Wool dryer ball FAQs

WOOL v  PLASTIC DRYER BALLS

Wool dryer balls re much quieter than using plastic dryer balls or tennis balls. Plastic dryer balls are not as environmentally friendly and can shed micro plastics. Wool dryer balls are more durable than plastic balls.


CAN I USE TENNIS BALLS INSTEAD OF WOOL TUMBLE DRYER BALLS?

On a technical level tennis balls work to an extent as they create the air gaps in your laundry which aids drying. However they don't have the softening effects that natural wool has. Tennis balls can also contain plastics and other chemicals which can leach into your laundry or form micro plastics.


HOW LONG DO WOOL TUMBLE DRYER BALLS LAST?

A very long time! We have been using our scooms dryer balls for over two years and they look almost as new.

Scooms Wooly Balls

Recently bought an LG heat pump tumble dryer so can’t really give much of a review. However the balls are very nicely presented and delivery was speedy. I am sure they will assist in the drying process.

Not sure how effective these are…

Can’t fault the product choice, customer service or delivery. All great! Bought these to use in a laundrette tumble dryer, and not sure if I’m using them correctly… haven’t noticed any difference to the drying quicker or preventing sheets getting tangled, but will keep using!

Great product!

I have a washer/dryer which doesn’t dry as efficiently as a dryer on its own would. Items were very creased and often not dry. I’ve been using the Wool Tumble Dryer Balls for several weeks now and I have definitely noticed an improvement! Great product!

Love these dryer balls

Thought I’d try these just for fun but they’re great. I definitely think my clothes comes out less creased and it does seem to cut down on drying time. They are a bit noisy but my tumble dryer is in the garage so I don’t mind.
