Homeopathic laundry detergent?!

Are there no depths to which snake oil salesmen won’t sink to in marketing useless, fraudulent products to the American public?

Bountiful Crystals is a cutting-edge revolution in laundry detergent science. Now, with one bottle of our product, you’ll never need to buy laundry detergent ever again! Here’s how it works. Bountiful Crystals is a specially formulated crystal-based detergent designed to imbue water with its cleansing patterns. Simply use Bountiful Crystals as you would any other laundry detergent, but when the bottle reaches half empty, top it up with distilled water, shake vigorously ten times, and continue using it as normal! This process is called dynamization. The cleansing potential of Bountiful Crystals will never falter, no matter how many dynamizations are performed!

Bountiful Crystals brings the proven scientific power of homeopathy into a novel area of your life: home cleaning! And it’s better than mainstream laundry detergent, too. Whereas mainstream laundry detergents have harsh detergents and bleaches in them known to cause skin irritation and cancer, our Bountiful Crystals product only stores the patterns of the clothes-cleansing molecules in the water after repeated dynamizations. All of the same cleaning power with none of the skin irritation — or cancer!

The best thing is, our Bountiful Crystals laundry detergent is available for the low, low price of only $99.99! (Or four installments of $33.33!) Think of it as an investment. It’s the last laundry detergent you’ll ever need to buy, and you’ll save money over mainstream detergents within a year. So what are you waiting for? Get free of the tyranny of the leading laundry detergent manufacturers today, with Bountiful Crystals!

    Since you didn’t include a link, I googled it, and your blog, stunningly, is the top and only relevant link. Was this spam, or something you made up? Because I would have made the same joke.

    It’d be interesting if someone (not me: I have better things to do) were to test this stuff to see how it compares to a) water, and b) ordinary detergents.

    Obviously, like you, I would expect it to do about as well as plain non-magical water. What would be interesting, though, would be if it did almost as well as conventional detergent, since that would indicate that most of the cleaning is done by hot water and agitation, rather than by the detergent.

    I have a hunch that that might be the case, since detergent companies spend big bucks producing ads trying to convince us that there’s a significant difference between their products, which usually means there isn’t. (Ditto Coke vs. Pepsi, Bud Light vs. horse piss, etc.)
