Using the power of ultrasonic technology, the pocket-sized Dolfi is designed to compliment your washing machine by tackling super-delicate clothing. Described as the perfect travel companion, Dolfi is a highly portable cleaning device that saves you money on laundry services and allows you to keep your packing to a minimum.
With users only needing a waterproof container (or plastic bag), a power source, and a small blast of detergent, Dolfi is a no effort, cost-effective solution to expensive hotel laundry services. After the 30-40 minute cleaning cycle, just simply rinse and hang up to 2.2 lbs of gently washed laundry and you’re ready to go the next morning.
So what makes this one of the most revolutionary smart home devices soon to hit the market? Named after Dolphins’ innate ability to communicate with ultrasound, Dolfi is using a state-of-the-art cleaning technology normally used in industrial and medical settings. Whether it’s dental instruments, surgical equipment, lenses, jewelry, watches, or auto parts, ultrasonic technology has been used to clean fragile equipment both gently and thoroughly.
According to the company’s Indiegogo campaign, the magic of Dolfi is in its multi-frequency transducer that “creates precisely modulated wideband progressive sound waves, which travel through water and form microscopic high-pressure bubbles. The tiny bubbles then implode, creating millions of micro-jet liquid streams.” The end result: a deep cleaning experience that protects your fabrics from damage usually caused by repeated washing machine use.
“With Dolfi, “Handwash-Only” labels do not apply.”
The creators of Dolfi designed the cleaner as a travel companion and is not intended to replace your washing machine. As a travel companion, Dolfi eliminates the need for excess clothing and at the same time, reduces the expense associated with doing laundry. All you need is a sink stopper, inflatable hangers, and Dolfi to make one of the smartest travel combinations imaginable. Just fill the sink with water, submerge your dirty clothes, add some detergent and let Dolfi work its magic.
Whether it’s delicate fabrics (silk, lace, cashmere, lingerie), men’s shirts/ties, wool sweaters, sportswear, or kids clothes, Dolfi ensures no wearing of fabric, no shrinking, and an inside out clean. Dofi’s real selling point to eco-conscious consumers: it uses “80 times less energy than a conventional washing machine.” From the freedom to buy handwash-only clothes to reducing your carbon footprint, the Dolfi is the perfect addition to any smart home.
So is the Dolfi practical? The answer is a resounding yes. Even though it’s not designed for big loads or “voluminous pieces of laundry (linens, towels, jeans),” the just-add-water-and-detergent set up is ideal for anyone traveling, wanting to preserve their delicates, or have an interest in saving energy. It’s also a super-silent system, unlike your washing machine. There are no cycles, so if you have roommates or living with light sleepers, there’s zero sound to content with while doing laundry.
Finally, the device is just a cool looking plug-in that when turned on, glows blue as it cleans your clothes. This lets the user know that their clothes are being washed via ultrasound vibrations in the water.
