I have a fairly new dryer and clean the lint filter like I'm supposed to. Sometimes my clothes don't feel dry though, even using the "more dry" cycle. I was told to try dryer balls instead of dryer sheet fabric softener. Which ones are the best? I've seen wool ones, plastic ones, ones for different colors....are they really cheaper in the long run? Will they actually dry my clothes faster, as claimed? What is your experience with them? Thanks in advance.
We have a rangehood vented directly outside. The vent tube was chalked all around when it was installed. Is there any way to prevent the warm household air from escaping out the vent when it is not in use?
