IMPORTANT UPDATE: We’ve been using these and they’ve worked great, BUT the balls got stuck between the basket and the washer. The house filled with smoke and it almost burnt down. So….use at your own risk.
1000 loads of laundry? Save hundreds? Natural? Had to test them. And after using them for awhile, all I have to say is, “Where have these been?!” If you are a faithful reader you know that I’ve been using Homemade Laundry Detergent. And while it works, I’m moving onward and upward right here:
What is Crystal Wash?
Crystal Wash Balls are these two balls that you throw inside your laundry. They supposedly can do up to 1000 loads of laundry. We haven’t tested the 1000 load limit yet, but the rest we have.

If you regularly use cheap detergent:
Average Total Savings: $205
- Saves Money
- Does a great job on everyday wash
- No clutter in your laundry room
If you have a lot of money, energy, time, like cleaning messes and like clutter in your laundry room then don’t get these. But for everyone else, this gets a high recommendation!
