This is the price we paid for the item. Sometimes two balls come in a pack, or in the case of SoapNuts, they can come in 100g-1kg packs.

These products generally fall into a few categories:
a) Plastic balls with seemingly no reasonable exit point for detergent or detergent-free agent.
b) Plastic balls filled with minerals. These tend to be in the majority and claim a need to be replaced over time.
c) Soap nuts, which are actually a type of berry that claims to release saponin and acts as a natural detergent.
We tested most products in front loaders, as they all claim to work in front loaders. We re-tested soap nuts in top loaders because the distributor came back to us claiming that they perform best in top loaders.
