The Magnet Ball prevents calcium and lime build-up in dishwashers and washing machines. It is a magnet covered in hard green santoprene - a rubber-like compound. The strength of the magnet is 210 Gauss.
By placing the magnet ball in the dishwasher, it softens the water and allows you to use half the normal amount of dishwashing detergent. Just place the magnet ball in the bottom tray and use half the amount of dishwasher detergent you'd normally use.
Use in a washing machine reduces laundry detergent required by 50%, depending on initial water hardness. For use in a top-loading washing machine, simply place the magnet ball in with your laundry, and use half the amount of laundry detergent you'd normally use. Using Ultra Power Plus (UPP) laundry detergent, you could be using as little as 1/2 tsp. of detergent for each load. See my post about UPP here: http://www.fastgreenclean.com/2013/04/ultra-power-plus-upp.html
See my other post about Ultra Power Plus, the Norwex laundry detergent, versus other laundry detergents here: http://www.fastgreenclean.com/2013/04/ultra-power-plus-vs-others.html
The Magnet Ball comes with a 5-year warranty and is 5 cm x 5 cm x 6 cm / 2" x 2" x 2.5"
Please note, the Magnet Ball is not recommended for front loading washing machines as not enough water passes through the magnet ball, and given the rapid and vertical spin of these systems, use of the magnet ball in them may result in damage.
It is recommended that you clean the ball by running a microfiber cloth through the center every month or so. This helps prevent metal and mineral build-up from re-depositing back onto clothing.
Why do you use less detergent when using the Magnet Ball?
The Magnet Ball prevents calcium molecules from building up in the dishwasher and washing machines, resulting in softer water. When using the Magnet Ball you should use 50-70% less soap. Do not use in front-loading washing machines.
How do you clean the center of the Magnet Ball?
Pull a cloth through the center of the Magnet Ball to clean the inside and run it under the tap until the water runs clear. This should be done on a regular basis.
Can you use the Magnet Ball in the back of your toilet tank?
Norwex does not endorse placing the Magnet Ball in the tank. Water needs to flow through the magnet ball in order for it to be effective.
Hard-water spots on your crystal and dishes making you nuts? Are you using more detergent, thinking that will get them clean? If you’re using more dish detergent, then hard water also may be causing you to use more laundry detergent than necessary, too.
Use a Magnet Ball in your dishwasher and washing machine. It softens water and prevents calcium and lime buildup. Plus, using the Magnet Ball allows you to use less detergent!
How to Use

Not recommended for front-loading washing machines as not enough water passes through the Magnet Ball. In addition, use in a front-loading washing machine may cause damage to the machine, due to the vertical spin of these types of machines.
