The future of laundry

The future of laundry

Oxwash are re-engineering the laundry process from the ground up. They collect your laundry, ironing and dry cleaning from your doorstep using electric cargo bikes, before washing your items using state-of-the-art low-impact washing technology.

Oxwash are determined to be the first truly sustainable, net-zero impact washing company in the world. Rated ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ on Google, Oxwash are currently available in London, Oxford and Cambridge.

Oxwash aim to be completely plastic-free by the close of 2021 and are currently phasing out the last piece of plastic in their supply chain for a starch replacement that is fully home compostable! They even use hangers made from recycled cardboard and clips made from reclaimed wood!

Here's how their innovative laundry process works to create cleaner clothes, and a cleaner planet:

  1. 1️⃣In Oxford, they use water reclamation to reuse the water from a previous rinse cycle for the next wash cycle. This saves up to 60% of the water consumption versus a typical commercial washing machine and 70% compared to a domestic washing machine. In London and Cambridge, they have second-generation weighting technology that removes the requirement to recycle water as less is used in the process.
  2. 2️⃣Microfibre filtration captures more than 95% of all the fibres shed during washing. This process prevents plastic pollution of our waterways and drinking water. One-third of ALL ocean plastic are microfibres from our clothes, this has to stop.
  3. 3️⃣Disinfection is performed using ozone, biodegradable disinfectants (PAP) and quaternary ammonium compounds. Generated using renewable electricity and oxygen from the air we breathe, ozone is an extremely powerful disinfecting agent against many microorganisms.
  4. 4️⃣Automated dynamic dosing of vegan detergent from FILL prevents surplus chemical usage, providing a maximum clean with minimum chemistry addition.
