I dropped the ball...

Friday, January 29, 2010

So, two months ago...GAH! TWO MONTHS! Where DOES the time go...well, ok...so there were some major holidays and a pretty special birthday among other things going on...

But I admit it...I dropped the ball, about the balls...
It's not that I haven't been thinking about the balls...I think about them constantly, but seeing as how my husband handles about 50 95% of the balls around here...They do sometimes slip my mind...
To be fair - we wanted to give it a good 4-6, ok, so it's 8 weeks or more of using OUR balls before we came right out and said what we think about them...

The Mystic Wonders Complete Laundry System...
And here's the scoop...Our laundry is still getting JUST AS CLEAN as it was BEFORE we, err, my hubs, who does literally about 95% of the laundry around here, started using the balls and using little or no detergent...(sometimes, if our laundry is really really dirty like milk that's been cleaned up with a kitchen rag and then left to ferment on the counter, or if we use our shirt sleeves to wipe pizza off of our faces ~ then we'll add a leeeeeeeeeeettttllleee tiny bit of detergent....)
But not even close to what we have used before...In the past two months - I think it's safe to say we've used maybe 2 cups total of detergent...
So far, so good!

So do I think the Mystic Wonders Complete Laundry System is worth the $49.95 price tag? Yes...I'd pay it.
By the time you add up the price of detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets...even if you are a coupon fiend like myself...
I think it doesn't take terribly long for these magical mystical balls to pay for themselves...
I will say though ~ I miss the smell of freshly done laundry, Downy in particular, so...every once in awhile, I like to put in a capful of downy in with the wash...and because we haven't been using detergent or fabric softener...
The smell is very profound - you ever notice how if you sort of get immune to the smell of something if it's around all the time?
Using fabric softener every dozen or so loads seems to really really bring out that fresh laundry smell...
I love it...

That being said...I really really need to share what Fern from Mystic Wonders shared with me...Do I really want to purchase a new bottle of fabric softener after reading this? Go ahead - read it for yourself and make your own decision...definately opens a persons eyes...

So...there's the scoop on the balls - I say yes...worth the price tag as our clothes are coming out just as clean (perhaps cleaner seeing as how we aren't clogging the fibers with detergent/fabric softener/dryer sheets with every load...
Not to mention the impact on the environment that a system like this has...
Less soap to get washed into the sewer system...less plastic bottles to go into the landfills recycling centers...you DO all recycle right?

So...there you have it - our take on the Magical Mystical Mystic Wonders Complete Laundry System...order yours today! (And while you're at it - get yourself some of this killer lip balm! Seriously - I LOOOVE this stuff!
