Ionized water

Water that abundant and life giving resource is now being utilized by individuals as a legitimate cleaning product. The form of water that is being pigeonholed as a cleaning product is ionized water. Water becomes ionized when it has been subjected to a process termed ionization, where the water undergoes electrolysis, contact with a direct electrical current. This effectively segregates the acid and alkaline content found in H2O.

Once the water has been effectively ionized it can be used for a variety of purposes. Some people opt to drink it, thinking it is beneficial to human health. However there is no observed evidence attesting to this notion. Another avenue in which ionized water is used is as a cleaning product, to sanitize food products and sanitizing utensils, and surfaces. The way in which the ionized water cleans surfaces by attracting dirt and bacteria and when sprayed carries a low-level electric field to the surface where the germs may be living. The manufacturer says this low-level electric field ruptures and kills germs which can then be easily wiped away – without leaving any chemical residue.

Though the actual beneficial qualities of ionized water are relatively shaky and unsubstantial, the fact that it is friendly to the environment and also has no adverse effects on humans and pets makes it an attractive cleaning product.  It is commonly used in four-star restaurants, food processing plants, and large hotels, thus giving it a try in your home cleaning routine might prove quite advantageous.

But how do you transform your ordinary tap water into a germ eradicating amazing cleaning product from the comfort of your humble abode. The answer to this query comes in the form of a new piece of technology called The ionator HOM. This is a small (28 cms), sleek device that effectively ionizes water. It can be used on a wide range of different surfaces including glass, stainless steel, marble, and carpet or fabrics, and kills 99.9% of bacteria – including E. coli, VRE, Salmonella, MRSA, Pseudomonas, Staph, Listeria and E. coli 0157:H7 and 100% of the H1N1 virus. This compact device can hold up to 0.35 litres of water, enough to clean the majority of your surfaces in one go.  It is powered by built-in rechargeable batteries. This battery will need to be recharged when they become low, on average every 2 weeks.

In regards to cleaning professionals the ionator EXP is a great ionizer to take advantage of. It is a larger model than the previous ionator being 33 cm high and kills 99.9% of most detrimental bacteria and the H1N1 virus. It can hold more water than the above mentioned ionator in the form of 0.5 litres of water.

Though these ionators may be quite costly ( ranging from £104-203 ) they are will save you money in the long run as you will not be needing to purchase any exorbitant and harmful chemical cleaners. Additionally you will be ensuring the safety of your pets and your family as ionized water is a completely toxin free and natural avenue in cleaning your house.
