    Cleaning with Magic Water
    University Housing is transitioning to utilizing liquid ozone – sometimes referred to as “magic water” by staff – as a cleaner and sanitizer for the Residence Halls.  Based on U-M testing, this cleaner is not only much more environmentally friendly but it works better over time (bringing dirt to the surface) and costs 50% less.  However, in part because of the lack of smell or residue, this transition represents a paradigm shift for staff (and students) and a key leadership moment for U-M.  391 students helped shape this cultural shift for U-M and developed materials to promote this transition to other campuses and institutional settings.

    Sponsor: Vicky Hueter, Director of University Housing Facilities
