On our minds: Self-cleaning clothes in six minutes
Scientists at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology has discovered a way to grow small metal structures that can degrade organic bacteria and dirt when exposed to light.
On our minds is the new discovery by scientists at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology prompting a possible future for self-cleaning clothes.
The invention in short is a new way to grow small metal structures that can degrade organic bacteria and dirt when exposed to light – in as little as six minutes. The scientists’ challenge for now is to try and develop the so-called nanostructures so that heavier stains like wine and tomato sauce can be removed with the same process. With this, it might not be time to throw out the washing machine just yet, but we love the sound of the invention and hope to witness a commercialisation of self-cleaning clothes in the future.
