Tornado / Washing Machine

It is a washing machine borrowing the principle of "tornado" which is a natural phenomenon which can maximize gravity and centrifugal force which is the basic principle of washing machine. Recently, outdoor drying of laundry caused by air pollution is concerned. "Tornado" creates a tornado of air immediately after washing with water to dry the laundry with natural wind.
