A new device company for squeezing bags is on Kickstarter and promises to save hundreds of people in household cleaning products, such as hand soap and dishwasher detergent. It's called Cleanyst, and the press coverage of the device so far has echoed breathlessly the line of the company that is the "SodaStream for cleaning products." On his Kickstarter page, Cleanyst says that his device "offers the convenience of a Keurig or Nespresso device" and "the environmental benefits of a SodaStream." Wow
Yes, at first glance, you can actually put things like Keurig in a bottle shaped like SodaStream, but it's also very obvious that it's a Juicero.
Here is a side-by-side comparison of images:
Juicero was a damned company that closed its doors in 2017 after people realized that they could only squeeze the juice bag without needing help of a machine connected to Wi-Fi of $ 700. Cleanyst is at least a less expensive bet in the technology of tightening bags, and customers can buy in their ecosystem from $ 99. (Of course, if you only want to support the research and development of bag compression technology, there is also a level of $ 5 without tangible rewards). Cleanyst plans to sell the device at a higher retail price after the Kickstarter, according to Fast Company . When asked if they knew about Juicero while designing their bag tightening device, a Cleanyst spokesperson told us that "it is not related to any pre-existing product."
Cleanyst certainly seems more useful than a Juice Single-purpose Juicer, but it's too early to tell if the device is equally necessary. Can you put the bags of cleaning products of the company in a bottle yourself? Do you need the mixer, or could you simply add water and shake for one minute? The company says no; Cleanyst insists that "the main purpose of the machine is to professionally mix the product with the correct viscosity in the home, which can not be done by hand". In fact, the device is more sophisticated than the Juicero, which simply squeezed the bags to maximize their nutrition. while Cleanyst squeezes the bags, dispenses hot water and then uses an impeller to mix the solution in a bottle.
The designers say that Cleanyst is intended to reduce the environmental impact of shipping lots of cleaning products to the homes of people who are mostly made of water. And the device uses "100% recyclable" bags that must be sent to the company for reuse. But, according to Fast Company Cleanyst has not yet completed a life cycle analysis to determine the environmental impact of its own system, so it is not yet clear whether the large plastic device that it would actually purchase uses offsets Plastic bottles.
Anyway, that's Cleanyst: it's not a Juicero, but it's like .
