Wool Dryer Balls Review and Giveaway

CLOSED

Winner- #39 Nikki
Wool Dryer Balls
There are a number of reasons today that people are going more natural and using less chemicals. One is that a number of the chemicals are harsh on our skin and I am one of those people who has to be careful. Using chemical free products help the whole family. My son is still in cloth diapers and I have to be very careful what I use to wash them. My daughter and husband don't have any skin sensitivities but everyone could use less chemicals in there laundry.
Wool Dryer Balls are the natural solution for softening your clothes without chemicals. Made completely from US wool, they help your clothes (and cloth diapers!) tumble dry softly, and reduce the drying time by up to half.

I have an older washer and dryer and I wasn't sure that anything would help. I tried using the Wool Dryer Balls for a few weeks and I still had a lot of dry time but my clothes did come out a lot softer even without dryer sheets. I wrote the company and asked them about my problem with my long dry time as these wool dryer balls are suppose to be more economical by cutting the amount of dryer time. They wrote me back and said that with an older washer and dryer you can put your clothes on an extra spin cycle and medium heat in the dryer and your clothes should dry faster. It definitely did help, I think with an old washer and dryer you just have to do your best. This product would definitely work better with a sensor dryer. A sensor dry would tell you when the clothes were dry instead of doing a full cycle. Maybe I can ask my husband for a new washer dryer set for Christmas!

All in all I was extremely satisfied with the people at The Willow Store and their product. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking a natural laundry solution that is not only easy on your skin but easy on your wallet. You can purchase Wool Dryer Balls and more natural products via The Willow Store.

  1. my best laundry tip is VINEGAR! I love the stuff. I add a 1/2 cup to the wash cycle and it completely eliminates the need for the dryer sheets. It takes out all static in laundry and it's much safer for the environment, and machine!

  2. My best laundry tip is to wash dark clothing inside out so it doesn't fade so much - especially black!

  8. My fave laundry tip is put a sheet into the washer if you have a small load. It keeps the washer from dancing around.

  53. Wash wools and silks by hand using a little bit of dish detergent, like Dawn, dissolved in water. It is as surfactant and will lift out stains.
