A new process called “spin-coating” is part of a breakthrough technology that may drastically change the amount of water and detergent that we use in our laundry rooms and kitchens.

Essentially, spin-coating is able to coat any fabric with a thin layer of plastic filled with active enzymes that would eliminate stains as soon as they land on the fabric.

The same process can also be applied to kitchen counters or other household items to kill bacteria on their own, rather than with additional cloth or chemicals.

The process is being developed at the University of Minnesota, and with a little help, will be making its way into our homes to help cut back our water use even further.
