Space Age System: Wash Your Clothes without Detergent?

hanging laundry I have been laundry obsessed lately. Our washer broke down last week, making me realize how much laundry I actually do in a week. I normally do about two loads of laundry a day without even thinking about it because it is just part of my daily routine. But when it builds up, look out! We lost the cat sometime yesterday. My guess is he is somewhere hiding under a load of whites. It isn’t easy to lose track of a 15-pound cat, so that gives you some idea of how bad things have gotten with the laundry.

Happily, we now possess a new washing machine. Well, it is actually used, but that works fine for me. it was delivered and installed yesterday. So now I am playing laundry catch-up.

While my husband laughs at the obscenely large boxes of detergent I buy, he realizes that in this house even they don’t last long. I do use less detergent than is recommended and supplement with home made laundry detergent. It gets expensive.

That is why I was so excited to learn that there is a company that promised technology to eliminate the use of detergent or even hot water!

ECOQUEST, a company that prides itself on being green and doing its part to save the environment is working on a product that will allow you to wash your laundry on cold water and without any detergent, bleach, or fabric softener!

The LaundryPure system claims to get your clothes clean with the added benefits of protecting the environment and protecting the wear of your clothes and other laundered items. The company says that their system will get whites whiter, colors brighter and towels fluffier using a “NASA Space Certified Technology.” With their system, there is no need to sort different colors of clothing, everything can just be thrown in together.

The system uses silver ions injected into the wash water to do its thing. I get the heebie jeebies about ions, but that is because I just don’t know enough about them.

I couldn’t find out a price on this system, but the company is promising it will pay for itself in a couple of years. The convenience factor alone might be worth the purchase. Right now the company is offering a free trial of the Laundry Pure System. Click here to get to the website. Use the pass-code “guest” to sign in and see a presentation. Then come back here and tell me what you think. Would you buy this detergent-less system?
