The moment everyone dreads. You reach inside your beautiful new jumper/shirt/dress/onesie, fumble for the label and read the fatal words ‘dry-clean only’.
Now, thanks to a collaboration between P&G and Whirlpool, that sinking feeling will be replaced by one of smug satisfaction. Swash, a new ‘home garment care system’, lets you ‘refresh, restore and dewrinkle’ your clothes from the comfort of your own home.
The contraption works a bit like a Nespresso or Keurig coffee-maker. Just open it up, pop in a pod, then come back ten minutes later to find clean, pressed and ready-to-wear clothes.
There are even different fragrances to choose from, including Recharge, ‘to energise and revive your day,’ Unwind, to ‘exhale and relax as the day comes to a close’, and Awaken, to ‘embrace the start of each day’.
No free hanger or oversized sandwich bag, though?
