Some of the most respected hospitals and hotels in the world have been utilizing the science behind the Wash It™ Detergent-Less Laundry Solution for years to effectively clean their laundry. Now it's time for you to discover the benefits of this technology for yourself.

Scientific report examining Wash It™ Technology (excerpts)

Wash It - The Science

Sheila Baker, a professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Missouri-Columbia, examined the technology behind the Wash It Detergent-Less Laundry Solution. Below is a summary of her report:

Ozone, is an unstable molecule made of three oxygen atoms. When ozone is generated, it quickly reverts to the preferred, stable two-atom O2 gas, which releases a very active oxidizing atom that can be used as a replacement to chemical detergents.

Ozone is very economical. It works best in cold water and relaxes the fabric so no softener is required and shortens drying times. Due to the cold water and shorter dryer times, fabric life is often extended. As for whitening abilities, ozone is similar to hydrogen peroxide.

Ozone works for removing stains from laundry.

Those who used ozone in their laundry systems saw notable savings in:

  • Electrical costs
  • Natural gas
  • Chemical costs
  • Water use
  • Labor costs
  • Softener costs
  • Linen replacement

Ozone is also effective in controlling, disinfecting and eradicating microorganisms found in soiled laundry. Leftover water from laundry systems that use ozone contain higher levels of oxygen which benefit bodies of water by providing oxygen for natural microorganisms that break down discharged pollutants.

The reported benefits of ozone are three-fold: economical, microbiological, and environmental.

Save Money With Wash It™

The average family of 4 would save $6,124.10 over the course of 10 years!

Wash It™ Detergent-Less Laundry Solution is the laundry system that pays for itself!

How much will you save every year with Wash It™? In short, you could save enough in a single year to pay for unit. In its estimated life span of 10 years, you could potentially save thousands of dollars!

Below is a breakdown of how you will save annually. These calculations are based on current price averages and the usage of detergent, bleach, fabric softener and electricity for the average family of four. At the end, you'll see the total cost savings for families of 2, 4, 6 and 8.

Dollars Spent To Heat Water (Electronically)

Average washing machine uses 40 gallons of water per load.

8 loads per week x 40 gallons per load = 320 gallons per week.

It takes 0.2 kWh to heat one gallon of water from 57 to 110 degrees.

320 gallons x .2 kWh = 63 kWh.

The average cost of 1 kWh is 11 cents.

64 kWh x 11 cents = $7.04

There are 52 weeks per year.

$7.04 x 52 weeks = $366.08.

Bottom line:

An average family of four will spend $366.08 to heat water (for the purposes of doing laundry) each year.

Dollars Spent On Laundry Detergent

The average family of 4 does 8 loads of laundry per week

8 loads per week x 52 weeks = 416 loads per year.

You can do 32 loads of laundry per container of the leading brand of laundry detergent (50 ounce size).

416 loads / 32 loads per container = 13 containers per year.

The leading brand of laundry detergent costs $14.24 per 50 ounce container.

13 containers x $14.24 = $185.12

Bottom line:

An average family of four will spend $185.12 per year on laundry detergent.

Dollars Spent On Bleach

3 of the 8 loads of laundry that a family of four does per week will use bleach.

8 loads per week x 52 weeks = 156 loads per year.

8 ounces of bleach is recommended per load.

156 loads x 8 ounces = 1248 ounces.

There are 96 ounces of bleach per container of the leading brand.

1248 ounces / 96 ounces per container = 13 containers per year.

The leading brand of bleach costs $2.99 per container.

13 containers x $2.99 per container = $38.87.

Bottom line:

An average family of four will spend $38.87 per year on bleach.

Dollars Spent On Fabric Softener

8 loads of laundry will be done by a family of four each week.

8 loads x 52 weeks per year = 416 loads per year.

A 32 ounce container of the leading brand of fabric softener does 40 loads.

416 loads / 40 = 11 containers per year.

The leading brand of fabric softener costs $5.99 per 34 ounce container.

11 containers x $5.99 = $65.89.

Bottom line:

An average family of four will spend $65.89 per year on fabric softener.
