    GREAT BALLS O’ DRYER!, October 14, 2015

    I purchased these when I also purchased my laundry balls. These dryer balls work great! I was skeptical at first but they really do a great job. I was impressed that they left my clothes smelling really amazingly fresh without any chemical smell or flakey frangrance. The smell of the clothes is pure cotton! I am using three balls for the average laundry load. But if I have a larger heavy laundry load like a very large bundle of bath towels or so, I use about four or five. When drying the bed sheets I use four and when I dry the bed spread (thick quilted cotton), I use five of these. They do work and leave my clothes smelling fresh and without any static cling. If you experience static cling, add another ball to the drying cycle. Also, at least for me, I save on the dryer because the clothes dry thoroughly and in about 1/3 less time.

    I am revising this review as of 10/29/15:

    I am including a photo to show the difference in size between I-gruv balls and Sheep Soft balls. Sheep soft balls come in at 8-7/8 inches around with a soft measuring tape. I-gruv balls come in at slightly larger at about 9 to 9-1/8. I think the heavier larger balls seem to do a little bit better, especially for large loads.

    The only thing I really didn’t like was that when I purchased these, they were $13.94. When I went to purchase them again under the “buy again” option 10 days later (to get some for my father in law), from the same vendor, the prices jacked up to $15.44. I hate when sellers do that. Makes a buyer feel like they are getting taken advantage of. So five stars for the product itself, but 3.5 stars to the seller.

    Did not like these at all. They shed all over our clothes, provided no static cling but did make the clothes softer. But after having loads of laundry covered in white wool fibers I threw them out. I bought a different brand and so far so good no fibers. Wouldn’t recommend.

    Save energy in the dryer-especially with cloth diapering!, July 22, 2016

    As a mom of three young children, I do a lot of laundry! When I can’t hang my clothes outside on the line, it’s nice to think that I’m trying to still be energy-efficient when using my dryer.

    I also cloth diaper two of my children currently, and they take forever to dry typically! I was hoping these dryer balls would reduce the dryer time significantly, but unfortunately they didn’t. They did help though! They certainly didn’t help the first time I used them, but I think it took them getting broken in. When I tried again with my diapers, it reduced the time from about 80 min to 60 minutes. So I’ll continue to use them and maybe it’ll keep on reducing the time, we’ll see. But even if it reduces it at all, it’s worth it to me.

    More pros:
    *I like that my clothes are getting stuck together or knotted as badly while these dryer balls are working to keep everything moving and rearranging.
    *You can add essential oils to the balls to act like a scented dryer sheet, which I think is awesome.
    *They’re not overly noisy when using them. They obviously have a sound bouncing around within the dryer, but it’s not obtrusive.

    It took a couple of uses before the real benefits/time saving became apparent, so give it a couple of tries when you’re first starting out. If you’re looking for something to reduce time in the dryer, give these a try. I gave them a 4 instead of a 5 because the difference wasn’t as drastic as I’d thought they would be. I wish I could give them a 4.5. :) I was fortunate to receive these at a discount in exchange for my honest opinions!
