- Great Review by Katie
I bought one of these a month ago and it has already paid for itself. We are a family of four and I do maybe three washes a day. I have abused the ball by using it three times a day instead of one a day and the load is probably more than 4kg. However it is holding up well and I do recharge it in the sun when I remember. I am considering buying another couple otherwise I can see it needing to be replaced in a year rather than three. I will probably need to do a hot white wash with detergent to get out stains and whiten whites at some point, but the many pluses (mainly financial) cannot be over expressed! I also like how I don’t have to add powder and softener, I leave the ball in the drum and just add another load - easy. A total no brainer.

- would buy this again Review by Susan
I do gardening for a living. The 1st load I washed with the ball, I looked at the draining wash water, just to see. It was black. When I went to hang my wash, the 1st thing I noticed was that my bath towel was noticeably brighter. Three loads later, I am still happy with it. Other dingy items like work merinos are looking brighter, as well. I have told others about this product, & would buy it again. As a Gisborne surfer, I am happy to not be adding to the detergent load in Poverty Bay.

- Doesn't work well enough Review by Tara
I bought one of these a month or so ago and with each use I feel more and more dissatisfied with it. Laundry doesn't smell fresh after washing, it smells like dirty laundry rinsed out in clean water. We've taken to adding a little washing powder for that "freshly laundered" smell but unless you add the normal amount of washing powder (which would completely defeat the purpose of the ball to begin with), it's not enough. Clothes that go in smelly come out still smelly, just watered down smelly. I have been persevering in the hopes that as the weather warms up and I can start drying washing out in the sun again, that will improve, as I really want a wash solution that does not bother my boy's eczema. But just now I grabbed a woolen jumper my baby had gotten food onto that were washed in a delicates bag as per the instructions and even after two washes, there is still food caked onto the front of the jumper. It's not a stain that needs soaking, it's just caked on and with a little rubbing, it comes off, so it should be a simple wash job - yet two washes later, it's still there. Supposedly, the ball does not have to rub clothes directly to get these types of things clean, as it's recommended to put them in a delicates bag, but this makes the whole "ions stop dirt from clinging" pretty much unbelievable. I am regretting buying one for my mum a week or so ago despite my misgivings, as now I think it was a waste of money. Very, very unimpressed, and considering returning the ball for a refund.

Don't know how it works, but it certainly does! Even my skeptical husband is now happy to use it. I do occasionally find a bit of dirt that has been missed, but this is more than balanced out by not having to re-wash sheets and other items to get rid of residual washing powder.

At first I was a bit skeptical, but I have a septic tank, so keen to reduce detergent and had problems with detergent residue gunking up inside the machine with all the dust from my builder huband's clothes. Then gunk ending up on mine. I have been using the ball for two weeks now and its great! I wash at least once a day no probs. Our socks are whiter than before too. It's worth giving a go!

I was highly sceptical and concerned that I'd spent $80 on the 'king's new clothes', but it really does work. I tested it on my particularly dirty reuseable canvas shopping bag and was genuinely impressed. An added bonus is the lack of detergent residue, which was making some of my clothes look dirtier coming out of the machine than before they went in.I've yet to test it on my delicates and am a bit concerned its rolling around might be a bit harsh on them, so only 4/5 for now.
