Eco Balls -- the laundry detergent of the future?

Eco Balls apparently wash your clothes. There's a nutzy commercial that unfortunately isn't available to embed here -- check it out here:

Here's a screenshot of the product.

Is it just me, or do these look exactly like Dippin' Dots, Ice Cream of the Future™?

Stats: $19.95 plus S&H
Residue-free! (what does this even mean?)

Pros: Looks like Ice Cream of the Future™.

Cons: I found these in the frequently asked questions section of the Eco Balls Web site. These are questions you would frequently ask if you owned Eco Balls.
Q. Why aren’t my Ecoballs™ working?

Q. My Ecoballs™ have started to smell strange and so are my clothes and washing machine.

Q. Can I use the grey water to water my garden?*
* No where else on the site or the commercial does anyone or anything mention "grey water."

Verdict: Buy! Even the mere possibility of being able to use the grey water to water my garden makes this a must-have.

  1. Grey water is a common term for water that is "used" but not "grody" (i.e. not sewage). FYI.
