The Abecs system for laundering microfibre cloths and mops launched by Electrolux does away the risk of bacteria re-growth in the cloths. This not only extends the life of cloths and mops, but also saves energy. Abecs works via a positive charge in the final rinse cycle when laundering mops and cloths.
Most bacteria have a negative charge, but the positive charge fed into the rinse cycle in this system render the bacteria physically immobile. Once trapped inside the cloth, the system uses a mild disinfectant to kill them. This is particularly suitable for facilities management companies and healthcare institutions.
