I'm not new to wool dryer balls. I needed a new set and decided to purchase these. They do the job but do have a bit of a pong about them. Dare I say the smell is a bit farm yard. As they used the smell is diminishing but if you find the smell off putting note it does transfer a little to your clothes. They do however speed up drying time which is a bonus on many front.

love them!! they make my babies clothes alot softer! i use only organic washing powder with no conditioner! this makes them just as soft as using conditioner! once clothes are dry, i put a few drops of essential oils on the wool balls and put the drier on a cool 'freshen up' spin, makes the clothes smell divine and same for the house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth chasing across the utility room floor!!! (has updates) 23 Dec. 2012

I waited a full year before writing this review, even though I was thoroughly impressed with Woolzies XL the very first week. These babies really do work! Will they improve your dryer's performance? ... YES. Will they totally eliminate *all* static in your laundry? ... NO, but dryer sheets won't either, and the sheets don't help the clothes get dry faster.

I dry approximately 10 loads a week. After a year of use, the Woolzies have a few pills and one even has a small chunk missing thanks to my dog who chases and retrieves balls much more efficiently than I. The Woolzies utilize escape tactics when you're removing laundry from the dryer, but they are well worth chasing across the floor between loads. Your skills of keeping them contained will improve once you learn their tactics. Although not a pretty as they once were, the Woolzies are still fully functional and look as though they will go another year. (see the photo I've uploaded of a new Woolzie next to my originals that are 18 months old). One reviewer mentioned that they will get in the corners of sheets, etc., which is true, but it does not stop them from tumbling around -- they just take the sheet with them. They will fall in and out of sheet corners many times during a cycle.

Even though my dryer has the sensor that is supposed to end the drying cycle only after the contents are actually dry, it never seemed to work out that way. Unless I was drying microfleece or very thin knits, my clothes and other laundry was never completely dry when the dryer stopped. If I were drying jeans or towels, it was not unusual to run the dryer 2 or 3 times before achieving total dryness. It NEVER happens anymore. No matter how heavy or thick the load, the laundry is dry when the buzzer goes off. The clothes are beautifully wrinkle free as well. Polyester knits still have static issues if the weather is really dry (which rarely happens in Louisiana), but a can of Static Guard Static Cling Spray, Fresh Scent, 5.5 oz. kept nearby takes care of the occasional clinging issue.

Overall, I know without a doubt that I have saved enough to pay for these several times over, when you figure electricity and the elimination of dryer sheets from my shopping list. These are much better than the competing brands, especially the little plastic ones with bumps, which crack fairly quickly and make a lot of noise bouncing around. These only produce little muffled thunks, instead of steady thuds (you get used to it pretty quickly and the sound disappears into white noise). I recommend these wholeheartedly and they also make a wonderful gift.

***UPDATE***: Eighteen months into my use of Woolzies, I got a new HUGE dryer, so I purchased another set of Woolzies to throw in with the old ones. I uploaded a photo which shows exactly what an old, heavily used Woolzie ball looks like next to a brand new one that has never been used. The box that contained my new Woolzies actually reads that the pilling on the Woolzies help them work even better. I'm not removing the pills!

FINAL UPDATE: After four years and thousands of loads, I am starting to retire the original Woolzies. With the large capacity of the dryer, I use 18. The original balls are very loosely bound, and many started to unravel. My cat really enjoys batting them around, and doing the final unraveling. I then cut them into pieces and use them as part of the stuffing for pet beds. Nothing goes to waste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these things 8 Aug. 2012

Having used these for several months now, I am very pleased with the Woolzies as a replacement for dryer sheets. Here's my experience in a nutshell...
1) They are only somewhat effective in controlling static with big bulky items such as heavy blankets. I assume this is because the bulky items ball up tight and the woolzies aren't bouncing around inside them like they do with smaller items that tumble freely. I have, however, noticed that the static has already disappeared as soon as I am done removing the item from the dryer, which doesn't normally happen. So, not much to complain about anyway.
2) If you're in a hurry, it can be a little annoying to have to find and remove the Woolzies out of pant legs and sleeves and pillowcases as you're unloading the dryer.
3) Your dogs will want these. They will want them bad.
1) With clothing, towels, and regular (i.e. non big heavy blankie)laundry items, the Woolzies have been every bit as effective in controlling static as the dryer sheets I was using. The items also come out soft.
2) When I bought these I was worried they would collect dog hair in the dryer, but they don't.
3) These are eco-friendly, I no longer get the itchies from chemical product allergies, and they are much more economical than dryer sheets over time.

In summary, I recommend this product. Like any product, expectations need to be realistic. I may decide to buy a box of dryer sheets to use once in a blue moon with my big heavy fuzzy polyester/acrylic blanket because it tends to come out staticky, but I don't need or want dryer sheets for anything else anymore. I intend to buy Woolzies for some of my family for Christmas this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love them! 2 Feb. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I got these because there was a good deal on them and thought of gifting them since I already had 6 that I got off of etsy. When I saw these I realized how much better they were in quality vs. my other ones. I added them to my dyer and they do a better job with the static than the other ones, have more weight to them so I do hear them thumping very quietly in there now and I can see the difference.
The box gives you instructions on how to recharge the static-resisting qualities which was very useful information and I plan on recharging my etsy ones this weekend.

1.0 out of 5 stars An environmentally safe way to ruin some of your clothing 8 Feb. 2015

I give the theory five stars and execution one. My experience was terrible. I was excited to try these and expected to never use dryer sheets again after reading so many glowing reviews. My main complaint -- and warning (similar to some other posters) -- is if you use these with polyester or polyester-blend clothing, be ready for pills -- big time! I had a brand new dress that I wore once. The first time I laundered it, it came out of the washer looking just fine. I threw it in the dryer with the rest of the load (similar dark, lighter-weight clothing like shirts, blouses and another dress.) The dress is 52% rayon, 44% polyester and 4% spandex, feels soft and drapes nicely and is a dark maroon and black. Imagine my shock and frustration when I pulled it from the dryer and it was completely covered in dark gray pills. Have you ever had a well-worn pair of pants or an old sweater that after years of use produced a whole colony of pills from the continual friction of the fabric? Well, the Woolzies had that effect on this entire dress and it only took them 20 minutes in the dryer rather than years of wear. Nor did they shake or brush off; they were attached like Velcro. There was no way to pick them all off since the whole dress -- long (mid-calf) with long sleeves and gathered fabric -- was covered in them. If I had not liked the dress so much and it had not been brand new I probably would have given it to Goodwill. Thankfully, I have a Gleener (hand-held lint brush on one end and interchangeable blade-like scraper on the other). I had not used it much prior to this experience, but, boy, did it pay for itself that day. It took me 30 minutes and because the material was soft and rather stretchy, I had to wrap sections of the dress around a rolled up bath towel in order to make the surface flat and sturdy enough for the scraper to work and then to comb all the fabric with the lint brush. My other dress and some of the shirts had the same problem, but not as severe. That was it. I tried the Woolzies a few more times, but only with heavy, 100% cotton items. After seeing how determined the Woolzies were to collect fuzz balls from the jeans and darks in one load and happily deposit them on the towels in another, I banished them from the laundry room. This was after using them in about 6 loads of clothes, so it wasn't like they had months of fuzz accumulation on them. They did zip as far as softening and the static cling was worse than if I had used nothing. I am glad they seem to work for so many people. I'm all for less chemicals in the environment. I have since washed and dried that new dress twice without pummeling it with dryer balls and never again had the fabric pill. The dress may have narrowly escaped going to Goodwill; the Woolzies did not.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite household purchases EVER! 17 Mar. 2012
By Paisley's Mommy - Published on

These softball-sized dryer balls are amazing! I was specifically looking for dryer balls to aid in the drying of our king-sized comforter. In the past, I had put the comforter through 2-3 dryer cycles. I only had to use one dryer cycle using all 6 Woolzies. I love that they are all natural, so they do not release chemicals onto my clothes like dryer sheets and rubber/plastic dryer balls. I HIGHLY recommend this product!
