Laundry – no matter who you are, everyone has to do laundry at some point in their life. If you can find something that makes the laundry easier, then that’s a wonderful thing! Well that’s just what the people at Robby Wash did. They have developed a wash ball that you can simply toss into your washer and forget about. Perfect for if your husbands help with the laundry too! Robby Wash is sold exclusively by Oransi in the United States.
It works with both top-loading and traditional washing machines, and it’s a LOT lighter than the huge boxes of laundry detergent they sale at the store! The ball is full of tiny pellets with activated macromolecules that are gradually released through your wash, dissolving dried-in stains by generating ions which activate the water molecules. When the pellets wear down enough so that the ball is less than 75% full, simply add more pellets to the ball. Each ball is designed to last 2-3 years, and comes with three extra packets of macro-molecule pellets. That works out to $33 for 1 YEAR worth of cleaning! How awesome is that!
We tested the pink robby wash, which is meant for cold water washing. This worked out great for us, since we rarely wash anything in warm or hot water. My husband loves not having to find detergent or measure anything out. I typically take the ball out and place it on the side of the washer between loads to make sure it dries well, but he leaves it in the washer and I haven’t had any problems with that either. It does have a slight fragrance, so my husband thought I wouldn’t like it (I’m allergic to a lot of fragrances), but this one didn’t bother me. It is hypo-allergenic as well. There are only a few laundry detergents I can tolerate, and this is one of them!
We’ve both found that the ball works just as well at cleaning as our current laundry soap does. We haven’t tested the stain stick that comes with it yet, but it’s nice that you get one! I think this would be a great gift for people going off to college – it would be nice to not have to lug around a bunch of laundry soap to the Laundromat!
The robby wash is designed in France to meet the strict compliance requirements of the Europe and contains no phosphates or chlorine. My one complaint is that it does contain Sodium laurylsulfate, which is common in many other detergents, but not the one we currently use. The Robby Wash ball has received safety certifications from REACH, RoHS. Each ball is made of durable ABS materials. You can read more about Oransi’s environmental footprint here.
