On the Internet, you can find just a huge variety of tips on washing in a washing machine, for example: how to learn how to use washing modes correctly, what kind of detergent and how much is better to use, how to wash without powder, how often you can wash certain things in a washing machine etc. Many tips are quite effective. At the same time, others can not onlyin your clothes, but also your washing machine, which is not cheap. Therefore, before trying something new, you should first understand it well.
Not so long ago, a very interesting piece of advice appeared on the Internet. Its essence lies in the fact that if you throw a few simple foil balls into the m of the washing machine, they will help remove stains from the rinse aid, remove the stubborn stain, remove static electricity, and as a nice bonus, your clothes after washing will become much softer and more pleasant to wear. touch. It certainly sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? In addition, this method is a really simple, and most importantly, inexpensive solution, which in turn will improve the quality of washing for mere pennies. Whether this is e or another myth from those who like to experiment, we will try to figure it out today. Personally, to be honest, I don’t really believe this, it seems to me that this is another duck that surfs the Internet. So let’s get started.
Why you need a foil ball
Using foil balls during washing is quite simple, and most importantly, the cost of them is minimal. Theoretically, foil balls will help to better clean things during washing and cope with some of its problems. All you need to do is roll up a few thick balls of aluminum foil, which you can buy at almost any store, and put them in the washing machine m with your clothes. At the same time, it is not necessary to use new balls every time, having rolled them up once they can be used for six months or as soon as they shrink and begin to lose density.
One of the main purposes of the balls is to neutralize static electricity, which is formed on clothes and underwear as a result ofbbing things. A special m rim should remove static electricity in the washing machine, but it is not always able to cope with this task. That’s why we need these balls. As a result of their use, your things will not stick together and will not lose their original appearance. Therefore, you can wear such things for a long time.
In addition, during the washing process, the balls give an additional mechanical effect on things, and also contribute to better mixing of the washing powder, which is important. As a result, your things are not only washed better, but also the stains that sometimes detergent leaves after rinsing are completely absent. Another of the main theoretical advantages of this washing method is saving your family budget. Because using balls, you will soon notice that with each new wash you will need less and less laundry detergent and fabric softener.
What do we get in practice
In theory, this all sounds just great, but in practice, the effect of such balls is completely different. If we talk about static electricity, then this method will be more relevant not when washing, but when drying things in a washing machine. During drying, these balls will really help to reduce the amount of static electricity on your clothes. Since the foil is made of aluminum, and as you know, aluminum has a wonderful ability to remove static electricity. If you find that during the drying process the balls do not completely eliminate all static electricity, then it is recommended to combine them with a preliminary use of fabric softener, or rinse the clothes with vinegar, which softens the fabric and reduces this problem. It is worth remembering that it is necessary to use only white vinegar, which is added precisely to the last rinse cycle. Well, the easiest way to get rid of static accumulation is to remove the still wet laundry from the washing machine and hang it in the open air so that it can dry quietly.
It is worth adding that foil balls are completely safe for human health because they do not contain chemicals, so they cannot cause any harm. Such balls will also not be able to damage the m of the washing machine. The only problem you’re likely ton into is that the foil may start to mble and particles will remain on your underwear.
It is not at all necessary to use foil balls for washing; special plastic orbber balls, which you can buy both in specialized stores and on the Internet, are better suited for this. Such balls are sold in several pieces at once, since one ball is unlikely to cope with the task. It is worth noting that it is effective to use tourmaline laundry balls. They really make washing easier and do not contain synthetic detergents. In addition, tourmaline balls are one of the popular detergents at the moment, and most importantly, they are designed to be washed without powder. Therefore, you can save a lot of money, because you do not have to constantly buy washing powder. One set of tourmaline balls will last approximately 2-3 years, and this is with daily washing. The only thing is that if the pollution is strong enough, you still have to use the powder.
There is another fairly new way – the use of magnetic balls, which will help not only to wash things with high quality, but, as the manufacturer assures, they will even help get rid of scale in the washing machine without any chemicals. During the washing process, the balls hitting the fabric effectively “knock out” the dirt from it. The balls really work, of course, not 100%, but it is quite possible to use them periodically when washing pillows and other things. However, it should be understood that such balls can be used for almost any mode of the washing machine, including for washing in cold water. But at high temperatures (80–90 degrees), such balls should definitely not be placed in the m.
Summing up, I would like to say that it is possible to use foil balls, and this is not another myth from those who like to experiment. They really contribute to better mixing of the washing powder, and also give an additional mechanical effect on the items being washed. Of course, there are also negative sides, for example, during use, foil balls may begin to mble and foil particles will remain on your things. After washing, you will have to make an effort to clean things from the foil or wash again. In addition, no matter how perfectly you roll these balls, sharp edges will still remain, and since mechanical processing takes place in the washing machine, the addition of such balls can most likely lead to damage to items made of delicate fabrics, for example, to the appearance holes, hooks, puffs, etc. Therefore, in my opinion, it is better to use special plastic andbber balls that are designed for effective washing. Currently, there is a large selection of such balls for every “taste” and wallet. Moreover, buying special balls is quite simple. And to be honest, they are not so expensive to save on this, and they are enough for more than one year.
That’s all. Thank you all for your attention. Friends, do not forget to share in the comments what interesting and, most importantly, effective washing methods you know.
