Frequently Asked Questions about WOOLZIES®
Q1: What are WOOLZIES and how do they benefit me and the environment?
A: Regular fabric softeners, both in liquid and sheet form, contain numerous harsh chemicals which are toxic to the environment and even more dangerous to many people who have serious allergic reactions to them. The elderly, ailing and small children can suffer from a variety of negative symptoms which are really just allergic reactions to the harsh chemicals contained in these commercial fabric softening products.
Additionally, because WOOLZIES bounce around in your dryer, they naturally separate and create space between your laundry, thereby allowing the hot dryer air to circulate better and subsequently cutting down on drying time by about 25% in large loads and as much as 35-40% in small loads. This of course saves both time and money for you and energy for the environment.
The 6 WOOLZIES dryer balls contained in every box that we sell are enough for a small. medium or large load. If you are drying an extra large load, we recommend using 8 dryer balls.
Q2: How long will my WOOLZIES last?
A: WOOLZIES are guaranteed to last for 1,000 loads or your money back.
Q3: If I have an allergy to wool, can I still use WOOLZIES?
A: Yes! Absolutely! Since the wool is not directly touching your skin and does not shed, everyone can use WOOLZIES without any allergic reactions.
Q4: Why are WOOLZIES better than rubber/plastic/tennis balls in the dryer?
A: Rubber and plastic balls are made from harsh chemicals including PVCs which are released onto your laundry by the hot dryer air. Not only are these types of dryer balls dangerous to your health, they are toxic to the environment as well. Additionally, the harsh tumbling action of rubber, plastic and tennis balls can damage your dryer's sensitive electronic sensors. Finally, some of these types of balls may even melt slightly and cause fabric staining.
Q5: Why do the dryer balls seem to each vary slightly in size, shape and texture?
A: Our dryer balls are completely handmade. They are not mass produced by machine. Therefore you will notice variations in size, color and texture.
P.S. Did you know that many commercial dryer liquids and sheets contain chemicals that destroy the fire retardant qualities of children's and adult's clothing?!
