Got some time up on surfing today, & see what our peeps in the university had came up with:
A waterless washing machine that removes stains from garments in a few minutes has been developed at the National University of Singapore, the facility said on Wednesday. The appliance uses negative ions, compressed air & deodorants to clean clothes. Industrial design students Wendy Chua, 21 & Gabriel Tan, 23, said they were inspired by the technology in air purifiers, which uses negative ions to clump dirt & bacteria, making it easier for the particles to be sucked out. The ions are a natural cleaning agent.
Whee, maybe I do not even need to get my hands wet in the future!
