Robby Wash Ball review

Have I mentioned lately how much I detest cleaning?  And let me say doing laundry is no exception to this.  The loading, the switching, the toteing and the folding, its all too much.  If I could I'd probably just buy new clothes each week.  But since THAT ain't happening, I wash...loads upon loads.  Since its extra painful to do something I hate AND spend money doing it, I attempt to find the lowest possible deal on laundry detergent.  Sometimes this is NOT really cost effective.  And since returning to work several years ago (after a very short stint at home when my house WAS sparkly clean and laundry always done) I realized that I really can NOT use powder detergent.  You see in my effort to minimize my torture, I pack my loads as fully as humanly possible and powder detergent and an overfull washer do NOT work well together.  So I've been using liquid detergent, which was new to me and it's alright.  Except I am...less than coordinated sometimes and regularly spill it on myself.
Enter The Robby Wash Ball!  It's my new BFF.  Ok  not really,  cuz I am still not uber thrilled to do laundry but this helps.  It really does.  Maybe its because its pink and cute.  Or maybe because as Mary Poppins said, in every task that must be done, there is an element of fun.  And now, finding my Robby Wash ball after each load is like my own little game of hide and seek.  

And it works really well.  So far the only thing I've had not come out 100% clean were the grass stained baseball pants I forgot to pre-treat at all.  But they still came out surprisingly well all things considered.  I am thrilled with the Robby Wash ball!

How it works:  The Robby Wash ball uses a unique and patented worldwide technology to clean your laundry even better than the powder laundry detergents it was independently tested against.  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.  Of all the systems on the market, Robby Wash's effectiveness is tested, proven and guaranteed.
