SO today I have this product called Crystal Wash – and it is quite cool! It is a detergent free way to wash your clothes. It is quite cool the system itself consists of two spheres that have some sort of rock/bead like things inside of them (kind of resembles what a ship on star wars would look like – and I mean this in a very cool way). It can do 1,000 loads of laundry (thats a LOT of laundry). This product lets you clean your cloths without using any of the dyes, perfumes or chemicals like some of the big well known laundry detergents.
Here is the video for their Kickstarter.
Their kickstarted description states: These special Bio Ceramics were developed using various minerals with very effective antibacterial and anti-oxidant properties. The pH level of laundry water impacts the wash greatly. If the water is overly acidic or alkaline it can damage delicate clothes and fabrics, cause colors to fade and cause clothing to still seem dirty even after washing. Most detergents on the market are a pH level of 6.5 – 9, but they use chemicals to achieve these levels.
As the Bio Ceramics collect odors, dirt and waste from your laundry, they need to be ‘recharged’ in order to make sure the pH levels of the laundry water continue to be raised. To recharge Crystal Wash you simply put them in the sun for an afternoon. You only need to do this approximately every 30 days (or 30 laundry loads). There is nothing else you need to do… Just a little sun and they will be just as effective as their first wash.
As a couponer – I stockpile EVERYTHING – however I will say when you look at the cost per load on a *couponer’s priced* laundry detergent and compare it to this product – I think this product wins (especially with the natural route this product takes). These retail around $50.00 and I actually plan on switching to these full time (granted I do need to get through my stock pile). I just love that these are a natural alternative to detergent (I LOVE Natural Products!)
Here is the GREAT news – One of my subscribers will be winning one of these! I will e-mail the winner!
