Honestly I don't remember when I bought these balls. I remember buying them because I bought them off of a clearance shelf because the box was damaged. I remember putting the crushed box on my dryer. Then I remember seeing my dog walking around with one her mouth. Since the box was damaged the wobbling of the washer next to the dryer must have moved just enough for the ball to work its way out of the box. Then I remember picking up the ball and hiding it from my dog. I think it was sever months before I actually tried one of the balls in my dryer. The box I bought had two of them. The use of these SourcingMap Fabric Softener Dryer Balls could not be easier. You just simply toss them in to the dryer with your clothes. The balls bounce around and soften the clothes. The balls are light in weight and are all spiked. For my husband's work pants and work shirts they did a pretty decent job with keeping the wrinkles out. However with the black clothes made out of cotton they didn't do much for helping to get the dog hair off. I also enjoy a nice scent on clean clothes and there was pretty much no scent on the clothes at all after using these balls. I think these might work well for someone with sensitive skin who can't handle a lot of irritants that fabric softener liquid or sheets might leave. They worked mostly fine, but since they are too tempting to my dog, and since I can buy a box of fabric softener sheets for a buck, I doubt I will be buying these again. Performance They worked OK as far as getting wrinkles out, but dog hair was not budged at all. Scent Pretty much not scent on clothes at all.
