Find your optimum combination with enzymes and get the desired effects right away.
ELIMINATING UNEARTHING & SHIPPING COSTS
Natural pumice stones can only be used up to 3 washes, after which the stones become too small for use due to erosion and new stones are needed. Thus manufacturers will use thousands of kg of pumice stones per day, constanlty removing pumice from nature. Shipping of the Stones is also a grave problem since textiles factories are usually not close to digging sites and the stones will be transported by land or sea depending on factory location.
Westex stones remove these unsustainable practices, our stones can be used up to 1000 washes, and thus, eliminate the need of constantly unearthing and transporting new pomice form volcanic areas.
Natural pumice stone will dissolve after 3 washes and transform into sand residues. With this traditional method factories require 70+ ltrs of water simply to eliminate sand residues from every washing machine. Multiplying this waste of water to millions of washing machines around the world and we quiclky get billions of gallons of water wasted with the natural pumice stone.
Westex Stones can be used for up to 6 months with no residues as the stones don’t dissolve over time. 6 months of life time for the Westex Stone makes it a great substitute for the natural pumice stone.
