One of the 2 balls broke within 7 months. It completely split in half. The other ball is going strong, but I will not be ordering again for replacements. Back to the local stores to buy their "as seen on tv" ones. They were a little more pricey, but quieter & longer-lasting.
First off, if you're contemplating dryer balls, they're great.
We switched over to using them about 2 years ago & have had great results -- decent fabric softening qualities & considerable reduction in static cling. My wife has a sensitive nose & sensitive skin, so using dryer balls have allowed us to eliminate the need for heavily fragranced (heavily coated) dryer sheets. In the past, we've always just bought the balls locally, as we figured they're all the same.
These dryer balls were a lot cheaper than our local stores, so we decided to give them a try. They seem to do the job on par with our previous ones. The reason for the 3-star rating is that these are hard plastic vs. rubbery plastic on the previous models. As a result, these are loud! If you run laundry at night, or live in a condo with neighbors close by, this may irritate them. It's not as loud as throwing shoes in the dryer, but it is a constant sound of hard plastic continuously being rattled in your dryer. The closest example I can think of is... throw a few nickels in the dryer & run it. If the sound doesn't bother you... you'll be just fine. I'm hoping the plus will be that they last longer than the rubbery plastic balls.
All in all, if they last longer, I will buy again.
These are a different type of plastic, and tore in half after a few uses. A total waste of money.
Not recommended at all.

The balls started to chunk apart after the first couple months - not what they should be doing! Would not buy them again.Published on March 22, 2013 by Jeanette
I really like these dryer balls. Was having problems finding the ones without
the softener inside in the stores, so looked on Amazon & found exactly
what I wanted.
I bought these before and had no problem, but these balls split into two pieces during their first use! Read morePublished on September 19, 2010 by Irish_Mom
