  1. Hello! I already subscribe, and to make my house greener, I’ve turned down the thermostat (even with this polar vortex in North Dakota!), and am wearing my handknits more than ever!

  2. I would love to try this product! We’ve given up harsh cleaning chemicals in our home and use white vinegar as a disinfectant. It actually works better. Thank you so much for sharing the information on this product and for the opportunity to win.

  4. I have been a subscriber to your youtube and newsletters for a very long time and love them!

    I have been reducing chemicals in our household for years! It is amazing how much less it costs to make these choices! The biggest savings has come by choosing to make our own laundry detergent! I also make dishwasher detergent!

    I have had these dryer balls on my list!

    Thank you for your video! You rock!

    Have a creative day!

  6. I haven’t used any type of laundry aid for over 22 years! I’m as excited as you about this product because it will be wonderful to have no static, softer laundry and using less of the utility factor…which is reason alone. Believe it or not…sometimes I re-wash my paper towels if they were only used to wipe hands or water up. They turn out terrific! You’d be surprised how many uses you get out of them.

  9. I’m a subscriber to your you tube videos and think they’re great. Please keep them coming. We recycle as much as we can and we use the blank side of printed paper for notes, shopping lists, things to do lists, …. before its recycled. Thank you for this giveaway contest.

  10. I started knitting last year and just found your downtown hat tutorial and have started. Have used vinegar for years as a water softener in the laundry. It is an excellent hard water stain remover. There are lots of uses for cleaning but one I learned a couple years ago – flush your toilet having cutoff the fill to the tank so the bowl is mostly empty. Fill the bowl with distilled vinegar and leave to soak overnight. Vinegar is inexpensive compared to cleaners but it might take a couple gallons. If your minerals are really bad might need longer or repeat. Scrub with brush to loosen. The vinegar seems to soften the buildup so it scrub away. Must less toxic to water supply and septic systems.

  11. Hi Staci, I couldn’t leave a comment on YouTube so I’m putting it here, not sure I will be entered or not. Just want to say that if I don’t win I will be buying the dryer balls because I think they are a great idea. We use dryer balls now but they don’t replace fabric softener sheets just help on the time. I’m not sure what material they are. Also use vinegar as a disinfect and for keeping drains clear. We use the low energy light bulbs and recycle everything possible. I live in Anaheim, CA and we have had trash recycling for many years.

  12. I i couldn’t leave a comment on utube. Don’t really know how. I have to do laundry at the laundromat, so any drying time saved is great. I try to reuse plastic containers as much as possible. I save some takeout containers, and use them for my Christmas cookie gifts. I wash them in the dishwasher and store them in a bin. Rotisserie chicken containers are great for fancy cupcakes.

  13. I have been using 3 plastic dryer balls and really like them. I have not used fabric softener for a very long time. I also use about 1/4 cup of vinegar in towels, underwear to get soap out then rinse again this really helps the fibers to absorbe moisture. I have seen the dryer balls on Mountain Meadows web site was also impressed by the product. I put them on my bucket list for Christmas but didn’t get them.

  14. I have been using Eco friendly laundry soap and softener. These wool dryer balls would eliminte buying softener. Excellent. I purchased a yard of 100 per cent cotton flannel and cut into squares, hemmed the edges and now have wash clothes to use when I clean my face. They are so soft and would have many other uses for households with children. Thank you for the give away.

    Wow! I’m very excited about these dryer wool balls too! Well, my husband and I started to do two things to be “greener and recycle”. First is, we got a Worm Bin. The recycle part is that we use all the left overs from vegetables, fruits, egg shells, newspaper and even lint from the dyer to feed the worms. You then can use the worms waste for your garden, that’s the “greener” part. The second is a recycle system we set up in our backyard to catch the rain water that’s used to make our garden greener and recycle water. That’s our contribution so far. Love your website, thanks!!!
