Woolzies Dryer Balls Review & Give Away!

Woolzies Dryer Balls Review and Giveaway (Cloth Diaper Addicts)Yesterday, I announced on my Facebook and on Cloth for a Cause that if I got up to 900 fans, I’d give away a diaper and do a cash donation to the Prince George chapter of Cloth for a Cause.  I didn’t get there.  But I got really, really close.  So let’s do another giveaway that I’ve been meaning to get started: let’s do some Woozlies dryer balls!

Last month, I got a package of Woolzies dryer balls for a review.  I’ve been using them faithfully with my cloth diapers and I love them.

Woolzies Dryer Balls are environmentally friendly

Woolzies Dryer Balls are made of pure wool.  That means that they are a renewable resource and are all natural.  Unlike other products or tennis, they don’t contain any sort of chemicals to break down.  There’s no off-gassing onto your laundry.  There is nothing to throw in the landfill.  At a thousand loads, they last pretty much forever.  Plus, Woolzies do an amazing job of shortening drying time.  According to their website, Woolzies dryer balls can reduce drying time by 25% in large loads and up to 40% in smaller loads.  I didn’t do the math, but I can tell you that my cloth diaper inserts are drying much faster with Woolzies dryer balls in the mix!

Woolzies Dryer Balls are a Small Family Business

I really like to support small businesses, particularly family owned ones in the US and Canada.  When you support a small business, you are directly supporting individuals rather than large and faceless shareholders.  The family that owns Woolzies dryer balls lives in the Hudson Valley region of New York State.  As an environmentally conscious family business, they are a group that I can feel good about giving my money.

Woolzies Dryer Balls supports women

Woolzies Dryer Balls are handmade by women in Nepal.  That means that they are giving women a way to support themselves and their families.  You’re also supporting a developing economy in a democratic country.  How awesome is that?

How Can You Get Woolzies Dryer Balls?

You can order them from authorized resellers, directly from Woolzies, and you can fill out the Rafflecopter form below to win a set!

The Great Canadian Cloth Diaper Giveaway!

You could have this super awesome Charlie Banana diaper for your stash! See terms and conditions at the bottom of the Rafflecopter form

When you think of Canada, what do you think of?  Home?  Maple leaves?  Health care?  Hockey?  Tim Horton’s?

All of these things are distinctly Canadian.  So is this giveaway!  You can enter for a chance to win a Charlie Banana one size cloth diaper in Maple, a pair of I Heart Canada BabyLegs, and a $5 gift card to Tim Horton’s!

This diaper is completely awesome.  Your baby can be in style and show off Canadian pride with the maple leaf on his bum (not his butt; this is Canada!) and keep his legs warm in the winter coming up with I Heart Canada BabyLegs.  Even better, that Canadian pride will be in a Charlie Banana pocket diaper!

Charlie Banana pocket diapers are fantastic.  They are adjustable in the legs with an elastic instead of in the rise with snaps.  This leads to a cleaner looking diaper and less accidental adjustments.  The diaper also comes with two microfiber inserts (newborn size and infant size) so that you can have the right length insert for your baby’s size and even double stuff for extra protection on those heavy wetters when necessary.  Not only that, but Charlie Banana also sells disposable, biodegradable inserts so you can keep using your favorite diapers on the go.

The Maple pattern is a limited edition Charlie Banana print available only in Canada.  Did you miss your chance to get one from your cloth diaper store of choice?  No worries.  Now you can enter to win a Maple print Charlie banana of your very own.  All you need to do is fill out the Rafflecopter form below and live in Canada ONLY.  But remember, the winner will be verified.  Good luck and have fun.  And while you’re at it, take a tour of Cloth Diaper Addicts and visit Cozy Bums, our sponsor.
