Product Description

Voted one of the Ten Best Green Household Products by The Independent

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 sometime, then you can buy your Ecoball Refill here too.

Product Advantages:

  • Reuse for up to 1000 washes (the same as approx. 50 boxes of washing powder!)
  • Cost less than 3p per wash (normal washing powder costs approx. 25-30p per wash)
  • No more heavy shopping loads full of bulky boxes
  • Perfect for sensitive skin
  • Cuts out the need for a rinse cycle
  • You save money, water and energy, and help the environment

I have used these for many years but did not know how to replace them as my previous source was no longer operating. It was by looking for them, that I discovered your company.

These wash great, and do what they are supposed to - except one of the balls split and made a mess all over the floor, I'm still finding them under the Washing machine, one of the others has split and looks like it might go next and only one still intact out of the three. Theres still loads if powder/microballs in them so a bit of a waste really unless I can get replacement plastic balls?

Q: Hi,
I bought some of these a few months ago and am very pleased with them however I do have one question. How ashall I know when to put the replacement pellets inside the balls? Thanks.

A: The pellets will, over time, dissolve and disappear; therefore, when you can no longer see or hear them, it's time to replace them! (The manufacturer states that this should be after approx 1000 washes)

Heather  asked this question on 17th Jan 2008

Q: Can you use fabric softner with these balls. I know it says that you don't need it, but if you have guests it is nice to make the lining smell nice.

A: According to the manufacturers..."You should find that the garments are naturally soft without the use of fabric softener. If you do miss the synthetic smell we suggest that you only use an Eco softener such as Ecover, but do not add it to the wash. When the wash is complete remove the Ecoballs™ add the softener and switch the machine on to a short rinse" John.
