In order to create a washing machine that would use less water and less energy while still providing a superior clean, we had to forget everything we thought we knew about laundry. We had to go beyond the traditional soap, water, and heat to introduce an entirely new element to the wash process.
Reduce water consumption for customers by up to 80%.
Reduce energy use by up to 50%.
How do Hydrofinity machines work?
When a wash cycle starts, XOrbs are added from inside the machine's storage area to mix with the fabrics and a small amount of water. The water itself is sprayed in, rather than poured, to improve efficiency – imagine the difference in water usage between a bath and a short shower. The XOrbs gently massage the garments, loosening dirt and stains. XOrbs then expand slightly, creating microscopic cavities that absorb and trap stains, carrying them away from your fabrics in a small amount of cold water. When the wash cycle is completed, XOrbs automatically return to a holding area inside the machine and are ready to be used again for the next wash.
What happens next?
XOrbs are used for up to a thousand washes and are then collected by our technicians to be recycled and exchanged for new ones.
