Sweater knit formed pellets. How to deal with them?

In the 90s were popular cars to collect the pellets that worked on batteries. There are also mechanical devices. Quite humane to knitted things. Are the cars better and worse with different quality. Cost a penny. Now on sale I have not seen them. So knitted items "pluck" the old fashioned way with your hands as needed. Although long, it turns out.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\pitisci are formed again and again - it is a process that cannot be stopped. But something can be done, after all. If soften water conditioner for knitted things or vinegar (although the smell...), the pellets are formed less. Better to wash by hand, although machine guns and have a mode of washing of knitted things.
