Leave your clothes hanging in the wardrobe. Put in the washing ball (or whatever), close the door and hey presto, half an hour later your clothes will be washed, dried, refreshed and because they're hanging, they won't even need ironing.
similar, just for ironing [Wes, Apr 03 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]
Same idea, different application
hmm... why not a compound model? dishes, clothes, bedding... [absterge, Apr 03 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]
I thought I was original...
Still some nice original ideas there, especially about implementation. [pashute, Jan 28 2009]
||A flexible waterproof divider could separate the "clean" half from the "dirty" half. When you're done with an article of clothing, you hang it up in the "dirty" half, moving the divider if necessary to make room. When the "dirty" half has enough clothes in it, you add the detergent and press the button (and close the door). When it's done and dry, you just move the divider over to the edge and start over.
||The advanecd model could move the divider itself, have a hopper for detergent, and automatically start itself when needed.
||In the deluxe advanced model, you just ball up the
clothes and throw them in the bottom... the wardrobe
hangs them up for you.
||Ya said "For those with short fuses..." not "For those of us...", so you're off the hook. SuperWax saves the day! Take your time with my laundry, I'm in no rush.
