I emailed Friendsheep and followed their directions to minimize the stinky fuzzballs, but it didn’t really help bcz it still made my towels stinky and that’s all I could smell when I opened the dryer. What did help was throwing them into the dryer as instructed, by themselves, BUT about 4/5 separate times on the lowest temperature setting. I didn’t want them to fry. Now the smell is barely noticeable and no longer smells like lavender-scented barn animals. So far, I like the results when I use them but it’s tbd if I’ll keep up with this method for the long-term.
