Static Electricity 2 Answers

Whilst not their specific aim, is it likely the use of them could reduce the charge built up ? I ask because I often receive quite a jolt ( plus seeing sparks !!) when sorting through the dried clothes.

  • Thank-you for your response. I didn't know about the drying time and that has made a substantial difference to lessening the static electricity charge. Thank-you for the advice. By Rod - United Kingdom - 21 May 2015

    We do not think these balls will make a noticeable difference to the static charge in the drying load. Over drying man made materials can result in excess static.

    The fact that there is a 'weighted' object disturbing the load is likely to help reduce tangling and therefore using more than two again may improve this effect.

    These balls can be repeatedly used until they break.

  • Although the balls are quite hard they become a lot softer when heated up in the dryer. By DavidL - UK - 05 November 2012

    Hi Nineo, You could put these balls in your washing machine but I'm not sure what the benefits would be. They would help agitate your clothes but that's also what the drum lifters are for. I have seen products for the washing machine that are simliar in form but supposedly reduce limescale. The real benefit of these balls are that they help reduce the time it takes to dry your clothes - thereby reducing the amount of energy consumption used.

    We would recommend using one ball for a small to medium load, and 2 balls for a larger drying load.

    They are not recommended for this use but may be suitable.

    Yes as the drying temperature should be very similar as any hotter it would damage the clothes before damaging the balls.

Answer this question

How many balls does one need to put in the tumble dryer? One? Two? More? I'm guessing one is a minimum but will three be more efficient than, say two? Or does the Law of Dimishing Returns poke it's ugly face in here?

    It is suggested to use two but more may marginally increase performance.

    Providing the balls do not fill with water is should not be a problem to add these when washing.
