It’s another give away! Delight.com wants to spread some eco-friendly laundry love and would like to send Nellie’s Dryerballs to six winners. But listen to this, since Delight is all about giving gifts each winner will receive two sets of Nellie’s Dryerballs, one for themselves and one to give to a friend. How sweet.
Delight send me a set of Nellie’s Dryerballs to try out for myself and I’m heartily impressed. Previously whenever I would do a load of kitchen towels I wouldn’t use dryer sheets since I don’t want a fresh scent transferring onto my hands just before I slice a green pepper. I was used to the kitchen towels either coming out fantastically statically charged, or with a few that got stuck in the middle of a tangle and are still damp. With the dryerballs however, the towels were dry and fluffy and didn’t have any chemical scents on them. My socks, shirts and jeans all came out wrinkle free and soft without using chemicals that coat the surface of the fibers.
I also washed two pillows – one firm and springy, and the other limp yet puffy filled with a down alternative. I threw them in the dryer with the dryerballs and they emerged surprisingly quickly, dry all the way through and fluffier than when they went in. I’m thrilled with how well the dryerballs worked on these, and might get up the courage to wash and dry my down comforter at home.
I expected Nellie’s Dryerballs to dissipate static cling, but I wasn’t expecting them to make my laundry so fluffy or get it to dry faster. I’m very pleased with how well they work. The only downside to the dryerballs is that they are a bit loud in the dryer when you are doing smaller loads, but this is a tiny thing when you think about never having to buy dryer sheets again. We’ve been using them for less than a week and already they just stay in our dryer all ready to go. The balls themselves are ovoid, so they won’t just roll around in your dryer, they’ll bounce drunkenly. Nellie’s Dryerballs come in a cute (and recyclable) box with a cheerful comic strip on the back explaining how they work.
If you’d like to win some fabulous Nellie’s Dryerballs, please leave a comment on this thread. You’ve got until 6 p.m. PST (Los Angeles time) this Friday, Sept. 21st. At that point I’ll let the random number generator choose six winners and you’ll be contacted for a mailing address.
Small print: Even though your email address won’t show up in the comments, I’ll be able to see it. If you have not commented on this site before I’ll need to approve it, so if your comment doesn’t appear right away wait a few hours and I’ll get to it. Let me know if you have any questions.
If you don’t win you can console yourself and get a set here at Delight (they are very good about wrapping things up prettily and including freebies whenever they can).
