So...while we were talking about my upcoming "favorite cloth accessories" post I mentioned to Jeni that the cloth diaper accessory that I wish I had but have never gotten was wool dryer balls. Well, she offered to give me a set of Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls to review and then give away!
Well, after a little over a week of using them I'm not sure I really want to give them away! Wool dryer balls are most commonly used to reduce drying time, therefore saving you money through reducing your energy bills and extending the life of your dryer. And I agree they did reduce my drying time, I would say by about 10-20%, depending on what I was washing (please note, I have a very old washer that leaves the clothes quite damp so you will likely get better results than I did). But what I love MOST is that they made our clothes and diapers so much softer! I don't use fabric softener or dryer sheets for several reasons 1) I always forget to put them in, 2) I don't want to risk absentmindedly putting them in with a load of diapers and 3) because they cost money. So I am LOVING that the dryer balls bounce around and soften up my laundry by keeping it from bunching up or sticking to the sides of the dryer! And they reduce static.
Since I promised to give this set away I will definitely be buying a set of my own soon.
If you would like to purchase a set of your own please visit Jeni's Norwex page or contact her on Facebook.
But first...you can enter to win these! Let's be clear, I am giving away THIS set of dryer balls, they are not new in the package, they have been through the dryer with my laundry about 15 times. I have wild, sometimes dirty little boys and I have 2 small dogs. I wash my laundry in either Tide or homemade detergent. So...please don't enter unless you understand you are getting THIS set of dryer balls (I will put them back in the original box before sending them). They should last a total of about 1000 cycles so after around 15 at my house they have PLENTY of life left in them. They have linted up a bit but that is normal and actually good, it increases their surface area.
