Woolzies Dryer Balls Giveaway

You all know how much I love green products.  Anything that makes my home more energy efficient brings my heart energy too - I seriously get excited it.  So I was eager to put the Woolzies dryer balls, made from fine New Zealand wool, to the test.  They are a natural fabric softener guaranteed to last for at least 1,000 loads of laundry.

If you've been following my blog for a while, you know that Cort is prone to eczema.  I have to be extremely careful to avoid any chemicals or perfumes in the laundry.  Well Woolzies are hypoallergenic, chemical free, and ecofriendly.  They didn't aggravate Cort's sensitive skin at all.  And even better - they significantly reduced the amount of static in my laundry.  I even had a "heavy static" load in (two flannel shirts, some flannel pjs) and when I took it out to put in the laundry basket I didn't notice the typical crackling of static that I usually do this time of year.  That made me quite happy.  The dryer balls also reduce drying time by 25% - which means you will save on energy in the long run.  Plus, you are reducing your carbon footprint by not using all those dryer sheets! 

Overall, I was super impressed with these high quality dryer balls.  I have used some plastic dryer balls for a while now, but I felt like these were much more effective in reducing static, and I love that they last for so long.  I think they'd make a wonderful gift for someone cloth diapering a baby or moving into a new home! 

Want to win a set?  Woolzies is giving away a set to one lucky reader!  Just click on the Rafflecopter giveaway to enter.

Well, I'm not sure if this GA. is open internationally, but I'm entering too. I hate static, and lately it seems everything I touch goes boom! Even when I open the car door sometimes "zbing" my fingers go.. hate it!

Heather said...

The fact that they reduce drying time by 25% is amazing. I have been wanting to try something like this. We don't use dryer sheets at all, but in the winter we do deal with static quite a bit (we wear a lot of fleece here!) Thanks for the chance to win a great product!
