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: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
