Dry Clean Your Clothes At Home

Adulthood can be rough for many reasons, not least of which is the fact that you now must have your grownup clothes dry cleaned. So annoying. So expensive. So...gah. Good news, though! They've finally devised a magical, at-home dry cleaning machine that'll bring your office garb back to life on a whim, and it's called the Swash.

The tall and slim rig is sized to fit neatly in your closet or up against a dresser, and sports a pull out garment rack that will treat whatever article you clip in it.

Inside, it's equipped with a set of Whirlpool-engineered guts that—when fed a special K-Cup-like cleaning pod—will remove both odors and small wrinkles from your higher-maintenance threads at the press of a button.

However, they're upfront about the fact that it's only meant to prolong the life of those garments in between trips to the professional dry cleaner, thus the promise to cut how much you'll be spending there. But for the more serious, er, grownup (?) messes, you'll probably want to skip the Swash and hit the big guns.
