All-Natural Care for your Clothes @Woolzies {#Giveaway} WW, 03/18

Woolzies Logo Since the kids came along, our electrical bills have increased by 40%!?

That's a lot for a single-income family.

The culprit, Laundry!

Non-existent potty training, arts and crafts and cloth towels all contribute to the load.

That's why I was excited to try out Woolzies All-Natural Softener Dryer Balls and kill three birds with one stone.

Save Money.
Use All-Natural Products.
Minimize Carbon Footprint.

Woolzies are pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls that soften your laundry naturally without any of the chemicals of conventional fabric softeners. Unlike the plastic dryer balls, they are PVC free and won't fall apart or melt on you. Woolzies save time and energy by cutting down on drying time by an average of 25% per load. They also help reduce static and wrinkles.

Seeing as a box costs $34.95USD, contains six balls and is guaranteed to last 1,000 laundry loads, that is a significant cost savings over traditional fabric softeners. The "static reduction" quality of the balls is even rechargeable by running through the wash cycle!

Woolzies Dryer Balls Each of the balls were a bit irregular in shape and size. This made me smile as it reminded me that this was a handmade product and nature doesn’t always follow the rules.

If you're allergic to wool, Woolzies never comes into direct contact with your skin, and the balls do not shed.

If you have allergies or skin sensitivities, you can thank Woolzies for offering you a chemical free option.

It was interesting to learn how the weight of the Woolzies balls naturally "fluffs up" your laundry, aiding in separating the items (from themselves and one another) and in turn, reducing dryer time. I definitely noticed the difference in time, that the clothes were soft and there was not a hint of static cling!

Less dryer time = Minimized footprint.

I think that the kids will enjoy helping with the laundry even more now that we have Woolzies as part of the equation. They had fun "throwing" the balls into the dryer before we started the load. Any way to entice more help around the house is a win for me!

Woolzies Gift Wrapping An added bonus is that you can have the dryer balls wrapped for the small sum of $5!

Be sure to connect with Woolzies via their Website, Facebook and Twitter.

Now for the best part! Woolzies is giving away a six pack of balls to one lucky Journeys of The Zoo follower!
