Eco Balls for laundry

I've just bought some of these Eco Ball's on ebay.

Eco-balls save money and the planet! And yes, they do really work.
Just place the three eco-balls in your washing machine instead of washing powder. Together they produce ionized oxygen that activates the water molecules naturally and allows them to penetrate deep into clothing fibres to lift dirt away. They are reuseable for over 1,000 washes and cost on average 3p per wash (compared to 25-30p for normal washing powder). There are no harsh chemicals so less pollution. The rinse cycle can be shortened saving water and electricity. They will not fade bright colours or damage clothing fibres. Hypoallergenic so suitable for sensitive skins/eczema (including babies and children). Eco-balls soften clothes even in hard water, and no fabric conditioner is necessary. They are also anti-bacterial and kill Escherichia Coli and Staphylococcus Aureus.
Eco-balls come with a 30-day money back guarantee, and include free refill pellets and a stain remover.

I'm very keen to see if they work. I spend a fortune on washing powder for our machine and I'm always looking for ways to reduce the bills and help the environment. I'll let you know if they work.

I'm interested to know if they work too. With having our own washer/dryer soon, anything to save money will be great.

Where do you get them?

I bought them on ebay. Type in eco balls and you'll see them. It seems to be the cheapest place to get them. They cost me about £28 including postage. And yes, they do work! We have been using them for over a week and all our clothes have been clean. They have a different smell to them, but its still a clean smell. They will save us a fortune.
