This £2.50 Ball From The Range Can Knock £100 Off Your Energy Bills


In the spirit of savvy savings, let's talk about a game-changer for your laundry routine that's light on the pocket and heavy on efficiency. Here’s a find that’ll keep your coins jingling: a £2.50 gizmo from The Range that's chopping down energy bills left and right.

I'm talking about Dryer Balls, folks. These spiky companions to your clothes tumble their way through the dryer, slashing drying times and nixing the need for pricey fabric softeners. Lynsey Hope at The Sun has put these to the test, and the results are staggering: up to £100 off your yearly energy expenses.


Here’s the scoop: by increasing airflow, these dryer balls reduce drying time significantly. You're not just saving money; you're also getting softer clothes and cutting down on ironing time. Trust me, that's a double win.

Lynsey Barber's report dives into the details of her personal experience. As a mum with endless laundry, she found that tossing a couple of these balls with her loads cut down a clothes cycle by 20%, and a towel load saw a similar reduction.

Now, let’s talk numbers - because that’s what we’re here for. With typical use, Lynsey calculated a nifty saving of £106.08 per year. That's not small change, especially when we're all feeling the pinch.

Consumer expert Martyn James echoes the sentiment, highlighting the energy-sucking nature of wet appliances. His advice is Full loads, eco modes, and a vigilant eye on the lint drawer to keep your machine humming efficiently. And don't forget, a lower wash temperature can cut costs too.


So, the verdict is, It's a resounding yes from the cost-cutting community. Dryer Balls are a pocket-friendly, environmentally conscious addition to your home. And I'll bet they'll become a staple in your laundry arsenal.

As Tom Church, Co-Founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, neutrally sums it up, "Innovative solutions like dryer balls offer consumers an option to manage household expenses without compromising on their daily routines."

There you have it, Deal Hunters. It's not just about finding the best bargains; it's about making smart, cost-effective choices for everyday living. Stay thrifty!

I will go the The Range tomorrow and hopefully buy one or two.

My local launderette has double the price of 10 minutes drying from £1 to £2 for 12 minutes.


Thank you..


Just do not use a dryer, that will save a lot more money. There are alternatives to use for drying clothes ie heated rail etc. dryers.


kevanstewart that is false economy unless you have a dehumidifier, in which case you might as well have a tumble dryer


That sounds amazing I must give them a go. Even if they don't work I can use them as a ball or hand strengthener.


I have been using these 'things' for a very long time, years and years(I think they were originally only sold via QVC). The only problem is that they eventually go very brittle because of the intense heat from the TD. However, makes a good toy for the dog and once the prongs have worn down to a stubble you get good grip for throwing, so the dog gets plenty of exercise.
