Plainie / Dormitory Washing System


The structure design of the washing machine allows debris to accumulate between the inner and outer drum. Besides, residents in most of the dormitory in Taiwan have to share a few washing machine. It makes the hygiene problem even worse.
Plainie is a washing service designed for these kinds of dormitory. Now, people can reserve the washing by their schedule using the Plainie app, no more time wasted on waiting. The design also features a detachable laundry basket to replace the inner drum. Without the gap between the inner and outer drum, cleaning becomes much easier.
