One ball with no detergent, only ceramic beads thoroughly clean clothes. Have some doubts? I did at first but after the second load I converted.
SmartKlean technical information: The laundry ball is filled with four kinds of ceramic beads, each comprising a combination of different minerals to perform different functions. When these ceramic beads come in contact with water, they form oxygenated water. The water molecules are fragmented into smaller sizes, increasing the water’s dissolution power and enabling better penetration into the fabric’s pores, therefore releasing dirt, grime and odors. Fine or heavy fabrics, colors or whites, the laundry is fresh, safe and clean!
The way the beads roll around inside the SmartKlean Laundry Ball could almost pass as a toy for Kenzie. I tossed the ball into a load of Kenzie's laundry which included some items with food stains. The instructions say that the ball works best when the washing machine is only loaded 3/4 full. Off it went to work. When I pulled out the load and threw it in the dryer I noticed that most all the stains were gone! The only stain remaining was one that was heavy and should have been pretreated (I am not a laundry queen - after shrinking Hub's clothes once he does his own laundry).
(I really want a front loading washer!)
I was so impressed by how clean Kenzie's clothes were without the use of detergent that I tried the SmartKlean ball with my non-sorted laundry. I am very happy to report that my clothes came out as clean as can be. One SmartKlean ball can clean up to 365 loads of laundry (18 lbs a load) or One Year if you do one load per day. Considering that the SmartKlean ball costs $45 that equates to 12 cents per load! I'm not an extreme couponer but I do know that is a fantastic deal.
Besides being great on your wallet, it is very eco-friendly. Just ONE SmartKlean ball is equivalent to 20-40 containers of laundry products! It can also save 6,000-8,000 gallons of water in our rinky dinky washer! I really love this product and am so glad to be using it in our home. Attention Cloth Diaper users -- this ball will be your go to for getting out all the yuck :)
