For years, various men in my life have tried to convince me that “airing stuff out” is just as good as giving it a wash. Not only were they sort of right, but Electrolux even awarded a prize for that “theory.”
The Airwash is a new waterless washing machine. It’s not ancient Chinese secret; it’s negative ions, compressed air and “deodorants.” Apparently when matched up, this trio has all of the cleaning power of your mom, your spouse and 10 bottles of Shout combined. I wonder if you’d get the same result from the deodorant and 20 minutes out the car window.
Oh Gizmo says they are working on a prototype. Electrolux says this was the winner of “the most outstanding new appliance concept for the home of 2020.” Looks like you’re stuck with the fluff and fold for a while.
