asked questions, or ask one of your own.
How do Woolzies dryer balls work?
Woolzies dryer balls bounce around inside the dryer creating space between your laundry items. This allows the hot air to circulate, reducing drying time and saving you electricity and money.
How are Woolzies dryer balls better than rubber/plastic dryer balls?
Woolzies dryer balls have a few advantages. Rubber and plastic balls are made from harsh chemicals which are released into your laundry by the hot air and are dangerous to your health and the environment. Additionally, rubber, plastic, and other heavier dryer balls may damage your dryer. Woolzies dryer balls are environmentally friendly as they are chemical-free. They are also quieter and produce less static build up.
How are Woolzies dryer balls better than traditional fabric softeners?
Conventional fabric softeners contain chemicals toxic to the environment and can be dangerous for people with sensitive skin and chemical allergies as they coat your clothes. Our dryer balls are chemical-free and made with organic wool.
Should I use the dryer balls instead of regular dryer sheets?
Yes, we suggest using our dryer balls instead of dryer sheets because they are natural and chemical-free. If you want to add a scent to your laundry, add a few drops of Woolzies essential oils to the dryer balls.

What is the shelf life of Woolzies essential oils?
Any essential oils and essential oil products generally have a shelf life of a few years, especially when kept in air-tight bottles away from direct sunlight. We have them in dark blue bottles to maintain the integrity of the oils. After a few years, they will start losing their potency and effectiveness, but will not go bad or rancid.
Can the Woolzies essential oils be used for candle making?
Can I use the essential oils with my Woolzies dryer balls?
Yes, essential oils pair very well with our dryer balls. The best way to use them is to add 2-5 drops of your desired essential oil to the dryer balls and put them in the dryer after your clothes have already been dried. Run the dryer again on an Air Fluff (non-heated) cycle for 10 minutes and your laundry will come out smelling amazing and fresh. The reason we suggest using a non-heated cycle is that the heat of the dryer can destroy the scent of the essential oils.

We also discourage allowing pets to lick your skin following the application of our products.
Is it safe to diffuse essential oils in a room with pets around?
Animals have a higher sensitivity to smell than humans, so we advise you to proceed with caution. Use smaller amounts of oils (1-3 drops) if your pets are in the room, keep the space well ventilated, and keep the door open so your animal can exit easily. Keep an eye on your pet and take note of any changes in behavior.
Avoid diffusing essential oils in the presence of very small pets or animals that are in cages or enclosures.
