This Eco laundry ball contains natures own natural antibacterial silver ions, keeping your laundry fresh, clean and free from body odour. The antibacterial activity of silver has long been known and has found a variety of applications because its toxicity to human cells is considerably lower than to bacteria. The most widely documented uses are prophylactic treatment of burns and water disinfection. *Silver is not toxic to humans.
Silver nano-particles are an effective tool for killing disease-causing bacteria. ... Scientists have long known that silver ions, which flow from nanoparticles when oxidized, are deadly to bacteria. Silver nanoparticles are used just about everywhere, including in cosmetics, socks, food containers, detergents, sprays and a wide range of other products to stop the spread of germs.
Washing at low temperatures is better for clothes and as most textiles prefer and last longer this way, the downside is that it can still allow bacteria to grow and reproduce. Fragranced fabric softeners and detergents will cover up the smell, bacteria though, will be more than likely still present in your laundry. This can lead to body odour and other smells developing on your clothing within a short time and remaining impregnated into the clothing.
* The Bluemagicball tackles this problem. Complimenting your normal wash, this eco-friendly washing ball releases natural silver ions into the water, distributing them throughout your wash. The washed laundry remains impregnated with silver for up to ten weeks or so and helps to a certain degree to prevent body odour for a day or two!
