My Little One has suffered from eczema for as long as I can remember. Eczema has proven to be quite the challenge with trying to find out what products trigger her eczema and which products help her eczema. Sometimes a product seems to work for awhile and then all the sudden it triggers her eczema so on to the next product we go.
One area of concern for us has always been laundry. We have had a need to get the chemicals out of our laundry. If there is anything in the clothes, my Little One reacts. A towel that gets wet as she dries herself after a shower triggers her eczema if there are any residual chemicals from products in them.
My Little One’s clothes against her skin as she perspires brings on an eczema reaction as well. Laundry has been an extreme challenge….well until now….
AN ECZEMA SAFE LAUNDRY DETERGENT ALTERNATIVE
The SmartKlean Laundry Ball is eco-friendly, free of harsh chemicals and fragrance, gentle on the skin, and detergent free. And it won’t leave behind residue on your clothing like detergents do. It’s an eczema safe laundry detergent alternative, but its also a great option for those with psoriasis, sensitive skin and many other skin conditions. It’s natural and non-toxic, so a gentle choice for delicate baby skin as well.
Try it with the SmartKlean Non-Toxic Stain Remover for best results.
Gentle and great for babies and those with eczema, other skin disorders, and sensitive skin.
No detergent or soap residue (Did you know: 2% of a garment’s weight comes from laundry detergent residue. Ick!)
Removes harsh chlorine from your washing water.
Doesn’t contain SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) or SLES (sodium laureth sulfate/sodium lauryl ether sulphate), both chemicals and studies have proved how harsh they are on our skin.
No added fragrance or brightening agents, which are also harsh on skin.
Both the ceramics and magnets contained inside of the laundry ball are natural and 100% biodegradable.
The exterior shell is a number 7 plastic, fully recyclable.
One ball lasts through 365 washes! It costs approximately $.13 per load.

No need to pre-measure detergent, you can skip the fabric softener and forget the extra rinse. Simply toss the SmartKlean Laundry Ball into the wash and set your water temperature to cold or warm – no need for hot water as the ball cleans best without it. Safe for use with a front load or top load washing machine.
If you’ve never used a natural laundry product before, please keep in mind:
You will want to remove all traces of detergent residue from your washing machine. Follow the easy instructions with the ball and run a vinegar wash before using the SmartKlean Laundry Ball.
The chemicals in laundry detergents keep whites bright, but leave horrible chemicals next to your skin. Try using lemons or hydrogen peroxide (1 cup added to the soap dispenser) to whiten and brighten your laundry as needed.
If you have hard water, you may need to boost the cleaning power of the SmartKlean Laundry Ball with baking soda (1 cup per full load).
If you’re looking for a bit of natural fragrance, add a few drops of the essential oil of your choice to a rag and toss into the wash and/or the dryer. Lemon and lavender essential oils would be a great choice.
The SmartKlean Laundry Ball is so simply to use and it leaves our laundry feeling so soft and fluffy.
we have been using the SmartKlean Laundry Ball for about a month and we have loved the clean, fresh feeling of our clothes. Most importantly, I have also noticed a wonderful thing, my Little One seems to not have any reactions to her clothes.
The biggest tip I have is to ensure that your washer is rinsed out well and all the past residue from other products have been removed. Just cycle your laundry machine through a number of times to get the drum cleaned out.
You have to remember to recharge the SmartKlean Laundry Ball by setting it in the sun. Pretty easy to do for sure.
