One purveyor of MFT poppycock makes the absurd claim that their magnetic device “puts a strong, positive charge into the fuel”, and they even offer a set of three magnets for the fuel system, radiator water (!) and air intake (!!) The site makes numerous claims about fuel savings and emissions reduction, quotes many “testimonials” and even some performance data which I consider inadequately documented and find very difficult to take seriously. They claim that their magnets employ “mono-pole technology”, which to me implies the use of monopolar magnets, although no such magnet is known to science; another page on the same vendor’s site describes their fudging on this matter but offers no supporting evidence or references to what they refer to as “magnetic single focus”.
Magnetic Laundry System is highly preferable and easily available online. It isn’t available offline at any store or shop. It is easily available at a pocket-friendly price and lasts a lifetime. Yes, it does last a lifetime, as it comes with the manufacturer’s warranty of 50 years.
NESI (Natural Environmental Solutions Inc. of Las Vegas, Nev, whose Web site, thankfully, recently disappeared) offered to “Magnetically enhance your body’s natural energy” — In addition to the usual water and fuel conditioners (including a magnetic showerhead that “Has Been Proven To Consistently Remove Over 90% Of Free Chlorine”, (starting every word with a capital letter presumably makes this more authoritative!) they offered a variety of Bio-Magnets that “magnetically enhance your body’s natural energy”, such as “Plaque fighting magnetic toothbrushes” (“Get teeth whiter and eliminate unslightly build up”), magnetic coffee cups, magnetic insoles (your choice of all-north or bipolar) and a Quartz Crystal Simulator (“High voltage stimulation ideal for on the spot use” ?!) .. or, for your dog, magnetic pet collars and a magnetic pet bed.
In fact, the massive rocks encircling Stonehenge are not “paramagnetic”. Those who composed this bumpf are probably referring to the [fictional] ley lines (another bit of pseudoscience) that are alleged to pass through this ancient site.
Those are precious. My 8-year-old son is BEGGING to help with the laundry (seriously!) but I am struggling with finding a good system. I want him to be able to help, but I don’t want to babysit him to tell him exactly what kind of treatment each load needs. Maybe I need to start putting laundry symbols on the hampers. (And maybe I need to search your archives too!)
There is some evidence that externally-applied magnetic fields can provide relief of certain types of chronic pain. A major difficulty in any such study is in eliminating the placebo effect which generally requires a double-blind protocol. Here are a few recent references to the scientific literature:
Everything you need to do is stick to a couple of the magnets in your washer….and you don’t have to worry about whatever your detergent is doing to the drain field, or also adding one more big jug to the recycling bin each week. It is the safe and all the natural cleaner, also replaces the chemical liquid and the powder HE detergent and the soap. This product will help with the allergies and also chemical sensitivities to the detergents. It will work under the unique means of the water maintenance through the direct application of the magnetic force. This product is the chemical free and clear. This product will work in all the kinds of the washing machines. This unit might end up in sticking together in the washing process. This product is absolutely normal and does not eradicate the effectiveness because it will emit the equal level of the magnetic force whether you are attracted to together or not. In this product, the laundry units only require being submerged or in the close proximity to the water for highly-effective.
If you really wanted to “confirm the information posted above,” you could have asked me, and I could have provided you with copies of the on-line receipt for my order from Powerful Life, my credit-card statements showing when they charged me for shipping the product and for the product itself, the shipping label showing when they actually shipped it, and the USPS delivery confirmation record showing when it arrived at my house.
Through a chemical process, detergents make surfaces more susceptible to water and increase the pH levels, making it easier for water to detach the dirt from the fabrics. The downside is that most of the chemical ingredients used to achieve this are toxic to your health and the environment.*
Alternatively, Water Liberty Magnetic System is a safer, better, and more effective option for getting your clothes clean without any issues. With this magnet based product, you can experience the quality results that you are looking for to finally free yourself from regular detergent.
Dear Gloria, I’ve been trying to learn about using vinegar & 2 tsp of salt as a laundry detergent replacement, and haven’t found any studies. Your comment gives me hope – do you have any references, or information/websites I can show my family? Thanks heaps!
The company selling these magnets is counting on the fact that by the time the detergents are completely washed out (it takes several wash cycles) and it becomes obvious that the magnets are useless, the 90-day money-back guarantee will have expired, and most people will be too lazy to fight with the company to get their money back.
Finally, teens (& others) avoiding the chore of putting away clean dishes will not have the excuse of not knowing whether the dishes are clean or dirty! Contemporary Moroccan Trellis / Quatrefoil Desi…

I am also taking steps to communicate to this distributor so it never happens to another customer. If it does, their ability to sell our product will be jeopardized. Period. Our customers deserve our complete honor and respect.

I have found that the skin irritation from laundry detergent is from the fragrance. I cannot be in the same room as a box of Gain detergent. I use the kind without perfume. I remember when most homes had a bar of Naptha soap for laundry, it worked great.
Influence of altering magnetic field on chemical properties of water, scale formation and morphology was studied using polyethylene and copper pipes located both in a laboratory pilot-system and in an apartment complex formed by five different buildings each having four or five different homes. In the pilot network, magnetic field decreased calcium scaling by 15% in the both studied piping materials. Also, surface film on the copper pipe appeared to be less compact by the magnetic exposure. In the studies conducted in the apartment complex, magnetic field effectively mobilized earlier accumulated iron and copper from the copper pipe surfaces especially dealing with a hot water circuit.
