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. I didn't think these would work, I was sure I had wasted my money , but they work perfectly! Clothes come out of the washer with significantly less lint which helps a lot when line-drying clothes. Definitely recommend!
I have a semi-old washing machine - not old enough to replace yet - and it creates a lot of lint. I was having issues with my sink clogging, so I bought these and have been a savior!
I was very surprised at how well these actually work. They catch so much lint. I use them with my Della portable washer machine and they make such a great difference. When I don't use them my clothes come out looking like I rolled around in cat fur.
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. Who would've thought an 8 lb. max wash tub would require four floating lint traps?? But it does, for me especially. I have a black long-haired cat. But the purchase of sets of both the aforementioned products made my grimace at the sight of the first few loads I washed transform into the contented grin on my face that is there now as I get my clothes and linens ready to dry. It's like night and day, really. I got them in the mail after I bought the agitators. The description for the agitators said they'd catch some hair and lint. They don't. But they do clean the clothes better, and they loosen the lint and hair so that these handy little lint traps can catch them. And they do. My photos are 100% legit. I didn't alter anything at all, not the size or the light level or anything else. I have experimented with them a bit. A full load needs all four of them, and don't overfill. They need plenty of water to do their stuff. For a half load, maybe 2 will do. I didn't find one to be terribly effective, but as previously mentioned, I have special laundering needs. The type of material also needs to be taken into account. For a load of towels, I'd put them all in, regardless of the size of the load. Just always make sure they have enough water to swirl around freely. I've sat and watched them go for the entire wash cycle. It'll seem as though they aren't doing much but then you'll take them out and see they've all caught a good amount. All in all, these turned out to be very useful to me - and more than lived up to their hype. If you have a mini washer, or even just a full sized top loader that you don't feel catches enough of your laundry debris, give these guys a go. You won't be disappointed.
