FluffaLumps Wool Dyer Balls- Review and Giveaway!

          So when I first started cloth diapering, I had no idea that something like a wool dryer ball even existed! But now that I have found them, I am TOTALLY in love and couldn't imagine my laundry life without them- LOL! 



         SO, you're probably thinking, "What the heck is so great about dryer balls anyway?" First, let me start out by sharing with you the benefits of the wool dryer ball in general:


1. The dryer balls bounce around making your clothes and diapers SOFT , much softer than with dryer sheets!


2. The dryer balls bounce around therefore separating your clothes and decreasing your dryer time!


3. Dryer balls are a natural and chemical-free alternative to the classic dryer sheet, therefore, no residue is left in your dryer or on your clothes/ diapers!  


4. Dryer balls last for years- that's right, YEARS making them much more cost effective than purchasing dryer sheets! ***MY FAVORITE PERK :)


And now, WHY I LOVE FluffaLumps: 





          Fluffalumps are dryer balls made by a very sweet WAHM that is passionate about cloth diapering. She started making wool dryer balls to help make her cloth diapers nice and soft without creating build-up like dryer sheets do. 
        Victoria was kind enough to send me four 100% Peruvian Wool FluffaLumps- 2 for my review and 2 to giveaway! The first thing I noticed about them was how soft they are! I also  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the bright vivid color pallet that Victoria has chosen to use for her dryer balls. I've been using two of her balls for almost two weeks now, and I have definitely noticed both an increase in softness in my laundry and a decrease is dryer time- (although with only two balls, the benefits are only slight. Victoria recommends using 2- 4 Fluffalumps depending on your dryer size and load size if you are wanting to experience a signifiant reduction in drying time and increase in softness).      
      Overall, I'm very impressed and cannot WAIT to get some more! I especially LOVE how soft my diaper inserts have become. I'm also thinking that with winter on the way I will be line drying less and the Fluffalumps will help me save energy and time by drying my diapers faster! So what are you waiting for? Go try some Fluffalumps TODAY

  87. I bought mine from a mom at www.WoolDryerBalls.com 3 years ago and they are wonderful! Her's are not raveled- be careful of the raveled up type as they come undone after a few months use!
