Airwash Waterless Washing Machine: Another Notch in the Bedpost

When we first spotted the Airwash laundry concept back in 2005 (it was fresh off a ElectroLux Design Lab 2005 Award win), we had high hopes for the waterless washing system. Using negative ions and compressed air, it cleans clothes without the universal solvent, which is a pretty great idea. We weren't the only ones to be impressed; it's back in the news as a winner of an Index: Award as a prototype (produced by Electrolux), a step up from concept but still not something the rest of us can use. They say it's the "washing machine for the home of 2020" but we hope we don't have to wait that long to try it out. ::Index: Awards via ::Apartment Therapy: Green Home
