Why use Alpaca Dryer Balls? August 16 2018
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 and my amazing results.
Using 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
Using 3 dryer balls cuts down on drying time by 25%.
