In 2009 the Spanish consumer organization OCU made a study of “ecobolas” (a type of laundry ball marketed in Spain). It compared the efficacy of the laundry ball, normal detergent, and no detergent at all. It concluded that laundry balls were no better than using just water, and it recommended that consumers simply use a minimum amount of detergent.

For people who are concerned about their drinking water, this device employs a combination of “oxygenating activity, pi minerals, and magnetic field .. designed to re-create the conditions in the stream where pi water (“the water of life” } was discovered more than 30 years ago.”
I haven’t tried these but I am extremely chemically sensitive. I cannot be around anyone who uses laundry detergent or dryer sheets. They make me very sick. People are killing themselves with all these toxic products. I use vinegar to clean and organic detergent.

“Magnetic water and fuel treatment: myth, magic, or mainstream science?” This article, by Mike Powell, a chemical engineer, appeared in the Skeptical Enquirer 22(1) 27-31 1998. The author provides a few references, practically all to non-refereed journals and conference proceedings of dubious quality. Powell observes that “the utter lack of published data is revealing. According to the vendors, magnetic fuel treatment has been around for fifty years. If it actually worked as claimed, it seems likely that it would by now be commonplace. It is not.”
I saw the ad for the magnets the other day, and was tempted to buy them. The comments on the ad were glowing in praise. But the show-me skeptickism prevailed. Yes, it was shown to be too-good-to-be-true. Thanks for your testing methods!
The belief that magnetic fields can reduce the surface tension of water has become almost an urban legend that is widely promoted by various magnet merchants, despite the very small amount of evidence that has been amassed during the 100 or so years that the effects of magnetic fields on matter have been studied. Owing to the intense scientific interest in the properties and structure of water, one would expect that any convincing evidence that the surface tension of water can be influenced by magnetic treatment would make its way to one of the mainline chemistry journals. So far, this has not happened; what few reports there are tend to be in rather obscure publications which deal mainly with other fields and are probably not subject to review by water chemistry experts. Two recent articles illustrate this problem:
I bought some for myself & some as a Christmas present. At first I was happy. Now after 5-6 uses I can see my whites are grubby & the stains are not removed. I agree it’s a scam. How do I return them?
People are stupid, so they don’t realize that washing clothes in plain water is, by itself, pretty good at getting them clean. People are stupid, so they don’t realize that the “enzymatic stain removers” that the Magnetic Laundry System people tell you to use on stains are, actually, detergents, which means that when you spray those on stains in your laundry, you’re putting detergent in your laundry, not washing it with nothing but magnets. People are stupid, so they don’t understand that “enzymatic stain removers” plus water would clean their clothes just as well as “enzymatic stain removers” plus water plus magnets.
Our laundry detergent releases banned cancer-causing toxic chemicals which affect the health of your family members. Nowadays, 99% of laundry detergents may cause cancer as they may have cancer-causing chemicals which are hazardous and highly toxic to our health.
It’s a must have item for every home, but especially those with chemical sensitivities. So glad I finally had enough saved in my Amazon account to purchase it, and try it out. 🙂 I can’t recommend it highly enough, truly.

I read about magnets for laundry a few days ago. I was intrigued. My daughter has a medical device.. she no longer need.. that has very powerful magnets. I used 2 of these. My washing water was filthy! These were “clean” dirty clothes. Also, there is less lint in the dryer. I’m hoping after a few washes, the water isn’t that dirty. I believe that is detergent residue from the clothes. Not sure how these with, but they do. Hth
Herbert, I don’t think that there is one product that will work on everything. I’m not a chef, just a klutzy mom with two messy girls. Even with my suggestions below, a second, or even third washing may be required for particularly stubborn or set in (from previous washing and drying) stains. Check to see if the stain is out before drying. Putting stained items in the dryer can set the stain, making it harder to get out. If it needs rewashed to get a stain out, do not let it dry before washing again.
Magnets: I love them. I’ve studied for 30 years. the late Jessie Partridge got me started. so many aholes are naysayers. If you want more ask. I saw magnet laundry balls a long time ago. I’m searching for some. I’m a big guy. tree trimming, a big limb hit my shinbone there was a knot as big as a yam. I limped in the house put a xtra strond magnet on it nagitive side down got a big cold pack put that under magnet. it took pain pills lay down with the TV. 3 hours later help arrived (wife) she took everything off no sign of a bruise a little scraped skin, still hurt! I didn’t think it would work that good. Partridge started using them in the 30’s He knew so much. The naysayers had a lot of bad thing to say about him.
