ReusaWool Dryer Balls Review + Giveaway

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

I’m always doing my best to live as “green” as possible. I know I could do much better, but I believe that as long as I am doing my part and making an effort in as many ways as I can, that I’m helping our planet.

I used to try to air dry all of my laundry, especially when I was doing 3 or 4 cloth diaper loads a week. I’ve let that fall by the wayside more or less, depending on time and energy in the summer, but I have found new ways to help save at least some energy while doing my laundry: ReusaWool Dryer Balls.

Have you heard of wool dryer balls before? They can help reduce drying time by absorbing some of the wetness. They also reduce static and increase softness of clothes. They can reduce the drying time by up to 50% because they pick up a small amount of moisture at the beginning of the cycle and release it during the the rest of the cycle which helps your clothes dry more evenly. They also increase the mechanical action of your dryer to increase circulation and dry your clothes faster. And even better? They’re made here in the US. You may have seen plastic dryer balls before; wool balls are safer for your dryer and your clothing and don’t give off any gas chemicals.

Simply drop 2 or 3 in your dryer with your load of wet clothes and start it up. These balls last for years and eliminate the need for dryer sheets. The balls I received are in a natural color, but you can find a wide variety of dyed colors, if color is your thing, at WillowPads.com. The dye is fiber reactive and won’t stain clothing (I like Dragonberry and Grape the best!).

I’d love for one lucky winner to take home their own 3 pack of ReusaWool Dryer Balls. Contest ends 2/10/14 at 11:59pm MST and is open to US residents.

    I have been using some homemade dryer balls and they are okay. I would really prefer to use wool ones. We’ve started cutting back use of bottled water and I try to recycle or repurpose all of the bottles. I volunteer with the recycling center in town once a month. I never throw away anything I can reuse, especially glass jars of all sizes. I DIY almost all of our cleaning supplies and many of our hygeine products, such as shampoo, conditioner, detangler, facial cleansers and moisturizers, body wash, lotions, deodorants, etc. I also make sample sizes for anyone I talk to that is interested (or can’t afford to invest for a trial use) and use those extra glass jars for that. I make my own laundry soap and regularly share it with family and friends who need it. I use a liquid castile soap concoction for my carpet shampoo and it works better than anything I’ve ever purchased. Also make dishwasher detergent… Can’t think of other stuff right now, but there’s more. 🙂

    We wash in cold water and hang dry all shirts and delicates, we recycle, we shut the water off while brush teeth, only run a full load of dishes in the dishwasher, use many natural cleaners around the house and use our reusable grocery bags.

    we try to do everything possible.

    i shut the water off while scrubbing dishes, brushing my teeth, lathering my hands.
    we try to keep the utility bills down not only to save money, but help the environment.
    we recycle.
    we re-use items — BBW soap bottles, pill bottles, toilet paper rolls, etc.
    we use hand towels to dry our hands, not paper towels.
    we use eco-friendly products.

    thanks!!
