 Shower That Washes Your Clothes While You Take Bath

A Turkish inventor has designed a combined washing machine and shower in a bid to save water.

'Washit' will give your clothes a good soaking while you are taking bath with a unique pump system that shower run-off water to give your clothes their first rinse, the Daily Mail reported.

You may think it's unhygienic, but don't worry it is just the first rinse-cycle, that uses your cast-off water to wash your cast-offs.

Industrial design student Ahmet Burak Aktas hopes combining the water will cut down on the 150 litres of water used for a 15-minute shower and the 38 litres used on a typical wash-cycle

The design comes in two forms: a secured unit for showers in public places, and a domestic product for your bathroom.

"Washit is a product that changes our daily routines. It is responsible to our most precious resource: water," the paper quoted Aktas as saying.

"With Washit, washing clothes in piles will become a thing of the past. Every time that user wants to take a shower, it will be an opportunity to wash a few pieces of clothes without using any extra water," he noted.

Washit consists of a closed plumbing system with two water pumps and three filters - carbon, organic and chemical. The unit also houses a heater, UV filters and a water storage unit.

While users have a shower, Washit gather graywater from the shower cabinet and sends it to the water storage, first going through the filters.

So all the water in storage is cleaned and ready to be used again either for showering and washing clothes, Aktas said.

"After the shower, user can take back his washed clothes or leave them there for Washit to dry. Washit refills itself from water main in case of water loss," he added.
