The first real innovation in the laundry industry in 60 years

fanute is the exclusive distributor of Hydrofinity near-waterless commercial laundry systems in South Africa and Africa.

Challenging traditional ideas of laundry.

In order to create a washing machine that would use less water and less energy while still providing a superior clean Hydrofinity has gone beyond the traditional soap, water, and heat to introduce an entirely new element to the wash process.


Introducing the revolutionary XOrb™ technology.

XOrb technology changed everything. When put into the wash, XOrbs absorb stains and provide a gentle mechanical wash action, reducing the need for large volumes of water and extreme temperatures. By replacing most of the water in the wash cycle with XOrbs, we’re able to limit water use for our customers by up to 80 percent, and reduce energy use by up to 50 percent.

How do Hydrofinity machines work?

When a wash cycle starts, XOrbs are added from inside the machine’s storage area to mix with the fabrics and a small amount of water. The water itself is sprayed in, rather than poured, to improve efficiency – imagine the difference in water usage between a bath and a short shower. The XOrbs gently massage the garments, loosening dirt and stains. XOrbs then expand slightly, creating microscopic cavities that absorb and trap stains, carrying them away from your fabrics in a small amount of cold water.

When the wash cycle is completed, XOrbs automatically return to a holding area inside the machine and are ready to be used again for the next wash.

What happens next?

XOrbs are used for up to a thousand washes and are then collected by our technicians to be recycled and exchanged for new ones.
