The Telegraph has this very interesting piece on a British company, Xeros Ltd, that has invented a washing machine that uses almost no water to wash clothes: Link. Corresponding to the heavily reduced water consumption is a proportionate reduction in the use of detergent and electricity. I would like to see one of these machines, and, if they go on sale in the USA, to buy one as a replacement for the Braun at home.
The manufacturer, Xeros, has a nice website at: Link Is an Indian company going to jump and license this tech? I hope someone does . . .
