Mystic Wonders Wonder Ball Review and Giveaway

Back in August I was set a Complete Laundry System from Mystic Wonders Inc. It comes with a Wonder Ball for the washing machine and two Wonder Dryer Balls for the dryer.

I wanted to use the Complete Laundry System for awhile before posting it. First off let me say I was skeptical that this would be all I needed to do my laundry, no detergent, no dryer sheets no anything.

Right off I could tell I liked the dryer balls. The little nubs on them keep the clothes separated and redistribute the heat cutting down on drying time. I could tell a difference in my drying time from the very first load.

The washing ball took me a little longer to like. First off it says you don’t need ANY detergent with it, which kind of scared me. I do use detergent with mine but only use about 1/5 what I normally would. This saves me a ton of money right there. After about 6 weeks using it, once the old detergents were out of the clothing, I could tell a huge difference in the softness of the clothing.

The dryer balls are engineered to last forever where the washer ball needs to be replaced/recharged every 3 years or 2000 washes. Can you imagine how much money this will save you?

Mystic Wonders has offered to give one lucky reader their own Complete Laundry System.

To enter: Leave a comment with how many loads of laundry you do a month.

For bonus entries:either share this giveaway on your blog, facebook or twitter. Then come back and leave a link to where you shared it.

Entries will be taken until Friday, November 20th at noon CST. At that time I will post the winner and you have 48 hours to get back to me with your information.

I have 5 babies at home, I do at least 1 load per day, plus sheets and towel loads a few times per month, so I would say on average.... 40 loads per month.

Loads of laundry? I am the Laundry Queen. In my house alone I do 48 loads a month plus my neighbors whose washer/dryer are on the blink. We do a total of about 75-80 loads a month. Whew! She buys the detergent but I like the concept of these balls so much better!

I do about 5 loads a day! WHEW!! These little doohickeys sure are neat - I wouldn't mind giving them a whirl.

I seriously do about 30-40 loads a month! And yes, that is about 1 load per day. With a 3 year old, infant, and a soldier at home...it's hard to keep anything clean!

One load per day is thirty loads. Plus another 2 every weekend makes 38. I'll add in another one because I'm sure my big, old shedding dog's bed gets it's own load once a month. Ok, 39 loads. That's my final answer. ;-)

Nicole said...

kris10dale said...

I probably do about 30-35 a month. Would love to win this. I had a different brand of dryer balls, and one got brittle and broke! They really do help seperate the clothes - the small loads tend to ball up in my dryer for some reason. Never heard of the ball for the washer, but would definitely try it out! :)

DLHook@aol.com said...

I do about 30 loads a month for a family of 4. Every time I think I can get away without doing a load one day, I just end up doing 2 loads the next day instead! I would LOVE to win one of these! Thanks so much! Diane :)

ugh- TOO many!! I try to do a load a day to stay caught up, but that doesn't always happen-- I'd say I average 6 or 7 a week, so 24- 28 a month.

Kathryn said...

Wow, how many loads do I do a month. I have to take my best estimation here as I have never tried to count but I am intrigued now. I usually have one big laundry day where I try to knock out most of it which is probably 5 loads that day and then a few extra a week. So maybe 7-8 a week which would make me guess 30-40 loads a month! Thanks for the giveaway.

Hi I'm Mary. With two teenage boys and myself and my husband, I do about 45 loads a month. I'm allergic to pet dander, but my kids wanted pets, so I wash a little extra to get out the cat dander. I've tried a cheap version of the dryer balls. Did you know you can use 2 tennis balls? They do help the laundry dry quicker. I make my own detergent, but I'd sure like to try the washer ball. I'm sure I'd have to make alot less detergent. mchanaust@yahoo.com Why my bosses name comes up I'm not sure why.

Sheila Mac said...

1 load every week for DH uniform
1 load a week for baby's clothes
1 load a week for Darks
1 load a week for lights
2x a month we do 3 loads for blankets, covers, sheets, and towels
1 load a month for the dogs blankets
= at least 22 loads. sometimes more in the summer when we camp. and more in the winter because of the layers.

I do about 2 loads a day so I'd say minimum of 60 each month. I currently make my own laundry soap and hang out most loads, but I think this would save me even more!

I am living with my sister until I can finish repairs to my house caused by Hurricane Ike, we do laudry for six adults, we average about 4 to 6 loads a day. That is around 120 to 180 loads a month. I wash a lot of bedding for my Mom who is 89 and bed bound. This would come in handy and save me a lot of money.

I just left a comment that I average 120 to 180 loads a day. I forgot to leave my email

I love the concept. I am however, skeptical about no detergent in the wash...would have to try for myself.
I probably do around 16-20 loads a month. This number increases when my husband is home from job locations (usually gone 2 weeks at a time,) This number increases by 10. Thanks for the opportunity!

I do 20 minimum each month (whites, two colored loads and my clothes) then add in several odd ones sometimes so about 25 per month total.

NOw that I'm an empty nester, I can get by with 2-3 loads a week. When all 6 kids were home I was doing 2-3 a day!!!! This might make a great gift for the college kids on a tight budget...I've got two who live together...might tuck this in their stocking???
