I love natural cleaning, but there are lots of store-bought products that the natural options can’t compete with. Up until this point, one of those things has always been laundry detergent. Not to mention, I haven’t felt like I’ve had the time to make my own. (It’s more time-intensive than other natural products.) I work. I have a toddler. My house needs vacuuming.
Crystal Wash sent me their laundry “detergent” balls to try. I was super skeptical (they sat in the box for a while), but as soon as I tried them, I haven’t looked back. I completely shocked at how well they cleaned my clothes and how fresh they smelled. Not fresh like flowers, just fresh nothingness. Like they were cleaned in a natural spring and left to dry in the sun. No kidding.
Here’s the long and short of it. They..
- last for 1,000 washes (that’s three years if you do a load of laundry a day!)
- raise the pH of your water to help lift stains (much like hydrogen peroxide)
- are recharged in the sun (every 2-3 weeks)
- are completely natural (no dyes or chemicals)
- work as well as laundry detergent (based on two independent studies)
- have a 60 day money-back guarantee
For very hard stains, you still need to pre-treat just as you would with detergent. You can use a mixture of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and dish soap in a paste. Rub on, let sit, and wash as normal!
I have read some less than glowing review online, and for that reason I was super skeptical. But once I tried the product, and saw how well it worked for me personally, I knew I had to share it with you. We have been using them every day!
Do you use laundry detergent? Do you make your own? Have you tried Crystal Wash? Would love to know your comments below!
