Detergentless Washing Machine Cleans Clothes and Rivers


Yes, it sounds impossible, but apparently they've done it. A washing machine that doesn't use detergent. It's patented, of course, and it would seem that this machine converts water into a kind of detergent. Any chemist knows that soap, really, is just a way of viagra without rx making water wetter. And by breaking water into H+ and OH- ions, the Wash2O is able to www.pereverges.cat clean clothes with a slightly basic solution, and then sterlize them with a slightly acidic solution. Then, before dumping the water, everything is mixed back together to pH neutral.

It's a pretty fantastic idea. If you could get on in America, it would set you back about $1000, but remember that you'd never have to buy detergent again, and you wouldn't have to feel bad about dumping phosphates into the rivers.

Though, I think I'll wait to hear some first-hand reports.

what about electricity?
written by Ben, July 30, 2007
Hydrolysis isn't cheap in terms of the energy required to actually split water molecules. I would have to assume that this washing machine consumes more electricity than your average washer - how much more? If it's significantly more than the average then you have to take into account where you're getting your energy from and factor that into considering whether it's "cleaner" than using a conventional washer with an energy efficient system and biodegradable detergent.

(I'd do the cialis to buy fact-checking on the website myself but, alas, I only speak English.)

What about electricity
written by Dustin Reimer, July 30, 2007
It would be great for those of us interested in generating our own power, I myself am planning on roguelephant.com putting in my own mini hydro generator, or a wind generator.

Not Hydrolysis
written by Hank, July 31, 2007
This is www.gallin.fr a catalytic reaction, not hydrolysis. While I imagine that this uses more electricity than other front-loaders, it's probably not all that significant.

Hydrolysis produces H2 and O2...this is just an acid base reaction.

But you're right, we don't have data on power. Though it's likely that it won't use any more energy than mining, synthesizing, mixing, packaging and shipping detergent.

Well ...
written by Wolf, July 31, 2007
looks like this beastie isn't energy-hungry, it has A/A/B power rating, (A = best, G = worst) eats 1.14 kw, and has no public price, according to the website. on the "On en parle" page ("we speak of it") It is stated "???€" which can be translated by .... at worst 999€ ... equals 1400~ USD.

Besides this little translation for everyone, I'd like to cheapest cialis online state that for now it is a website, we do not know if the clothes are well cleaned, or if it is not efficient.

PS : Wash2o reads "wash de zoo" (H2O in french)

Cheaper solution: eco-balls or soap nuts
written by Klaus Seistrup, July 31, 2007
While I look forward to hear about people's experience with the WasH₂O, a much cheaper solution is eco-balls (http://mink.zone237.dk/2007/07...skine.html) or soap nuts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapindus).

This is chinese ?
written by litteuldav, August 01, 2007
This seems to be a very interesting machine, but is that me or is anybody else intrigued by the fact that it comes from China ?
For as long as i know, chinese people just begin to look at ecology very recently.
And they didn't really had the viagra dose time to develop such a technology.

Plus the fact that nobdy has ever heard of this technology before ...

I really will have to listen at first adopters or serious reviews on this product before buying it

Soap (atleast old-school soap) is basic because traditional soap-making is based on treating fats with lye (very easy to do). It isn't the alkalinity of the soap that makes it good at cutting dirt (acidic soap would work too), it's the fact that it is composed of how to buy viagra nonpolar chains with polar ends. This allows nonpolar (greasy) substances to be soluble (sort of) in the highly polar H2O via microscopic soap-bubbles (called micelles).

OH- ions themselves are just polar, so nonpolar contaminants like grease are just going to www.absmag.fr sit right where they are, on your clothes, untouched. That said, this probably works really well if you only get table salt on your clothes...

written by Matt Johnson, February 08, 2008

Soap Nuts are actually not nuts at all. They are berries (also known as Soap Berries) that grow on trees in India & Nepal.

written by Mary the prefold cloth diaper lady, July 07, 2011
Modern soap powder is crap. High detergent and full of fillers to bulk it up. The stuff for cold water use is worse still. Ask any drain layer abou the buy cialis for daily use effect od washing powder on drains - it can eventually clog them up with gunk. The only washing poweder I know that is levitra online store not like the above is stuff called SA8 from Amway corporation it is great - no filler, no smell, very low detergent, use so very little per wash. I have used it to wash the prefold cloth diapers and other clothing and www.celebratinglife.org it works well.
