Better than Laundry Detergent?

October 7, 2008

Say goodbye to laundry detergent? Living Life Better, Littlestown, PA, has a new appliance which attaches to a standard washing machine to replace the need for detergent and hot water. The system works by injecting oxygen, peroxides and other gases into the wash water line, which bubbles into clothing to lift out dirt and odors. In addition, it adds small amounts of silver to the wash water. The company contends that in testing, the product killed 99.9999% of bacteria, without the use of bleach or hot water, “The benefits of this product are incredible,” said Emil Gamm of Living Life Better. “Allergy relief, financial and energy savings, and a reduction in environmental pollution caused by the release of harmful laundry waste and wasted energy, are all benefits offered by this amazing new product.” Living Life Better admits that if a stain required pre-treatment in the past, it may require pre-treatment before washing in the treated water. However, the company sells organic, biodegradable laundry pre-treater for this purpose. More info: www.living-life-better.com
