So my wife bought these things, and I was skeptical. But I love to try things like this.
6 towels take 90 minutes to dry in my dryer.
Without Dryer Balls: 90 Minutes
With Dryer Balls: 85 Minutes
With Loafer: 75 Minutes.
To be fair, I have no idea how this theory is supposed to work theory wise, but I kind of get it.
So I tossed a size 11 1/2 Wide loafer in. Why not. basically the theory would be an object of somewhat hard/soft make0up to disrupt the normal flow of the round and round dryer motion.
I think the theory is to mix up the mix of articles in the dryer to get everything touching each other at different times. With some articles being dryer and hotter touching others that aren't.
So why not a shoe?
Without a doubt, the shoe is awesome for cutting times off the dry cycle. Probably the best dryer shoe I have ever bought.
Here's the one negative thing about them, which is inseparable from their action and purpose. They bounce strongly against the side of the drum and that results in a VERY loud noise. It always sounds as if the load is unbalanced or that someone is desperately trying to get out of the dryer. But this is exactly why they work, so it's part of the package and I'll take it. Nellie's PVC free dryer balls are not spherical shaped but oblong. Perhaps this is why they are so loud, but it's a fine trade off not to have potentially irritating plastic fumes in our home.
I LOVE these dryer balls... I've only had them a few weeks now, but they make my towels SO MUCH SOFTER in the dryer than all the smelly, lack-luster liquid or sheet softeners combined over the past 20 + years I've been doing my own laundry.
Where I live, it's hard to hang the wash outside for about 4-5 months a year, such as during the Fall, Winter and Spring. Between dust and dirt filled zephyrs, and wet, muddy dogs, and ice, snow and rain, it's just much easier to use the dryer.
But, I could never get my towels and wash cloths to feel as soft as when I first bought them. So, after much hemming and hawing, and a recommendation from a friend - and Amazon reviews - I broke down and bought these PVC Free dryer balls and I'm in love with the results.
If Nellie's Scent Sticks were available in any other fragrance than lavender, I might purchase some. But, for now, the soft towels are just "my cup of tea!"
I ordered these (through Amazon) a while ago, and did receive the green, pvc-free dryer balls, as advertised. All good. BUT --
I place a second, and then a third order. These both arrived and turned out to be the BLUE dryer balls, Nellie's, yes, but NOT pvc-free (not the green). Though, the seller had stuck a white label on the boxes that says they were new, and pvc-free. (Liar!)
I called the number printed on the packaging, and the company spokesman verified that the green and the blue are not the same dryer balls.
So, both the two recent orders have been returned.
I am now kind of put off about buying any more of these at all, even the green ones... if I can ever manage to get those again.

Excellent! Like these as they really improve drying. Other than the thumping in the dryer drum.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
We've been using these dryer balls for about a month and have really liked them so far. They have definitely helped the towels be more fluffy and the clothes are not staticky... Read morePublished 4 months ago by AshleySB
I liked these because you can add the scent sticks in them, but I had a problem with strings and hairs getting wrapped around the individual nubs and then they would break.Published 7 months ago by Mellina
