You hopefully already know all about the benefits of wearing magnetic insoles in your shoes. You probably don’t know about the benefits of having a pair of MagSteps in your washing machine though. This isn’t one of the uses listed in Nikken’s brochure, it comes by word of mouth.
Assuming that the drum in your washing machine is metal, you take a pair of magnetic insoles and stick them to the sides inside your washing machine. I like to keep them on opposite sides, across from each other. The water, detergent, and bleach aren’t going to hurt them. I don’t know how long they will last in there, but ours have been there for 4 years with no sign of wear.
But why put magnetic insoles in your washing machine?
Because they help to soften the water. Did you know that most of the chemicals in your laundry detergent are there to treat your water, not to wash your clothes? It’s true. So, with the insoles helping to condition the water, you will need less laundry detergent. Actually, when we put a pair of MagSteps in our washing machine we didn’t use any laundry detergent for about a month because there was so much laundry detergent left in our clothing from washing with the “correct” amount of detergent. If you try this, you will probably find the same thing.
So, the bottom line is that a pair of magnetic insoles in your washing machine will save you money in the long term because you will need maybe a quarter of the amount of laundry detergent that you currently use. This could even help people with sensitive skin because there is less detergent residue to react to.
