A pack of 6 wash balls that can be used instead of washing powder. Can be used repeatedly and last for ages. Only £5.95, eco wash balls usually cost around £25. Wash balls will save you a lot of maney in the long run and although I haven't tried this brand, I've found the ones I've used to be very good and have saved loads of money!

For some reason not showing on the ALDI website, maybe only available instre but plenty were available today in the Meanwood store, Leeds. Worth a look!

Sounds like an eco-tastic idea, but I bet your clothes smell like ass after a week or so.

Darling, I'm not a sweaty girl, maybe I might smell like an ass if I left my clothes on for a week, but I tend to change mine daily. xx.

I do believe it was a jab at the effectiveness of the balls at cleaning clothes rather than a jab at your personal hygiene.

Or did I miss the memo about the HUKD bitching hour?

i just started using eco-balls and they are fab. even using them to clean the babies nappies. seriously id reccommend them. well worth it. esp at this price heat added

You are correct, I am concerned that the balls will not provide clothes with a 'freshly laundered' fragrance. I did not intend to cause upset.

Allow me to rephrase my initial statement:

These wash balls sound like an eco-tastic idea, but I bet that clothes, regardless of who owns them, smell like ass after a week or so of being washed with the 'wash balls' as I do not believe they contain any type of fragrancing agent.

The word 'ass' in the sentence above may be substituted for any word that the reader would prefer to use to refer to a smell that is unpleasant or stale.

I trust that this clarifies the matter. :thumbsup:

they dont contain fragrance no but they do clean, and deodarise too. they just dont leave a n artificial smell. you can add essential oil to your wash such as lavendar (calming for babies) or you can add bounce sheets to tumble dryer. or ironing water when ironing.

alternatively you can add softner, for the smell, after they washed, take balls out and rinse with softner. though they are soft. read up about them before critising them. they are even antibacterial

Ive used some of these, though not these specific ones, they seem to work fine until about 3 weeks on your washing machine stinks....the dirt seems to come off your clothes and promptly sticks to the innards of your machine where the balls dont reach and leaves a 'rotting' odour - hence wouldnt recommend :?

These were available from 15th Feb.

I wasn't criticising the product directly, I was expressing my thoughts on how I imagined it would perform. I didn't say I had tried the product, or researched it. All I commented on was how I imagined it'd leave your clothes smelling.

Whoops!!

Bogroll, you ddn't offend me, I was just being silly. I agree with you about clothes smelling stale after a while. Tbh hat I tend to do is add a couple of drops of lavendar oil and every so oftern add a bit of fabric conditioner to add softness and a nice scent to the clothing. However I think they're a great money saver especially for anyone who has children.

I'm thinking of getting these or similar and would welcome your advice, please.

Have you used them for a long time?

If so, have you experienced the unpleasant side-effect mentioned at post #8 ?

Hi there,

I haven't seen any of the side effects described in post , however it probably depends on the brand that you used. I bought mine from John Lewis last summer and they're still going strong. I've hardly bought any washing powder for nearly a year now and our clothes are always clean. However they're not for everyone, clothes have no scent on them (although a few drops of lavendar oil sorts this!) Tbh I thought these would've been voted far hotter on here, but I suppose ther're not video games, food or dvds!!!!:roll:

Many thanks for your helpful reply.

And yes, I take the point in your last sentence - so true! But at least I have added some heat!

Warm regards.
