Not only is “THE LAUNDRY DETERGENT” developed for the users, this detergent boasts low environmental impact. Detergents are 100% biodegradable and when dumped into rivers as waste, it is decomposed into water and carbon monoxide by the microorganisms that habit the ecosystem. The average laundry detergent takes a month for complete biodegrading after flowing into the ocean. However, in the case of “THE LAUNDRY DETERGENT” 94% is broken down in just one day, and is then fully decomposed by the 7th day.
The reason lies on the fact that our product contains only 1/9.5 of the surface-active agent that is found in the generic laundry detergent. It is often said that grease removal is less efficient with detergents with low amounts of surface-active agents. However, with the micronized particles of the agent deriving from the nanotechnology developed from preventing Oil Tanker spillages, we were able to achieve a high level of cleansing power with minimal amount of surface-active agents.
Only one teaspoon (5ml) of detergent is necessary per load. Using only a third of detergent required per cycle is another reason this product has lower environmental impact than the generic laundry detergent.
The pH neutral cleaner, can be used on a variety of fabrics including cotton, silk, wool, down, and even on rain gear made from waterproof fabric.
Due to its swift decomposition, the removed oil and grease will not re-aggregate to cause additional stains, while also maintaining clean and odorless sewage pipes.
By diluting “THE LAUNDRY DETERGENT” with water 1:4 in a spray bottle, the product becomes an all-purpose cleaner that can be used to clean bathtubs, sinks and toilets.
“THE LAUNDRY DETERGENT” is manufactured by Ganko Honpo based in Chigasaki City, Kanagawa prefecture.
“THE LAUNDRY DETERGENT” is a gentle laundry detergent of high quality that is mindful of the water that circulates our earth, starting from the household wastewater.
