MIT finds a new cleaning solution
Water charged with electricity on site replaces chemicals at conference center
MIT’s Endicott House has replaced the hundreds of gallons of chemical products it uses annually with one cleaner it hopes will be less toxic and more economical - water. The water is charged with an electrical current, creating two chemical-free and nearly odorless cleaning solutions. Instead of using Windex, Ajax, and Spic ’n Span, which can be harmful in large doses, according to the Environmental Working Group, the Endicott House now uses two forms of electrolyzed water - hypochlorous acid and sodium hydroxide.
