Design may be housewives’ choice

A new machine which washes, dries and irons clothes could clean up for a Devon student.

Oliver Blackwell, who designed the WashDryIron, is exhibiting the machine at next month’s Ideal Home Show.

The University of Plymouth graduate hopes the machine will become an object of desire because it saves about 10 days a year in ironing time.

The machine washes, dries and irons clothes in separate compartments and is said to eliminate colour runs, shrinkage and ironing.

It can tackle up to 16 items at a time, including king-size bed sheets.

Because hangers are used, they do not become entangled and have 83% fewer creases, according to the designer. The items are then dried and ironed by hot air blown across them.

Mr Blackwell said he expected the WashDryIron to retail at about £800 to £900.
