Imagine washing your laundry without soap. Banishing environmentally damaging detergents is exactly what Ecozone hopes to accomplish with their Ecoballs.
All you do is put three of Ecoballs in with your wash and your clothes come clean. They're re-usable for about 1,000 loads. Skeptical? Read a review after the jump...
Ecoballs are filled with pellets containing mineral oxides and non-ionic surfactants. They're phosphorous-free and anti-bacterial. The fine people at SmartPlanet tried them out and found that they do work!
Their major complaints are that the clothes are left with "no scent at all except for wetness" and the balls must be removed immediately after the wash or they'll rot prematurely. SmartPlanet also had trouble contacting the Ecozone to get more information on the ethics behind the company and product.
