Ecobola Laundry Ball

I know this post is a bit unusual, but when I find a great product, I feel the need to share. =)

About a month ago I purchased so called laundry balls on Ebay. One for my sister and one for my mother. I wasn't sure if they are gonna work, 'cause there are so many different ones and I don't even know which one is the ''original'' product.
I ended up with Ecobola. I bought it via american Ebay, got it from Thailand and everything that was written on the box was in spanish. Weird.

This is what it looks like:


About Ecobola: It contains three types of ceramic balls which generate negative ions and infrared radiation (which causes lower surface tension of water). Washing your laundry with Ecobola will leave your clothes clean, soft and odor free. It's supposed to last for up to 1500 uses.

I'm not gonna tell you about what it promises, I'm just gonna tell you what it does. =)
* It reduces the use of detergent for 80%. That's great for people with sensitive skin, allergies and other skin conditions and let's not forget about the environment.
* It reduces the use of fabric softener for 80%. Clothes are still soft and smell nice, but you won't have to use as much softener. Your wallet will be happy and so will be the environment.
* It leaves clothes clean, soft, odor free - just like it promises (don't expect miracles though - those nasty baby stains need a larger amount of detergent, but still a lot less than without a laundry ball).

You have to keep in mind that there are different laundry balls on the market. Read the description before you buy it and follow the instructions once you purchase it. =)

I bought 2 Ecobola laundry balls via Ebay for 23€ (for both) with shipping. Now *that* is cheap. I think it already paid off. =D

Do you have a laundry ball? What do you think about it? And if you don't have it - are you considering getting one?

Thanks for looking!

  1. I've seen these in the Gaiam catalog: http://www.gaiam.com/product/eco-home-outdoor/household/greenwash+ball.do and always wondered how they worked. Definitely something I will check out on ebay and compare some prices. Laundry soap has become too damn expensive.

  7. I've heard about that but I'm so happy with using soap nuts (Sapindus Mukorossi) to do the laundry, I've never tried that ball. Soap nuts need no detergent added, and even kids clothes are clean after using them. Love the fact they are odor-free and ecological.

    Most scented detergents give me a headache, and I strongly believe that when I get a headache of something then it's not healthy...
