For those who know me, they know my hobby for inventing new things for everyday life. I rarely actually make these things, I just think of them, and put them out there in the collective consciousness and usually someone else eventually produces it. SO... I have decided to start posting my invention ideas here on my blog, just for the sharing. And if anyone gets inspired and wants to cut me a check... by all means. :)
I think there should be an all-in-one washer/dryer unit. I, for one, find it frustrating to have to switch the clothes from the washer to the dryer. This inevitably causes scheduling conflicts for me, trying to be available when the clothes need switching, so that they don't mildew, etc.
However, IF there was an all-in-one unit, no one would have this problem! :) It could either be attached, with a mechanism that moves the clothes over, or it could all be the same machine. You should be able to set the setting for each function at the start of washing, and then be able to leave the clothes unattended, trusting they will be clean and dry upon your return. Maybe it could even dump the clothes out into a basket to promote the "prompt removal" so often requested on clothing tags?? heh?
to go to the studio. and NOT wash clothes.
