Oliver Blackwell, a graduate from University of Plymouth in the UK, has designed the WashDryIron. The miracle machine washes, dries and irons clothes in separate compartments and is said to eliminate colour runs and shrinkage.
It can tackle up to 16 items at a time, including king-size bed sheets. Because hangers are used, they do not become entangled and have 83% fewer creases. The items are then dried and ironed by hot air blown across them. The designer claims another major benefit of the separate compartments is that muddy sports gear can be washed at the same time, but at a different temperature to delicate fabrics.
