Uh, What? Washboard Will Mail You Quarters For Your Laundry

Washboard

 

The Internet is where you find all things absurd, kooky, and cool. Washboard is a little bit of everything, although its name doesn’t give much away. It’s basically a monthly subscription service of sorts where they’ll send you quarters which you’re supposed to use at the laundromat so you can do your laundry. It makes sense, considering most people have to scramble and look for change when they’ve got loads to wash.

The part that doesn’t though, are the rates. Under the $10 per month plan, Washboard will send you ten bucks’ worth of quarters for $15. For $20 in quarters, you’ll need to cough up $27. You don’t really get your money’s worth, that’s for sure. Washboard’s campaign was up and running but they had to pull the plug because their concept violated their payment processor’s terms of service.

So for now, I guess you’ll have to stick to change machines or get your quarters elsewhere.

This Dude’s Clothes Horse Goes Round and Round

Clothes Horse

If you’re strapped for space and have a lot of laundry to hang, then you might want to embark on your little own DIY project and make something like this.

Second, it actually looks pretty neat–almost like a work of art, even.

When it’s in use and expanded in all its glory, his unconventional garment airer features 36 arms and takes the form of a 12-pointed star.

‘Bye Bye Laundry’ Hangers Get Rid of the Stink on Your Clothes

Odor-cleansing hangers

Too lazy to do your laundry? Then here’s a bit of good news for you: One day you might not have to do it every day–that is, if British designer Lisa Marie Bengtsson’s Bye Bye Laundry hanger concept catches on. These hangers are made up of a loop that’s attached to a dome encasing oxygen-processed activated charcoal. Instead of washing your clothes, all you’ll have to do is hang them on the loop and let the charcoal do its thing.

These hangers aren’t available commercially yet, and we’re not sure if they ever will be. And while they promise to get rid of the stench on your clothes, they won’t remove stains or bacteria, so you’ll eventually have to wash your clothes after a few wears. But that’s better than having to throw them in the wash after every use, right?
