The Natural Fabric Softener
Hello to my awesome readers!!!
Back to school time and here I am with a pile of laundry a mile high already. School clothes being separated from play clothes means even more laundry... UGH never ending! I have decided that even though making my own laundry detergent is quite cheap I still cannot seem to measure worth a flip. Not to mention the kids help with their own laundry and it becomes a slippery war zone in my laundry room due to all the spills. I have tried and decided I will be using those little pre-measured packs of laundry soap. They clean very well and when it says 18, 50, or 96 (whatever) loads.... That is how many you get. Throw one in and your done! How easy is that?
OK so the next step was fabric softener..... buy, make, measure, pour, and spill.....
Nothing but waste of time and money...
I thought about dryer sheets but you have to keep buying and buying and buying those too and then we throw in 2 or 3 per load because we just don't know if one would cut it.
I have replaced my liquid fabric softener with these Woolzies Dryer Balls.
They are guaranteed to last for 1000 loads.
They look like a very simple concept.... Balls Handmade from New Zealand Wool.
All you do is place these balls into your dryer with the clothes and turn it on.
You buy them once and reuse them over and over! Mine just stay in the dryer and when we throw the clothes in they are already there and no need to do anything else. Then as the clothes tumble in the dryer they bounce around and along with softening the clothes naturally and reducing static, they also reduce drying time! It used to take my clothes the full 60 minutes to fully dry but now we can set the dryer on about 45 minutes and they are dry! Saves on electricity as well as cost of buying more product every week or month.
Oh yeah, and did I mention they are 100% Eco Friendly? Well they are! 100% pure wool, and chemical free. These Woolzies are hypoallergenic so they are safe for people with sensitivities as well.
I am continuing to use these on our clothes everyday and they seem to do just as well as liquid fabric softener aside from the lack of scent. That is kind of expected though when you have all natural products with no chemicals...
Overall, I am really enjoying the savings we are seeing!!!
Guess what else?
