Every hear of the Robby Ball? We in the US are finally able to use what Europeans have already fallen in love with. The Robby Ball is a new way of washing the laundry that will save you lots of money AND eliminates tons and tons of potential landfill that traditional liquid or powder detergents can't escape from.
When I first tried out the Robby ball, I was a little skeptical. I mean, how long can those little detergent thingies last inside the ball anyhow? Surely they'd dissolve in a few washes, right?
I am happy to report that after using the ball WAY more than is recommended on the packaging (we have 3 kids that play soccer and 2 cats that can't find the litter box; our washing machine is ALWAYS running), I have yet to notice any real disintegration to the detergent balls! They will last for a year, for sure! Do you know what that means to me? A year without buying jug after jug of liquid detergent? The spillage and wasted soap that I can't get from the bottle is no more! And having my 11 year old do the laundry is WAAAAY easier this way!
Want to try out a Robby ball yourself?
Check out the Oransi site and see if their prices compute into your yearly allowance for laundry detergent. I'm betting that you spend at LEAST 3-4 times that amount over a 12 month period! If you'd like to win one yourself, follow this giveaway's instructions and you may be the lucky winner of your own Robby Ball! I'll pick the winner on Saturday, July 3rd.
