GmaiL - GMail Laundry

Have Gmail do the Laundry
  [vote for,

On Gmail's Feature Suggestions page, just after a serious request for a more functional search with partial words and wildcards, (a suggestion which has hundreds of requests in various threads on the web for over 4 years now) they give you the possibility to "suggest" another one of their own ideas, which is Have Gmail do the Laundry.

Now since it was Gmail (i.e. Google) that suggested it, and since they can invest nice money in startups, I hearby propose a half-laundered idea: Gmail Laundry.

It works as follows: A Gmail Laundry "file" can accept up to one set of clothes, which when submitted, is taken via a fast elevated small package network [see link] to the nearby available laundering hub, which can even be a home where someone has linked up to the network, in a trusted way - say by paying an insurance fee and proving identity and location, (hey its a hardware network we're talking about, not easy to fake your identity, and not worth disappearing with your neighbor's underwear). Within the shortest time possible, the clean and folded clothes are on their way back to your inbox.

When you want to get rid of old clothes, you put them in the GMail Laundry Recycle Bin for charity or for the Greengros.
