As some of you may remember me mentioning, our laundry facilities here aren’t the greatest. And of course there’s this issue I have because of my pregnancy that makes me have to do laundry more often than I normally would. It’s irritating working with such a crappy service, but when your nearest relatives live 30 minutes away you just kind of deal.
Wednesday I dug through our piggy bank to find $3 so I could do a load of laundry. I have to admit Mr. Pig was getting kind of heavy, so finding the change wasn’t hard. Someone had been doing laundry all day the day before so I assumed everything was up and running normally. I washed my clothes and I played some video games. The washing machine worked just fine. I then put the clothes in the dryer… no problems yet.
My apartment is right outside the “Clothes Care Center” so I can hear the dryer. I don’t mind this because I know exactly when my clothes are done, or more importantly when someone else is done.
So I take my trusty basket and go to get my clothes. They are totally wet. Not damp like you might expect for a full load containing both jeans and towels, but full on wet. Granted they weren’t soaking, but definitely not wearable. Sadly, his has happened before. Once I spent $6 on one load because I had to dry it 3 times. The maintenance people came out to fix it after I called them, but the refund I was promised never came. I don’t call the maintenance people or waste money anymore.
So I’ve learned to cope with wet clothes. Normally I would take the important stuff and decorate my living room with our clothes. I’d lay work pants across the couch, hang dresses in the bathroom, and line dry towels on the tiny porch out back. However, I knew I had an awesome product coming in the mail and I figured, “might as well try them out.”
Friday I washed the clothes again. (They’d been sitting in the basket for two days and another round in the wash was necessary. Also I added some tea tree oil just in case.) When they were finished I moved them to the dryer. Before starting it up I ran inside to grab my awesome 6-pack of Woolzies Dryer Balls.
I was amazed at first by how big they were. I’ve used wool dryer balls before, but Woolzies are much bigger in comparison! I also really appreciated how these dryer balls also serve as a fabric softener. All in one efficiency. I can definitely deal with that.
I put them all in there, just like the directions said to. I was concerned they might bounce around too much, but I couldn’t hear it so I assumed it wasn’t a bother.
(I don’t sort my laundry… I’m horrible, I know.)
I went to check on my clothes before the dryer stopped. Not only was I impatient for the results, but I would have had to run to the store for more change because I was running low on quarters. To my surprise my clothes were finished drying! Woolzies are definitely my new go-to dryer balls. If they can make laundry easier in my complex, than they can help out any household for sure.
Each box of WOOLZIES contains 6 handmade woolen dryer balls. The cost per box is $34.95 with FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the USA including Alaska and Hawaii.
I feel like I don’t have to stress out so much about laundry now. It’s such a relief!
