Dryer balls

Who uses dryer balls? Have you found they are causing your diapers to pill more than before you started? All of my prefolds are getting really pilly and I'm trying to figure out what is causing it.

Do sweater shavers work on prefolds? anyone know?

Re: Dryer balls

I started using dryer balls a few weeks ago and I haven't noticed anything yet? I don't have prefolds though.....I have wipes, pockets, fitteds etc.....

Maybe that's normal for prefolds?

Re: Dryer balls

I use them, and have for a few months now. Nope don't notice any extra pilling. I find my diapers are actually softer now with the dryer balls.

Re: Dryer balls

i do know that for a month or two my prefolds got all pilly, but i think that was part of the breaking in process and the dryer balls actually helped (this happened about 4months after i got my prefolds)
