Lazy laundry-doers, rejoice! Clothes that wash themselves are on the horizon. Researchers from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology at the University of Melbourne have developed the newest innovation in laundry, which could be as easy as stepping into the sun. Say “goodbye” to water intensive washing machines, and “hello” to your newest cleaning device … sunshine!With this new kind of fabric, a copper and silver nanostructure is woven inside cotton textiles and kept in place by a fixative solution. After you step into the sun, solar energy catalyzes a chemical reaction that eliminates stains by releasing high-energy electrons that break down the dirt. The stain could be gone in as little as six minutes.
