Re: Wool dryer balls - want negative reviews too!

Our cat likes to find them first and then give them to our dog who likes to eat them. Weird.
Haha. The furry duo. That's so funny.

I'm not sure that there was any difference in drying time since starting to use the balls. I'm guessing by "eat" they mean "tear apart."
Nope, they're not stiff at all! I wonder why that is. We use no fabric softener or dryer sheets. I suppose they could be softer, maybe? Sometimes DH's shirts feel a little stiff, but not enough to risk build up on our diapers so we've just done without. Our dryer doesn't take too too long to dry stuff, either.

That makes sense. I was thinking wool would be horrible to swallow!

Good to know! Do you notice a real decrease in drying time at all?
