In our never-ending war with germs, we tend to use any means necessary to thoroughly clean our home. Therefore, we rely on an array of dangerous cleaning products to do our dirty work for us. In an attempt to eliminate every trace of dust and bacteria, we use these harsh products that are not only harmful to our health but the environment as well. Eco-friendly industrial products, as well as those made from household ingredients, have numerous benefits over hazardous ones commonly used in every home. Here are some of them.

81kKK6TipQL._SL1500_

PATENTED AND INDEPENDENTLY PROVEN…There is no other non-detergent laundry technology in existence that has two United States Patents and has been proven in Independent Laboratory Testing to clean as well as chemical laundry detergent. This is truly different from the common laundry ball or washer ball products may have heard of. You have never seen, heard about or tried anything like it before!
SAFE AND GENTLE. BETTER FOR YOUR HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT…Safer For Babies and Children. Can help those with allergies or MCS multiple chemical sensitivity to detergent by keeping petrochemicals from absorbing into the skin and being breathed in from clothing all day long. Prevents chemicals from getting into the water supply and environment. POWERFUL & EFFECTIVE…Detergent-Free Cleaning Action. Economical, Environmentally Safe and Very Easy To Use.
LASTS FOR YEARS. COMES WITH A LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY AND AN UNCONDITIONAL 30-DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE… One package of two Laundry System units can be used over and over again for many years. No need to keep buying expensive $20 bottles of detergent every few weeks. Great for saving money and in drought areas because you can bypass the rinse cycle since there are no chemicals, saving 20-40 gallons of water per wash and the energy to run it!
EASY TO USE. Works in any kind of washing machine! Simply place the MLS units and your clothes in your washing machine and turn it on. For front loaders, put the MLS units in pants pockets. Though they are magnetic, they do not have to stick to the drum to work, and will work in front and top loading machines. Remember, the MLS replaces laundry detergent only. The use of pre wash spot-remover sprays, bleaches or additives such as fabric softeners can be used with the MLS.
HOW DOES IT WORK? The MLS System works under a unique means of water maintenance through direct application of magnetic force. The system assists the water to pull out the dirt, grease and odors from the fibers of your clothes without harmful chemicals that break down the fibers of your clothing. Water has long been known as the “universal solvent”. The MLS System incorporates powerful, specially calibrated magnetism to help alter the basic nature of water and increase its natural solvency.
