Green Your Dishwashing Machine

Green Your Dishwashing Machine

As we have already reported, using a dishwasher to clean your dishes is more eco-friendly than washing by hand. But so many Enagic®members don’t enjoy using synthetic chemicals to get their favorite dishes and flatware clean.

Thankfully, you can don’t have to resort to harsh, unnatural ingredients to get your dishes sparkling clean. Using some basic items in your pantry, you can make your own Homemade Dishwasher Detergent:

Homemade Dishwasher Detergent
1 cup washing soda
1 cup Borax (ONLY if you have well water)
2 Tablespoons sea salt

Thoroughly mix together and keep in an air-tight container. Add 1 to 2 Tablespoon of the mixture to each load. If your dishes are cloudy, add a little vinegar or a small drop of Strong Kangen Water Dish Soap to the rinse cycle to reduce cloudiness.

…Or wash with Strong Kangen Water
If you don’t own an Energy Star dishwasher, or just prefer to wash your dishes the old fashioned way, Strong Kangen Water can help! Strong Kangen Water is a powerful cleaner, with extra strength absorption qualities to help fight tough grease and grime from your dishes.

Strong Kangen Water can help you save on your water bill. It takes a quarter of the usual amount of water to rinse off Strong Kangen Water, as opposed to chemical detergents. This is a wonderful environmentally-friendly and healthy decision, as both the Earth and your body will thank you for reducing the amount of chemicals in your home!

Keep your dishes clean the green way, and let your mulit-purpose Enagic® water ionizing machine help make your home chemical-free!

Child Dehydration: How You Can Help with Kangen Water®

America’s Dehydrated Youth
If you think you should only hydrate for your own benefit, think again! America’s children are suffering from dehydration, and they need positive role models to lead them to healthier choices.

According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, only 15 to 60 percent of boys, and 10 to 54 percent of girls (depending on their age) drink the bare minimum amount of water recommended by the U.S. Institute of Medicine1.

Sugary drink for lunch

Sugary drink for lunch

So what are they drinking instead of water? A recent study at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health found that 84% of children and teens drink at least one sugar-sweetened beverage every day2. The most popular sugary drink is – no shock here – soda, followed by fruit punches, fruit drinks, and sports drinks2.

The excessive consumption of these unhealthy drinks can lead to a variety of issues, including childhood obesity, energy imbalance, and high acidity2.

Our children need to stay properly hydrated for optimal health. Even slight dehydration can affect physiological functioning, mental development, and cognitive performance1. What action can we all take to break America’s youth from their addiction to sugar?

The Change Starts with You!
No parent or child is going to listen to the advice of someone who isn’t staying hydrated himself. Make sure you’re consuming the recommended 2 to 3 liters of Kangen Water® every day. Educate yourself about the importance of staying balanced and hydrated, and feel comfortable talking to parents and children about the necessity of drinking plenty of water every day, instead of unhealthy sweetened beverages.

So when you want to set a good example for others on how to live a healthy life, choose to hydrate with Kangen Water®!

Make Your Kangen Water® a “Trenta”

What are you drinking?The Tremendous Trenta
If you have been following the news buzz the last few days, you probably heard that due to overwhelming customer feedback, Starbucks will be introducing a new fourth size – the “Trenta.” This 31-ounce giant will be specifically for their iced coffees, iced teas, and iced tea lemonades. According to the National Post 1, the Trenta is actually bigger than your stomach! While most of us have a 900 ml capacity in our stomachs, the Trenta is a whopping 916 ml! This super-collosal beverage has the equivalent caffeine of 4 cups of coffee. Imagine over-flowing your stomach with the caffeine and sugar found in most of these iced drinks!

Make It Kangen Water®
At Enagic®, we encourage every person to consume the healthy recommended 1.5 to 2 liters of water a day. So if you fill a “Trenta” with Kangen Water®, you’re almost there! Although we suggest you choose a reusable 1 liter Enagic® water bottle instead2. No matter which container you use, there is no denying that clean, alkaline Kangen Water® is a better choice for optimal hydration than any caffeinated or sugary beverage!

Don’t get sucked into the hype of the same unhealthy beverage in a larger package. Remember that your Kangen Water® can help you sustain a healthy body with its powerful anti-oxidants and alkalinity that will help keep your body’s pH level balanced. There is no substitute for the always refreshing and healthy Kangen Water®.
