Ionic Clean from Homeright

Updated on May 31, 2010

I got a chance to try out the Ionic Clean, and I was already skeptical before I even took it out of the box.  The idea that I could clean with “de-ionizing technology” really meant nothing to me since I had no idea what de-ionized water is in the first place.  It reminds me of when laundry detergents advertise that they have some new chemical in it, as if you already know what the chemical is. 

Just to set the record straight, the company states that the Ionic clean “uses de-ionizing (DI) technology to create purified water that has unique cleaning qualities. As water flows through the Ionic Clean, ionic exchange occurs that removes minerals and impurities from the water”.  In other words, it can make whatever you are cleaning with this product cleaner. 

Needless to say, my curiosity was piqued.  So after I took it out, it was a simple matter of attaching it to my hose.  There is a plug at the bottom that must be switched out with a male connector, and a female connector attaches to the other end of the hose.  It’s made so the hose can easily be snapped in and out to the tank easily. 

From there, it is about attaching the big stick with the brush on it to the twenty feet of blue hose that it comes with.  When you get the hose on, you can switch it from OFF to the de-ionized water, or DI.  I can only guess that what comes out of the brush has gone through a filter and is purified.  (By the way, even though it is “purified” it doesn’t recommend that you drink it.)

The DI water looked like could have been soap, but lacked in suds.  After applying a layer of it on my car, I switched to RINSE on the tank.  I took off the brush to see if I could get a good spray on the thing, but it was about the equivalent of my hose without putting my thumb on the nozzle, if you see what I mean. 

So you’re probably wondering how it did.  The answer would be: not half bad.  Ionic Clean advertises “spot-free, streak-free cleaning with no drying required”.  However, I saw quite a bit of spots.  However, the instructions warned that applying soap when washing with the Ionic Clean might be a good idea.  I mean, I wasn’t able to clean off all the bird droppings with the Ionic Clean alone. 

I have to admit that carrying around the tank with the twenty-foot hose was burdensome.  I wish there was a backpack with it, but I would probably look like one of the Ghostbusters with the positive slime pack. 

You should be able to get the Ionic Clean for about $249 from the website.  I’ll let you decide if it is worth it for that price.
