It is suggested that you use 2-3 balls for fastest drying. The balls are about the size of a tennis ball with an ~9" circumference. Due to the fact that these are 100% wool you may have some natural piling occur over time.
How do they work?
Well instead of placing a dryer sheet in your dryer, simply place 2-3 off the dryer balls in with your laundry. You can leave these in your dyer. This can safe you from having to remember to put in a dryer sheet. It also saves you from harming diapers or other laundry that wouldn't be safe with a dryer sheet. The dryer balls can also last for years. The wool dryer balls naturally soften your clothes and can help clothes dry quicker which lessens your drying time.
What I love:
Cloth Diaper Safe
No more buying dryer sheets!
Saves money- Less time the dryer runs and no buying dryer sheets.
How it leaves my clothes feeling soft.
The only problem that I have had with these is that I have 2 kids who think that "Balls" are for playing with. They don't understand that these should stay in the dryer. They want to take them out to play with them. Especially because they are soft and colorful. Beware you may have to hunt these down to use for laundry if you have small kids.
