Laundry – A Cleaner Way
NASA was the first to develop this new technology that not only spares flora and fauna but is actually more effective at cleaning fabrics. It was a win-win solution because it uses no detergents and relies on advanced ionization technology to remove unwanted particles. Thus, it is without a doubt the most environmentally friendly option to reduce your carbon footprint while getting your clothes cleaner than ever before. If you want a detailed list on the benefits or process, check out our Laundry Pro Service page.
Laundry Pro negates the need for:
- Laundry Detergents
- Fabric Softeners
- And Even Hot Water!
Just How Bad is Detergent For the Environment?
Many detergent companies have insisted that phosphates are harmless to the environment, and removing them would negatively impact the cleanliness of our clothes. However, studies have shown that phosphates cause harmful overgrowth of algae in freshwater. In addition, there are many additives to laundry detergents that have no place in any natural habitat.
Even your basic surfactants (soap) are toxic to a lot of aquatic wildlife. They break down mucus coatings that protect fish and other creatures from bacteria. As if that weren’t bad enough, surfactants break surface tension and make pollutants more easily absorbed by aquatic life.
On top of the environmental effects, laundry detergent is even worse for allergies than what meets the eye. Lots of people are allergic to fragrances, but did you know detergents can trap allergens such as dust and pollen in the garment?
