"Ecoballs" for the washing machine--do they work?

I've heard of "ecoballs" in the UK and France for many years. They've just arrived in Spain. Apparently you toss 2 of them in your wash instead of laundry soap and they clean your clothes. Is there anything in this? Has anyone tried them, do they work? Or is it a scam? They cost 30 Euros for the pair which is why I want a user's opinion before I order some.

whoa i want to hear about this too. what if the clothes are stinky?

Exactly what I was thinking!  Time to google!

You all have stinky clothes? WHAT is wrong with you?!  :P
I dunno anything about these balls. You just use the same two over and over?

I found THIS blog article about them, and he seems to make sense.

Word.

I like "soap nuts" as an alternative to laundry liquid, and they don't come packaged as UFOs  :o

Well I checked that link and the only positive post was someone who was so rah-rah about them, I got the distinct impression that they were shilling for the product. Here they are available via Internet only or TV ad, though the appliance store man said he could order them for me. I've decided they're too expensive to risk it. I only count on 100 Euro a week for expenses and food, so 1/3 of that for a product that might or might not work...no.

And if they don't take the sweat smell out your clothes, that wouldn't work either.

Not worth it, on our budget.

Darn...I was hoping they were viable.  Eh...well...

I've heard positive things about soap nuts... don't know about these things.

I've been curious about the static ball things from the dryer. I use all natural non toxic biodegradable dryer sheets, but I still have staticky clothes (dry air. blah.)
