Do DRYER BALLS really reduce the drying time significantly or are they a swizz ?

my mum sent me some.

they do chop off about 10-15 minutes from drying time, IME.

I have some, and I think they do - but maybe i was overcooking the laundry before.

I got some in the pound shop and they seem to make no difference. Perhaps if I had the expensive ones they would...

if i hadn't been given them i wouldn't have gone out and bought them.

I bought these last week

I think they work hmm - defintely less drying time but I dont know about reducing creases?

Oh God - I was going to buy those out of Lakeland - am going to have to now - even though I haven't chosen/ordered my drier yet!

Lakeland is such a nightmare! - my want list is endless!!

I have some cheap ones but have only used them once because they made such a banging noise in the dryer I was worried the neighbours would complain!!

very noisy! Also every now and then there is a tissue that ends up in the laundry from someone's pocket. And now with the balls, you get bits of tissue like hundreds and thousands EVERYWHERE, not bits and pieces you can pick out easily!

Im not convinced about them ..... I've got more creases than without them .....

Deffo reduced drying time...
Fluffier clothes too, IMO.

Definitely fluffier softer clothes. Not sure about drying time though
