Crystal Wash 2.0: Detergent-Free Laundry

The Crystal Wash 2.0 is a modern detergent-free laundry system. In fact, the Crystal version 2.0 sounds like a product out of a science fiction novel – reusable beads that clean your clothes without chemicals, dyes, allergens, or even soap. It’s an eco-friendly laundry system that can last for years. Just toss that ball of beads into your washing machine, and your clothes come out dirt-free and odour-free. The beads just need to be “recharged” in the sun every month or so. Sounds like science fiction, right? But really, it’s just science. The Kickstarter campaign for this soap-free laundry detergent amassed over $250, 000, supassing its monetary goals, and is now in production. But how does it work and is it effective? crystalwash-01 Essentially, the Crystal Wash system can wash your clothing without soap by changing the pH levels of water naturally. Most commercial detergents use chemicals to raise the pH of the water for a better clean, but Crystal Wash does this without any additives. Raising the pH levels in the water does two things: First, higher pH levels in the water improve the effectiveness of any method of laundry and it prevents fading and damage to fabrics. Higher alkaline laundry water also allows dirt to soak out of your clothes freely. Secondly, the process which this system uses to raises the pH in the water creates a hydrogen peroxide byproduct that disinfects and eliminates odours, cleaning the clothes without any soap. crystalwash-02 The pH levels are increased naturally because of the materials that make up the beads. The beads are made of “bio ceramics” that are non-toxic, natural cleaners. The minerals in the beads have anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties that effectively clean and deodorize your laundry. The beads need to be exposed to the sun once every 30 loads to continue to effectively raise the pH of the laundry water.   crystalwash-03 The 2.0 version of the Crystal Wash system adds sensors in the ball that holds the beads and connects the sensor wirelessly to your computer or phone through an app. The sensor measures the pH levels of the water (and thus how well your clothes are being cleaned) and relays that information to the app. This added feature will alert you when your laundry is finished and will remind you when you need to put the beads in the sun for a recharge. With its low impact on the environment and the huge savings in laundry detergent, the Crystal Wash beads might completely revolutionize how we do our laundry. Crystal Wash claims that the beads last up to 1000 loads of laundry. This means that if a family does 2-3 loads of laundry per week, the beads would last between 5-10 years! And with the added convenience of reminders and cleaning stats on the new app, the Crystal Wash system is ready to bring this household chore to the future.   Video:
