Want to join my laundry experiment?

Washing Cloth Diapers

Come on! Who wouldn’t want to spice up their laundry routine?!

I wasn’t exactly looking for a change to my routine but while I was shopping on one of my favorite sites, Alice.com, I stumbled upon the True Green Laundry Washing Ball

I know what you’re thinking. Didn’t she try out a Laundry Ball about a year and a half ago and not end up liking it? Yes, I did.

But, this company had a video…a very convincing video (I posted it below).  I took the bait and bought 2 plus the dryer balls.  It’s research after all ;), someone has to test it out and see if it is really as good as they make it sound.

I’m going to use it for 45 days and let you know how it’s going.  Then, I’ll update you in about 6 months.  In the meantime, if you haven’t checked out Alice.com you should. It’s been very convenient for me and I couldn’t resist the free $10 and free shipping–but be stronger than me and don’t add things to your cart you don’t really need :)

  2. jessica Says:

    Yeah it sounds pretty cool but I like my detergent I know that they are clean when they come out of the wash

    Did you finish your experiment with this True Green Laundry Ball??? Is it conveninet for cloth dipares???

    I will be a first time mom in November and am considering using cloth diapers. I saw your recommendations for newborn diapers, but wondered which cleaning system you use. Are you using this Trugreen ball to wash the diapers? How do you rinse the diapers off? Do people still ‘dunk’ them in the toilet or is there a sprayer you attach to the toilet? And where do you store the diapers as they’re drying before you get enough together to do a load in the washer? I feel a bit overwhelmed starting out! Thanks for any help!

    I bought the beegreener balls at the Vancouver show. I was really skeptical and the girls working there were really nice so I bought some and low and behold they really do work! Thanks girls!


  6. Dawn Marie Says:

    They suggest that you don’t use hot/warm cycles.
    You use cold water because it diminishes the magnet affect that brings to the
    cleansing process.

    I am interested in how this turns out. I was on Alice.com, saw this and decided to google it. That is how I ended up here :)


  8. Katiesniche Says:

    So, you use this ball and no detergent? Not even for diapers?


  9. Tina Says:

    Wow!! This is cool….if it works :o) I’m really looking forward to your review on these. They sound too good to be true.


  10. Heidi Says:

    My concern is that they recommend to use ONLY cold water with these washer balls. I wash my diapers in HOT water. And any load that has underwear in it, gets washed in at least warm water.


  11. jen Says:

    I want to try this. I’ll have to check it out.

    To the mama who needs to switch diapers – we use kissaluvs and Flips.
    The size 0 is still fitting at 6 months.


  12. B Says:

    Too bad they don’t ship to Canada!


  13. Melissa Says:

    I saw those a few months ago, and I’ve been reading reviews, but haven’t been convinced to try them yet, so I’ll be very interested to hear your opinion (especially how they work on diapers).


  14. Farah Says:

    i recently had a baby (2.5 months ago) and the cloth diapers i used with my first (now 20 months) is not working well for the second baby. The second baby is long and lean and skinny mini legs. Have any suggestions of diapers that I should try?
