TechnoFresh

TechnoFresh® is the high tech answer to the problems you have with your high tech HE front loading washing machine.

TechnoFresh® gasket cleaning and washer odor control eliminates the need to buy an expensive new washer because your machine is “hopelessly smelly and moldy” and other products haven’t worked.

TechnoFresh® works completely different from other products. Other products are shock treatments that require a separate shock load every month or so.

TechnoFresh® is a powder that is added to a few loads every week along with your detergent. It is not a separate shock treatment. You chose when and how much to use through the week. You are not forced to run an “emergency” shock because the smell exploded.

After you get control of the washer you will be able to leave damp laundry in the machine overnight again! 

Shock treatments try to clean the nasties out with harsh chemicals. A lot of times they don't work. TechnoFresh keeps the nasties  from growing in the first place. It always works! TechnoFresh® kills the mold, mildew and bacteria that grow in the machine so that they flush out of the machine naturally.

TechnoFresh® stays on the walls of the machine plumbing and continuously controls the mold and mildew. Shock treatments allow new growth and its contamination of the laundry between shocks. How smelly the machine and laundry get through the month depends on how well you time the shock treatments.

TechnoFresh® is different. It sanitizes the loads it is used in. Then it suppresses mold and mildew growth during the period of time between wash days.

TechnoFresh® is extremely cost effective. It is super concentrated - no fillers. A 2 lb bottle can last 6 months.

TechnoFresh® can be used with any detergent or laundry additive.

TechnoFresh® can be used with any fabric or water temp.

TechnoFresh® has no fragrance or scent oils. It works. It does not need perfume.

TechnoFresh® is safe for Septic Systems. No phosphates, nitrates, or chlorine.

TechnoFresh® can only be purchased online from this web site. This gives us national coverage and keeps the cost down.

The Claims:

TechnoFresh® is an improved formula of NuFresh laundry washer sanitizer / deodorizer that has been sold since Jan 2008.
 
#1    As with NuFresh, TechnoFresh® is guaranteed to get rid of the odor problems or you get your money back.

#2    But, unlike other products, TechnoFresh® will also clean and disinfect the slimy black mold on the door gasket too! TechnoFresh® will also help to keep it from coming back.

#3    Plus, TechnoFresh® will control the mystery black spots or smudges on dark clothes.

#4    And, TechnoFresh is a very effective sport wash/ soak.

No matter what you have tried in the past, you really should use TechnoFresh® at least once before you buy a new machine or replace the door gasket because you cannot get the smell or mold to go away. TechnoFresh®  has saved a lot of people the cost of a new washer or door gasket replacement over the years.


The Story :
 

Many new, High Efficiency (HE), front loading clothes washing machines develop odors due to black mold, fungus, mildew and bacteria slime on the internal plumbing and door gasket. The  growth is the source of diaper rash, jock itch and other itching problems that seem to come and go for no particular reason. These nasties are also the cause of smelly wet towels, sour T-shirts and other clothes that smell after being used or worn for a short time. Sometimes the machine itself smells so bad the entire house is affected.

If you only do a few loads of laundry a week, there are days where the  washing machine just sits. The water that is left standing in the machine has  plenty of time to grow black mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria slime on the detergent residue left on the plumbing. This is called a biofilm because it is a mixture of a lot of organisms. If a machine is used a lot, the biofilm does not have much time to grow and can be flushed out before the odors become a problem. But that does not always happen. If the organisms do not get flushed out, they are transferred to your laundry and then the odor blooms after the laundry gets damp again with sweat or just humidity.

Some people have machines that smell and others have clothes that smell. In either case, there are nasties of some kind in the machine that are getting transferred to the laundry. The odor just shows up in different locations. It is also very common for the gasket to have a range of mold problems while the machine does not have odor issues.

Every case is unique.

Everyone uses different machines, different detergents and softeners, different amounts of them, different kinds of water, different kinds of soils, different washing schedules and on and on...

That is why the ideas that work for others don't work for you! This site explains all these issues.

We also sell a product called TechnoFresh® that solves all these issues for everyone.

Some people think TechnoFresh® is magic.

It is not. It is science.


The Problem:

Until TechnoFresh
® came along, the only method of controlling laundry odor and rashes caused by the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria slime in the washing machine were monthly shock treatments of various kinds (Affresh, Smelly Washer, etc.). These shock treatments often fail to remove all the biofilm growth and detergent build up in the machine. This failure to completely clean the machine allows biofilm growth and odor to come back quickly after a shock treatment.

The growth return is exponential through time. The shock treatment may (seem to) clean the machine to start. The smell goes away. For about 7- 10 days or so, the smell is gone from the machine and laundry. Success!  For the next  7-10 days or so, the laundry starts to smell a little. The next 7-10 days the mold, mildew and bacteria slime are back and the machine smells and the laundry is back to to smelling like mildew. A week or so after that you get knocked back on your butt when you open the door. (No, really, I once was hit with a blast so foul I jumped back by reflex and almost crushed the dog. That is when the need for something that actually worked to control odor occurred to me)

The problem is that the growth explodes in the last part of the month so it can be difficult to time the next shock treatment. How infested the machine and laundry get through the month depends on how well you time the shock treatments. Even if you time things well, you still are getting some mold and mildew residue on clothes, sheets and diapers all through the month. Some loads have more mold and fungus residue on them than other loads. That is why the problem seems to come and go in a random manner for no reason. Random rashes and itching are very common. You’re not crazy. It is really happening! 

You can run shock treatments every week or two to try to stay ahead of the growth curve. But, that is a lot of trouble and can get expensive. And, you have to remember to do it.

TechnoFresh® is different. It sanitizes the load it is used in. Then it continuously suppresses growth during the period of time between wash days. Continued use as needed refreshes the TechnoFresh®  in the buildup of detergent. The biofilm is under control and the odor does not come back. It is the simple solution.

You must continue to use detergent and other additives that you are currently using to get the cleaning effect of the enzymes and other trick cleaning chemicals. But you must never use more than two TABLESPOONFUL of any liquid detergent.  The very limited amount of water used in HE machines requires a minimum amount of detergent. Use only enough to cover the bottom of the measuring cup cap from the detergent bottle. The measuring marks on the cap are there to get you to use a lot of their super expensive detergent. You get the odor problem if you do.

A very little amount of water, a very little amount of detergent , and a very, very little amount of TechnoFresh® should end up returning washday to a sure thing again.   Read the site for all the details.


The Sales Pitch:

I am a retired chemical engineer that has spent more than 35 years supporting cleaning processes of all kinds. I created TechnoFresh  because none of the other methods worked for me. I was always forgetting to do the shock treatment. Or, I ran the shock treatment and it did not work that well. So, I came  up with a material combination that did work in my situation. It is easy to use and it keeps the biofilm growth and odor under control continuously.

Now that I have something that works really well, I decided  to offer it on the internets through this web site. I also decided to apply for a patent. Because... well... it pretty much always works.

That is why TechnoFresh® is unconditionally guaranteed to work or you get your money back.

The Options:

If you are having odor problems you may want to try the basic shock treatment methods first. We try to explain how all the different shock treatment methods work so you can make an informed choice. A lot of times these methods do not work all that well.

But, we also believe we have--

The Best Answer:

If you are blessed with a high tech, high efficiency, high cost clothes washer, and the other methods don't work ---

Or, you just want to be confident that the black mold and biofilm contamination is under continuous control ---

You will need to move up to a better, more effective method.... Just as I needed to.

That better, more effective method is TechnoFresh®

TechnoFresh® works in a completely different manner from the shock cleaning methods

Shock cleaning can work

TechnoFresh® is Guaranteed to work.

The Wrap Up:

TechnoFresh® is easy and convenient to use. You put a small amount of TechnoFresh® into the dispenser on top of your regular detergent.  Or put it directly into the drum so it fall into the holes in the drum before adding the laundry.

Usually TechnoFresh® is used in one or two loads every few laundry days through the week to help control odors continuously. The actual amount will be greater until you get control of the machine. Then it will drop off to the lesser amount you need to sustain the control.

I think you will probably want to try TechnoFresh® after you wash and dry and fold and put away a few loads of laundry ---- only to find out the mildew smell returned the first time you use a towel or wear a T-shirt because your regular shock treatment failed you.

Stop wondering if the laundry load will smell this time.

Rewashing is time consuming --be smart.

How Does TechnoFresh Work?

TechnoFresh® is a mixture of salts that dissolve easily in water. This TechnoFresh®/water solution is then mixed in the machine with any detergent  product you choose to use

When TechnoFresh® and the detergent are deposited on the  plumbing together, the TechnoFresh® forms a barrier to growth on  the detergent film.

This is the continuous control part of the process.

Think of it as: The soap sticks to the plumbing and the TechnoFresh® sticks to the soap ... and forms a barrier.

What is the TechnoFresh® barrier made of?

TechnoFresh® is made of chemicals that are harmful to the nasties but still safe for people to use regularly in a washing machine.

TechnoFresh® contains materials that are used in commercial pickling and  canning to retard spoilage, fungus suppression in makeup, and sterilizing of wounds. All  these materials are on the FDA Generally Accepted as Safe (GRAS) list. These chemicals are approved for consumption in small quantities so washing with them presents minimal hazard.

Phase 0 Start of Wash Cycle Web

At the start of the wash cycle there is a detergent film on the walls of the plumbing with mold, mildew and bacteria growing on it.

This biofilm has been growing because it has been covered by a water film since the last time you ran the wash.

This mold, mildew and bacteria is where the odor comes from.

bluebar
Phase 1 Growth and diffusion

In the first minute or two of the wash cycle TechnoFresh dissolves before the detergent does and attacks the mold, mildew, and bacteria directly.

bluebar
phase 2 Growth and deposition

After the detergent dissolves, some of it deposits on the walls of the plumbing.

As it always will.

This detergent goo is mixed with TechnoFresh now.

The TechnoFresh will contaminate the film so that nothing will grow on it.

Phase 3 wash cycle

The wash cycle continues as normal with a small amount of TechnoFresh in the water to help deodorize the laundry itself.

TechnoFresh® is different. It is not a shock. It suppresses mold and mildew growth during the period of time between wash days because it is mixed with the new detergent every time it is used. Think of it like: The detergent and biofilm stick to the plumbing and the TechnoFresh sticks to the detergent and biofilm. This works so well that only a few loads a week need TechnoFresh. 

Other products are shock treatments that attempt to remove the detergent and biofilm build up on the plumbing. They require a separate cleaning wash cycle every month or so. They don’t always work.

TechnoFresh® on the other hand, kills the mold, mildew and bacteria growing in the machine so that they flush out of the machine naturally and do not stick to your laundry. Additionally, after the wash cycle it helps to keep the growth from coming back.   If you follow instructions, Technofresh always works

TechnoFresh® stays on the walls of the machine plumbing and week-after-week suppresses the mold and mildew. Shock treatments allow new growth and its contamination of the laundry between shocks. How smelly the machine and laundry get through the month depends on how well you time the shock treatments.

TechnoFresh® is cost effective. It is super concentrated - no fillers. We suggest one ounce of TechnoFresh in every load to make sure you get control. But, most people use half an ounce a few times a week and are happy with the results.

TechnoFresh® can be used with any detergent or laundry additive. Those products contain the special chemicals and enzymes that are needed for cleaning.

TechnoFresh can be used with aerobic septic system digesters, as long as the discharge does not go to a landscaping pond. The borax that is used as the carrier for the active ingredients contains boron.  It is approximately the same amount of boron if you used 20 mule team detergent to wash the load. It is a really small amount but it will accumulate over time in the pond. And, pond organisms are extra susceptible to the boron.

Otherwise, I have not had any negative feedback regarding the use of these digesters.
