I was provided a free product for review. The opinions in this review are my own true experiences. However, yours may be different.

  3. wonder do a lot of the different dryer balls smell like sheep? Does it make your clothes stink? I love the concept and would love to cut down on drying time and static but now I am picturing a wet dog (sheep) smell...

    1. Hi :) The dryer balls do not smell much. I just gave my tongue-in-cheek impression of what they smelled like when I stuck them under my nose. I didn't get a whiff of anything when I took them out of the box. And when you open the dryer, you just get the faintest smell of wool, not wet sheep. No worries if you are interested in converting. Just start with two at first, and see if you can find them in a local store so you can smell and test them our for yourself first. Good luck :)

  4. Even if you don't like the feel of wool, you pretty much do not have to touch the balls if you don't want to (other than the first time you take them out of the package to put in the dryer).

  6. I know I am kind of dryer ball snob;) but lighter is actually not better. The heavier the better since they will get deep down in to the laundry better!

  9. These are intriguing and I think I would like to try them but even inferring that any wool dryer balls may smell like sheep is a huge turn off

  18. It did not occur to me that wool dryer balls would smell like sheep, but of course that makes sense. I guess I would have to try them out to see how I like them with my laundry.

  19. I currently have these dryer balls and they are AMAZING! They are a big difference from any other I have tried. They work far better because they are 10 times the size! Love them!

  23. These sound great. I hate both the chemicals and the waste in dryer sheets, but just can never find the time to make my own wool balls. I may have to get some of these.

  24. I would love to soften my clothes without chemicals and perfumes. These sound great!

  25. Wow these are interesting. I know this is probably totally stupid, but I didn't realize that the dryer sheets were TOXIC! I mean I figured they weren't the best option for going green and I wouldn't want to eat one, but didn't realize they were toxic!

  26. I am really interested in these, but have not tried them. Can't believe that they really work. They are on my shopping list.

  27. These would be quite handy, when I use dryer sheets, it seems they always end up on the floor somewhere!

  32. How cool! We usually just opt to let our clothes be clingy rather than using the typical dryer sheets, but I would LOVE to not have to do that. :) I love that they cut down drying time too, I didn't realize they would do that!

  33. I got something very similar through a different company and they didn't work at all. I never realized dryer sheets were so bad.

  34. I have a box of woolzies and so far I haven't seen much of a difference in drying time, but I can say that the clothes are as soft as if I had added a fabric softener sheet.

  35. I love my dryer balls!! I love how much they cut my drying time down and the fact that you can add essential oils to make your clothes smell good too!
