Hey, down through the ages, doing the laundry -- washing the clothes you wear -- getting them clean, fresh-smelling, nice to put on again, has evolved. No matter how old or young you are, you probably remember what your mother did, how often she did it, and what tools and what soap she used.
Was it one of these? It reveals her age, and yours more or less.
Well, open your mind guys, soon, hopefully very soon, we'll be using Beads. You're gonna grab a handful of Beads and throw them onto the clothes. They're are key component in a laundry system developed in the UK ten years ago. At the University of Leeds, School of Textile, researchers found that tiny nylon beads mixed with a tiny amount of water, acted like a sponge and soaked up dirt from fabrics they started washing in a new washing machine they were also developing, named "Xeros."
Newsweek Magazine, said in its recent "Magic Beads" article -- "It could be the biggest leap forward in the laundry business since electric powered machines rendered wringers obsolete." Los Angeles Times said, "Xeros and Beads will ease California's drought and help save the environment," and published this picture.
Golly, I hope it's soon. Like I said, I don't love doing the laundry. Note, in the selfie, my fake smile and the size of the pile.
