I'm a skeptic when it comes to not using laundry soap. I have stinky people clothes and icky diapers I wash. Have you ever tried washing clothes or cloth diapers without soap? It doesn't come out smelling very clean.
I actually started by cleaning my washing machine. I filled it with hot water, added 1 quart of bleach, let it sit for an hour, then ran it through a full wash cycle (empty). Then did it again, but with distiller white vinegar instead of bleach. Then wiped it all down and even took the fabric softener agitator apart and cleaned it (even though I never use fabric softener it was gross).
Then I tried my Crystal Wash balls.
These are an amazing washing creation. I was pretty sure my clothes were going to come out smelling... well... Unclean. I actually started with a load of diapers. Yes. We're starting off playing hard ball! I did my normal routine of two full wash cycles. The only difference is I dropped the Crystal Wash balls into the load instead of soap. When it was done, I did the sniff test. My diapers actually smelled like nothing! No smell! This is amazing to me!
I've done several loads of towels, adult laundry and children's laundry. The kid laundry that has wet underpants from accidents. It all comes out smelling of nothing! Then, after 2 to 3 weeks you just set the balls in the sun to recharge the crystals. I do mine weekly because of the amount of wash loads I do.
I'll admit, I was proven wrong. I was pretty sure that this wasn't going to work. You DO still need to pretreat for stains. So, keep something on hand for those grease, food, grass, or whatever spots. My diapers still need the sun bleaching for the stains. However, with the Crystal Wash balls lasting up to 1000 wash loads, I'll not have the extra soap expense.
