Washit can be modified specially for public usage. You can access the washing machine from inside the shower cabinet, in this way, there’s no need to get out to put your clothes into the machine. Public Washit features the ability to refresh clothes with Airwash technology, thus enables you to take your clothes back quickly without any bad odors. The plumbing system features 2 water pumps, 3 filters (carbon, organic and chemical), 1 heater and water storage unit. While you take a shower, Washit gathers waste water from shower cabinet through its filters and straight into the water storage. In this way, all water in storage is filtered and ready to be used again either for showering or washing clothes. Just in case the machine needs more water, it can automatically fill itself from the water supply lines.

It’s been a little less than three months since Mark Luckie left The Washington Post to become manager of journalism and news at Twitter, and now he’s got some advice for journalists using the microblogging network.
