How does Washball Work?
One of the great things about WashBall is that you don't have to put anything in it, so it doesn't use any consumables. Instead, the technology and design of WashBall allows the device to alter the composition of the water itself, which reduces limescale issues. If you use WashBall in your new machine or old machine, you'll notice that it can help your washing machine and detergent remove dirt and odours more effectively as well.
WashBall contains a similar technology design to the Homescale Protect. WashBall includes an electrode system of conductive materials and together they form a galvanic system that removes the hardness of the water, helping to protect your washing machine from limescale. When the WashBall is used, the water in the machine is modified and as your cycle completes and the water is drained from the system, the calcium flows out of the machine as a non-harmful form, instead of settling in the machine itself as it would without any form of protection.
A benefit of using WashBall is that it is completely maintenance-free - and this means less need for any household appliance repair or service down the road. You just have to remember to use it when you do a wash. For those homes in hard water areas then WashBall can help increase the life expectancy of your washing machine. Ultimately, old washing machines tend to break down after a while and a major cause is due to limescale, which in turn forces you to purchase a new washer dryer. So, if you're looking to increase the life of your washing machine, avoid the pain of looking for spare parts, or having the appliance repaired every couple of years, let alone a brand new washer then WashBall can help. Most people do not want the expense of buying a new washing machine, and while eventually all washing machines end up needing to be replaced, but by adopting a simple device such as WashBall you can increase the appliance's life expectancy and delay the inevitable for a long time.
Not only is WashBall great at reducing limescale in your washing machine but as a side benefit when you use WashBall, because the structure of the minerals change due to the washing process, it will also leave your clothes cleaner and softer. It works on all top brand name washers including AEG, Bosch, Hotpoint, Hoover, Indesit, Maytag, Miele, Samsung, Whirlpool, Zanussi and more.
WashBall is extremely long-lasting, in fact, the life of WashBall is set to a maximum of 10,000 cycles, which is a lot of washes and longer than some brands claim for their machine! With this in mind, it stands to reason that WashBall is resistant to both the impact and abrasion associated with high spin cycles., so you do not have to worry what spin speed or heat level the machine is on. Even though WashBall is tough, it won't hurt your clothes. The shape of WashBall means that it can roll and catch as much water as possible within the machine.
How to use the WashBall
WashBall is extremely simple to use. All you have to do to get all the benefits of WashBall is to put it in your machine with your laundry. Nothing more than that. You can put WashBall into any washing machine, including both top-loading washers and modern front-loading machines plus you can also use it with any type of wash cycle or temperature.
Yet another benefit of WashBall is that when you use it, you do not have to use as much laundry detergent. In fact, you can reduce your laundry detergent use per wash by 1/3 less than you would normally use. In addition to this you can skip the fabric softener too, since WashBall has this covered as well. With WashBall you save money on potential repairs caused by limescale and reduce the expense of your detergent and fabric softener. Great for saving you money and also good for the environment.
