The company that recently introduced this innovative product to the U.S. is called Oransi. Founded in 2009 by a group of people with decades of experience in the air quality and home cleaning products industries, Oransi provides new green cleaning products from around the world to U.S. consumers – including HEPA air purifiers, ionic air purifiers for rooms and refrigerators, and of course green laundry products.
The laundry ball contains macro-molecules of laundry detergent that look like little balls. The box contains three more little packs of macro-molecule granules, as well as a stain stick to pre-treat stains if necessary. Each Robby Wash pack lasts in the washer up to 12 months. The detergent contains no phosphates and no chlorine. In addition to being environmentally-friendly, one Robby Wash pack will save more than $100 over 120 washes – it costs just $32.95. The product can be used in top-loading and front-loading washers.
Robby Wash is easy to use – simply place it in the washer. That's it! No measuring, no spilling, no mess. Each ball is made of durable ABS materials. There is no need to take it out of the washing machine after the laundry's done - just don't put it in the dryer. If allowed to dry between uses, the Robby Wash will last longer. One you've used up the granules, you can buy economical refills that allow each Robby Wash ball to last two to three years. I found the ball cleaned my clothes just as effectively as other traditional detergents I've used. It leaves behind a gentle, fresh scent of clean.
The Robby Wash ball comes in blue and fuchsia. Despite what my daughter thought, it's not because we wash boys' clothes with the blue ball and girls' clothes with the pink one. The blue ball can be used in either cold water or hot water. The fuchsia Robby Wash Ball is formulated to specifically clean colored laundry items and be used in cool water.
One lucky reader will win a Robby Wash Laundry Ball Pack of their choice (blue or fuchsia) - that's a year's worth of detergent!
