Hexawash is hypoallergenic, meaning it contains no nasties that cause itchy skin and allergic reaction
How does it work ?
Hexawash is filled with small magnesium pellets, which when mixed with water, create hydrogen gas and magnesium hydroxide. This reaction results in an alkaline solution of around pH 10.5 in your washing machine. Negative hydorxide ions reduce the surface tension of the water, making it easier for dirt and oil to breakdown and be washed away. Magnesium cleans your clothes as well as any detergent, whilst being kind to our waterways and planet.
How do I know when Hexawash has come to the end of its life ?
By wheiging it. A Hexawash weighs around 120 g. While washing hundreds of loads, the magnesium gradually dissolves until there is too little to effectively clean your clothes. If it weighs less than 80g, it is time to buy a new one.
How to use it
- Pop your hexawash in your washing machine with your dirty clothes and wash as usual.
- Peg your hexawash out to dry with your clean clothes
- it is ready to use it again
- For very dirty clothes soak it with the clothes before washing
