THE SIMPLE SCIENCE
Behind the SmartKlean® Laundry Ball
Have you ever wondered how detergent is capable of removing dirt & grime from clothing? The answer is simple. Detergent helps the water clean.
Through a chemical process, detergent makes surfaces more susceptible to water, 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.*
SmartKlean® Laundry Ball uses an innovative technology designed to clean fabrics through a harmless and physical process.
On a molecular level, the water is entirely affected by its mineral ceramics plus a pumping effect caused by its weight. It removes dirt and grime from garments by simply enhancing the water’s natural cleaning powers.
General Function of the SmartKlean® Laundry Ball
The laundry ball is filled with 4 types of earth mineral ceramic beads & 2 magnets, each performing different functions.
When these components come in contact with water, they form oxygenated water and increase pH levels making it easy for the weight and shape of the ball to beat off germs and bacteria – like the ancient way of washing laundry by beating garments over rocks!
How SmartKlean® Laundry Ball
Affects Water at a Molecular Level
One of the key features of SmartKlean® Laundry Ball's technology is its ability to restructure water “clusters” (molecule groups). Water molecules come in clusters rather than single molecules.
REGULAR TAP WATER CLUSTER
(10-14 water molecules)
SMARTKLEAN® MICRO CLUSTER
(5-6 water molecules)
Tap water has very large clusters (10 to 14 molecules per cluster). SmartKlean® is designed to reduce large water clusters from their original size into much smaller clusters (5-6 molecules per cluster).
How SmartKlean® Laundry Ball
Enhances Water's Natural Cleaning Powers
A smaller cluster size gives water excellent cleaning properties, high solubility and good permeability. Water clusters in smaller groups lead to a better absorption of water through the tiny open spaces or “pores” of the fabrics. This technology enables and strengthens
the water’s ability to ‘physically’ clean and rinse dirt
off fabrics without the use of chemicals.

* Laundry detergents and stain removers frequently contain alkyl phenol ethoxylates (APEs), which are common surfactants. APEs can damage the immune system, and they are suspected hormone disruptors, which means they can mimic hormones in the body that regulate reproduction and development.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has also warned that ethoxylated alcohol surfactants, such as APEs, may be contaminated with carcinogenic 1, 4-dioxane, which penetrates skin. Tests conducted in 1997 by the Washington Toxics Coalition found that supermarket or drugstore labels are more likely to contain APEs.
