Thursday Thoughts: Woolzies Giveaway

Have you ever learned a new word, then noticed it in practically every conversation you had and article you read?  Recently I had the same experience, except instead of new vocabulary, I learned a new laundry method.

One of my facebook friends posted her surprise in a laundry care label which mentioned drying the item with tennis balls.  Then I read an article which also suggested tennis balls in the dryer, to fluff the clothing and speed up the drying time.  I considered purchasing tennis balls, but then I learned of an even better solution:  Woolzies.

Woolzies are simply balls of wool, which, when added to the dryer, help eliminate static and also decrease the time required in the dryer.  The Woolzies company recently sent me a box of Woolzies to try.  With the plumbing problems I've had--both we and the plumbers are really hoping that the project is finished today!--I haven't been able to do a thorough job of testing, but I have used the balls for two small, hand-washed loads.  Both loads dried quickly and without static cling.  I thought that perhaps the dryer would be especially noisy, but it really wasn't.

Even the packaging makes me smile.


I like the fact that Woolzies are a chemical-free alternative to fabric softener sheets, and I'm looking forward to using these all-natural wool balls for many loads to come.  (The information sheet sent with them says they will last for 1000 loads!)

The Woolzies company has generously offered to send one lucky reader a box of Woolzies.  To enter this giveaway, simply comment on this blog post.  I will use a random number generator to pick a winner next Wednesday, February 6th, at 9:00 p.m. Pacific time and will announce the winner on Thursday, February 7th.  Good luck!
Thanks for modern laundry conveniences.

  4. I've never heard of these! But the sound very good! Even with dryer sheets, there is so much static in our air right now, everything sticks together! lol Maybe this is the solution for that winter static frenzy!

  5. Our dryer takes twice as long to dry the clothes as our washer takes to wash them. Pick me! Pick me! Oh, I can't wait for warmer weather, when I can get my clothes back outside on the line where they belong.

  8. Sounds like a great alternative to dryer sheets. I don't like the smell and the ones which are scentless don't really do a very good job.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
