Although there are undoubtedly handfuls of people who won’t believe it ’til they see it, the first ‘virtually waterless’ clothes washing machine has been invented, and is almost ready for public consumption.Although there are undoubtedly handfuls of people who won’t believe it ’til they see it, the first ‘virtually waterless’ clothes washing machine has been invented, and is almost ready for public consumption. The brilliant invention, created in conjunction between Xeros and Cambridge Consultants, is based around a discovery made by a Professor at the University of Leeds which proved certain types of polymer plastics could be used as a cleaning agent. What makes the waterless washing machine even more impressive, besides using 90% less water for every load, it also uses 30% less energy, less detergent, and it takes even less time to clean. Plus, since there’s no need to tumble dry, every load takes less and less energy after the wash is done. Even though you can’t find this at your local appliance store just yet, Xeros plans to have a commercially viable version of the eco-friendly invention available by 2010.
