A silver lining in home appliances
Samsung’s new line of home appliances uses nano-sized silver ions - positively charged silver particles 75,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair - to zap disease-causing molds, germs and bacteria. Not only does the nano size allow the silver ions to easily penetrate the cells of microorganisms, but the positive charge increases surface area and draws negatively charged elements toward them to greater effect.
