Anti-limescale washing balls for washing machines
Washing balls reduce the consumption of water, energy, detergent and fabric softener. Each ball is equipped with a magnetic steel core to prevent crystallization and the deposit of limescale in the washing machine. Box containing 6 washing balls.
Mechanically loosen dirt from the fibres
Washing balls are specially designed to beat and stir the laundry in the machine, increasing the efficiency of the washing and drying process. They knead the laundry thoroughly, just like in our grandmother's time. The advantages are economic and ecological.
Integrated magnets produce constantly changing magnetic fields during the rotation of the balls. These fields change the structure of the limescale crystals dissolved in the water, which reduces the deposits in your machine and in the textiles.
Simply place the wash balls in the machine with your laundry. They mechanically loosen the dirt from the fibres, thus improving the washing performance. The laundry becomes softer and detergent residues are rinsed off better (especially important for people with allergies!). The wash balls can also be used in the dryer. As the laundry is much lighter, the drying time is reduced.
Benefits of using wash balls in your washing machine
+ Laundry becomes softer and detergent residues are better rinsed away
+ Mechanically loosens dirt from the fibres, thus improving washing performance
+ Limits the formation of limescale and thus extends the life of the washing machine
+ Limits the amount of detergent (detergent, fabric softener) used in each wash (agitation has a direct mechanical effect on stains and on the softness of the laundry)
+ Saves water and electricity: same efficiency for shorter cycles.
+ Improves the ironing of your clothes
How does a laundry ball work ?
The principle of a wash ball is very simple. The wash balls and wash racks move through the laundry as the machine's drum rotates
1 - The material of which they are made (a very resistant elastomer) has been chosen for its ideal density in the wash water: too light and they would remain on the surface, too heavy and they would sink and remain permanently under the laundry.
2 - They exert a totally natural mechanical action by stirring, de-creasing, smoothing and stirring the laundry without wearing it out, during washing, rinsing and drying.
3 - This "kneading" of the linen is similar to that of the washerwomen who twisted, tapped and wrung the linen in the washhouse...
How do I use the wash balls ?
Put the wash balls with your laundry in the drum of your machine.
Reduce the amount of detergent by up to 50% and do not use fabric softener. You can also reduce the temperature for boiling laundry from 95° to 60°. Start your machine.
Washing balls are resistant to detergent and water temperature. They have a very long life and can be left in the machine or dryer between machines. It is recommended to change the wash balls every 5 years.
Washing and drying ball dosage :
Up to 3 kg of laundry : 6 balls
Up to 5 kg of laundry : 12 balls
Wool : 4 balls
The Penn'Ty Bio tip
Washing balls are particularly suitable for everyday, slightly thick clothes as they do not damage them. Be careful, however: they are not recommended for washing fine lingerie, lace, tights and stockings.

Precautions for use
Do not swallow. Keep out of reach of children. Whenever you take your laundry out of the machine, be very careful that no balls slip by or behind the drum. If this happens, do not restart your machine without first seeking advice from an installer. The anti-limescale system is magnetic! Do not store it near data media such as floppy disks or near video recorders, pacemakers, credit cards, TV sets or computers !
