Not to be confused with Laundry ball.

Dryer balls are pairs of spiky plastic balls for the purpose of helping soften fabrics without chemicals in a tumble clothes dryer.

Green Lane Products Ltd. registered their most marketed design in 2004 as a blue ball with square spikes and a pink ball with round spikes. Several other designs were registered simultaneously. A recent British High Court action against PMS International and pound shop operator Poundland who marketed a similar product was settled out of court.[1]

Green Lane also own European Community Trade Marks for the names "dryerballs(R)" and "dryer balls(R)"
