Allow me to introduce you to the Robby Wash Laundry Ball.

"Robby Wash Laundry Ball"What in the world is that, you ask? Well, buckle in, folks…let me tell you all about it. The Robby Wash Laundry Ball is an ingenious product, courtesy of Oransi. It’s really complicated to use. Not. You simply toss it in the washer with your clothes. Period. Done. It is an ultra high efficiency solution to your laundry needs — no need for jugs of detergent or big boxes of powder. Inside the Robby Wash Laundry Ball aro macro-molecule pellets that are gradually released through the wash. These pellets dissolve dried-in stains by generating ions which activate the water molecules.  This increase in the pH enables the activated molecules to penetrate deep into the fabrics and attach themselves to the stains. As the motion of the drum agitates the clothes, the stains come away easily from the fabric and dissolve in the water.

When the level of macro-molecule pellets in the Robby Wash Laundry Ball drop to less than 75% full, it’s time for a refill. (For you lucky people with the super-sized washing machines, the use of two Robby Wash Laundry Balls is recommended.)

Big whoop, right? I mean, it’s just another gadget that does the same thing our laundry products already do…so why should you use the Robby Wash Laundry Ball? Hmmm…oh, yeah, I forgot to mention this: Your Robby Wash Laundry Ball is good for about 12 months. That’s a year. Or, 52 weeks. That’s a year without having to buy laundry detergent and lug it home and drag it to your laundry room (or basement)…pouring it in your washer, dripping and spilling it all over the place. A year. Yes, this excites me so much, I have to keep repeating it! The 10 ounces of pellets inside the Robby Wash Laundry Ball is the equivalent of 1,200+ ounces (or 75+ pounds) of powdered laundry detergent.

When you think about it, the Robby Wash Laundry Ball is not only economical…it’s ecological. I mean, all that laundry detergent isn’t going down the drain! Those aren’t the only benefits, though:

  • highly efficient
  • hypoallergenic
  • baby-safe
  • light fresh scent but not “perfume-y”
  • safe (no phosphates or chlorine)
  • durable

I can’t stress enough how thrilled I am with this laundry ball! Do you realize that (with the pellet refills that come WITH the ball) I won’t be buying laundry detergent for…a few years! Holy guacamole! Keep in mind…the Robby Wash Laundry Ball comes in two colors, fuchsia and blue, and it’s not just for individual preference. The fuchsia laundry ball is intended for washing colors in cooler temperatures (up to approximately 90 F) and the blue laundry ball is for use in hot water.

I have been using the Robby Wash Laundry Ball for about 10 days now and it’s doing an amazing job on all our clothes, including — and this is a biggie — W’s filthy work clothes. Like, working outside in the heat and humidity filthy. We used to spray them to death with pre-treater and then wash them in detergent and laundry additive. Now? In goes the Robby Wash. That’s it. And the clothes come out clean with a light (that’s important on a job site, trust me) fresh scent.

As if that wasn’t enough…Oransi also donates 5% of their revenue to student research. Presently, they’re supporting students in Texas who are working on science fair projects. You know how I love companies that give back!!

    This product sounds totally amazing. How can you lose?
    Easy to use, great money saver, good results. I am looking forward to giving this a try. Thank you so much for your thumbs-up review from actually using it!

  2. Marjorie W says

    My laundry nightmare was when my daughter washed my grandson’s clothes without noticing the crayons in his pockets. She didn’t catch it until they had run through the dryer…

  3. Marjorie W says

    I currently use whatever laundry detergent is on sale, so lately it’s been Purex Naturals.

  4. says

    I learned that they donate 5% of their income to promote student interest in science, engineering and math so they can develop even better cleaning products for future generations.

    I currently use Era laundry detergent and dryer balls, so I’d love to try the Robby Wash Laundry Ball

  6. says

    My laundry nightmare experience is that I didn’t have a washer or dryer for a few weeks after I first got married so I used my moms. Everything was fine until I decided to wash his hunting clothes. Somehow one of the snaps on his jacket got caught in her agitator (this was YEARS ago) and broke it. There was no fixing her machine, she had to buy a new one.

  7. Susan Ladd says

    I learned the Robby Wash Laundry Ball is good for 12 months. Thanks for the great sweep and hope to win :)

  8. Angella says

    Laundry nightmare – I put a pleather jacket into the dryer. It melted. Everything was melted together and the dryer would no longer tumble. :( Ruined all my clothes too!

  9. Suzanne K says

    I’m currently making my own laundry detergent and would love an easy, green, budget friendly alternative like this!

  10. Liza says

    I learned that the name “Oransi” is from a Scandinavian word meaning “orange”. Evokes citrusy-clean!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. katfam says

    Laundry nightmare? A pocketful of crayons that went all the way through to the dryer. Need I say more?

  14. Jayne says

    One of their “Going Green” laundry tips is to NOT buy clothes that require washing in hot water.

  15. Jayne says

    I currently use Purex without the dyes, ink, and perfumes. It’s the concentrated formula.

  16. Morgan says

    I learned that oransi donates 5% of their income to support student interest in math, science, and engineering.

  17. Morgan says

    I use Purex laundry sheets. I’m in college so there are easy to use and I don’t have to carry a ton of stuff down 3 flights of stairs to the laundry room.

  18. Morgan says

    My laundry nightmare isn’t very bad. I must have left something papery in the pockets and it left little paper pieces on all of my clothes.

  19. Angella says

    Oops I missed the big bold mandatory entry for some reason! I learned it can be used in cold and hot cycles, that’s good to know. And I can even use it for my son’s clothing.

  20. LoryAnn Payne says

    I learned 10 ounces of macromolecules are equivalent to more than 1200 ounces of powder detergent, that’s a lot of detergent!

  21. Mir says

    The company is out of Texas. They also make air purifiers and have been doing it for 16 years.

  22. Aisling says

    I learned there’s a place at Orsani called “Which Air Purifier are you?” that will help you determine which air purifier would be the best fit for your needs.

  23. Aisling says

    My “helpful” teenage son did the laundry for me without sorting – he couldn’t see the reason to spend that extra time. Not surprisingly, the red towels dyed all the whites pink. (I wasn’t cruel enough to make him go to school in pink underwear, although I was tempted.)

    I learned that they donate 5% of benefits to foster student interest in science,engineering and math to develop better cleaning products for future generations.

  25. eva says

    Way back when, in college, I was working and the entire tray of all the salad dressing poured on me. I had to wash the clothes 10 times before it started to lessen and I shouldn’t have added my other clothes but being a student on a budget, I didnt’ want to spend 2 dollars for one pair of clothes so all my other clothes smelled too! :’[ It was a nightmare!

  26. Lucy Schwartz says

    They model their production practices after Apple. And they have streamlined manufactoring in China.

  27. Diana Russell says

    I love the Orsani Air Purifier for your fridge – ours desperately needs it! :)

  33. Donald says

    i learned that the Robby Wash ball uses unique technology to clean laundry even better than the powder laundry detergents.

  34. Donald says

    funny story (not so funny tho) wife washed my pants and we ended up losing $100. so now she always checks my pockets!

  35. Nicole says

    A laundry nightmare? My fiance came home yesterday from competing in a Spartan race (a 3 mile obstacle course in mud), with a formally white shirt that he asked me to clean. Not sure how to is going to work out!

  36. Nicole says

    I learned that Oransi greatly encourages their employees to work from home to cut down on the environmental impact that commuting has. That is awesome!

  37. Nicole says

    My favorite laundry detergent is ALL, and I love Snuggle fabric softener. I stock up on it when it’s on sale, and in between I use whatever I can get for cheap. I also use a lot of white vinegar

  38. Jh Cho says

    I learned that “Oransi” is a Scandinavian word meaning “orange”.

  39. Jh Cho says

    I had an AE jacket and I decided to wash it and all the furry thing became a mess. It was just not the same..

  40. Jh Cho says

    I used Tide for the first time, because it was on sale. I like it.

  41. Alpna Darji says

    I currently use costco brand of laundry detergent. The liquid detergent big jug is so big that I have to take it out in a smaller jug and it drips everywhere. So can you imagine what laundry time is like. This robby wash laundry ball would be great help to our family.

    my email address is admo123@yahoo.com

  42. Alpna Darji says

    The laundry nightmare at our home was when my husband mixed in whites with colors plus towels that gave off lint. Boy it was an exciting day full of re-laundry all of the clothes.

    my email address is admo123@yahoo.com

  43. Betty says

    Like many, I’ve turned hubbies undies to pink.
    Thing is I learned if you don’t buy red clothes, it really puts a stop to the problem.

  44. Marcy Strahan says

    I use many brands depnding what’s on sale. Right Now I Have TIDE, Purex, Sun & the Walgreens Brand. Only Because my momgot a new washer & gave me a few bottles. Her Washer is one of those that don’t use regular soap.

    Plus a bag of soap nuts.

  45. renee says

    My laundry nightmare is going on right now: there is something wrong with my dryer and you have to hold down the start button while the door is open and wiggle this little button around on the door until it finally catches after about five minutes and hope it doesn’t break your arm when the drum starts turning! No joke!
