Japanese manufacturer King Jim has introduced a tiny desk top washing machine designed to wash a shirt or other small item. The (Petite Laundry) Swoosh is about the size of a kitchen food processor. The mini washer has a 5 liter tub, uses 1 gallon of water, requires a place to drain the waste water, takes approximately 18 minutes and reportedly leaves the shirt or garment dry enough to be able to wear immediately! This may be the perfect item if you have teenage girls in your house. You would no longer find your regular household washer being hijacked for use with a single blouse, favorite pair of socks or any other tiny object! It is projected to sell for $160 dollars and is expected to be launched in the states around the first of the year (2014).
