The solution is VERY simple, and I cannot believe the manufacturer hasn't corrected it already: just drill a little hole in the ball! It even has a little dimple from the manufacturing process that lends itself to the hole. (Ours are only 2-3 mmm in diameter.) With the hole, the air pressure may equalize as the balls heat and cool . . . no deformation happens . . and the balls last years and years. After about 4 years, I did recently have another ball fall apart. Close examination revealed the hole had become clogged with lint to the point where the ball was effectively sealed again. Easy enough fix, I just pulled out tweezers and fixed the remaining balls. I'll be sure to examine them periodically in the future for the clogs, it only takes a second as I handle them when removing my clothes from the dryer.
I'm sometimes annoyed when products don't seem entirely thought out, and I do wish someone at Nellie's would demonstrate a knowledge of basic gas laws (PV=nRT, anyone?) . . . but this product otherwise works so well, it's worth the minor modification in the meantime.
There are a few other things I should mention. First, they are very loud in the dryer and this can be a problem for someone with their dryer in ears range. Luckily my boyfriend and I have our washer/dryer in a separate room with a door so it's not an issue for us, but when the door is open I can very clearly hear them banging around. Also, these should be used with a regular load of laundry (i.e. sturdy t-shirts, jeans, socks), I would not recommend you use these when washing anything delicate such as strapy tank tops, nylons, under garments, or anything made of silk or satin. These are not scented, so if you love that "fresh out of the dryer" scent you will be missing that. Lastly, I have not had any problems with the balls disintegrating or losing spikes like other reviewers have said, but I always run my dryer on a medium to low heat so repeatedly running these balls in a high heat cycle could be a problem.
Overall I would recommend these, they're more cost effective than fabric softener sheets and they will probably prolong the life of your clothing.
