Wash It Announces an Eco-Friendly Alternative to Using Laundry Detergent
Brookfield, Mo., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — The Wash It compact device (8×16 inches) connects to any washing machine and turns everyday tap water into a powerful cleaning agent. An electric charge oxidizes water to create activated oxygen (“zone”) and hydroxyl radicals (“OH”) that break chemical bonds. When ozone and OH-radicals come in contact with water they react to help break up soil and stains.
Wash It is economical and environmentally friendly. It works in cold water and cleans fabric without the need for detergent, softener or bleach. Studies have shown an average family of four can save almost $700 a year by reducing the amount of laundry products used in addition to lower utility costs.
A Wash It laundry load is fresh and natural without strong artificial odor. Since Wash It users do not require toxic chemical products or their plastic containers, the average family avoids adding to landfills at a rate of almost forty containers per year.
The device is built with convenience in mind; it eliminates the need to sort clothes by whites and colors, and has whitening abilities equivalent to hydrogen peroxide.
Since a Wash It laundry load takes less time to dry than regular laundry, fabric life is extended. Ozone is a superb antimicrobial agent, 3,000 times more reactive than chlorine bleach. The science behind the Wash It device has been commonly used in the hotel and hospital industry since the early 1980′s to sanitize and disinfect linens, towels and gowns.
The ozone created by the Wash It device eliminates infectious bacteria and viruses such as Strep, Staph, and other superbugs, as well as reduces skin irritations and eliminates allergic reactions from detergents and other soaps left in fabrics.
According to Wash It President Michael Munsterman, the cost of commercial ozone cleaning systems range between $8,000 – $12,000. Munsterman adopted the mission to scale the systems down to residential size and make the technology more affordable.
