Gadgets and Game Plans for Laundry

If you're into gadgets but not into laundry, then you're going to love the Swash.

It's for "re-wearers", i.e., people who don't wash a garment after one wear. In just ten minutes--the time it takes to shower--it'll spray a garment with a gel, wet and then dry it. Wrinkles and odors disappear by the time you're ready to get dressed.

This is the perfect solution for Campbell & Kate customers who want to wear their super versatile shirts to everything. No more having to change your entire outfit because you realize in the morning that you should have washed your shirt the night before. And no more donning a too-stale shirt, hoping nobody will notice.

The $499 price tag is steep for a uni-tasker, but the Swash will perform one more job--hold all those clothes that you don't feel like hanging up. Simply drape them over its rounded top, and you'll be able to use that chair in your bedroom for sitting!

Speaking of hanging clothes, here's a brilliant--and free--way to track how many times you've worn your shirt. I wish I could say that I thought of it myself, but the credit belongs to a Lifehacker commenter:

When you wash the shirt, hang it on the hanger with the top button buttoned. Each time you wear the shirt hang it back up with the next lower button buttoned. It's an easy way for me to look at my shirts and know which ones are fresh out of the laundry or which have been worn a couple times.




I have to get one of these, great share.
