Ecoballs® wash system care for your clothes, your washing machine and your environment.
Ecoballs® stand for everything we believe in; they are natural, environmentally friendly, efficient and cost-effective, and deliver a clean, fresh, sensitive alternative to conventional washing powders that pollute our water supply, reduce the lifespan of our washing machine and break down the very clothing they're supposed to care for.
Environmentally friendly Ecoballs® are a scientific breakthrough in cleaning technology. Just place the three Ecoballs® in your washing machine instead of detergent. They are reuseable for up to 1000 washes and costs on average 3p per wash. There are no harsh chemicals so less pollution. 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). Ecoballs® softens clothes even in hard water. As your clothes will be softer no fabric conditioner is necessary. Ecoballs® are also anti-bacterial and kills Escherichia Coli and Staphylococcus Aureus.
