How would you like to save time and money by not having to buy and use laundry detergents? You can with the non-detergent laundry ball by SmartKlean. We received the Laundry Ball along with non-toxic stain remover to try and review.
The Laundry Ball consist of a recyclable shell enclosure that contains four different types of balls and magnets, each with their own purpose.
- Alkali ball: Lifts dirt and oil off fabrics by increasing the pH levels in water to the same level of detergents.
- Anti-Microbial Ball: contains nano-structured silver to kill and prevent germs and bacterias.
- Chlorine-removal ball: eliminates chlorine and slackens water surface tension to boost cleaning strength.
- Far infrared ball: radiates negative ions for easier dirt removal.
- Magnets: reduce the size of water clusters (molecule groups) and increase dissolved oxygen. These also help decompose impurities and odorous bacteria.
In addition to housing the balls and magnets, the shell enclosure gently agitates clothing to beat off dirt and grime.
Each of the interior components play a vital role at the molecular level. They perform the same role as normal laundry detergent: reduce the surface tension of the water and increase the pH levels so it is easier for water to penetrate and clean fabrics.
Benefits of the Laundry Ball:
Free of chemical residues:
The Laundry Ball is designed to clean laundry effectively with safe, non-toxic ingredients and without leaving any residues behind on the clothes or the environment. Studies have shown that laundry detergents leave residue on clothing that equals nearly a full scoop of detergent powder or liquid. These chemicals are fat-soluble, which means they are easily absorbed by human skin.
One Laundry Ball replaces an average of 30 laundry products throughout its lifespan. It completely eliminates the cost of laundry detergents and softeners for 365 loads. It can also significantly reduce water and energy costs with shorter wash cycles in cold water (no rinse cycle or hot water necessary
The Laundry Ball naturally expands the fibers, maintaining the softness and elasticity of the clothing. By not leaving any chemical residues behind, it preserves the colors and overall durability of fabrics. The Laundry Ball also removes chlorine from the water.
No chemical runoff. Biodegradeable components, recyclable shell enclosure. water and energy efficient. Reduces packaging materials.
Easy to use:
Simply place the Laundry Ball in the washer with a load of clothes and start the washer.
The stain remover is all natural and 100 percent biodegradable. It contains “no allergens, artificial dyes, artificial fragrances, detergents, hydrogenated oils, petrochemicals, preservatives, or synthetic chemicals. It effectively removes: berry juice, blood, chocolate, dirt, grass, grease, ink, oil, red wine, ring around the collar, tomato sauces, underarm stains, and so much more.”
For light stains: simply wet the stained area, then rub the stick on the stain until it lathers, and wash as normal.
For heavier stains: wet the stained area, rub with the stick until it lathers, scrub the stain are with a brush, then wash as normal.
With regards to its effectiveness, we can attest to the fact that it does work on blood stains. After being scratched by one of our cats and getting blood on a pair of linen pants, it presented a perfect opportunity to try the stain remover and Laundry Ball.
Following the directions for using the stain remover and Laundry Ball, the test began. The first aspect about the Laundry Ball that was nice, no need to measure laundry detergent or fabric softener. Super easy to use, just put it in with a load of wash, start the washer (remember you can only use the Laundry Ball with cold water) and walk away.
Hearing the washer indicate it was finished, the “proof is in the pudding” to coin a phrase, was evident when up removing the pants and noticing that the blood stain was gone. The entire load appeared to be clean as well. One thing you will notice is the lack of a fragrant smell as the Laundry Ball does not contain any fragrance. I often wondered, does the fragrance used in normal laundry detergent mask any odors that may remain in the clothes? Using the Laundry Ball will remove that doubt. What did the clothes smell like, well, clothes, no perfume fragrance. The next big test will come when we have clothes soiled with grass and dirt from working in garden and yard all day, doing another of our DIY yard projects.
So far, we are quite pleased with the performance of the Laundry Ball and stain remover. A bigger test will come in a few weeks when our 7 year, 5 year, and 7 month old granddaughters arrive for a visit, we are sure there will be some interesting loads of laundry that need to be done. We will keep you posted.
