I have had the pleasure of trying out a set of Woolzies. I line dry a good portion of my laundry, but I always dry my comforters and sheets. Which, might I add, takes FOREVER (or at least it feels that way). So I figure what a way to try them out. They are supposed to help reduce drying time. Insert happy dance. I have tried dryer balls before and they help, but are noisy and for some reason my dog loves them. Needless to say, I was thrilled to have a new set and excited to try these out.
~Due to some major technical difficulties (can’t find my camera), I had to grab my images from the company’s site.
I received an awesome looking box, with 6 Woolzies in it. They are balls of natural wool that are supposed to decrease drying time and be a natural fabric softener.
Round 1 – So since we are drying our king size comforter, I decide to try them out. I am not impressed. The comforter took no less time to dry and I had to chase the balls around as I pulled it out.
Round 2 – I decided to try them again, to see if maybe they get better with each use. To my surprise, yes. This next comforter dried faster and was fluffier than usual. I am thrilled.
Round 3 – I was drying the same comforter as Round 1, and this time I did notice a difference. It really does seem, at least to me that they do get better with use.
I love not having to use fabric softeners on my comforters. I don’t have to worry about chemicals and my infant. Plus, you can’t really hear them in the dryer.
