Airwash - washing unit that require neither water nor detergents - Idea
(Mars colonists as all other peeple will need they'r clothes cleaned. Whether there be a real obligation for Hygiene in MCO or will the washing machine be just a graphical element that does nothing, is optional. I present you the latest invetion from 2005 that uses no water and no detergents - which obviously has is advantages on Mars)

    “Called Airwash, the waterfall-inspired washing unit is waterless and does not use detergents. Instead, it utilises negative ions, compressed air and deodorants to clean clothes. By using atmospheric air and negative ions � a natural cleansing agent � it fights dirt and bacteria with nature’s own weapon. Airwash is also designed to be placed anywhere in the home, instead of the designated laundry area.”

However, in the "smart" (read that as "green" or environmentally friendly) home, any appliance that can be used to reduce the use of water in a household is to be welcomed. I can see an Airwash Machine installed in my bedroom, but other items will still need to be cleaned in the washing machine. Perhaps the Airwash Machine could cut the amount of "water washing" I do in half; that would still be a great saving.

There are 2 other waterless machines developped that I found:

Interesting
Murphy's Law applies "Anything that can possibly go wrong, does." or some say it this way "If anything can go wrong, it will.
