Ultraviolet washing machine

Electrolux has a brand newwashing machine that does not use water to keep your clothes clean, anidea that will definitely not find any buyers among the older folk whobelieve that there is nothing better than a hard scrub and lots of warmwater to get rid of dirt and grime. The KaionWAVE washing systemutilizes ultraviolet-C light instead to clean nano-coated fabric whichis widely tipped to be the fabric of choice for future clothes. TheKaionWAVE is extremely small, making it ideal for tight living spaces.This washer/dryer home appliance is currently a concept only, but itwould be great to see a commercial version be made available.
