This from the "stretcher"...seemed fitting.
When I bought my new washer and dryer, the man that installed
them told me not to use softeners or dryer sheets. Instead put
three tennis balls in with the clothes while they are drying.
You can use them over and over for months on end. This
eliminates waiting to add softeners at the right time and the
expense of softener and/or dryer sheets. I have not used dryer
sheets or softener since and my clothes are nice and soft.
