One thing I got for Christmas was dryer balls. You’ve all seen them – those bumpy plastic balls that are supposed to replace fabric softener, save you lots of money, reduce drying time, and fluff up your clothes. Well, I don’t know about ALL dryer balls but the ones I got are plain and simply, a joke. I first tried them with towels because it says they “naturally fluff up and soften without chemicals.” When I removed the towels from the dryer, I could hear the snap and pop of static electricity. I put them back in the dryer for a few minutes with a softener sheet. I then tried the balls with a load of whites. I pulled a knit shirt out of the dryer and one of Jim’s white hankies was plastered to the front of it. I peeled it off and put those clothes back into the dryer also with a softener sheet. No more dryer balls for me!
The ones I used are Handy Trends Dryer Mate brand and were bought at Menard’s.
Anyone else get a present that didn't perform as expected?
