LG May Develop Waterless Washing Machine
The Korean electronics firm is planning a home appliance that uses steam and and other technologies to reduce wrinkles and odor.
LG is rumored to be creating a washing machine that doesn’t use water. According to Engadget, the Korean electronics manufacturer is focusing on next-generation smart appliances next year and this top secret product is in the early stages of development.
The company unveiled another solution for freshening clothes without water or detergent at CES earlier this year. The LG Styler is a “clothing management cabinet” that uses a combination of technologies including steam to help reduce wrinkles and odors on clothing.
Especially useful for suits and blouses, the machine keeps clothes looking, feeling and smelling refreshed. It gently shakes steamed items to reduce everyday wrinkles, odor and dust.
Users can also choose from a variety of aromatic scents to spray on their clothing items. The LG Styler is going to receive a feature upgrade soon, with the addition of ironing functionality.
