Forget Drycleaning; Swash Your Clothes!

Dry cleaning can be a hassle. It’s expensive, it can take a long time, and it isn’t very good for the environment. Unfortunately there aren’t that many alternatives, but luckily the folks at Whirlpool and Tide have come up with a machine that solves all these problems.

Named the Swash, the system helps save your dry cleaning problems in three ways: First of all it saves time by helping garments look their best under 10 minutes. Second of all, it cuts your dry cleaning costs down by about 50 percent. Third of all, it saves your clothes by preventing dyes from fading and fabrics from pilling. White, blue and orange lights count down cycle completions and also alert you in case anything goes wrong. In addition, it’s nice and compact, so for those of you who don’t live in compact apartments, there’s plenty of room to store Swash, which can fit right into your closet. And, you don’t need any complicated water pipes, just a standard outlet.

In those 10 minutes, it removes wrinkles, neutralizes odors, and restores the fit of your clothes, returning them to the condition that you bought them in. How about that? You may never have to go to the dry cleaner again.

Still not sure about it? Swash only costs $500, and if that investment is too high, they’re giving a 45-day risk-free trial.

We have to say, with all the delicate clothes in our wardrobe and the nuisance of ironing and dry cleaning, Swash just might be a god send.
