The orginal Eco Balls! Ecozone Ecoballs® are an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional washing liquid and powder. Simply put the three Ecoballs® into your washing machine instead of detergent, et voila! Clean clothes. Eco balls ionize the water, allowing it to get deep into your clothes and lift the dirt away. Good for up to 1000 washes, which works out cheaper than 3p a load. (Based on a 30 minute cycle). Rinse cycles can be shortened, and the Eco Balls won't damage or fade clothing. Also, they are fully hypoallergenic, which is good news for people sensitive to phosphates and optical brighteners.
If you've been using Ecoballs for some time, then you can buy your Ecoball Refill here too.

These do last a long time so are cost effective

Have used for years for my laundry. These are replacement balls of the new design as the previous new design balls broke (split/cracked) after about a year - could this be due to the lack of the foam protectors that used to cover the balls?

These wash balls are great for most jobs. I find with whites they are not really up to the job and some stains need extra stain remover. Overall it is a great idea and cheap and chirpy. One set of balls lasts me good three years. Once the seem not to do a good job anymore you can get refillsâ€¦ or should. Last time I got those refills easily from Natural Collection but this year, when I needed them they were not available. I could find some though elsewhere after a quick internet research. As long as you can get the refills, they are very good and as far as I can see very environmentally friendly!

Q: Does it take out the oudor/smell of the clothes or do you need fabric softner for that?
A: It shouldn't be necessary to use any other products, however if you miss the smell of fabric softener, then the manufacturer recommends that you use an eco softener such Ecover Fabric Softener. Rather than adding it to the wash, when the wash is complete, remove the Ecobals, add the softener and switch the machine onto a short rinse. I hope this helps, Jo.

Q: Can you use ecoballs in top loading machines?
How big a load (in pounds) can they deal with?
A: Ecoballs can be used in Top Loaders, Front Loaders, Twin Tubs and industrial use machines. The manufacturer suggests that if your machine has twice the load capacity of a standard domestic machine then use two sets of Ecoballs™ for maximum results. I hope this helps, Jo.
