Detergent-Free Washing Machine

HaierA new washing machine from Haier, China’s largest home appliance manufacturer, is marketing the WasH20, which doesn’t use detergent to clean clothes. Instead, it breaks down water molecules into their OH- and H+ ionic components. The OH- acts a cleaning agent, attracting and retaining stains, while the H+ ions sterilize and clean the clothes.

The machine is only available for sale in France for the equivalent of about $1,000. No word on when it may become available in the States, or if it would sell for a similar price.

Only time my tell how effective this machine is at cleaning or if other brands will launch similar machines.
