I bought 4 of these style wool balls because I try and do large loads and find 1 dryer cycle doesn't always dry the clothes.

Since I started using these, I have seen zero difference in drying time. I also lose out on the fresh smells the Kirkland brand drier sheets I was using left. I still have some dryer sheets from the first package I bought st Costco 4 years ago.

All that to say, I wouldn't recommend wool balls

Thats because dryer balls are snake oil. The theory of separating clothes, reducing static, etc makes sense on paper, but when you actually look at their real usage, they dont really do anything. A tennis ball sized piece of wool or plastic isnt going to move or make a dramatic effect on pounds upon pounds of clothes, especially when they are actually wet.

Science based testing has shown they are a waste of money. You're far better off make sure all the lint traps and exhaust are cleaned often, and that the dryer isnt overloaded. Beyond that, theres not much you can do.

Trader Joe's has cheaper dryer balls, I believe they're a 4 pack for $5.

This is good if you don't have any TJ's nearby or just want the convenience of Amazon. But if you frequent TJ, they're the better deal.

I have the Dryer balls that you find in BBB. The ones that have rubber spikes all around it. It is supposed to help in drying time and also lint removal.

Are these any better and why?

I like these better because the wool absorbs the water and the clothes dry faster. They do not leave any odor.

I don't believe the wool absorbing water really makes a difference. They're tennis ball size and can't absorb much. I like the idea of all natural and wool though.

edit, thanks OP. In for one. My current set is a few years old and I can use a fresh set.

The ones I have (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KY7IH8Q [amazon.com]) are closer to softball size. Comment seem to say these are a bit smaller, though.

I agree I don't see them absorbing much, but they do help separate the fabric and help it dry a little faster. Mostly I use them to help reduce static. They don't work as well as dryer sheets, of course, but I only have a few items that hold much static fresh from the dryer (mostly rayon basketball shorts). Cheaper than dryer sheets and less stress on the dryer, though. I'm pretty happy with them.

Sorry, but this is close to regular price. I bought this last month at regular price:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1 ($10.99 and they are slightly larger than soft balls).

Not a real deal in my book, especially when you have to use a coupon on inflated sticker price.

Been using these for a few years now, and can't really tell the difference, if it's reducing static or dryer run time. I still religiously use them in every load though Smilie

Agree with elbarto1... been using these for about a year and don't notice any difference in drying time. perhaps a reduction in static cling though.

I bought some lavender oil off Amazon and every once in awhile will place a few drops on them and dry some clothes. Leaves a nice scent without gumming up the dryer screen or coating the cloths.

how long do you have to wait between loads for the balls to dry back out?

My adult kids mix fabrics when washing and drying. The clothes dry unevenly without the wool balls but more evenly with the wool balls. It could be a fluke or it could actually make a difference.

We don't use dryer sheets because we don't like the smell added to the fabrics.

I have the Trader Joe's version of these, they live up to the hype. They dry clothes faster and they make fabrics noticeably softer and the clothes seem to pill way less. I have cut the dryer sheet down to half because I like the scent, but I think I'll be using essential oils and these dryer balls once I'm out of sheets. I love that they just work, I can't vouch for these in particular but they look a lot like mine from TJs
