Today since I had to wash a bunch of towels, I decided to test our Alpaca Dryer balls. We've been using the same 3 alpaca dryer balls for about 6 years and I love them. But I decided to find out for myself how much energy they were actually saving me.
Here is how I tested them, controlling any variables as best as possible, and my results...
Using our Samsung LG sensor dryer.
I washed 5 towels 3 hand towels and 3 wash cloths - exact same towels in each load.
Both loads were washed on hot with the spin cycle between medium and extra high.
Both loads were dried with dry flow sense - very dry setting on medium temperature.
Before each load was dried I ran a different load in the dryer and cleaned the dryer lint trap. So the temperature would be the same starting temp.
I used the same amount of laundry detergent in both loads and did not use laundry softener in either load
The first load with NO dryer balls took 58 minutes
The second load with 3 dryer balls took 42.5 minutes.
That's 15.5 minutes less drying time in the load using 3 alpaca dryer balls. So it DOES WORK in not only fluffing and softening loads naturally, it does both in less time. That's less $electric costs year round.
We use multiple suppliers for our dryer balls and barely keep up with demand with this very popular product! See all of our dryer ball listings HERE.
