A recent study published by Air Quality, Atmosphere, and Health discovered that carcinogens were present on clothing that had been washed with store bought laundry detergent. They found over 25 harmful organic compounds including the carcinogens acetaldehyde and benzene. When carcinogens come in close contact with our bodies, like when we’re wearing freshly laundered clothes, there are grave risks. The carcinogens present in laundry detergent can aggravate your skin and lead to eczema flare ups or even skin cancer. Phthalates, which are known to be in many detergents, can even cause birth defects. Limit your exposure to the toxins present in laundry detergents when you choose our Smart Laundry System.
Now that we’ve spilled the beans on run-of-the-mill laundry detergent and its negative effects on our health it’s time to talk about solutions. At O3waterworks we’ve developed the Aqueous Ozone powered Smart Laundry System. Our Smart Laundry System attaches to your washing machine and turns cold tap water into Aqueous Ozone, or O3. O3 is composed of three loosely bound oxygen atoms. Once combined they release an oxygen ion which becomes a strong oxidizer when infused with water. Aqueous Ozone attacks germs, bacteria, and organic contaminants at a cellular level. When you fold your laundry that smells like a fresh Spring rain you’ll breathe easy knowing that the power of oxygen and water has kept you and your family safe from terrible toxins.
