UPDATE: Curbly might recommend, but it seems our readers don’t, with comments like: “Suck”, “Make[s] a racket,” and, “Dismayed.” Oh well.
Curbly recommends using dryer balls as cheaper and natural alternative to dryer sheets. They work by “tumbl[ing] in the dryer to lift & separate laundry allowing hot air to flow more efficiently. The soft nodules massage fabrics to naturally fluff up and soften without the use of chemicals.” The balls are reusable and are supposed to last up to two years.
We were skeptical but Curbly said they worked, AND cut drying time by 15 minutes, and those kids don’t fuck around. Dryer balls, stuff ’em in your dryer’s mouth.
