If you’re finding yourself cleaning and sanitising your home a lot more at the moment, you might be curious to know the science behind your cleaning products and how they can achieve such sparkling results.
In many of our H2O steam cleaners you only need to add tap water in order to produce the steam that blasts away dirt and grime. Yet the H2O e3 Natural Cleaning System has its own revolutionary technology called S-Water, or more widely known as electrolyzed water, that creates a perfect eco-safe cleaning solution for every job, for every day and everywhere.
Let us take you through a brief history of electrolyzed water, how it works and what the future looks like for the cleaning solution.
What is electrolyzed water?
Electrolyzed water is made up of only water and salt. To create the solution, these ingredients are added to a special reactor that produces an electric current and causes the chemicals to react.
This process is called electrolysis and causes the pH levels of the solution to rise, which results in the solution becoming more acidic. The new properties of the water means it can kill or prevent the growth of germs and bacteria molecules.
Where did electrolyzed water come from?
Electrolyzed water is a relatively new idea that has gained attention and popularity in recent years as a effective sanitizer.
The technology was first developed in Russia over a century ago, before becoming more widely used in Japan.
Medical institutions in Japan began adopting the technology around 1980, when doctors would use the water to sterilise and disinfect equipment and treat foot fungus and bedsores. It was quickly discovered that the technology could be beneficial in other fields and was used to kill bacteria in food, as well as clean surfaces instead of using harsh chemicals.
Today, electrolyzed water is produced and used around the world, including in Europe, the United States and China.
What does the future of electrolyzed water look like?
Electrolyzed water has revolutionized cleaning, which is easy to see from the super sanitising powers of the H2O e3 Natural Cleaning System.
The H2O e3 has introduced homeowners around the world to the power of S-Water. Using only tap water and table salt, the eActivator inside the H2O e3 emits low levels of electricity into a mixture of salt (NaCl) and water (H2O), which causes a reaction that breaks apart molecules and produces two new powerful oxidants (NaOH & HClO). This produces S-Water.
S-Water has been proven to kill 99% of bacteria, such as E.coli and S. Aureus, whilst breaking down and neutralising odours in a matter of seconds.
The simple technology is also eco-friendly. S-Water only uses natural ingredients, which means the H2O e3 doesn’t produce any toxic chemicals or release harmful fumes into the earth’s atmosphere. So not only are you helping to preserve the environment, you’re protecting yourself and your family.
The use of electrolyzed water in cleaning is also economical. It is easily and quickly produced during the cleaning process, which reduces the costs of producing and purchasing other cleaning products and chemicals.
With so many benefits of using electrolyzed water, the solution has the potential to be used in many industries, and could be one of the leading sanitisers for the future.
