eco balls


Original Eco Balls laundry kit – supposed to lasts for 1,000 washes! Inside each ball are mineral salts that very very disintegrate as you use them. After about 750 washes (2 to 3 years or more!) open the balls and add the refills provided. Place the three eco balls in your washing machine instead of washing powder, together they produce ionized oxygen that activates the water molecules naturally and allows them to penetrate deep into clothing fibres to lift dirt away. They apparently will not fade bright colours or damage clothing fibres. Eco balls are hypoallergenic so they are suitable for sensitive skins/eczema (including babies and children). Eco balls soften clothes even in hard water, and no fabric conditioner is necessary. They are also anti-bacterial and kill Escherichia Coli and Staphylococcus Aureus.

WOW! Anyone have any experience with these??

  1. Yup. And they’re freakishly good. I must admit I was skeptical, but socks, after a wash, no matter how hard you sniff, smell of nothing.

    It’s like magic. Ionized magic.

  2. Yep. They do clean your clothes (unless they’re really grubby) but they don’t have that nice clean clothes smell. It’s tempting to use a fabric softener with them so they smell nice but that kills the ecoballs (apparently).

  3. Dave,

    Could you use a fabric softening sheet in the dryer instead of liquid fabric softener in the washer?

  4. The “nice clean clothes smell” is just a bunch of chemicals. I’ve never really understood how chemicals equal “clean fresh”.

  5. Any recommendations on where to buy this in the states? All the places I’ve found so far that sell it are in Europe.

  6. I bought these in “Aldi” in Cork, Ireland. That makes them available everywhere Aldi, the german supermarket, goes. The packaging looked so good but I didn’t believe they’d work. But work they do!
