Dryer balls are simply felted balls that bounce around in your dryer. You just throw 3 to 6 balls in with the load and here is what they do.......
- absorb moisture from the clothes, cutting the drying time by 25 to 50%
- help reduce static cling
- soften the clothes
- can lightly scent clothing by adding essential oils (optional)

Once you have a set of six balls made all you need to do is sprinkle a bit of essential oil, lavender is my favourite, on the balls and throw them in with your load of wet clothes.
SIMPLE BUT VERY EFFECTIVE.....GIVE THEM A SPIN!!
