    Dryer balls

    Advertisements
    I got this at BB&B cause it says it helps cutting the drying time and eliminating static off the clothes. I haven't really notice any difference other than a louder dryer
    What are your thoughts if you have them?

    they don't really work for less static. I like them when I am drying pillows or other things that get bunched up in the dryer.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    , they're handy when you're doing say, one object-- that continuously just spins but the material itself doesn't move.. leaving those wet patches everywhere.

    I thought I could notice a static difference. That was before I started washing DF's army t-shirts. THOSE could use something to help the static. So for now I'll have to agree with the loud noise.

    I have them. No difference. The only thing I've noticed is that they can be used WITHOUT a dryer sheet. THings get dried. But they aren't soft. They work, am not a huge fan of them. the make sounds bouncing around too - promotional gimmick item is what I think of them.

    Thy help with drying towels or pillows or items with a down-fill. As for the other clothing I haven't tried it.

    I cleaned my lint screen in hot water and a dish scrubber (hand held with bristles) using gentle strokes. That helped to cut down some of the drying time because the airflow was better.

    I personally love them. I use 4 in a load, it doesn't help with static. But with a kid with extreme eczema, it helps a lot!

    Probably cause you are like me and most things I hear/read will always have a dirty meaning at first

    I have used them with our bedding sheets and they still roll up maybe they do a little less and I haven't noticed. I guess I was expecting too much from them
