I have been banned from touching the laundry equipment at our house. Being off the laundry detail, I was surprised to hear that you could save energy by using dryer balls.
My wife reminded me she used to throw a couple of tennis balls into our clothes dryer. She used them when she wanted to give pillows or down filled parkas a good fluffing.
All that bouncing around inside the dryer drum will soften the clothes without using chemicals.
Instead of chemically softening the clothes, I guess the dryer balls tenderize the clothes. Reducing the use of chemicals or dryer sheets saves money and is better for the environment.
They also reduce the time it takes to dry the clothes.
The dryer balls fluff and separate the pieces of laundry resulting in better air circulation. The improved air circulation around each piece of laundry reduces the drying time by as much as 25%. Shorter drying time saves on your energy bill.
Wow, save on softeners and on energy a double play for saving money.
The newer, purpose made, dryer balls are a lot quieter than the tennis balls my wife used to use.
