EVER THOUGHT – “THERE’S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY TO CLEAN CLOTHES WHEN AWAY FROM HOME?”
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT!
First we drafted an idea of how it might look.
We hired a London design firm to develop some ideas and we selected this one.
This design met our primary objective of a portable laundry system. Its simple construction enables the bag to be used for multiple purposes. We regularly use dry bags when sailing or boating, so it was a familiar concept.
Our design firm contracted a manufacturer to produce our first samples. This gave us a chance to look at materials and any manufacturing issues.
It became evident we would have to design our own filler cap. Lucky for us, our design firm’s specialty was threaded closures (primarily baby cups!)
With the filler cap designed, we were on track to begin a second round of prototype bags.
In the video, we used the second round of prototype bag which incorporates the filler cap.
Finally, we retained a London Patent Firm to investigate the uniqueness of the product prior to production and to write our patent. A patent was filed initially in the UK and was recently published in Europe. Because of the product’s ‘Green’ attributes — reusable, water-saving, no electricity required – the patenting process was expedited.
SO WHAT’S NEXT?
We need Kickstarter’s support to finalize the product (a few more changes will be incorporated) and to initiate our first production run of 2,500 Laundreez.
Prove market for Laundreez.
Obtain feedback from the community as we finalize Laundreez.
Develop interest in Laundreez.
We have received favorable reviews for several online crowdfunding websites.
