Have you ever been turned off by the hotel laundry services and their large fees and long wait times? Well, two graduates from Purdue Polytechnic Institute has created a smart and efficient solution by creating a budget-friendly and faster way to clean and steam your clothing. Sixteen Holiday Inns in the Midwest are testing out the Presso System, which is a hallway vending machine that will clean and steam your clothes in three to seven minutes and will not charge you any hefty hotel fees to do it. The Presso Machine is environmentally friendly and does not use any bad chemicals when cleaning your clothing, Presso uses a combination of Steam, a nontoxic cleaning liquid, and air drying.
“Our technology uses 100 times less water and three times less electricity per garment than laundry,” co-founder Thibault Corens told the Purdue Research Foundation News.
The Presso System is for guests to get their clothes cleaned and pressed and it is as easy as swiping a card and pressing some buttons. The system is not made to get out rugged stains, but the team is working on a machine for that.
I hope the Presso system comes to more locations! I am a freak when my clothing is not pressed and cleaned. This machine is my solution to all the clothing that gets creased when in my suitcase.
