Laundry is a part of everyones life and there is no way to get out of doing it! The only question is, what detergent should I use? There are so many detergents out there on the market, but the reality is that many detergents found in the laundry aisle contain harmful chemicals, dyes, and ingredients you can’t even pronounce! I came across SmartKlean last year through a blog post and was really impressed! I later came across it through a daily deal site and decided to give it a try.
SmartKlean is a non-detergent laundry ball! It is filled with 4 different kinds of ceramic bead, comprising of different minerals to perform different functions. When the beads come into contact with the water, they form oxygenated water. This means that the water molecules are fragmented into smaller sizes, which increase the water’s dissolution power and enables better penetration into the fabric, which releases dirt, grime and odors!
Sounds pretty cool, huh?
The SmartKlean laundry ball is safe to use on all fabric types as well as colors and whites! The laundry ball has no fragrance, therefore your laundry will come out smelling neutral after every wash but if you want a fragrance you can add pure essential oils to the wash (by adding a few drops to a cup of water and pouring it into the soap dispenser before or during the wash cycle). SmartKelan will clean on its own, but it can be used along with other detergents, preferably natural and organic ones. Adding Borax to SmartKlean or any other washing booster will just aid in the cleaning of the laundry.
To use your laundry ball only fill your washer to 3/4 full and then place the laundry ball on top, this allows the ball to freely travel through the laundry. The laundry ball does not need to be removed in between washes and can be left inside, ready to go for your next load. To maintain the effectiveness of the laundry ball, place it in the sun for a couple of hours after every 30 washes (the sunlight removes the moisture content of the ceramics).
