Hippies have a saying, “save water, shower together.” That suggestive line might work when you’re at B&B with your sweetie, but it’s not so practical when traveling, living with roommates, or in the dorm.
But wait, isn’t it gross to wash your clothes in the slightly dirty water that you’ve used to clean your body? It certainly would be, but the team of four Turkish design students who created the Washit already thought of that. “Washit uses a closed-water plumbing system that collects the greywater from the shower outlet and stores it in a tank ready for washing laundry,” explains Gizmag. “Before the greywater reaches your clothes it passes through a series of three filters – carbon, organic, and chemical – to ensure your laundry doesn’t emerge dirtier than when it went in to the machine. These filters can be removed for cleaning or replacement at any time.”
