If you have been shopping for dryer balls for any length of time, then I’m sure by now you’ve come across the name Dyson. But what’s so great about them? What’s so great about this brand that it has become a household name? Well, to begin with, they are made out of very high-end material. This is an extremely important feature to take note of because while high-end, it still needs to be able to dry your clothes effectively, it also needs to be extremely durable and able to withstand constant use.
Speaking of constant use, you have probably run into the issue of them wearing out on you from constant use. While some people can just throw away their old dryer balls after they’ve used them a few times, others have a much more persistent problem with them breaking down or getting torn apart easily. The truth is, while you can simply replace the ball on your machine, there isn’t any way to extend its life and keep it going without adding in some extra effort. You can, however, take care of your dryer balls the right way to lengthen their lifespan and make sure that they will work effectively the whole time you have them.
If you’re looking to get the most out of your Dyson dryer, then you need to know exactly how to properly clean them. The wrong detergent can cause your Dyson ball to tear apart quickly, which is why you should only ever use the kind of detergent that’s recommended for Dyson products. Also, it’s important that you don’t try to beat around the bush with the cleaner in order to get your dryer balls clean. Sure, they’ll get dirty quicker with all that rubbing, but that shouldn’t be the point. The point is to clean them gently. And when you do, you’ll find that they dry faster and work better than ever.
So, what are the best ways to get your dryer balls clean? The best way to get them clean it with warm water and a mild detergent. Mix your dryer ball with a cup of warm water and use the solution to carefully scrub the area that needs cleaning. Rinse it off and then repeat this process until the entire area is thoroughly clean.
If you want your dryer balls to stay as fresh as the day you bought them, then you also need to be careful with where you store them. Never throw your dryer ball in a drawer or box – it’s not going to do your machine any good, nor will it prolong its life. Put your dryer ball somewhere where it’s easy to access and clean. Some people even hang their dryer balls on their hooks, if they have extra space.
When you buy a new dryer, the manufacturer will supply you with an attachment for the dryer balls. That’s the thing that connects the two ends of the heating element together. If you leave the attachment plugged into the dryer, the heating element won’t heat up and the dryer balls won’t come out. If you’ve unplugged it, then your dryer balls may still be inside, but they’ll only be a little bit damp.
Once you’ve cleaned the dryer ball with a mild detergent, then rinse it off with water. Make sure that the water runs off of the dryer ball, and not back into the dryer. To get it completely clean and dry, you can either blow the detergent out of the ball, or you can use the vacuum cleaner. A vacuum will ensure that the dirt isn’t left behind.
Once your dryer ball is as clean and as shiny as can be, store it in a sealed container. Don’t try to rekindle a fire yet. You should wait at least forty-five minutes between attempts at cleaning the dryer balls. The longer that you leave them, the more likely it is that they’ll become gunked up. If they become gunked up, you’ll have to scrub them away before you can safely rekindle a fire. This will also make the cleaning process much easier and faster.
