Updated: Oct 21, 2019
On average, people spend $180 to $600 on detergent alone annually. To make matters worse, many of these detergents are filled with harsh chemicals, which can make it hard for people who are sensitive to the detergent or suffer from eczema. That’s where SmartKlean comes into play.
SmartKlean has developed a laundry ball that eliminates the need to buy multiple bottles of detergent a year. There laundry ball has the ability to clean and leave clothes fresh for approximately 365 loads. While leaving no traces of chemicals.
The laundry ball itself
The ball itself is composed of Eco-friendly thermoplastic elastomer which is similar to rubber. What you will find inside the ball are 4 different types of ceramic beads made from 80 different non-toxic earth minerals. Each bead plays a role in keeping your clothes clean, chemical free, and has no negative impact on the environment.
Maintains the integrity of the clothing, making it look and feel like new for longer. No harsh chemicals that will diminish the value of the clothing.
Hot water & rinse cycles
The cost of hot water and rinse cycles would also be eliminated, since the laundry ball can be used with cold water and leaves no residue on any of your clothes.
The cost of the laundry ball is $45 on their site, this may not seem cheap, but in comparison to detergent that cost $13- $25 each, the cost is worth it.
If you’re anything like me, you hate using detergent. It ruins the clothing after a few washes and colours always fade. Something like this is definitely better for keeping your clothes newer for longer and I mean hey, you're not only saving money, you’re also helping the environment by eliminating plastic bottles of detergent and putting no harsh chemicals into the pipes. Who doesn’t want to feel good about helping the planet!
