Mister Steamy

I’ve seen the commercials for this steaming pile er um I mean ball and decided I would give it a go.  I really bought one because I am always forgetting about the last load that I do and it always ends up sitting in the dryer for days before I remember it’s in there.  I end up having to soak something then put it in there so it gets everything else wet so it dries everything so there are no wrinkles.  I thought this might be easier and faster.

So I bought one today and I didn’t know they are hard plastic, almost hard as a rock.  It has a sponge inside of it and you pour 2-4oz of water in there, you can’t just pour it from the tap like the commercial (or picture) shows because it says do not over fill it.  So I used a measuring cup because I don’t want to disobey a direct order from the directions lol.

The dryer only had 3 dress shirts in there and I tossed the rock hard ball in there and turned the dryer on.  Oh my goodness, it was banging in the dryer and it was freaking me out so I went into the bedroom so I wouldn’t have to hear it.  I go back in the kitchen and the dryer isn’t even going anymore.  I open the door and to my surprise everything is wrinkle free.  So all is well afterall.

So I guess if you put it in a dryer filled with towels and shirts and what not then it will be enough to keep it from banging all over the place, I highly doubt it but you never know.

I think what happened was it was so unbalanced that it just stopped.  Thank goodness it has that function to prevent the dryer from breaking down.  So I think from now on when I use it, I’ll only use it on a full load, not just 3 shirts.  Good to know.

The box was $15 at the grocery store and it comes with 2 balls.  I guess if you’re buying something with balls you need a complete pair otherwise you feel off balance.  Hmmm maybe that’s why my dryer shut down, it didn’t have the balls to finish it’s cycle.
