Title: What Is The Goo Stuff That Is Left In My Ioniser ?
Post by: neilep on 17/11/2018 12:59:45
Dearest Peeps Who Know Stuff,

As a sheepy I of course know everything there is to know about Ionisers, I know how to switch them on and also switch them off. Voila ! This may challenge your believability senses but I also know how to add water and the smelly oil stuff. Bravo moi !!

One thing alludes me (le shock et le horror !!) ....


What is the gungey gooey oystery stuff that accumulates after a while  inside ?

This is very important to know for me by next Tuesday as I'm having a bit of a soiree and am thinking about scooping it out and serving as part of a canape.

Thank ewe for your kind consideration in this matter.

hugs and shmishesmwah mwah !!

Ionisers they smell so good
Can the goo inside be used in a pud ?
Or a delicacy eating escapade ?
inside a nom-nom canape ?

If itís in a wet area I would assume some sort of bacterial or mold slime.

It's hard to say but...
Ionisers often also generate ozone and other chemicals like oxides of nitrogen.
Those in turn react with volatile organic materials in the air  and the reaction products are typically heavier and more polar so they are less volatile. They will therefore condense out on the first surface they come in contact with.

Probably not a good idea to consume them; it's odds-on that they are more toxic than the things they are made from.

Thank ewe both so much. Every ioniser I have produces the same goo. I will post a photo.I didn't really think it could be organic. Looks like I've created life in my ionisers. Guess I will need to look into schooling now that I've become a daddy.

There is no way that anyone can know if agent orange was a causative factor in anyone's cancer.

No idea what exactly the goo is in the ioniser, but I doubt it's good for you.
