While saving the environment is nice, it may not be keeping us as clean as past practices did. When it comes to washing clothes, modern efficient washers leave more germs behind then older, less efficient models. Spruce up your washing machine and other appliances with Hot Tub Silver.
When it comes to keeping Hospital Acquired Infections (and specifically ones caused by drug resistant superbugs) under-wraps, a lot of money is spent tracking down where they come from. It turns out, consumer-grade energy efficient washing machines may be one source. For the average healthy person, this isn’t a big deal, you can continue saving money and the environment with little worry. But if anyone using the washing machine has a weakened immune system, it’s important to take a few minutes each month to clean it.
Here’s how to clean your washing machine:
Some brands sell special soap-pods to use with the washing machine’s self-cleaning cycle.
Researchers from the study recommend using a 10% bleach solution to wipe down gaskets, clean the soap drawer, and to run a stand-alone bleach cycle once a month.
Use hot water and harsher cleaning agents (like bleach or a color-safe alternative) when washing body fluids.
Or, use colloidal silver. Hot Tub Silver is lower grade (not-supplement) colloidal silver that’s useful for appliances like hot tubs, washing machines, dishwashers, etc. It’s safer to use with clothes than bleach, and may even help keep items that tend to be smelly (socks, gym clothes…) fresh. It’s not a novel idea—some clothes already come lined with nano silver and marketed as germ/odor resistant, and there have been lines of washing machines that used nanosilver to fight superbugs (but the effect doesn’t last for the life of the machine if you’re not adding more). Hot Tub Silver is a cheaper, more efficient, more practical solution to keeping your washing machine clean.
To protect weak immune systems, make sure to clean your washing machine at least once a month. Hot Tub Silver is a useful tool for helping keep appliances fresh and clean.
