I was in Poundland and saw they had tumble dryer balls for £1 (obviously lol).
I have seen these for a round £10 for 2 so thought this was a good deal.

This is a first post so if I've missed anything out please let me know :o)

eta forgot to say they were in my local one which is Merry Hill

Excuse my ignorance - what are tumble dryer balls?
:oops:
#2
apart from the fact they use up more energy being made than they will save you in thier lifetime....
#3
So how do you get dryer balls?

Sorry someone had to say it.
#4
They save on electricity and fabric softener, so can't be bad.
#5
except they waste more electricity and oil being made in the first place than they will save throughout the entire lifespan in your tumbledryer..
#6
they really are noisy!! clanging about in the tumble dryer.

That's quite a claim.

So the couple of ££ they cost to make isn't worth the power saving and fabric softener I no long flush into the sea?

I'll throw mine out immediately and buy a couple gallons of Fairy.

i bought some of these recently and i personally do not think they made any difference in time to drying my towels and the one ball just disintegrated on the first try
#9
I've been using the same ones for a couple of years now, at least. I even leave them in the wash cycle (I have a washer/dryer) They work, is all I can say.
#10
I have bought these from poundland. I had to buy a second set as the first set smelt like they had been dipped in car oil! second set were fine & although quite noisy, keep stuff from sticking together & that awful static buildup you get.

they might fit but they will only damage your clothes in a washing machine. You need different ones for a washing machine

I reckon they are rubbish myself but for a quid.............................

they're still rubbish ;)
#14
You mean for 2 or 3 years I have been using them and not managed to notice the damage?
They will damage in a wash but not in a dryer? Why?
The laundry balls are in place of detergent, which I still use.

Let me explain..... a washer dryer goes from wash to dry without intervention from this mere mortal. To put the balls in the dry cycle would mean sitting in front of the thing waiting for the wash to stop, difficult at 2 in the morning and when I'm at work don't you think. I'll stick to my tried and tested method.

#16
there rubbish could'nt tell any difference and they split after only being used twice!
#17
I've been using some for a while and I find my stuff comes out much less creased.
They could do with being a bit heavier, as the more expensive ones are but they definitely work.
#18
they do seem to work. I have a small tumble dryer and it seems to be a lot quicker drying things.
It seems that poundland should be withdrawing there clones/copies of these balls.

I not sure whether to believe they making all that much difference in the dryer,maybe i am convincing myself its quicker. Also stuff comes out a lot softer , its like putting them tumble dryer cloths in.
#19
Can anyone link to a proper, scientific test that shows these things work..?
#20
I've got better balls than everyone else.

But then I did buy them at the Ideal Home Show a few years ago for £10. I use mine all the time, can't really say if they make any difference at all, probably not when I think about it! Me and mum used to have a tradition of buying a really useless thing at the Ideal Home Show each year. The following year we got the electric food bag sealers (don't ask!).
#21
Those dryer balls look very abrasive. What you save on the electricity you spend on darning/replacing worn clothes,
suspended#22
I use these all the time, and they do cut down on drying time, and haven't damaged any of my clothes:thumbsup::thumbsup:
#23
i've got some and had no prblems at all - save on tumble dryer sheets.
#24
I bought some of these from poundland - they do seem to cut down on drying time and leave clothes less creased. Can't comment on damage point as most of my decent clothes can't be tumble dried anyway so it's only bedding/towels/socks that get put in the dryer usually!

For a pound they were worth a punt I thought! :)
