Biowashball is an exciting new product which eliminates the need for washing detergents. Scientifically designed and composed of natural ceramics contained in a plastic non-toxic sphere, the Biowashball reduces the risks of allergic reactions linked to the use of detergent, eliminates germs, saves you money and protects the environment.
If you or your children have sensitive skin and suffer from related conditions or allergies such as eczema, by using Biowashball you can wash your laundry without chemical-based washing powders and softeners.
Biowashball is:
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • 100% GREEN - help protect our natural resources
  • Water is detergent free and recyclable plus ideal for septic tanks/wastewater
How Biowashball Works:
Biowashball cleans clothes and linen naturally using unique ceramic ball technology. During the wash cycle, 8 specific Biowash ball ceramics combine to alter the PH of the water, by emitting negative ions which weaken the adherence of dirt on fabric thereby creating an environment in which the dirt can no longer stick to the laundry.
The Biowashball has a pH of about 10 which is equivalent to that of an ordinary chemical detergent, has an antibacterial effect that eliminates bad odours and is hypo-allergenic contributing to your well-being.
The Biowashball is rechargeable using the sun. 2 hours in the sunlight prior to first use and thereafter an hour a month is all that is needed to regenerate the micro ceramics to ensure maximum cleaning and anti-bacterial action.
Biowashball will last for up to 3 years on the basis of one 4.5kg laundry per day. This equates to approximately 1,000 washes and a cost of less than $3 per month. If you have a larger capacity washing machine, use 2 biowashballs for more effectiveness.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I leave my Biowashball in the machine during the rinse cycle?
Yes, you can leave the Biowashball in the machine throughout the entire cycle – the Biowashball will continue its washing action during any rinse cycles.
Can I turn the rinse cycles off?
As there are no chemicals, fillers or residues to remove, there is nothing to rinse out. Once you have rinsed out any trace of dirty wash water, you can reduce or remove any additional rinse cycles if your machine permits it and thus save time, electricity and water.
Can I use cold water?
Yes, you can use cold water with the Biowashball. The maximum temperature recommended for whites and linen, is 50 deg C.
What about my whites?
The Biowashball does not contain bleach or whitener. There are natural products available with non-chemical whitening properties, which can be used to soak whites overnight, should you feel your whites have become a little dull.
Will Biowashball remove stubborn stains?
Biowashball is not a spot and stain remover. As when using ordinary washing powders, spots and stains still have to be pre-treated.
Is Biowashball effective with hard water?
Yes, the Biowashball works in all water types.
Can I use some detergent with my Biowashball?
Yes, you can use a little biodegradable detergent in the machine when using your Biowashball.
Will the Biowashball damage my delicate fabrics?
Washing machines can be very rough on delicate clothes and it is therefore recommended that all delicates be placed in a laundry bag prior to washing.

Have done some research before purchasing this amazing has got a great name worldwide...and I am 100% happy with the results! Washing smells fresh and feels very soft! What a great way to safe money and even more important, to stop my part of water pollution :)

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!

what a awsome product, I love this so much that I am buying 2 more for xmas presents, I have been buying eco friendly washing powder for a long time now but this is so much better with absolutely no chemicals. brilliant

Customer: Nicki   23 Nov 2011

Customer rating:

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.

LOVE THIS!!!! Great investment. It cleans so well (grass stains, toilet training accidents, boys fishing gear etc). I have given it the real test with all the above, and its great... and I love the fact everything smells nice, even though technically there isn't any fagrance... its magic!!! Best purchase - definitely recommended

Was A Bit Dubius But Bought One Any Way Used It Found It Wonderful

Customer: Sharon   06 Aug 2011

Customer rating:

Have only used the Biowashball twice as I have just bought one but I am hooked. I have four dogs continuously coming in and out of the house through their dog door. Two towels capture most of the mud and grime as they come hurtling down the hallway. Great, what a challenge for the Biowashball to see how it stacks up against the standard washing powders. I was amazed it got more muddy paws out of the towels than my standard washing powder! Don't get how they work just know they do!

I have been using the Biowashball for a few months now and don't profess to understand HOW it works, I just know it DOES. Great for the environment and your pocket in the lomg run. Recommend!

Customer: K. de haast   12 May 2011

Customer rating:

The best part is I don't have to think - just check that the ball is in the machine - no powder, no softner - just add dirty laundry and let the machine do the rest - and there's none of that awful detergent residue on the clothes, bedding or towels :)

I bought the Biowashball in February while visiting NZ and have been using it since. It is absolutely an amazing product if you follow the instructions. I can now use my wastewater safely on my vegetable garden and they also grow with vitality. This is a must have for every household. My eczema has also gone. No more detergent for my laundry. Thank you Biowashball.
