The Cora Ball is a new kind of laundry ball. Inspired by the way coral filters the ocean, the Cora Ball collects our microfibers into fuzz we can see, so we can dispose of microfibers in the right way.
How To Use
Just toss the Cora Ball into your washer. It's a simple step that has a big impact wash after wash.
TheCora Ballworks best with your everyday clothes. Please separate your delicates, knits, fine fabrics, anything with tassels, fraying threads or spaghetti straps. There is a chance that these clothes, fabrics, threads or straps work their way into the stalks and wrap, pull or worse. Just keep yourCora Ballon the shelf when you wash these fabrics and delicate garments.
If something, like a thin strap, does wrap in your stalks, carefully unwrap. Unless it was made of lace or extremely delicate fabric or had fraying threads, it will be fine.
Cleaning is easy and similar to cleaning a hairbrush. When you see fuzz/lint balls that are big enough to grab, simply pull them out and throw them in the trash bin (we are working on finding a way to upcycle or recycle them, until then just do the same thing with this lint that you do with your dryer lint).
More About Microfibers
Microfibers are in the same family of pollution as microplastics (particles of plastic that are smaller than 5mm in length). Much of our clothing is made with synthetic fibers and when we wash these clothes these fibers break free and flow out of washers in the wastewater. Filtration systems fail to catch most of these microfibers allowing this pollution to ultimately end up in our water systems. To learn more about microplastics and microfibers Click Here.
