Earlier this month, we dropped off a Drumi prototype with our Research Partner in Ontario. They are testing the Drumi’s cleaning efficiency and will help develop instructions and operating procedures to ensure you achieve the optimal results.
They are planning to test the effects of load size (i.e. normal and ½ mass of fabric/water ratio), detergent level (i.e. low & high, soap nuts and Tide) and temperature (i.e. 40C and ‘cold’).
The testing cloths used contain a variety of stain samples and a whiteness swatch to test for stain redisposition. An additional evaluation of water alone will be included to evaluate soap nuts performance as well as a common liquid detergent.
In addition, a separate bacterial removal test will also be performed. We look forward to updating you with their findings!
