The new generation of powder will allow astronauts to wash their belongings in space, because now it is impossible. There are various reasons, but the main one is water. The fact is that astronauts use a closed water supply system, so cleaning agents must have safe ingredients so that the water after washing can be turned into drinking water.
Because of such a problem, astronauts on the International Space Station often have to carry things several times and then store them. Tide’s new development will help solve this problem. First of all, no water is needed to use the powder. In addition, it will be made from degradable detergents. The first tests of the novelty are scheduled for 2022.
By the way, such a powder can be used on Earth. According to the company, it will be more environmentally friendly.
