One of those "difficulties" we have had in our transition has been dryer sheets. My husband is obsessed with them. I hate them mostly because I know how terrible they are for the environment and wasteful. Initially I would even try to get him to save them after each load to be reused as many times as possible. They can even be used to cleaning different things around your home like TV or computer screens.
Thankfully Woolzies contacted me and asked if we would complete a review. I recently just had an opportunity to complete a review of a similar product so this was interesting to check out the differences as well as see which one Kevin liked better. "Woolzies are pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls". They are chemical free as well as PVC free and hypo-allergenic. They are even safe for people with wool sensitivities which is unexpected from something called a woolzie!
Being that I have such sensitive skin, I hate the fact that disposable dryer sheets work by leaving residue all over your clothes to avoid the static build up. All this tells me is I have yet another chemical to worry about having some sort of reaction to. Woolzies even last for a thousand loads so I don't have to worry about running out or spending a ton of money on nothing but waste.
The residue that covers your clothes can also clog your dryer vents and sensors which makes your dryer work harder. There have been days where my machine seems to constantly run with clothes that are already dry inside and I am sure this is because my husband uses disposable sheets. If you are trying to save energy and prolong the health of your machines, this is something you may want to look into.
"Woolzies save time and energy by cutting down on drying time by an average of 25% per load." I thought these worked great! We have washed over 20 loads so far with only one of the Woolzie Balls and noticed that only the first load come out staticky. But each one after has been fine and seems to run my dryer for a shorter time as well!
Cost: $34.95 Six Pack of Dryer Balls

Recommendation: Don't look at the cost because when broken down these balls are very cheap. Woolzies are extremely safe and healthy for both the environment and your family. I would recommend definitely purchasing these if you don't already have an eco-friendly alternative.
