    They don't appear to make any difference to drying time but increase the amount of lint in the filter through abrasion. After the first couple of uses one of the balls started to disintegrate and the pins broke away leaving a hole maybe if they were warmed first it might have stopped the damage. oh and they are also quite noisy too. overall I don't think they are worth it.

    Energy saving? It takes a given amount of thermal energy to evaporate a given amount of water. If only 75% of that energy is applied to the same amount of water, then 25% of it will not be evaporated. Simple physics.

    I really can't answer for energy saving in the dryer itself, it does mean less creases in my shirts so no need for an iron, saving energy there and occasionally they rattle a bit going round in the drum so you don't forget you have the tumble dryer on, so you remember to switch it off - another energy saving measure. This is my second set, after a couple of years they do go hard and brittle and one started to break up, at the price the saving is to be made.

  • Q Static Electricity 2 Answers

    Whilst not their specific aim, is it likely the use of them could reduce the charge built up ? I ask because I often receive quite a jolt ( plus seeing sparks !!) when sorting through the dried clothes.

      Thank-you for your response. I didn't know about the drying time and that has made a substantial difference to lessening the static electricity charge. Thank-you for the advice.

      We do not think these balls will make a noticeable difference to the static charge in the drying load. Over drying man made materials can result in excess static.

  • Q How often can 1 ball be used? 2 Answers

    By Anonymous - Lisburn - 12 November 2013

      The fact that there is a 'weighted' object disturbing the load is likely to help reduce tangling and therefore using more than two again may improve this effect.

      These balls can be repeatedly used until they break.

      Although the balls are quite hard they become a lot softer when heated up in the dryer.

      I have used this product for a long while now and have not noticed any wear or tear on fabrics, they are very good especially if you dont want to use conditioners

  • Q Can you just throw these balls in the washing machine instead of the tumble dryer? 2 Answers

    By nineo - 09 November 2009

    • A
      No, they are designed for dryer use only.

      Hi Nineo, You could put these balls in your washing machine but I'm not sure what the benefits would be. They would help agitate your clothes but that's also what the drum lifters are for. I have seen products for the washing machine that are simliar in form but supposedly reduce limescale. The real benefit of these balls are that they help reduce the time it takes to dry your clothes - thereby reducing the amount of energy consumption used.
