How they work

These innovative sponge balls are designed to fit through hoses when compressed and expand upon contact with water or cleaning agents, ensuring a thorough and effective cleaning process. Made from a soft and absorbent material like polyurethane foam, these sponge balls effortlessly absorb water and soap to help loosen and remove dirt and grime. With their gentle scrubbing action, they effectively eliminate stubborn build-ups without causing any damage to your valuable hoses or pipes. The rubber hose sponge cleaning balls are not only versatile but also cost-effective, making them an essential tool to enhance the performance and durability of your hoses and machines.
