6- The Sidney Herald, Sidney, Mont., Wednesday, October 13, 1971  NEWN NOTEN" h&apos;onn l'our ounty i,ton.won Agent By Ellis E. Williams and Sylvia Westlake Montana State University, Bozeman Cooperative Extension Service "NO PHOSPHATE" HAZARDS Our preliminary testing of many of the brands of no-phos- phate detergents has shownthat they produce undesirable re- suits to clothes and washers. It will be to your interest to be aware of the problems they can cause. If you complain, your salesmen and your servicemen should know that the fault is not with the washer. The well-known phosphate de- tergents, to which we have be- come aceustned, have the abil: ity of holding the hardness min- erals of the water and of the soil in suspension until the water is spun out of the washer. These detergents rinse out easily and perform their washiog fmctims with a minimum of alkalinity so they are not harmful to wash- ers. Many of the new "no-phos- phate" detergents contain so- dium carbonates which precipi- tate or settle out the minerals and the soil but they are still in the water, and will settle back on the clothes and the washer. This can cause the following problems which will increase with harder water: PROBLEM AREAS A visible coating on dark colored clothes which resem- bles fading. A build-up in tle c lethe s which causes them to be harsh and stiff. Breakage of threadswhichwe believe is caused by this build- up which makes the threads brit- tle. A grit or deposit on clothes, tub and other washer parts. A dull coating on the washer tub. This won't harm the stain- less steel but it won't have its familiar shine, and a black sub- stance may be wiped off. ALKALINE PROBLEMS The no-phosphate detergents are very alkaline which causes the following problems: Fading of colors of the clothes. Yellowing of white clothes. Potential harm to the porce- lain of the tubs. Deterioration of metal parts other than stainless steel. There may be other problems which we don't know about. Many washer companies are making continued improve- ments to protect the parts of the washer which are vulner- able to these new detergents. The polypropylene agitator and the irridized treatment of the pump will afford protection. More changes are to come. If you as customers insist on using these products, make every effort to remove the agi- tator frequently to wash, rinse and dry the parts under the agi- tator. The washing ability of many of these detergents, particu. Iarly over a period of time, is not up to industry standards. Soil removal is often a matter of personal standards andisnot harmful but you should be aware of this. The most serious problem of all with these detergents is the health hazard. Be aware andob- serve the cautionary warnings on the packages. The products are toxic and must be kept out of the reach of small inquisi- tive children. A report from the Surgeon General of the U. S. indicates that serious permanent injury can result if some of these de- tergents are accidentally swal- lowed. The May 21 issue of Life magazine tells about the harm- ful effects of these products to the eyes and skin. As yet, no one knows what harm thesepro- ducts will cause wbendischarg- ed into the waters in quantity. It is still recommended that use of phosphate detergents in the amount needed for good washing results according to the water hardness and soil of each individual situation be con- tinued.
