Can you use the magnet ball in the dryer to dry clothes etc quicker/more effectively as many times larger items such as linen can turn into a ‘ball’ and not dry as effectively. Can it assist? Is it safe?
The “softness” of water refers to the absence of dissolved salts, not to low surface tension. I am unaware of any evidence that the surface tension of water is affected by a magnetic field. Anyone with access to a capillary tube and a magnet can test this for themselves, since capillary rise is proportional to surface tension.
Dishwasher Balls (alas, their site is down), are certainly well-described: “Composed of high molecular active substance, it does not consist of any harmful chemical elements. Anti-oversensitive it is skin-protective to hands. Stop using harmful detergent, CodeWash Dishwasher Ball helps to avoid one’s getting different kinds of common diseases such as urinary gall bladder, lowering blood count index or female blood disease increase, especially the deadly cancerous disease.”
Because the Magnetic Laundry System magnets are such a powerful cleaning technology, they will remove detergent scum from everywhere in the washer and your clothes might become blotched with the scum that is coming from the tub. If this occurs, try washing them a few more times with the Magnetic Laundry System to see if they become clean again. Just keep using the System and you won’t have to repeat the tub cleaning procedure ever again.
This product removes any noise which may be created by the force of the horizontal axis. You don’t have to stick to the machine to supervise if it works properly. It works well with all the variety of washing machines. The laundry units may end up sticking together in the washing process, hence the units should be submerged or put in the water for maximum effectiveness.
Effects of magnetic fields on microbial metabolism. Some references to this topic can be found in U.S. patent 5318045 for the use of magnets in bioremediation processes.The applicants show some experimental data indicating that a N. pole can materially alter the efficacy of certain types of bacterially-mediated oxidation of pollutants. No references to published studies are given.
Note: Though the MLS System is magnetic, it does not have to stick to your drum to work. In fact many drums today are plastic, stainless or otherwise non-magnetic. They will still work in your machine. Read the directions carefully when your MLS arrives and follow them. The MLS is likely a new concept to you, so read the instructions so you completely understand it. Read the Q&A from other users in this listing as well. You can always contact us with any questions too. And remember to register your limited lifetime warranty online or through the mail.
The usual schtick is that the molecules of gasoline and similar fuels are “clustered” together, and a magnet inserted in the fuel line will break up these aggregates, thereby allowing more even and efficient combustion. This is not only supposed to save fuel, but it also reduces the buildup of carbon in the cylinders and reduces pollution. Other hucksters offer devices that purport to use “far infrared technology” to achieve the same purposes. A 1998 review found virtually no convincing evidence for the efficacy of magnetic fuel treatment.
There is no other Magnetic Laundry System as its formula is protected, verified and patented by two patents. The tests are not limited to the laboratories as the consumers who have used this product use words like: ‘Magic’, ‘Ecological’, ‘Clean’, ‘Savings’, ‘Incredible’, ‘Environmentally friendly’, ‘No stinky smell’ etc.
The dog balls will work fine on their own, without anything, I think I get better result with the baking soda and salt. The baking soda deodorizes the clothes. The salt helps to get rid of perspiration stains, helps prevent colour bleeding, and as we live on a farm, it kills any nasties including chicken flea eggs.
Don’t have to read all comments, have one of my own. Yes, water alone does get clothes clean, and all the suds and all the commercial detergents do pollute the earth, cause problems with our machines etc by clogging and wearing them out sooner, and we help line the pockets of those who manufacture and push on people who are not learned about life in many ways. Big mouth Nancy is at it again. I make my own cleaning products, and it does help the earth not pollute…why does Amazon keep helping scam artists? I am getting a letter off to them and will be posting my feelings about some of their products they have for sale on their site. I use A. for a lot , but we humans do not need to line to pockets of some of these scam artists…Starting here, I doubt till I prove. Just Sayin’….
Bruce Toback checked the claims for “The Laundry Solution” and found that “[t]he claims make perfect sense, and are in complete accord with the current state of scientific knowledge… There is not a single false claim in their marketing material. In fact, it’s a model of probity compared to the verbiage printed on a box of laundry detergent:
Contact whoever sold them to you and ask how to get a refund. Prepare to be stonewalled, but if you are persistent you will probably succeed. As a worst-case scenario you can dispute the credit-card charge.
But now to the practical test, which was conducted by my assistant Jane. (You may think it sexist that she got stuck doing the laundry, but she volunteered.) She stained various items of clothing with ketchup, chocolate, ink, grass, and “some of the purple dye I use for my hair.” That Jane! She washed three batches, one with three laundry disks from Real Goods, one with Tide, one in plain water. As advised, she used a pre-wash stain treatment on all the batches. Result: little difference among the three except that the disks did better getting rid of the grass stain. “Hm,” said Jane.
In 2009 the Spanish consumer organization OCU made a study of “ecobolas” (a of laundry ball marketed in Spain). It compared the efficacy of the laundry ball, normal detergent, and no detergent at all. It concluded that laundry balls were no better than using just water, and it recommended that consumers simply use a minimum amount of detergent.
Commercial promotions of MWT devices tend to make excessively optimistic claims without offering credible supporting performance data. And when they do offer “case-studies”, they are rarely thoroughly researched to engineering standards, and are frequently difficult if not impossible to verify. Some invoke the malevolent actions of the conventional water-softener industry (conspiracy theories are one of the favorite refuges of pseudoscience advocates of all kinds.) I myself have been accused (on certain Web pages) of being a secret employee of the Water Quality Association trade group !
The electrons spend more time around the oxygen and less time around the hydrogen, making it positive. The permanent magnets create a powerful magnetic field that aligns the water molecules (hydrogen in one direction, oxygen in the other). This alignment drastically reduced the “surface tension” of the water. This results in the “drops” becoming much smaller so that they can easily penetrate the fabric.
The Oregon state attorney general, for instance, won $190,000 from two companies selling such products, in a settlement in which the companies agreed to stop selling their wares in Oregon, but were not required to admit to any criminal fraud.
One major vendor warns of the supposed dangers of conventional detergents (they are, after all, “petrochemicals”!) One of their pages provides links to a report from an outside testing lab that, if genuine, gives all appearances of itself having been “laundered” in that no comparisons of the effectiveness of their magnetic balls are made with non-magnetic balls (or even with rocks!), or with conventional detergents.
