Make Your Own Sterilizing Fluid with Ruhens Electrolyser

Ruhens has announced a new product, the WCE-200 Water Electrolyser, a home sterilizer that is capable of removing 99% germs and bacteria, including the coronavirus that causes the Corona Virus Disease 19 (COVID-19).

Let us be honest. With the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and the vaccine still some time away, it is a daily risk to be infected by the virus from various sources.

Most alcohol sanitizer (except this) caused your hands to lose the moisture and create another kind of issue. And they cannot be used everywhere. Non-alcohol types are available but what if you can make your own?

The Ruhens Electrolyser is capable of producing the electrolyzed water that is capable of killing the virus with just water and salt (both easily available). It is environmentally friendly and you can even use it on furniture, toys and etc.

In just minutes, you can get fresh sterilizing fluid that is able to protect you. I think I am going to get one for my home.

The Ruhens Electrolyser is available at Ruhens’ showroom at S$280. It comes only in white.

A Powerful Cleaning Solution

Ruhens’ Electrolyser taps on the electrolysis process, where water containing salt is subjected to an electrical current to produce electrolyzed water which is considered to be an effective sanitization agent[3] which consists of two types of solutions; Hypochlorous Acid and Sodium Hydroxide[4]. The two solutions produced by electrolysis are highly effective in sanitizing and cleaning while being eco-friendly and safe for use. The Electrolyser brings users the benefits of electrolyzed water in a quick and user-friendly sleek device that can easily be used at home.

With the Electrolyser, electrolyzed water can be easily generated, bottled in small bottles and used as hand sanitizers. Not just a substitute for the common, chemical sanitizers, hypochlorous acid eliminates different types of bacteria, germs, fungi[5]. Safe for everyone to use, this sanitizing liquid is safe even for babies as the water does not contain alcohol.

A useful cleaning agent for the home, the electrolyzed water can be used to clean hard surfaces such as floors, doors, windows, tables, and other furniture. Fabrics, clothes and shoes can be easily sanitized with a spritz of electrolysed water. Even items that are difficult to wash, like carpets and sofas, can be sanitized and easily kept clean.

The electrolyzed water also has deodorizing properties to keep the house smelling fresh by eliminating odours. It can be used to remove bad odours[6] in fridges, shoe cabinets, shelves, washroom and many more. It can also be used to clean cooking ingredients such as remove pesticides[7] from fruits and vegetables[8].

Caring For Your Loved Ones And The Environment

Ruhens had environmental sustainability as the core to the creation of its Electrolyser. Many cleaning agents and sanitizers in the market rely heavily on chemicals during manufacturing and production, and one-use products contribute even further to landfills and waste.

The Ruhens’ Electrolyser can be repeatedly used to create as many batches of electrolyzed water as needed for the home and family. As the by-product of the electrolysis process is purely electrolyzed water, no extra waste liquids or harsh chemicals are released into the environment through usage.

After every batch of electrolyzed water is completed, the Electrolyser automatically turns itself off after 60 seconds. This helps with electricity savings as well!

Quick and User-Friendly

Ruhens Electrolyser is easy-to-use, quick, and convenient. Each batch of electrolyzed water takes only 1 – 3 minutes to be completed. The making process is as simple as filling the Electrolyser with water and adding refined salt after doing so. The Electrolyser comes with two levels of sterilization; low and high. The High mode creates electrolyzed water that can be used to sanitise hands, while the Low mode’s yield can clean items in the home such as furniture. Each batch of active electrolyzed water can be kept for up 24 hours.

The Electrolyser retails at $280 and available at Ruhens’ showroom.
