Best Laundry Detergent for an Economical Wash

The Best Laundry Detergent for a Lower Cost Laundry Day

Question: Which is the best laundry detergent for the environment and a green lifestyle? And which is the best for your pocket?

Answer: A laundry ball! (Except that it isn't really a detergent at all... but it does the same job.)

Best Laundry Detergent and Other Money-Saving Laundry Tips:

Here are some easy ways to slash your laundry bills, and be a bit greener.

This page looks at some of the best eco laundry options for an inexpensive and effective home laundry day, starting with wash balls or laundry balls.

Washballs, laundry balls, eco-balls?

Could this be the best laundry detergent?

Washballs, or laundry balls (also sometimes called eco-balls) are small plastic containers that you put in the drum of the washing machine. They wash your clothes by ionising the water.

Inside they are filled with small clay balls - which do gradually wear away and need replacing but...the good news is that they last for months before this happens, so you just use the same ball over and over again.

You save on detergent because the laundry ball simply replaces it. For most washes you can just use a washball, keeping your detergent for really stubborn stuff.

Less fabric softener needed

You don't really need so much fabric softener either because the resulting wash is far less harsh. The clothes are not heavily scented with artificial fragrances and there are no harmful effects upon skin as they contain no complex chemicals.

Clothes last longer, too and the colours don't fade so much.

Best of all, there's no need to worry about the environmental impact of your need for clean clothes. For my money, that makes washballs the best laundry detergent!

Colourful pegs - perhaps not so eco-friendly! Wooden ones generally last longer and are bio-degradable - though many may be imported from the other side of the world!

Do you still need detergent?

Best Laundry Detergent and Other Money-Saving Laundry Tips:

Yes, it may be necessary for items which are heavily soiled, especially with grease. I reckon that my spending on detergent is about 1/10th of what it was before I started using laundryballs.

Why is it good to cut down on detergent?

There are many environmental costs to our detergent use.

Just one recent finding is that modern detergent formulations often include nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs). Many water treatment plants aren’t equipped to remove them and there is more than a whiff of suspicion that they are causing feminine characteristics in fish!

Many detergents contain fragrances which are environmentally damaging.

Most detergents contain phosphates which cause algae to reproduce artificially fast in waterways. These "algal blooms" suffocate other living organisms. Phosphate-free detergents are not problem-free either, as other chemicals such as surfactants have to be increased to compensate...
