And then Eureka! One of my favorite talk show hosts, Ellen DeGeneres featured this product on her show, and I thought it was pure genius. I have had over a month now to test out the Activeion Pro.
How does the Activeion technology work?
The Activeion hand-held sprayer transforms tap water into a powerful cleaner that works as well as or better than other general-purpose, commercial chemical and "green" cleaning products. Using an advanced technology, the Activeion hand-held sprayer is a general-purpose, daily-use cleaner that can be used on both hard (i.e., marble/granite and stainless steel) and soft surfaces (i.e., carpet and clothing), freeing consumers and professionals from harmful chemicals and toxins. The versatility of the product allows the user to replace many of today's most common daily-use cleaners.
1. Charging: When the trigger is pressed, the water flows through a water cell that applies a slight electrical charge to the tap water.
2. Transforming: Next, the water passes through an ion exchange membrane where the activated water is separated into an oxygenated mixture of positively and negatively charged nano-bubbles.
3. Cleaning: When applied, the transformed, activated water helps lift the dirt from the surface like a magnet, enabling it to be wiped away. The activated water returns to its natural state after 30-45 seconds.
My Experiences with the Product:
Follow The Instructions
Fill the reservior with cool tap water only.
Do not fill with hot water.
Do not add anything to the tap water.
Do not fill while the unit is charging, and never, ever add chemicals.
Do The Math
How much do you spend monthly on chemical cleaners? Factor in every cleaner you use, floors, appliances, windows etc. Now multiply that number by 12! That is how much you will save per year using the ActiveIon Pro. Over the cost of it's lifetime not only is it saving you money, you are also ridding your home of dangerous chemicals, ridding your environment of those chemicals, and less plastics and overall product waste to pollute the environment. Now THAT my friends, is living green.
