“They do exactly what they ‘re supposed to do they float in the wash collecting lint and hair so it doesn’t stick to your clothes or clog up the drain,” one reviewer wrote. “I didn’t think these would work, I was sure I had wasted my money, but they work perfectly.”
Another recommended putting a few of these in your wash, which is a great idea for those larger loads!
“If you don’t want all your wash to come out covered in lint and hair, you *need* lint traps — yes, I mean multiple lint traps,” the reviewer suggested. “It’s like night and day, really.”
