Auto-Wash Laundry Bag

A space-saving washing machine for small apartments

The AWLB should be hung on the bathroom wall and connected to a tap, power source and a drain. A flat cuboid with controls at the top, its front face has a tough plastic pouch open at the top - this is where clothes go in.

The sides of the pouch go into the machine and are rolled up inside; when powered off, they can be pulled out to expand the pouch and make more space.

To wash, seal the top of the pouch and power it on - soapy water first fills the pouch from holes in the back, soaking the clothes; then, the sides of the pouch are pulled in by powerful motors, squeezing the water out. This is repeated over and over to clean the clothes.

In operation, it will have the slightly unsettling appearance of a stomach digesting a heavy meal.

The wash cycle will conclude with rinsing and squeeze-drying.
