The Oxidize It Detergent-Less Laundry Solution is the laundry system that pays for itself! How much will you save every year with Oxidize It? In short, you could save enough in a single year to pay for the unit. In its estimated life span of 10 years (or 25,000 cycles) you could potentially save up to $10,000! Below is a breakdown of how you will save annually. These calculations are based on current price averages and the usage of detergent, bleach, fabric softener and electricity for the average family of four.

Please Note: This is a mathematical equation to figure out what your washing machine is costing you on average. This is how you can calculate how much your laundry really costs you. This equation clearly varies by frequency of laundry, the washing machine itself and the area you live in but this gives a good average.

## Dollars Spent To Heat Water (Electronically)

**We have done our scientific studies in American statistics for the most accurate data. We have then converted the final dollars to Canadian Dollars below to correctly reflect what you will save. *

**We found on average a washing machine uses 18 gallons of water per wash cycle and that on average there are only 2 cycles per load equaling out to 36 gallons of water per load of laundry that are done. **

We know that your average water inlet temperature is 77 Degrees Fahrenheit. The hottest watter allowed in most homes is typically 120 Degrees Fahrenheit. So, if we did a rise between the two different temperatures it would be approximately 43 Degrees Fahrenheit that we are increasing per load.

We also know that it takes approximately 8.34 BTU’s to heat 1 Gallon of Water by 1 Degree Fahrenheit.

The Formula is as Follows: (1 Degree Celsius x 8.34 BTU’s x (120-77) = Amount of BTU’s per gallon of laundry.

This equates to 358.62 BTU’s per gallon to simply heat the water going into an average washing machine. We are attempting to heat 36 gallons of water per load of laundry. Multiply the two and you get a total of 12,910.32 BTU’s used per average load of laundry. The conversion back to Kilowatt Hours equates to 3.784 KWH per load of laundry. This varies of course with the type of washing machine you have as stated earlier.

- An average KWH cost, which varies by location, we used the state of Maryland, which is 13.7 cents.
- (13.7ȼ x 3.784 KWH per load) = .51 cents per load of laundry just in heating cost
- We also averaged a family of 4 completing 480 loads per year. (.51 cents per load x 480 loads) =

A total annual Savings in energy cost alone, an average of $330.48 USD = $441.76 CAD

## Dollars Spent On Laundry Detergent

Tide Total Care Laundry Detergent – 50 oz. bottle says it does 32 loads per container: 480 Loads per year ÷ 32 loads per container = 15 containers of tide total care laundry detergent. Each 50 oz. bottle costs $26.86.

Totaling $404.79 USD spent in laundry detergent alone per year. This equates to $541.08 CAD.

## Dollars Spent On Bleach

Of the 9 loads of laundry per week – 3 will use bleach 3 x 52 = 156 loads per year. 8 oz. (1 cup) of bleach per load, 156 loads x 8 oz. = 1,248 oz. Clorox Bleach comes in 96 oz. containers, 1,248 oz. ÷ 96 = 13 containers per year. Clorox Bleach costs $ 8.18 per container 13 x $8.18= $106.35. So …

Overall, total dollars spent in laundry bleach per year – $106.35 USD = $142.16 CAD equivalent.

## Dollars Spent On Fabric Softener

480 loads per year Downy Fabric Softener-34 oz. does 40 loads per container 480 ÷ 40 = 12 containers. Downy Fabric Softener costs $ 5.79 per container 12 x $ 5.79 = $ 69.49.

Total dollars spent in laundry fabric softener per year – $ 69.49 USD = $92.88 CAD Equivalent.

Lets Now add the cost of using Dryer Sheets. Based on using 2 dryer sheets per average load, 240 Bounce Dryer sheets cost $12.06. 240 divided by 2 = 120 Loads. 480 loads per year divided by 120 loads per box= 4 boxes of dryer sheets. $12.06 times 4 boxes = $48.27.

Total Dollars spent in laundry dryer sheets per year – $48.27 USD = $64.52 CAD Equivalent.
