Scientists at the University of Warwick in England have discovered that putting small diamonds, just 5 nanometers big, in laundry detergent can give you even cleaner laundry. The diamond laundry detergent not only gets the laundry cleaner, but also works in colder water then traditional detergent.
“We found that the five nanometer diamonds changed the way detergents behaved at 25 degrees centigrade (77 degrees Fahrenheit), doubling the amount of fat removed,” Andrew Marsh, a chemist at the University of Warwick in England, said. “Even at temperatures as low as 15 degrees centigrade (59 degrees F), otherwise hard-to-remove fat could be solubilized from a test surface.”
So next time you go to buy laundry detergent take a quick look at the ingredients for diamonds or crystalized carbon and you may just be getting your whites sparkling white.
