“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” a song famously preformed by the late Marilyn Monroe. For many ladies, we agree with Monroe’s sentiments. Would you believe that diamonds could be your laundry’s best friend? According to a recent UK study, washing your clothes with diamonds can make your laundry load cleaner and more ecofriendly. Bling Bling!
Before letting your jaw drop to the ground with disbelief on who would actually buy diamonds to wash clothes – hear me out.
The research conducted by University of Warwick discovered that diamonds have a better cleaning power than regular detergents. However, they aren’t referring to the diamonds you’ll see at Tiffany’s or Spence. The diamonds referred in the study is called ‘nanodiamonds,’ pieces of carbon less than ten-thousandths the diameter of a human hair, can help to loosen crystalized fat from surfaces.
The researchers wanted discover a solution to help consumers to not being limited and rely on using too much hot water to wash their clothes. Even though washing with cold water is more environmentally friendly, as it takes up less energy than hot water, it hasn’t always been effective on cleaning a load of laundry.
Lead chemist, Dr Andrew Marsh, states “we found that the 5 nano-meter diamonds changed the way detergents behaved at 25 degrees centigrade, doubling the amount of fat removed when using one particular commercial detergent molecule. Even at temperatures as low as 15 degrees centigrade, otherwise hard-to-remove fat could be solubilized from a test surface.” Essentially, a small dose of nanodiamonds and cold water can help to clean your dirty clothes.
Price? It’s fair to naturally believe that only the billionaires of the world would be the ones to consider this as their official cleaning product. DVICE discovered that you could buy a gram of nanodiamonds for around $24. I can’t tell if that’s affordable or not (overall). But it depends on how often you wash your clothes and how much you’ll be saving off the energy bill.
I’m still intrigued that clothes could be glowing in diamonds. I guess we could say, diamonds is your laundry's new best friend! Ha! In the meantime, see below on the latest laundry pairs to keep your clothes super clean.
