Benefits and Regional Potential
Non-Energy Benefits:

Possibly offsets some detergent use; however, this depends on the stain and likely the amount of soiling.

Elec. Potential: 0
Gas Potential: 0
Explanation:

Two products were tested using ASTM D4265–14 Standard Guide for Evaluating Stain Removal Performance in Home Laundering (tested by SGS, Test Report No. 3982807-CPCH01).

Product with cold water and detergent works as well as hot water and detergent. Product without detergent struggles with some stains, such as mustard and grass. Without significant non-energy benefits (i.e. no detergent needed), this product has significant barriers to adoption with minimal savings.
