Over eleven years after the first patent behind this product was filed, there isn’t a single washing-machine manufacturer in the entire world selling a machine which uses this technology to clean clothes. Is that plausible if it really works?
The magnets will not significantly improve the agitation in the wash. The only way to do that is not to overload the washer, and also frankly to use a front-loading washer rather than a top-loading washer, since the front-loaders achieve far better agitation with less water and less detergent.
We had no trouble installing the pureWash and Wash It systems. But that’s where our positive experience ended. Following our usual laundry detergent test procedure, we loaded the two washers with test fabric swatches soiled with mud, blood, grass, chocolate, and the like. Instead of laundry detergent, pureWash and Wash It systems are supposed to get clothes clean by injecting ozone into the cold wash water. “Ozone is a powerful oxidant; it disinfects, deodorizes and sanitizes,” claims the Wash It web site. “Ozone kills micro-organisms found in soiled laundry (kills bacteria 3,000 times faster than bleach),” says pureWash.
Another common claim is that MWT causes calcium carbonate to precipitate as aragonite, a crystalline modification of CaCO3 that is slightly less stable (and more soluble) than the much more common calcite structure. Some evidence for this has been reported in the literature[⇒]. But it is not clear that the physical properties of aragonite differ all that much from those of calcite.
Hi Jonathan, thank you for this blog. I almost considered going for it after seeing a Facebook ad but had a bad feeling about it. My one point of confusion is how it got so many 4 and 5 star reviews from verified purchasers on Amazon. Any thoughts on the matter?
The basic idea behind how laundry detergent and the magnet laundry system works is the same. They both reduce the surface tension of the water in the washing machine allowing it to more effectively agitate against the fibers of the clothes. This agitation breaks up the dirt, grime, or whatever and leaves your clothes cleaner.
This is really a separate subject, but the purveyors of at least one magnetic device appear not to understand that there is a distinct difference between “magnetized” water (impossible) and electrically “charged” water (also impossible!), or more likely they hope that the suckers who come to their Web site will be sufficiently ignorant to miss this point. The left column contains some paragraphs we found a few years ago on their Web site; the parts that are incorrect, untrue, misleading or scientifically absurd are highlighted. Wholly-Water is not the only outfit that has hawked such schlock to the general public.
Have you know about that magnetic force? Here is the product that harnessing which incredible force and also focusing it in your home washing machine to affect the whole water. At an atomic level, all the thing is affected by magnetic. You will don’t have to buy any another set of the Laundry System units because it operates from the renewable and permanent magnetic source. It is the laundry detergents will work to clean all of your clothes, but are really non-renewable petrochemicals and create you the good health and eliminate the environmental risks and potentially avoids the poisonous chemical by-products.
We often keep experimenting in our lives. From cuisines to brands, we keep trying new things. But there is something with the detergents. No matter how many we try, we never seem to have the best results to be satisfied enough. And, we are so busy in our monotonous lives, that we forget about the chemicals that lurk on our clothes and are inhales by us. Now you may say that chemicals have become an inevitable part of our lives, but wait, let me tell you that Magnetic Laundry System is chemical free.

You basically place the two magnets on the side walls of your washing machine. They’ll hold themselves in place all while doing what they’re supposed to do. If you’re machine has a plastic tub you can place them either into the pockets of some pants, or in a couple socks (one magnet per pocket or sock please).
In addition, by polarizing the water droplets we increase their “free-charge”, allowing dirt to be grabbed and easily removed from the garment. When this happens, the water is considered “activated”. Along with this process, the minerals and salts suspended in the water, become activated into an “ionic” form (charged particles), aiding in the cleaning process.
I just got a refund on these crap magnets. I’m not getting a refund on the clothes that have baked in stains in them, now. Second, my Samsung steam washing machine now errors out during the wash cycle and have to restart the cycle. Did the magnets ruin the programming on my washing machine? Those fuckers. Where’s the class action law suit? I want to sign up.
PATENTED AND INDEPENDENTLY PROVEN!…There Is No Other Non-Detergent Laundry Technology In Existence That Has Two United States Patents (and Additional Patents Pending) and Is Proven In Independent Laboratory Testing. You Have Never Seen, Heard About Or Tried Anything Like It Before!
At its most basic though, WaterLiberty is claimed to activate the oxygen in water, which removes the carbon suspended between water molecules and breaks down carbon waste. In other words, WaterLiberty is claimed to make the contaminants inert, while keeping all the essential nutrients it contains in tact. On top of this, WaterLiberty claims to not only remove toxins from water, but to also neutralize substances with your body and make them harmless within 72 hours.
People want to believe that the magnets they just spent money on are the real deal, because the alternative to that is admitting that they did something stupid and got ripped off. People don’t like doing that, so they unconsciously rationalize and filter to avoid having to do so. Scammers know this, and they are adept at using it to get people to buy their products.
The “invention” they sell is two magnets encased in rubbery plastic, which you’re supposed to put into your washing machine instead of detergent. The Web site claims, “Research by Physicist Dr. Hendrick Lorentz shows that with the right magnetic fields, water molecules (H2O) [sic] are made to have similar effects that detergent chemicals do… in other words, they stick to other tiny particles like dirt, and carry them off!”
While they won’t improve the agitation in the wash, what the magnets could do is actually damage your washer, especially if you’re using a front-loader. Since they are dense and heavy, they make it harder for the washer to balance itself properly during the spin cycles. This adds increased wear to the washer’s moving parts and will cause the washer to need repairs more often.
Washing clothes with less detergent is a good idea. In some cases, even washing clothes with no detergent is a good idea. But people don’t need this product to use less or no detergent. All they need is the knowledge that they don’t need to use as much detergent to get their clothes clean.
I have a Meile washer and Dryer front loads and can only use Purcell boxed soap and have no problems coming clean and always wash with cold water,never hot and they come out clean!!So Iwill stick with my Purcell soap and only need a 1/2 oz of soap!!no magnets for me!!I do like the nana towels to clean glass computer and I pad screens and windows,fire place glass ,microwave glass door and my glasses I wear love those towels!!
After 5 emails and phone calls I was told I would get the full refund, but not the s & h! So you pay for a product that does not work, pay for the s & h to receive it and pay for the s & h to send it back to the merchant, looks like the post office is the only entity benefiting from this classic scam!
A Pennsylvania company claims that their magnetic Fuel Conditioner works with gasoline, diesel, bunker oil, and natural gas, and that it will “enable your company to meet EPA clean air regulations without the tremendous cost of scrubbers and other expensive emission-reducing equipment.” How are these results, unknown to science and technology, achieved?
An article Resist the pull of magnet medicine (incorrectly cited as appearing in the Winter 2003 issue of Health Quarterly but quoted here) discusses a variety of magnet-related medical scams; see this latter link for experiences of patients who have tried magnets for diabetic neuropathic pain.
Norwex describes the Magnet Ball as a water softening device which magnetically attracts calcium and magnesium molecules from water, and alters them in such a way so that they lose their ability to cause scale, AKA hard water build up. It doesn’t actually soften your water, but it makes hard water act like it’s soft.
