This Machine Irons Your Clothes … For $927
Most people hate ironing, to the point where the average American would likely tell you that they don’t iron anything, even work clothes. That’s a big change from just a few decades ago, considering that most baby boomers (born 1940-1960) religiously iron everything. But, while leaving the iron behind is partially because many modern fabrics need it less and less pressure from more casual lifestyles, the biggest shift is time. Most households now include multiple people working full or part time, while taking care of children, and other household responsibilities. Taking the time to ensure that clothing is crisp and wrinkle free just isn’t as important as it used to be. Plus, nearly everyone hates ironing.
Effie is an ironing machine that promises to take all of that off your hands, by ironing and drying your clothing for you. The robot costs $927 and takes just 3 minutes to dry and iron 12 items of clothing using a (patent pending) steam treatment.
What is Effie?
Effie is a ‘robot’ prototype, designed by two 27 year old’s with Masters’ in engineering, Rohan Kamdar and Trevor Kerth.
How Does It Work? When clothing comes out of the wash, you hang it up on a regular hangar and place up to 12 items in Effie. You press the button, and the machine uses a patent pending steam treatment to dry and iron all of your clothes to create a crisp wrinkle free look that resembles the results from an iron.
After 3 minutes, you take your dry and wrinkle free clothes out from the other side and hang them in your closet.
So, It Steam Irons Clothing?
Most of us know that steam is a pretty good wrinkle relaxer. A lot of people already hang their clothing in the bathroom while they shower, so the steam reduces the wrinkles on fabric before they wear it. Many others use tricks like misting a garment with cold water before sticking it in the dryer – to quickly reduce the wrinkles. Of course, neither of these are as crisp as using a real iron, but it does remove the wrinkles. You can also purchase pods to add extra scent.
We haven’t seen Effie work in person, so we don’t know just how crisp the ‘ironing’ is, or how well it works on difficult pieces like collars and cuffs.
What About Drying?
It might seem counterproductive to dry clothing with what is essentially a gaseous form of water – but it works. How? By turning the water in the clothing into the steam that reduces wrinkles. It’s a technology that’s already in use in many washing machines with functions like “Steam Sanitize”. You put wet or partially wet clothing into the dryer and it steams them to give you back softer, mostly wrinkle free clothing.
In 3 Minutes?
3 minutes seems a bit fast after growing up with 3-hour dryer cycles, but…. the future is now.
What’s Next?
Effie is just one of a multitude of similar technologies that are soon to be hitting the [...]

How to Clean Mold Off Clothing | Mold Blogger

How to Clean Mold Off Clothing | Mold Blogger | CLOVER ENTERPRISES ''THE ENTERTAINMENT OF CHOICE'' | Scoop.it
Moldy Clothes Wondering how to clean mold off clothing? Here are all of the answers you need. Mold in the house is something every homeowner dreads and fears. Mold can be toxic and spread quickly and quietly without you even being aware of it. If you have mold in your home, you likely had water intrusion either from rain or flood water or a leaky pipe. Mold can ruin your belongings - from your flooring and walls to your furniture and even your clothing. Many times mold-damaged belongs must be discarded for your safety or because they have been permanently damaged. If you have found mold on your clothing or there is a potential for mold growth because of a flood, you may be wondering if you can save your clothes or if you need to throw them away. The good news is that (depending on when you found the molded clothing), you may be able to save them. With a little bit of persistence and quick action, you can often rid your precious clothing of damaging mold and make them safe to wear again. Act Quickly to Clean Mold Off Clothing If you have found mold, you need to start the cleanup process as soon as possible in order to successfully clean mold off clothing. The longer mold stays on your clothing, the tougher it is to remove. Even if you accidentally put your winter sweaters away before they were completely dry and just now discovered the problem, the sooner you act the more chances of success you have. The first step to take is to remove the clothing and take it outside. Do this right away for a few reasons. Removing the molded clothing from your home will help avoid further spreading and contamination. Mold spores can become airborne, and you don't want that in your house. Take the clothing outside before inspecting or spreading it out. The hot sun (if available) will help dry the clothes and kill the mold. By drying your clothes first, you will be able to clearly see where the mold has stained them. This will help with pre-treatment. Pre-Treat There are a variety of products you can use to pre-treat your clothing prior to washing it to help kill the mold and remove the stain. By pre-treating, you increase the chances of success in the mold's removal. Here are a few examples of products you may choose to use for pre-treatment of stains and to help clean mold off clothing. Bleach Borax Vinegar Baking soda A commercial spray treatment specifically designed for mold killing If you aren't afraid of using bleach on your clothes, this can be an effective method of killing mold and cleaning mold off clothing. You can choose to mix and dilute the bleach with water and spray directly onto the clothing or you can create a bleach bath to soak your clothing. Sodium borate (borax) or another variety of commercial spray treatment can be sprayed onto the mold stains directly. If you aren't into chemicals, you can also use a solution of vinegar and water or baking soda and water to put on the mold stains before washing. Washing in HOT Water Once you have pre-treated your clothing and allowed the treatment to sit for 5-20 minutes, you need to wash to clean mold off clothing. It is important to wash the clothing in hot water. Hot water kills mold spores so the hotter the water, the better. If your washing machine has a setting specifically for sanitizing, use it! The same solutions you used for pre-treatment can also be used in the main washing cycle. You can add bleach or white vinegar to your wash. Commercial detergents are also useful, and there are some specifically made for mold removal. Go ahead and wash the clothes TWICE in hot water using detergent or the solution of your choice. Dry the clothing in a commercial dryer or hang it out in the hot sun to dry. You can even do both! The heat from the dryer and sun will help kill any remaining mold spores. Once completely dry, give it the smell test. If it passes the smell test, your clothes should be safe to wear. If not, give it another wash to further clean mold off clothing. You can repeat this process a third time if necessary. Parting Ways with Damaged Clothing If you cannot remove the smell of mold completely or if your clothing has been visibly damaged by the mold, it is time to throw them away. More than the unpleasant smell, here are a few more reasons to part ways with mold damaged clothing if it cannot be successfully removed. The health risks associated with mold can be dire, and no matter how expensive the clothing was, your health is worth more. Even mild symptoms (itchiness and rash, sneezing) are not worth it. Mold can damage your clothes quickly. Mold starts to digests whatever material it grows on so if you didn't catch the mold soon enough, your clothing may already be damaged beyond repair. Mold can be released into the air if not completely removed. If you aren't able to remove the mold from your clothing, you could be potentially releasing mold spores into the air, and those mold spores can create health hazards for you and those around you. Conclusion Mold can wreak havoc in your home if left untreated, and your clothing is at risk as well. Whether you piled up a bunch of wet clothes and left them too long or if your home was recently flooded, wet clothing is a breeding ground for mold. If you have discovered mold on your clothing, follow these simple steps to remove and kill it as soon as possible. The quicker you act, the more likely it is that you will be successful in your attempts. But always remember to err on the side of caution. If you cannot remove the mold, it is best to part ways with your clothing rather than to risk your health. Have you ever found mold on your clothes? If so, what did you do to remove it?
