Want to Cut Dryer Time (+ Costs) for Your Clothing ? LooHoo Is Eco-Friendly Solution!
I love when I can share a $$-saving tip or tool with my friends and even happier when I can share it will all of you. Courtesy of my friend Gina Gomez, I have this super cool — and super smart — idea created by a mom who realized that she could shave the time for drying clothes in a dryer along with the cost with a very simple device– a ball made of wool!
Cyndi Prince is the the Founder & CEO of LooHoo. She’s the genius who came up with this idea and design that make LooHoos so effective!
As a parent, I truly value health and wellness and know that when my family is healthy, they are happier. Like many moms, I’m careful not to expose my family to household cleaners that may contain toxic chemicals that can cause a serious illness. All cleaning products have natural alternatives that provide healthier options for our home environment. I am dedicated to educating myself in order to seek healthier products to protect the health and happiness of my family.
I created LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls, and I have helped thousands of homes protect their family’s health by providing a natural alternative to toxic dryer sheets.
What makes LooHoo special?
When the company LooHoo was formed in 2010, I was determined to use only domestic wool in order to support American sheep farmers and the Farming Industry. (Can you tell I grew up on a farm? Hello, North Buxton, Ontario!). I also wanted LooHoo to help support the local economy. Less than 100 miles from our headquarters in Camden, Maine, is a historic wool mill where we get all of our wool and nearby is our piece manufacturer where all LooHoos are made.
LooHoos are Made in Maine, USA with 100% domestic wool.
I was provided LooHoo balls to test out with my own laundry. This product incentive helped me to better understand how it works; what it really does and helped me understand that this is one very valuable laundry tool! The free LooHoo balls in no way impact my ability to provide an impartial evaluation of the value of this product. Without the test drive, I wouldn’t be able to honestly tell you how well they work.
I too have issues with dryer sheets. The scent of them when I take my dog for a walk in the early mornings will hang in the air for blocks. I have almost an allergic response to it and it makes me feel “icky”. That “icky-ness” is called a a reaction to the scent from the dryer sheets. That scent and the cost of the dryer sheets can be easily eliminated by purchasing LooHoo balls for your dryer. Yes there is a difference in cost but LooHoo Balls last a lot longer than a box of dryer sheets while they accelerate the speed of drying by bouncing up and down in the clothing helping the warm air to circulate into garments. All dryer sheets do is scent your clothing (and pollute the air in your home and outside).
Two questions are often asked:
Why wool? Wouldn’t tennis balls be equally effective?
Wool is used in our LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls because of its incredible properties including the ability to: naturally soften clothes due to friction of the balls against the fabric and make clothes fresher and smell cleaner since wool has the ability to absorb toxins and odors!
Modern tennis balls are made of a hollow rubber core, covered in a wool or nylon shell which is known as the nap. Pressurised air inside the rubber core makes the ball bounce.
Plus these LooHoo balls decrease static easily.
In other words, tennis balls are not the same and don’t have the same amount of wool (if they have any at all) to work in the dryer.
It makes sense to use LooHoo balls because they are more cost effective and after they are “die” (lose their bounce and the wool looses it’s ability to absorb any more moisture) you can hand them off to kids to play with outside or give them to dogs!
With a slew of colors that can capture your fancy along with different size boxes and bags of the LooHoo balls makes them affordable to purchase and even make great gifts to those who don’t want to spend a lot of time in a laundromat waiting for the dryer to get done. It can save you money in lots of ways.
Will LooHoo Balls really work?
YES! They will. I have used them myself! Cyndi Prince gave me a box of 3 balls. I found that I didn’t have to use all 3 at one time unless I had a huge amount of laundry (towels or bedding). That saved me money! I found that by using 2 balls with a normal load that the dryer time for normal loads were shortened by about 15-20 minutes per day. It also made sure that I realized when the dryer had shut off. My “laundry room” is in a closet and I don’t often here the chimes of the machines shutting down. With the use of LooHoo balls you can hear them bounce– and you will notice when the bouncing has stopped which makes clothing less wrinkled if you pull them out immediately.
On a light load of delicates or colors, I find that one ball is just enough to get the air to circulate and dry the clothing faster and it makes my life so much simpler to rescue my clothing from the dryer before they get 100% dry. I like my clothing to be hung up and dry the last 15% in that laundry room so that there are no wrinkles. LooHoo helps me achieve that goal.
Consider adding a Refresher Pack if: – some of your LooHoos have gone missing or been claimed by your child or pet – you need to replace some old LooHoos with new ones You are ready to boost your dryer’s efficiency and reduce your dry time even more – you would like to add some fun new colors to your collection. Choose from 2 to 4 LooHoos packaged in a reusable cloth bag.
Cyndi also has created a “refresher pack” of 2 or more LooHoos to account for missing wool balls to kids or pets or just to add a bit more bounce to the drying effort.
Products start at $19 for Refresher Pack, $29 for a deluxe 3 pack and go up based on the number of balls you want! They do have sales too!!
I would highly recommend giving LooHoo balls to graduates who are moving out, as unique bridal shower gifts for the home, for stocking stuffers at holiday time as well as birthday gifts for the person who has everything but hates doing laundry.
These are the coolest small laundry tool I have seen that makes a huge difference in the cost of using my dryer and preserving the life of my clothing.
Plus my dog loves the balls to play with too. I also like supporting a company where the raw materials are sourced in the US and the product is made in the US!
