Imagine this - you come back home after a 5 mile morning run.

Soaked with sweat, energized, excited with this lovely morning and the upcoming day.

You drink a full cup of water, or two, and step into the greatly appreciated shower.


You step out and genuinely appreciate your coffee.

Ready to start your day, there is one thing that remains undone... Your running clothes are still saturated with sweat and stink.


How are you handling them and making the transition into something cleaner and useful for the next run?


The Challenge

Here is my dilemma, one set of workout clothes is too little for a standard washer, and gathering the workout clothes through the week can be somewhat inconvenient, especially in a small apartment.


Is this also your challenge?


For a while I used to toss the clothes in the laundry basket, and wait for it to get full.

Two or three days later the pile of dirty clothes smelled even worse due to the unconventional biological stink source which was my shirt. As a bonus, this did nothing good for the clothes.


And, my spouse asked me gently to find a better solution for the smell…


The Obvious Solution

So I started immediately washing the clothes after the run. Small bucket of water, detergent and rubbing for several minutes did the trick much better.


But, I would rather not do it.

Because, well, it is washing by hand, and who has the time? And, really? In the morning?


A Better Solution

So, an idea was born - a small washer that handles one set of running clothes after each run.

As an outcome, clean, nicely smelling clothes, a not-worse-than-usual-smelling laundry basket and apartment.


And, a happy spouse.

The Idea

This is the ideal outcome:

  1. Small, compact washing machine.
  2. Suitable for shirt, shorts, socks, headband – all together (but not much more that that).
  3. Easy to use and realized as quickly as possible.


What am I looking for?

  1. Small container, preferably water tight.
  2. Tilt/rotating mechanism to put the container on.
  3. Supports for the sides.
  4. Driving motor.
  5. Sturdy base to put everything on and adapters for everything.


Are you curious to see if something comes out of this?

Me too.

I have no idea how it will look like in the end, preferably it should resemble the sketch.
