It is not dissimilar to other products in the home-technology space like the LG Styler and the now-discontinued Whirlpool Swash. The premise behind home dry cleaning products is that power dressers, whose wardrobes have a lot of formal clothing that cannot be put in the washing machine quite often, will be saved a trip to the dry cleaner to remove minor stains and body odour.
This is done using a heating or steaming process within the closet. All clothes including sweaters, delicates, shirts, and dresses can be stored in the AirDresser. Samsung hopes it will be a hit with executives whose jobs require that they dress in attire that is hard to regularly wash, steam, iron or dry clean. One of the biggest selling points of such products is that unlike, say, a washing machine, they will not require extra space or a water connection, thereby offering a convenient storage space that takes care of one’s laundry.
Convenience comes at a steep price. The Whirlpool Swash cost USD 500 when it was introduced in 2014. However, the AirDresser will be priced less than the LG Styler, which retailed for USD 1,999 when it debuted in 2014, shortly after Whirpool made a splash in a then nascent market.
The AirDresser employs a JetAir system and Air Hangers to buffet clothes with a stream of fast moving air. Samsung claims that the latter technology differentiates its product from the competition as it is designed with a hollow centre, enabling steam and heat to strike and treat soiled clothes.
