Otherwise, lay the affected garment out flat on a clean surface then use a razor with blades (the sort you shave your legs with works fine) to gently and carefully shave away the pills. Use your free hand to keep the garment flat and, to ensure you don't damage the structure of the fabric, apply the least pressure possible. We've found you get the best results using light, short strokes of the razor. Clothes start pilling as the fibres stretch and break from the friction occurred as you wear the clothes or when they go through washing or drying processes. It is perfectly normal for this to happen, and there’s little you can do to stop bobbling clothes completely.

Scent: If you're using wool dryer balls as a replacement for fabric softener or dryer sheets, you might miss the subtle scent these products leave behind on your laundry. Look for dryer ball sets that include a bottle of essential oil or consider buying your own favorite essential oils separately. Just a few drops on each ball before you drop them in the dryer should be enough. It is perfectly normal for the fibres to be pulled out of your clothes in the above processes, and there is little you can do to stop bobbling completely. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take a few cautionary measures to prevent your clothes from bobbling in the wash.Separate your laundry items according to fabric type. Make sure you wash delicate items separately from harsher fabrics, like jeans, to lessen lint transfer and abrasion damages. And remember, turn your bobbling-prone clothing inside out before washing! Alternatively, use a very fine-toothed comb to brush away bobbles. Gently pull the comb towards you using short strokes with the teeth angled straight down so they don't catch in the fabric. In the Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning Lab, we research, test and write about hundreds of cleaning appliances and cleaning and organizing products every year. During judging for our latest Cleaning and Organizing Awards we tested over 200 products in three months, recruiting other GH Institute experts and over 1,000 of our GH+ consumer testers to gather data. We've tested dozens of laundry detergents, the best stain removers and even a few laundry hampers.

Any fabric can bobble or pill—aka form patches of fuzz balls—as the fibres stretch and break as a result of friction. Clothes rub against themselves while you’re wearing them, and against other fabrics during the washing and drying procedure. The areas worst-hit by pilling are the parts of clothing that receive the most abrasion in day-to-day wear, such as the underarm area and the side of jumpers and cardigans. The balls are firmly felted, effective for up to 1,000 loads, and contain no plastic, synthetics, or fillers. Yes! Dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners will no longer be necessary if you start using dryer balls. Dryer balls are a natural and chemical-free alternative to dryer sheets and often prove to be much more affordable in the long run as they don’t have to be replaced very often. Do dryer balls damage the dryer? For a helping hand keeping bobbles at bay, try a pill-remover such as the Gleener Fuzz Remover from Lakeland.

If you are hoping to find an equally effective and affordable product then the best option for you would be the Nuoshen dryer balls. They are not only one of the most long-lasting products on the list but are still hypoallergenic and considerably reduce drying time. Do you prefer to choose from the higher-value items?

Pilling on clothes can cause your garments to look well past their best, even if you’ve only worn them a handful of times. Those little balls of fluff found on bobbly clothes can be quite noticeable and take a bit of time to get rid of. Yes, wool dryer balls help to reduce static and reduce drying times. They have the added benefits of being environmentally friendly and free from harmful chemicals. Manufacturers of wool dryer balls usually say that they can be used about 1000 times, but you might need to ‘recharge’ them every 100 cycles or so. Yes! If your wool dryer balls have begun to feel like they’re not working as efficiently, you can consider washing them in hot water on a gentle cycle before putting them in your tumble dryer to dry on high heat. This helps the wool to regenerate and gives the balls a longer lifespan. Do wool dryer balls really work?The most bobble-prone fabrics are wool, cotton, polyester and nylon, while linen and silk are generally safe from the formation of fuzz balls. Synthetic fabrics—especially blends mixing multiple types of fibres—are more likely to result in bobbling than are pure, natural fabrics, like wool and cotton. Also, the looser the weave, the more prone the fabric will be to bobbling, which is why you hear about "jumper bobbling" instead of "jeans bobbling." These balls are also made of wool, but in this case, they are 100% Merino new wool, which is also from New Zealand and is washed but not bleached. Additionally, any reduction in drying times noticed when using dryer balls is due to the physical action of keeping items separated to allow for better airflow. But drying time reduction is likely negligible, so don't expect to see much impact on your electric or gas bill. Note that this means that any claims that these spherical laundry tools make laundry day more sustainable through a reduction of energy consumption are likely not significant either. In fact, our Beauty, Health and Sustainability Lab executive director, Birnur Aral, Ph.D., says “the benefits of using a reusable item versus a one-time use item will outweigh any other purported environmental benefits made by wool dryer ball manufacturers."

It is important to keep in mind that while dryer balls can fluff up garments and help keep garments separated during a dry cycle, they do not have the fabric softening ingredients dryer sheets and fabric softeners have, so garments will not come out of the dryer feeling as soft. They do fluff up garments which makes them feel softer than using nothing at all. Wool dryer balls are small balls of tightly compressed wool that fluff up garments as they bounce around during a dry cycle. As they bounce through your laundry loads, they help separate garments to keep them from clumping together, allowing moisture to evaporate from the garments more readily, so they dry fluffier, faster and more thoroughly. For those with sensitivities to fabric softeners and dryer sheets or anyone who wants to reduce their use of either, dryer balls are an easy switch to make. No need to measure out doses or make a big investment to start using them. As a reusable product, they also are a more environmentally conscious option than dryer sheets and large bottles of softener. If you are trying to lessen your environmental footprint, then the woollen tumble dryer ball options may be the best for you. These tend to be made without any chemicals or bleach, and do not contain any plastic.They are also a great replacement for fabric softener and will leave your clothes soft and light after your dryer cycle, as well as smelling delightful if you add a few drops of essential oil to the balls before use. Lenor Dryer Sheets can be used to help fight static, reduce wrinkles, provide long-lasting freshness, and prevent lint attraction.
