As for protection against scale, magnetic balls are also famous for this property. But you can use another tool - "Antinakipin which you can find out in detail on the page "How to use antiknakipin for washing machines."
How to use balls

Depending on the type of laundry, the number of balls that can be thrown into the drum together with the clothes varies. Much depends on the size and configuration of the balls.
Recommendations for washing with magnetic balls are as follows:

- Wearing off the wool, do not load more than 4 balls into the machine.
Attention! Using the balls, reduce the norm of the detergent or liquid medium by half.
Balls are not afraid of high temperature and the speed of rotation of the drum, so set a comfortable cycle and boldly erase. But temperatures above 80 degrees should be avoided.

To check if the ball is effective, as the manufacturers say, study the feedback from experienced users. We picked up the most well-reasoned comments.
For more than three years I've been using the "White Cat" balls, but I still do not understand what their charm is. These are small balls, up to 4 cm in width, weigh about 35 grams. I use it for a long time, and only now I understand that the money was wasted, especially since the scum was, is and will be, because the master recently changed TEN and showed me the whole nightmare. And the quality of washing does not differ in any way, what with the balls, what without them. From the scum began to pour the lemonade, and the quality of rinsing in my case depends only on whether I choose the "additional rinse" mode or not.
I noticed the novelty in the homemade right away. A little later, the white cat was very recommended to me by the saleswoman. Has bought or purchased. Not really noticed the difference, well, except that the conditioner was used less. I can not say about the scum, because the machine has never been dismantled. Throw balls into the toilet bowl, then the raid for a week so nowhere and not gone. The big disadvantage is noise when used. Still faced with the fact that the balls are stuck in their clothes, constantly have to get out of sleeves, pockets and socks. I think you can buy ordinary balls, without magnets - cheaper and the effect is the same.
Eko Life accidentally saw the balls on TV. Mom caught fire, so I decided to buy them. On the advice on the label, did not use a water softener, reduced the amount of gel for washing and rinse. I can say that with all this, the laundry is soft and there are no stains. But then I checked - at the same concentration of washing means WITHOUT BALL things are the same, moreover, checked repeatedly. I use the ball only because I paid a lot for it, and once I spent the money, it's a pity to throw it away.
We can conclude that with the high cost of the device and the promises of manufacturers, such an accessory can become both a good helper and an unnecessary waste. The choice is yours.
