    Look at all the filthy perverts rushing in here.

    In fact they are a set of three plastic balls with pellets inside which the manufacturer
    claims will ionize the water in your washing and are to be used in lieu of detergent.

    Anybody have real-life experience with this product? The claims for this product, that
    has been on the market for quite a few years, do seem like a load of, well, balls.


    Youth is the first victim of war - the first fruit of peace.
    It takes 20 years or more of peace to make a man;
    it takes only 20 seconds of war to destroy him.

    They look like alien spacecraft.

    I thought Bounce had a product similar to that a while ago. You put the detergent in the ball and it releases it in the wash. But it didn't ionize the water.

    holy cow! its the Jupiter Masterpiece Ionising Unit.

    Ever since the 1960s, Japanese scientists have been redefining what good water means. Today, if you ask any of an estimated 300,000 Japanese how they spell good water, they'll tell you it's Ionised water because they use it in their homes every day. Ionisers are a new water technology for filtering and enhancing the quality of water by making the size of water molecules smaller. It's already a $700 million a year industry in Japan and it is now being introduced to the U.S. and England via the Jupiter Masterpiece Ionising Unit.

    The Masterpiece unit is hooked up to a faucet, and uses a carbon-activated filter to remove impurities from the water (including chlorine and trihalomethanines). Via an electrode chamber a small electrical charge is applied to the water. This then separates the water into two types of water – Acid and Alkaline. The acidic water (with positive ions) useful for topical external uses, is delivered out of one tube (usually drain) and the alkaline water (with negative ions) perfect for drinking is delivered via the chromium tube. The unit makes this separation at the rate of one gallon per minute.

    The applications of the acidic portion of the Masterpiece Ionised water are numerous and quite surprising. According to the research and based on early reports from African and South American users, acidic water acts as a "super-oxidant" to disinfect and sterilize surfaces, skin, wounds, even surgical instruments. It can kill bacteria and viruses; it can promote the healing of acne, eczema, wounds, sore throats, and blisters and can improve skin quality used in the shower as an after rinse. When used on foods, it can retard spoilage or act as a bacterial cleanser for meats; Dentists can also use it to sterilize the mouth during dental procedures. You can even use it to brush your teeth and as a mouthwash after (please rinse with alkaline water after an acid mouth wash).

    According to Hidemistu Hayashi, M.D., one of Japan's foremost water researchers, alkaline water can act as a powerful antioxidant in the body, destroying harmful free radicals, just as do vitamins A, C, and E, which are also antioxidants.

    Although the reports are still, strictly speaking, anecdotal, Dr. Hayashi reports that he and his colleagues have seen improvements in diabetes, constipation, ulcers, blood pressure, allergies, circulation, migraines, obesity, osteoporosis, and menstrual irregularities after drinking Ionised Alkaline water every day for several months. The use of Alkaline water as a preventive medicine is reportedly expanding in Japanese clinics and hospitals.

    The water tastes unusually smooth and soft, and due to its high concentration of negative ions (typical of pure mountain springs), can be refreshing as it is "oxygen rich".

    ps: never ionised my laundry

    pss(pps?):wonder if i can find an ionised carwash on the web

    Which atom are you ionizing.....I though ionized oxygens are deadly free-radicals in our body.

    oxygen itself is a poison. A billion years ago it kiled 99.98% of life on earth and made the rocks themselves burn.
