Although I despise doing laundry because it’s a hassle, I do love clean clothes. Nothing like having loads and loads of laundry done, and the satisfaction face on once it’s all complete. Nice fresh smelling clothes after a hard day’s work. But I’m a girl, and cleaning is a natural instinct… so what if you’re a young guy who refuses to do laundry? Luckily, I have something to tell you about.
The New York City start-up Wool and Prince has come up with a men’s dress shirt that doesn’t need to be washed for 100 days!!! Best of all, it doesn’t need to be ironed and they claim it won’t even smell after those 100 days. Okay, backing up a bit….first of all ew, and second of all, germs? What happened to worrying about germs and being absolutely disgusting? Who would actually wear the same shirt for 100 days in a row?
There are just too many gross everyday scenarios that come to my mind and I can’t help but cringe knowing that this company actually tested this shirt out for 100 days without washing it. Sitting on the subway, spilling coffee or food on it, sitting next to a smoker, sweating and the list goes on. But like I’ve said before, 2013 is the land of the lazy…anything you can do to make life easier makes money these days. So men-this one is for you…Merry Christmas!

A Waterless Washing Machine?
It’s 2013: and people have never been more aware of their carbon footprint. Whether it’s recycling more often, planting their own fruits and vegetables, or reducing the amount of water they use…people have a watchful eye.
And since technology is becoming more advanced by the resources we have now, there have been many inventions to aid people to do their part to help the environment especially when it comes to reducing water consumption. Inventions such as waterless dish washers, automatic sinks and many other options that essentially help you save money and water.
However, it seems that LG has created a concept idea known as a Waterless Washing Machine that washes and sterilizes your clothes without water. Although LG did not specify if it would be completely waterless, or just virtually waterless, either version will be more eco-friendly compared to what everyone currently uses. Seems too good to be true though…because that would mean you no longer need a dryer!
I, along with a majority of people dislike doing laundry. It’s literally an all day affair. Lugging loads of laundry down the cellar, keeping an eye on the clock to throw it in the dryer once the wash cycle is complete, and don’t even get me started on folding and putting away the clothes after. Literally can’t think of anything more annoying to do. But with this, it will help eliminate some of the process of cleaning clothes all while saving time, money and water. What more could you ask for?
All this seems great, but I won’t be satisfied until a robot can perform all of this for me. A girl can dream, right?

Guys-cover your ears. Ladies-listen up. It’s here, and we all need it. Let’s be serious, us ladies do all the laundry in the house. Washing clothes is a piece of cake…empty dirty clothes in, choose the load size, and bam, it’s done before you know it. Unless you add bleach by accident-hey we’ve all been there, right? But drying is a whole different ball game.
If you shop at Anthropologie or any store that sells delicate clothing you know you literally CAN’T dry anything from there. It shrinks to the size of Barbie’s shirt, and there goes $70+ down the drain. You can’t dry jeans unless you like them tight and stiff. Can’t dry dresses that have beading and the list goes on and on. But a bra…now here is something you totally can’t dry. The wiring gets all bent if you by accidently throw it inside the dryer. And if it’s made of delicate lace or has beading, say goodbye to it when you open that door.
The only solution is to air dry it somewhere and hope someone doesn’t walk into your room with bras hanging every which way. Not to mention it takes a few hours to completely dry. Such a hassle. Not to fear, clearly some smart soul out there felt bad for us and created a drying solution tailored to bras-and it wasn’t a lady!
It’s called Ricasol and it needs to be in every ladies stocking this Christmas. Here’s how it works. “Ricasol is a ground-breaking concept of appliance that is designed to dry your bra quickly and efficiently. It also helps preserve your bra’s shape, making your shape the best it can be.” In addition, it uses “infrared light that gently warms up your bra and evaporates the moisture in the bra padding and fabric. Hence the induced air flow removes the moisture leaving you with a dry and beautiful bra.” Problem solved.
The best part is that it only takes 20-30 minutes to dry. Hooray! Seriously, there’s officially an invention for any problem a person could have. Add this to the list of the weird and wonderful inventions of the decade.

We all know a delayed flight can be quite boring, especially when traveling by yourself. It happened to me a few weeks again, so naturally I just hit up the bar to pass the time…nothing a Bloody Mary couldn’t fix. But what if alcohol isn’t your number one solution to pass the time? I can’t say it enough-There’s a solution for that!
It seems that some lonely sole has created a dating website called “Meet at the airport” which helps you meet people while stuck at the airport. I wish I was kidding but it seems this is indeed real. Yikes.
This differs from other dating sites because it matches people based solely on their flying itineraries, but uses airports worldwide so you meet people from all over compared to just in your area like other dating sites. Like the website says “Wouldn’t it be great to say, “we met at the airport or we met on a plane”. Make your flight reservation and know that the fun doesn’t begin when the airplane arrives at its destination, the fun begins when you arrive at the airport!”
This all seems a bit too bizarre for me, but more and more individuals rely on dating websites for them to meet “the one”. So if you are an adventurous type that is up for anything-give this a try the next time you fly!
