How do Eco-balls Work?
The eco laundry balls are placed inside the washing machine and interact with the dirty clothes. Inside these plastic balls are ceramic granules containing substances like calcium carbonate, sodium carbonate, epoxy resin, polyamide resin, sodium citrate, cellulose, iron oxide plus a few more. These substances are said to be hypo-allergenic and have antibacterial elements, while being chemical free at the same time.
While inside the washing machine, these green laundry products are said to be capable of ionizing the water. This means the water becomes filled with positive ions that act as magnets to attract the negative ions. The negative ions referred to, are the dirt or soil attached to the clothes being washed. Hence, as the dirt elements are magnetized, they are lifted out of the fabrics and subsequently combine with the positive ions in the water. This is how the clothes-washing process taking place inside the washing machine tub. The matter of rinsing the clothes now requires less water, less time, and less energy to do the laundry.
The powerful ionizing actions of the ceramic granules make detergent-free laundry cleaning possible, thus upholding the eco-friendly and energy efficient concept in cleaning alternative to replace the traditional laundry detergent.
The positive results of the use of detergent-free laundry products like the Eco-balls were confirmed and noted by present users as well as by the product reviewers. Nevertheless, there are also those with negative views. Let's find out the pros and cons.
