Contained within the Washball are Far Infrared and Magnetic ceramic balls which act to split water clusters and excite the water molecules, turning tap water into activated water. This activated water has superior washing characteristics and is able penetrate between the fibres of fabrics to remove dirt, protein and grease, a lot more effectively than tap water.

Splits water clusters into smaller clusters
When far infrared rays are emitted into the water, the resonance created by them decreases the size of the water clusters from 12-15 to 5-6 molecules. This process weakens the surface tension of the water allowing it to effectively penetrate deep inside fabrics, releasing the adhesiveness of dirt, protein and grease from the fibres of the fabrics easily.
Increases pH of water
Chemical detergents remove stains off clothes by alkalising water. Protein and grease, the two major types of stains are easily removed through a high pH. The alkaline ceramic balls also have the ability to alkalise water. These ceramic balls are made of inorganic minerals with a high ionising properties and when they come in contact with water, they oxidise and the water becomes deoxidised… it’s all part of the chemistry.
Mitigates bacterial propagation
Antibacterial ceramic balls generate electrons (e-) and electron holes (H+). The electron holes form hydroxyl radicals (OH radicals), which are strong oxidising agents. The hydroxyl radicals kill bacteria and deter bacterial growth by breaking down organic compounds the comprise bacteria and its cell membrane. They can even decompose bacterial remains.
Slows down oxidation & deformation processes
TM (Total Micro-organism) ceramic balls have undergone a special transforming process, whereby the ceramic powders are mixed with a TM solution, which contains various beneficial micro-organisms (photosynthetic bacteria etc), which act to detoxify and purify. These organisms slow down the oxidation and deformation process in fabrics and help to protect them. They also produce superoxide radicals and hydroxyls, which remove nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, volatile organic compounds and other foul smelling gases.
Increases dissolved oxygen
Magnetic balls act to magnetise the water creating hexagonally arranged H2O molecules. These hexagonally arranged water molecules have a relatively weak hydrogen bond, and form smaller water clusters than ordinary tap water, effectively increasing the dissolved oxygen content. In addition, the magnetism created by the magnetic balls, kills bacteria and other pathogens in the water.
