Housewife Tip- Woolzies Dryer Balls

Chore tip from the horrible housewife- using Woolzies dryer balls decrease your laundry's drying time You are probably sitting at home trying to wrap your head around ME giving out a housewife tip. What am I thinking, right? Think of this dryer balls post as more of a lazy housewife helping out the rest of the lazy housewife population with their chores. Does that make sense? Let me go ahead and pick your jaw up off of the floor so we can start talking about balls… dryer balls, to be exact! (And you thought I was the only pervert out there!)

Ps: There is a giveaway at the end of this post.

 In case you can’t watch my Woolzies dryer balls video…

Chore tip from the horrible housewife- Woolzies dryer balls are a simple way to reduce the drying time of your clothes

(Yes, my dryer is tinted blue.)

You know you are getting old when your date nights consist of laundry, lots and lots of dirty laundry. How do these marvelous dryer balls help me get to the extracurricular date night activities quicker? You know, the activities that are supposed to happen on a date night? (I don’t either.) Woolzies help reduce drying time by 25% so the odds of you having the energy for extracurricular activities is 25% higher! Score for all of the tired parents out there! Are you ready for the best part? Dryer balls don’t require you to toss your shoes in the dryer! (Shoes in the dryer creep me out, not to mention, they are really loud.)

I had a <huh?> moment with Michael last week and Woolzies dryer balls saved me from it. I don’t know where he got the bright idea to turn the dryer knob all the way up and left it run forever, but he did. And here I was wondering why it took so long for each load to finish during our marathon laundry nights. Seriously, all I can think of while we are waiting for the dryer to get done is how I could be working! I got to school him in the beautiful world of get it in, get it dry, and get it out.  (That wasn’t a typo, I really meant it when I said I schooled him!)

It’s time for the Woolzies dryer balls giveaway!

    I don’t really have a best chore tip. what I do is clean a part of the the house each day, so I won get overwhelmed with cleaning.

  2. Sherri Lewis says

    if you have a place for everything and always put everything back where it goes, then you don’t spend half your time picking stuff up and putting it away…. I really wish my daughter would grasp this concept ?

    • Mallery says

      I really think this is the secret and why I can’t keep up in my house! We haven’t made our new home ‘ours’ quite yet so there is a lot of stuff that doesn’t have a spot yet.

  3. debbie jackson says

    always tell yourself you don’t have to clean you are just doing this little thing……….it works debbie jackson

    I’d love to win these. I’m fed up with chemicals in everything, length of dryer time and especially all the “DO NOT USE DRYER SHEETS OR FABRIC SOFTENER” items in our laundry that grows weekly. My husband is worried about clothes being itchy, but I’ve only heard good things about this product. I think if use them without telling him and THEN see what he thinks.

  5. Lisa says

    Sometimes I get laundry piled so high I cave and go to the laundromat (this is how I’ll spend my Tuesday) but usually I do it as I watch my shows on dvr. As a “chore tip”..I’m still trying to figure that out..

  6. Terri Moore says

    My best tip is to invite company over! All sorts of things get done right before that and the whole family helps out because you have a deadline.

  7. laurie nykaza says

    I like to put fresh cut lemons in a pyrex 4 cup measuring cup fill with water and put in the microwave to clean it . I set it for 4-5 minutes and then it smells great and it steams all the splattered mess inside so it comes off easy.

  8. Ouida Lampert says

    Best chore tip? Just get it done. Don’t spend any time dreading it. If I let dread set in, well, it may NEVER get done!

  9. Julie says

    I hate chores so I love tips. I guess the one I really like is using a pillow case to dust ceiling fan blades. I hate chores that make me do more chores like chase dust balls. I have a couple wool balls and NEED more! Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Ada Mangoes says

    I have to do little bits at a time unless I have someone to accompany me otherwise it is just so, so, so boring.

  11. Krystal says

    We try to invite people over on a regular basis…That way we work to clean up our house. The more we have people over, the more it stays clean. Well, except after the said people left. Then we have dishes galore!

  12. Amber Edwards says

    Ok, that is just awesome, I didn’t know they had reduced drying time too! Love that!

    My household tip…don’t let it pile up!! Once all the work piles up, you just want to quit! I make a list of small items to do each day. And if I do a little each day it keeps the house manageable and I don’t have one day that is harder than another.

  13. lisa g. says

    My best chore tip…take of the chores that I really don’t mind doing (not many!) and then guilt the husband and kiddos into helping with the rest. After all, they are responsible for the majority of the mess!!

  14. Debi H. says

    Don’t put it off….it just builds up and then you are overwhelmed. I usually start in one room and work my way through the house.

  15. Hotsy Malone says

    Boy could I use these Balls, my dryer takes forever! My tip is you just get done what you can and don’t go crazy wearing yourself out, especially if you are like me and only have the weekends to do stuff. I just try to keep stuff orderly as possible, would not pass any white glove tests that’s for sure!

  16. Jennifer Mae Hiles says

    I try to do a load of laundry each day and do the dishes at least once a day…or just tell my husband to do it, ?

  17. Stacy says

    I have a reusable chore chart that breaks it down to one room per day & a few everyday chores. It’s a lot easier that way!

  18. Gina Hodges says

    My husband and I have our weekly chores list and we try to make sure we get them done unless something unexpected comes up. but splitting the chores is great!

  19. Terri Herman says

    I put all my bathroom cleaning supplies in one bucket and take it from bathroom to bathroom. That way I don’t have to have so many supplies & they don’t take up room in my bathroom cabinets. (We have 3.5 bathrooms so this is VERY helpful for me!)

  20. Deana says

    I try to do at least one load of laundry per day. I also just try to think about one room at a time. If I think about my whole house being a mess I get quite overwhelmed but I can handle one room at a time.

  21. Kristi Cartwright says

    Staying on a routine cleaning system is my best tip-so that you don’t get MORE behind and make it take longer later! ?

  22. Julie says

    I also enjoy cleaning more when I can see that I’m making a difference (i.e. I prefer to clean something that’s really dirty rather than just maintaining)…that’s probably not a very good tip though. Vinegar and water in a spray bottle and you can let your kids clean almost anything-and they love the spray bottle.

  23. Jessica w says

    I also let the laundry pile up. It takes days to put it all away. By then, the dirty laundry has piled up again! It helps to have a large capacity front load washer- fewer loads for the less organized!

  24. Ghada says

    Not sure my comment went through or not but any how, I don’t have any good tips really cause I my self still trying to figure it out even though I been married for 2 years now!!

  25. Carmen says

    My best tip would be to win the lottery and hire a housekeeper.

    But that hasn’t worked for me yet, so I just try to keep up with it in bits and pieces so that it isn’t so overwhelming.

  26. Shannon says

    I feel weird sharing a tip because I am not very good at keeping a tidy home, but when I do have that wild hair that occasionally pops up I usually try and focus on one piece of furniture or counter space at a time. It really helps me to break the room down into smaller bits so I can move from room to room feeling accomplished. For example: My bedroom may still be a huge mess, but my dresser is lookin’ super clean! Then always remember to point out to your husband how GREAT of a job you did. This usually guilts him into cleaning the kitchen.

  27. Donna Cheatle says

    I take the “fit it into my schedule” approach. I fit a load of laundry in commercial breaks, or unload the dishwasher between games with the kids. That way I’m concentrating on the things I want to do and not the things I have to do. Sometimes it works, sometimes, not so much, lol

  28. Autumn C. says

    Set aside 20 minutes every day for housework like dusting, vacuuming, etc. You’ll be AMAZED at what you can get done in 20 minutes! Laundry is another story, LOL!

  29. Nicole Newby says

    I have a 6 month old, early bird baby who only lets me get stuff done in the morning when he first wakes up. I try to get my laundry going and get as much as I can done then. It works out though because then I have the rest of my day ?

    mom always said do something you hate to do , then something that needs done and something you like done
