Nellie’s Dryer balls claims to soften fabrics naturally, reduce drying time, reduce lint and wrinkles and reduce ironing. They are non-toxic with no chemicals.
I tried them out with many different loads to see if there was any difference.
Jeans, towels and hard to dry clothes – Drying time went a bit faster and came out as soft as if we used a dryer sheet and fabric softner. I was very impressed with how well the dryer balls worked but the drying time wasn’t substantial with the hard to dry fabrics. No Static!
Under Garments and Socks – Drying time was very fast and softness was achieved. No static!
Cotton Pants and Button Front Shirts – The dryer balls worked wonders on the all cotton clothing. Drying time was faster, the clothes came out practically wrinkle free and very soft. No Static!
Work-Out Wear and Nylon Fabrics – These are the clothes that the dryer balls were not completely successful with. They did dry faster, which is great, but they came out totally stuck together statically. I’m not sure what can be done to help with these items. To get rid of the static I had to put a dryer sheet in for 10 minutes.
Nellie’s Dryer Balls overall do what they claim. I am very pleased with them.
