Complete Laundry System Review and 17 winner Giveaway!

I've heard so much about the Complete Laundry System
and have been dying to try it out.
I can't even express how impressed I was with this system! I have not used one ounce of laundry detergent since I received it 2 weeks ago!!!
I LOVE IT!!!
This wonderful company sent me a whole box of goodies including a complete laundry system, lip wonders, an ayate cloth, and goat milk soaps. Every single product was wonderful!
Let's break down the laundry system.


I can't even image how much money it will save not ever having to buy laundry soap again. It may sound gross but it's not, read on.
I feel I gave it the ultimate test and it passed with flying colors. What's the ultimate test you ask.... Camping clothes! You know the ones that smell so strong with campfire smoke you can hardly stand it. I can normally still smell smoke on a several items after washing them with regular detergent. I decided to try it with just the ball no detergent, knowing it would fail!! I mean how can they get clean with no detergent. I pulled them out when they were done and with disbelief not a hint of smoke ON ANYTHING!!!! I let my hubby smell just to make sure my smeller was working! He said the same thing NO SMELL!!! WOW! Made me a believer!
***
So how does it work?? Well their website says that there's a mineral blend in the ball that through physics creates a energy field that makes the water in its best cleaning state. The detergent doesn't do the cleaning the water does. Read more about it here.
**
Don't believe it?? I didn't either until I tried it. If it wasn't clean wouldn't it still smell like smoke? To me smoke is harder to get out of clothes than dirt or grime. So if it cleaned that, to me it's CLEAN!!!
***
One more tid bit of proof... Towels! We only wash our towels a few times a week, not every time we use them. After a couple times they get this musty smell. Guess what that is... Soap build up. After 2 weeks of washing with no detergent that smell has disappeared. Hmmmm that actually proves that it's cleaner NOW than when I used detergent.

Okay on to the dryer balls.
I found HUGE savings in these little balls. I normally set my dryer to the max 70 minutes and then turn it back 20 more minutes for a total of 90 minutes per load. According to their site I knew they were supposed to cut drying time. So I set it to 60 minutes knowing there's NO WAY it could cut that much time. I mean that's A LOT. Well the buzzer buzzed and yep you guessed it to my amazement they were dry!
WOW!! Ever watched how fast the electric meter spins when your dryer is on? I have and it's fast! 20-30 min. less dry time per load is
HUGE for our family of 6!
***
To avoid writing a book check out more details here on their website!

The normal washer balls work for approx. 3 years. They also carry a 1 yr. ball that you can try for less cost.
**
I would recommend this laundry system,
with confidence that you'll love it, to everyone!
At least I know I do!
****

well, Megan, I hope I win the system...because otherwise I'm going to have to buy it :) I started doing cloth diapers with our daughter at home and so I've become familiar with the idea that more detergent doesn't necessarily mean cleaner clothes.

Vanessa said...

I learned two great things:

If you choose to no longer use detergents; you may also choose to use the wash OR rinse cycle when washing your clothes - - saving on machine wear, electricity, time, and water.

If you decide to stop using detergents (harsh chemicals) all together, your clothing will last longer. They will no longer have the detergent i.e.-fillers, peanut shells, ground glass, etc. being forced in and out of the fabric.

Vanessa said...

I think it would work. I have used dryer balls and they do help soften clothes.

I learned that you can use the wonderball in your bath. It softens and helps detangle hair. You can put it on a bucket and use it to mop the floors or clean windows. It helps people with allergies because there is nothing left except clean, less lint too.

I believe this product works.

It is a product for our times when so many people don't have the money to be paying for all these expensive cleansers. Add up the savings.

Ruth said...

I believe that the laundry system will work because when I lived in Japan, I saw women using those balls in their washing machines! (In Japan, people toss out old appliances if small things break on it...my (like me) American, husband found a working washer in the appliance graveyard and pushed it through town, bowing to the Japanese policeman as he pushed it by the station...still one of my favorite memories!) No dryers...everything was hung outside, even in the rainy season (and "panty dorobos [robbers]" would steal your unmentionables occasionally!

(I'd love a set for my laundry room...)

Satsuki Rebel said...

I learned "The Wonder Ball™ is a safe pvc/vinyl ball with a frequency enhanced mineral blend inside for use in your washing machine allowing you to use less (to none at all) laundry detergents." and it also doesn't use any chemicals.

Satsuki Rebel said...

I'm not so sure it would work. My daughter sometimes has food bits left on her clothes (bibs) from eating. Even the detergent doesn't always get it all. I would have to wait and see though. I think it would fine if you didn't have any bits of anything stuck to clothes though.

I learned that the wonder ball has little chemicals, which is great for those with skin allergies!

Betherann said...

You know, I'm not really sure if this would work. I'd like to believe that it would, but one ball to last 3 years? It seems a little too good to be true. However, if it IS true, that would be fabulous -- cutting down on chemicals, toxins, and other yucky things that are harmful for our bodies and the environment.

About me said...

I learned that using the laundry balls instead of detergants will help your clothes last longer.

This seems like such a great product. I love the fact that it will reduce wrinkles (I'm not a fan of ironing) and that it is better for my children's skin and clothes. They are very sensitive to detergents, so not to use detergent would be awesome - for their skin and the wallet.

I learned about the magic prill beads. I would love to try those. I'm not quite a believer. It seems far fetched. If they actually worked so well, why wouldn't the dude be working on fixing the pollution in all areas? But I would have fun doing my own science projects. And if it really does work, then wonderful.

I was reading through the testimonials and have learned that customers using various Mystic Wonders products are no longer using detergents for laundry, shampoo for showers, and are healed of various skin ailments.

Lauren said...

I have to admit that I'm a bit skeptical that these products (laundry ball in particular) would work without ANY soap/detergent for a long time... I know that there's often a lot of soap residue in clothes but after that wears out...?
