    Hey There,

    Been lurking for some time and finally decided to make an account. I run a technology company that builds waterless laundry alternatives for high-end clothes, and things that you cannot wash/dry clean.

    Would love to chat with anyone whos interested, of if you're looking to start a company (especially hardware) I've been doing this a while and am willing to help out. You can check my current company out here: [Edit: removed]
    Regards,

    Hey man,

    Got it, wasn't trying to push (I don't think my target market browses BHW) and I removed the link to clear up any confusion. Although I did obfuscate it like in the rules (but I get what you're saying and my bad)

    Best,
    A

    LOL ur quote intrigues me: "and things that you cannot wash/dry clean."

    I have no idea what sort of clothing this is. All clothing can either be washed or dry cleaned... now I'm interested what falls in this category

    You'd be surprised! But the two (Can't launder vs don't want to dry clean) are mutually exclusive.

    For example, Raw Denim Jeans: You pay $200 for a decent pair, and the whole point is to not wash them. You break them in over the course of a year and avoid the wash to lock in custom fades to your body. Can't launder.
    Another example: Bras. You can't throw them into the laundry because they will get damaged (esp if they have a wire), you dont always have time to handwash, and you don't want to get them dry cleaned (who does that?).
    Sneakers: nuff said

    Things that fall into the can't launder, but can dry clean (maybe don't want to though) are: Suede, fur, certain leather, silk, cashmere, etc. These things CAN be dry cleaned, but it costs a fortune and you run the risk of damaging it.

    Hope this helps. Our initial strategy is to go after clothes that aren't serviced by current cleaning technologies, and then expand to dry cleaning, and eventually all laundry.

    I appreciate the advice, and I removed the link :)
    I've been a vet at other forums and I understand to respect my elders ;) Any and all advice is appreciated!
