    I enjoyed your take on washing machines :).But we have to now find cloths which will be requiring less detergent or less water to clean them or both B).
    Also, the time which we use for reading books,can be used to teach people from that section of world who have no access to electricity/partial access to electricity.

      Good idea, but remember that washing machines can also be made smart. Metal can be recirculated, water use minimized, detergents mild to the environment and the electricity delivered grom green production.
