The Pocket-sized Laundromat

On days like this, when the laundry has piled up, I wish we all could go back to the basics and potter around in our birthday suits. The problem with people like me, is that we can’t stand even the slightest of stains … nope, the dribble of ink on a white sleeve doesn’t count as polka dots! And I’m not surprised that design enthusiasts like Heewoong Chai would design instant laundry solutions like the Handry, just to cater to fastidious people like me.

Designed to be an on-the-spot cleaner, this portable wand is a laundry machine that is inspired by traditional washing methods of Korean households. They typically use a laundry bat to ‘beat’ out a stain, quite similar to how we treat dirt and grime back home.

Without being as elaborate, the machine is a quick-fix to complicated laundry rituals and focuses on spot-cleaning only. In short, a sweaty garment qualifies for a full treatment and this shortcut will not do.

This wireless-charged machine promises to complete the wash in about five-minutes. You can even customize the wash based on the dress material and kind of stain to be treated. Sounds to be a good deal, given that single people can greatly benefit from a new ritual that makes time for other stuff to get done … like washing the dishes!
