We've discovered a whole new clean that reduces soaps and petrochemicals in the Earth's water supply and helps alleviate allergies and skin irritations. Simply add the detergent-free Wonder Ball to laundry (pre-treat any stains) and a small amount of detergent (or none), and a proprietary blend of minerals and magnetics within the ball lowers the water's surface tension, making it "wetter" so it can clean fabric fibers more deeply. Washing laundry with the Wonder Ball only and no laundry soap also eliminates the detergent residue that aggravates allergies and irritates skin. Made in the USA.

Wonder Ball Features:
  • Works in hard or soft water
  • Use with top- or front-loading washing machines
  • Can use to hand wash delicates
  • Lasts about two years or 2,000 washes
  • Do not use in the dryer

Print"My wash comes out clean and fresh with the Wonder Ball, and I only use a tablespoon of detergent per load. Even the dog bedding is odor-free— it's the best find of the century!" -- Claudia, Gaiam Merchandising

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy this Ball After finally talking my mom into going dryer sheet free - essentially, I insisted she only use the dryer balls I had purchased - she was eager to hear what else I had in mind for the laundry. Since she was primed and ready for experimenting (a rarity, I assure you) I finally purchased this ball I've been eying for some time. She test ran it before I had the chance to (didn't have enough laundry yet for a full load) and she ran over to tell me when it was done that it worked SOOOOOO well. She even told me to take back all the other detergent, though I said we could keep it for when we had stuff that needed some crazy presoaking (doesn't happen too often, but we have a dog, two cats, and do some gardening - so it does happen.) This leaves your clothes soft, clean and fragrance free, so if you're looking for some nice scent, try adding a floral sachet to your laundry in the dryer. It probably won't take out really bad stains and heavily soiled items will need an extra wash - or at least a longer soak - but all in all this is an excellent purchase. I'm especially pleased with the concept of recharging this item rather than merely tossing it away. This certainly makes the cost more than worth the purchase. May 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great without Laundry Detergent I tried this without laundry detergent and it works fine. The rashes I had on my skin from using detergent are gone since I've been using this. I gave one to my boyfriend as well. He works in construction and really gets his clothes filthy and he says it works better than regular detergent. July 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by wonder ball I use it for my infant daughter's clothing. So far it is working out well. I notice that it does not get whites very white again. August 9, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it, you should really buy one! This is the most amazing purchase I have made this year, so glad I went a head and tried it out! It really does work, even get's my running, yoga and ski clothes clean and fresh! The first time I washed my sweaty items with the wonder ball, they needed a second round, but now they are fresh and clean after just one wash with the this magical little ball. I will never go back to detergent! February 15, 2012

I'm chemically sensitive and can not use anything that has plastic or rubber in it. Also are the minerals organic? I understand the process of the magnetics and that is very cool!

Answer: 
Just let the ball sit in a bucket or sink of water for about 20 min. Then hand wash your clothes! The ball weighs down the water just like soap so it will remove all dirt, allergens, and tiny particles easily!!

Answer: 
This item would probably not be as effective with hand washing, as it is meant to be used with a washing machine. You do need to use a considerable amount of water for the reaction to occur, so you would need to wash whatever the item was in a large tub. You would also need to spend a considerable amount of time agitating the water and item to mimic the action of a washing machine.

I am thinking about reusing the water from the washing machine for watering the garden. Would that be OK?

Thanks!

Answer: 
You've probably gotten the answer to this already, but just in case, I would say yes - absolutely you could reuse the laundry water for your garden... so long as you don't use a stain spot remover on anything in the load, of course. I definitely suggest trying the product - so easy & beneficial in so many ways!
