Development of a Waterless Clothes Washer

First waterless urinals, now waterless . . . clothes washers? Two students at the National University of Singapore’s School of Design and Environment have won the 2005 Design Lab Award at the international Electrolux Design Lab competition for their design of Airwash, a washing machine that uses neither water nor detergent. Airwash instead relies on negative ions, compressed air, and deodorants to clean clothing. More information is at designlab.electrolux.com/node959.asp.
