New apps mean Londoners may never have to wash again

Jasmine Gardner, Technology Editor for the Evening Standard, joined Wake Up London to discuss the best and the strangest in technology this week. 
This week Jasmine discusses the apps and technology that mean Londoners may never have to wash again. ZipJet and Ihateironing are mobile dry cleaning and washing apps where the user can request their clothes are picked up, cleaned and returned within 24 hours or so - the companies collect and deliver, so there’s no need to even head to the nearest shop. 
For those who want to look after their clothes in their own home - and who have a lot of cash spare - there’s the LG Styler. While it looks like a refrigerator, the device is more of a wardrobe with an inbuilt washing system that helps get rid of bad smells, can get rid of wrinkles and can refresh clothes with detergents too. 
For those who like luxury but have no time, Jasmine explains how Swash works - a cleaning system that claims to get clothes looking their best in 10 minutes.  For those with deep pockets, the Swash system should help preserve clothes, as it avoids harsh chemicals and the rigours of washing and drying.
