In order to complete his final degree project, Oliver Blackwell (23), the University of Plymouth graduate has designed a new machine which washes, dries and irons clothes in separate compartments to eliminate colour runs and shrinkage. It’s said that the smart machine saves about 10 days a year in ironing time!
It can tackle up to 16 items at a time, including king-size bed sheets.
Because hangers are used, they do not become entangled and have 83% fewer creases, according to the designer. The items are then dried and ironed by hot air blown across them.
The designer claims another major benefit of the separate compartments is that muddy sports gear can be washed at the same time, but at a different temperature to delicate fabrics.
WashDryIron retail price is expected at Â£800 to Â£900.
