To decrease drying time and fluff clothes use tennis balls from the Dollar Store.
I use 2 tennis balls in the dryer. This helps to fluff the clothes as well as decrease the drying time. Get the tennis balls from the Dollar store, saves money over those "real" dryer balls. Also helps to save on your energy bills.

Pillows need vacuuming & fluffing. Toss them into the dryer with 2 old tennis balls & a fabric sheet for 30 minutes. The heat & movement of the dryer shake dust particles loose, the pounding of the tennis balls plumps up the fabric & stuffing & the sheet improves the smell, ensuring fresh pillows.
When going on holiday I have made cardboard shapes to represent a matchbox (for cheese portions), a deck of cards (protein portions), the diameter or a tennis ball to remind me that a cup is the size of a tennis ball, and the diameter of a golf ball to remind me that half a cup is the size of a golf ball. Helps me to guess more accurately when I can't weigh.
