Colorable Unique FoFlor Outer Space Rug

We received this awesome Colorable Unique FoFlor Outer Space Rug ($47.99ARV) from Everything Doormats. This mat is designed specifically to be colored with washable marker, but is also a fully functional doormat. You can machine wash this doormat and hang dry it. Then the kids can have fun and color it all over again! 

  • Permanently dyed and fade resistant Polyester top surface
  • Will fit just about anywhere with its low profile
  • "Memory" rubber backing that will lay flat even after being rolled or folded.
  • No-slip Rubber backing that will grip most surfaces for added stability
  • Machine Washable makes care simple
  • Can reuse your mat any time the kids want a fun coloring activity
  • Keeps your kids drawings off the walls and floors and on your washable mat instead
  • Manufactured right here in the USA

  • The kids had a blast coloring their Outer Space Doormat! 

    They all chose one large item to color each. Jada chose the Rocket Ship, Cade chose the Astronaut, Ezio chose the Spaceship with the Alien inside of it and I colored the Alien by himself. 

    They all colored very nicely on their chosen images. Even the baby, Ezio (2 years old) colored very nicely on his own spaceship only. He usually loves to color where everyone else is, so this was a nice activity for all of us. The doormat is very easy to color, the markers didn't smudge across the surface and you don't have to press hard for the markers to show up on the mat. We just used Washable Crayola Markers. 

    TADA! Their finished mat! 

    Everyone colored a couple of the smaller images on the background and then Jada tried to get the boys to nicely color the background as well, which is when things went crazy. I love how our doormat turned out! However, I can't decide if I want this to be a doormat for our home or let the kids have the doormat at their bedroom door. I'd love to have it at the front door so that everyone can see their beautiful work, but I'd also like it at their bedroom door as it is theirs and they colored the majority of it together very nicely. 

    This mat is great! It is easy to color and machine washable. It also have a slip-resistant rubber back so that it wont slide around and no one will slip and get hurt on it. Also, with the top being polyester it shouldn't stain if something gets spilled on it. It's fun for the kids and a great activity for them to do together. 

    When we are ready to recolor this mat, I will wash it and post updated photos of how well it washes.

    Beck's Wares: OOAK Wool Dryer Balls Review, Discount Code (Exp. 8/31) & Giveaway! US 8/14

    Disclosure: We received a Starter Set of Wool Dryer Balls from Beck's Wares in exchange for our honest review. All opinions and experiences are 100% our own and may differ from those of your own. I am not responsible for the fulfillment of the giveaway prize. Prize will be shipped directly to the winner from Beck's Wares. 

    One Of A Kind Wool Dryer Balls

    Beck sent us a Custom one of a kind Starter Set ($35ARV) of her absolutely amazing wool dryer balls! A starter set of wool dryer balls from Beck's Wares contains 6 dryer balls and is the perfect amount of dryer balls to get anyone started with using them. The Starter Set comes with 2 Large which consist of at least 1 oz of wool each, 2 Medium which consist of at least 0.6oz of wool each and 2 Small which consist of at least 0.4oz of wool each, making a total of 4 oz of felted wool dryer balls. This provides the right amount to help reduce your drying time as well as static cling and it also helps to soften your clothing. Beck makes her dryer balls to order, so if there is a certain color or color combination that you would prefer, she is perfectly okay with you sending her a message.

    This beautiful set or wool dryer balls was a special one of a kind gift from Beck, though she can not recreate these, she does have many other fun images available in her store. Some of Beck's other beautiful wool dryer balls have owls (as you can see above in the first photo), flowers, sock monkeys and even some other fun Geeky images. Beck also takes custom orders, I bet if you cloth diaper and request a cloth diaper to be made on a wool dryer ball, maybe a cloth diaper pin on another and so on, that would be absolutely adorable! The work that Beck does on these wool dryer balls is absolutely amazing! The designs are all done by hand with a tiny needle that pushes the wool roving into the dryer ball and this definitely takes talent to make such neat and beautiful designs on them!

    Okay, so you're probably wondering - How well do they work?! 
    Well, I cloth diaper and the majority of my stash now consists of fitted diapers which more often then not take longer to dry then, say pockets and inserts. With these felted wool dryer balls, I only need to dry the diapers once on low heat. Yes, sometimes some thicker soakers and shells are still damp when the first cycle is done, however, I no longer need to run the dryer a second time since using these dryer balls. Now the dampness is so minimal that I can bring the entire load up and use one of the fully dry diapers and the slightly damp diapers are fully dry by the time we need to change Ezio. It works out perfectly and I'm so pleased! I really do not like to have to run the dryer twice, although I usually utilize that second dry very well and toss in my next load of laundry with the rest of the diapers that needed to be dried, but then sometimes the dryer was too full and the diapers left behind still weren't dry. It really is easier like this. 

    What else have the dryer balls helped with other then drying diapers quicker? 
    Well, Cade wears pull-ups at night time and usually leaks out of his pull-up. Why not use diapers? He usually leaks out of those as well... So, I have to wash his bedding nearly EVERY day! And I only have one actual bedding set for him, meaning I usually need to get his bedding washed and dried fully within about 2 hours so he can have a made bed come nap time. He has a very nice and thick comforter and I also usually have to wash his pillows too. So having the dryer balls really helps to reduce the amount of time it takes to dry all of his bedding, including his comforter and pillows. I'm not sure about others, but I never put him down for a nap or to bed with even a slightly damp pillow. I know I wouldn't like to sleep with or on anything even slightly damp. These dryer balls have also greatly reduced the amount of static cling from drying his bedding! Seriously before, I would bring his bedding up and put it down somewhere while taking care of other things and go back to the bedding to make his bed and there would still be static built up in the bedding. Also, when pulling his bedding out of the dryer if I touched the dryer door I would get a pretty strong shock from it, every time.

    I so greatly love these wool dryer balls! They aren't boring and plain, they show our personalities and our interests as well as helping in multiple ways with laundry duties. As a mom of three and doing laundry for five people, including cloth diaper laundry and bedding nearly daily, every bit of help with laundry goes a long way! These felted wool dryer balls from Beck's Wares definitely do not disappoint!
