I have to admit- I am not a fan of doing laundry! Part of that is due to the fact that I have to go to the basement to do laundry, an unfinished basement. And the other part is just that it’s a multi-step job (sort, wash, dry, fold, and put away) and then it repeats itself over and over and over!
So I’m all for trying something that might possibly speed up my laundry time or make it easier and save me money in the meantime. That something happened to be an ultra high efficiency hypoallergenic Robby Wash Laundry Ball by Oransi.
How it works: Its activated macromolecules are gradually released through the wash, dissolving dried-in stains by generating ions which activate the water molecules. This increase in the pH enables the activated molecules to penetrate deep into the fabrics and attach themselves to the stains. As the motion of the drum agitates the clothes, the stains come away easily from the fabric and dissolve in the water.
I tried out the blue Robby Wash Laundry Ball which can be used in both hot and cold water. The laundry ball is also very economical since it’s made to last up to a year and retails for just $32.95. Plus it works with both front load and top load washing machines.
The laundry ball was definitely very easy to use- just throw it in the wash (and it handled an extra large load). I did notice that a few stains were still on some of the clothes even after the wash. But I didn’t use the included stain stick every time so they may come out with a re-wash. I also didn’t really notice any ‘fresh’ smell to the clothes afterward, just no smell at all, but I always use a scented dryer sheet so that wasn’t an issue. And I love that the Robby Wash Ball is going to save me money throughout the year and maybe make a chore I dislike a little more bearable.
