Buddha Bunz Wool Dryer Balls Review and Giveaway

facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

****CONTEST CLOSED. WINNER CHOSEN!****

CONGRATULATIONS, KRIS I.!

Honestly, I never really understood this love for wool dryer balls.  I’m curious who the person is who came up with the whole idea.

Did they one day say to themselves, “hmmm, what should I do with this crazy wool collection I have.  Ah! I’ll wrap it into a ball and toss it in the dryer to help evenly dry my clothes, cut down on static and speed up the whole process!”

If they thought that, then they certainly deserve an award or something.  I would have never come up with the idea.

So, why use a wool dryer ball?

1) They bounce around your dryer (basically pounding your clothes and diapers) thereby keeping your laundry soft.

2) They bounce around your dryer (…) thereby separating the items and decreasing the drying time.

A month ago, Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique sent me 4 Buddha Bunz Wool Dryer balls to try out.  I have been using them in every load and I have definitely noticed that the clothes are softer.  Beth did tell me that the Buddha Bunz wahm suggests 8 for extra large loads…which is pretty much every one of my loads.

Because of this I haven’t noticed a decrease in drying time BUT I do have a new dryer and I don’t think I have the thing figured out.  I thought it’d be the washer I’d have issues with!

Another very slight effect of using dryer balls is a minimal decrease in static.  I feel like this has been a big improvement for me.  Athletic shorts don’t stick to everything in the load and you don’t hear that crackle that I use to hear.

Over the course of a year the price of 4-8 Buddha Bunz dryer balls would be worth it.  If you are currently using dryer sheets and/or fabric softener (not good for cloth diapers unless you are using a safe brand) then you will see the savings quickly.

On a slightly different note, while I was looking for the Buddha Bunz dryer balls on Sweetbottoms Baby I discovered a very neat program that she has.  It’s called the Newborn Diaper Rental program. I *highly* encourage you to check it out if you are expecting.  If I didn’t have so many newborn diapers already I might have done it myself!

    Honestly, I was just about to place an order at this website anyways. I will be ordering 1 of the Bumboo Bamboo/Silk diapers in a size 2, an Aristocrats Wool Soaker, and 1 Eucalan No Rinse Wool Wash – 3.3 oz in Lavender. If I had no budget, I would probably get about 18 of those diapers with 3-4 of the Aristocrats Wool Soakers, a couple of the Loveybums Pull-Up Wool Covers, 4-8 of the Buddha Bunz Wool Dryer Balls, a few of the Thirsties Duo Wraps to try out (because I’ve heard they’re so great), a Planet Wise Wipe Pouch (comes with 10 wipes), a medium Planet Wise Wet Bag in Playful Paisley, a LuSa Organics Baby Wipe Juice, and a Wrapsody Wraps by Gypsy Mama (because I’ve been dying to try one out!). I could go on and on (I am new to CDing becuase I had a resistant hubby at first – he is newly converted) and would like to probably try at least one of everything in the store just to know what all the different things are like. But this list is what I’d start with ;-)

    I am going to guess that you are going to try mama cloth after this baby is born.. Is that what you bought??? I see they have some. I tried mama cloth and am hooked! No irritation from the disposable pads!! I am not planning to ever go back to disposable pads!! Autumn, if you havnt tried them you seriously should think about it! I started using liners while pregnant and was pretty impressed! Made my own. Made my own PP mama cloth and am trying to convert my sister too. Now I am working on a regular period stash for later on when AF comes back. sorry if TMI but I really think you should look into it if you havnt already!! Ok.. this was way longer then I thought.. haha sorry!
