Germ-killing garment cleaners: a garment care appliance

The requirement to disinfect ordinary items has been reinforced by the pandemic and is likely to remain in place thereafter, which is taken into account in the FOL:U clothing care concept. The clothes vacuum cleaner features a vertical design designed to fit in a bedroom or closet where it can be filled with fresh clothes. The system will start working to kill germs with UV radiation and mechanically fold clothing for storage at the base, eliminating human contact.

The concept FOL:U clothing care device is designed to be used by parents with children’s clothing to ensure that the child is not exposed to dangerous germs. The device speaks to the changing face of home appliances as consumers look for alternative ways to carry out everyday activities.
