I am happy to be working with Woolzies to bring you a giveaway on this stop in the Accessorize Your Stash in August Giveaway Hop! What is Woolzies, you ask? Read on!
The Woolzies brand offers wool dryer balls, which work as a natural fabric softener that last for up to 1,000 loads. I first learned about Woolzies about eighteen months ago - the first time I featured them here on my blog - and I am still using the same dryer balls for my laundry!
If you're wondering why dryer balls are a good idea, there are several reasons. For me, here are the most important:
1. They're free of chemicals.
2. They can be used with cloth diapers.
I had not switched to cloth diapers back when I started using Woolzies, but with about a year of cloth diapering under my belt, I can now confidently say that these dryer balls are an essential in my house. It took me awhile to get used to finding the balls in my dryer or clean laundry every time I pulled clean clothing out of the dryer, but even that is now second nature.
I've heard testimonies from other moms that Woolzies are able to cut down drying time by 25%. For me, that's unfortunately not the case - but I blame my dryer that can't seem to make up its mind, definitely not Woolzies! I did have some pretty big static issues during the winter last year, but those were improved by adding a large ball of foil to my dryer, right alongside the wool dryer balls.
The latest offering from Woolzies are several Essential Oils, which can be used on the "fluff" dryer cycle to add scent to the clean laundry. Available in Lavender, Orange, Lemon, and Eucalyptus Citriodora, these little bottles will likely last even longer than the 1,000 loads of Woolzies. I used to love having scented laundry (back before I became crunchy) - so having the option to add a clean and fresh scent to my finished laundry is delightful.
Woolzies are available for purchase in sets of 3 or 6. A set of 3 is recommended for small loads, while 6 is recommended for large loads. If you're doing extra large loads of laundry (like I usually am), then 8 balls are suggested. A box of 6 is just $23.99! Make sure you follow Woolzies on Facebook or Twitter for all the latest news and updates.
One Director Jewels reader will win a set of Woolzies Dryer Balls! This giveaway will end on August 28 at 11:59pm EST. This giveaway is open to US readers only.
