Nellie'sâ¿¢ PVC-Free Dryer Balls
Love the fact that it is natural. I def. noticed a decrease in drying time when using these! (15 minutes to dry towels vs 45 minutes!!) My only complaint is that they seem to make A LOT of noise when they are in the dryer- they bang against the barrel when they are being tossed. I haven't found that this is based on load size etc. Just seems to be a constant. Also love that you can add scent sticks. I did have to google how to get them in (no directions on either package that I could find!) Just use a coin to turn the side with the + design! Great product otherwise! The bright color also helps with finding them at the end of the load!

The BEST dryer balls
I have some little hard "hedgehogs" that work great, but make a huge racket in the dryer. These work equally well to soften the clothes and don't cause nearly as much noise. There is no need to use the little scent sticks - a plus for households with allergies. They are pricey little devices for what they are, but at least they really work.

Worked well until I lost one
Didn't really calculate if it helped saved energy, but my clothes seemed drier when on the gentle cycle. Until I lost one.

Good, not great
I like these dryer balls, but was hoping they would do more to eliminate static than they did. I did notice a difference in softness, but I think I will still need to use dryer sheets to eliminiate the static. I will say that when I used them with pillows, I found that the fiber fill in the pillows didn't bunch up like it sometimes does. I don't know if that is because of these or the type of pillows I was washing/drying.
