Do they Work?

Let’s get straight to the point. Yes, they do. Your clothes won’t be glimmering in white, or come out perfume-scented as with normal detergents, but they would absolutely turn out clean and fresh after washing them with wash balls.  (Find out more about the science behind wash balls and how they really work)

What’s So Special About Wash balls?

Wash balls, unlike the usual detergents, do not contain toxic ingredients- No bleach, no artificial scents, No Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, No optimisers, No brighteners.  They only contain non-toxic solid pellets with the following ingredients: higher alkyl sulfate, non-ionic surfactants, sodium metasilicate, calcium carbonate, sodium carbonate, sodium tripolyphosphate, cellulose gum.

All these ingredients attract molecules that make up the “laundry soup”. Basically, these ingredients are also found laundry detergents. What makes up a laundry soup? It includes oil residues, ionic solutes and some protein molecules that make up 'dirt or stain'. All these substances are attracted to the pellets, thus, they’re washed away from the fibers of the clothes and effectively, clothes are left clean and fresh.

These pellets release ionized oxygen and negative ions that increase the water’s pH level, making the water in your washing machine more alkaline. Anything alkaline is an effective stain remover.

In addition to these amazing properties’, wash balls are hypoallergenic. Thus, they are safe to use for sensitive skin, especially for washing your baby’s clothes.

Why it’s wiser and more practical to use Wash balls in Laundry?

·     Since pellets in wash balls do not go through the fibers of your clothes, fewer rinse cycles are needed in washing your clothes. One more thing, since you don’t need to rinse off your clothes with soap, you can save more water and electricity. In just one or two rinses, you’re done! This works for lightly soiled clothes though.

·     For very soiled clothes, you may add a little amount of detergent. But for normally soiled clothes, you don’t really have to. Wash balls can do all the work so you can cut down your detergent use by 80%. No more weekly shopping for detergents!

·      Wash balls are affordable and long enduring. Use them once a day and they would last up to 3 years or even longer.

Wash balls are Eco-friendly

This is probably the greatest feature of wash balls that detergents don’t have. They could be very environment-friendly obviously due to their non-toxic and very mild ingredients. Their water residue is safe to be thrown away into the ground. You can even use it to water the plants. Using wash balls regularly would mean less pollution in the sewage water, the lowering of water temperatures and saving more water.
