THE ‘world’s first self-cleaning jumper’ has been unveiled — just in time for messy Christmas parties.
Liquid is said to bounce off the polyester without staining it — and it apparently doesn’t need to be washed for a month.
Entrepreneur Varun Bhanot, 29, said: ‘We created a jumper and a hoodie range that repels liquids, dirts, sweats and odours.
‘You could spill your coffee, spill some water, or maybe you’re at a party and you might spill some wine down your jumper.
‘You could wear it in the gym, or you could go out and about in it for more than a month and you probably wouldn’t even need to wash it.
‘After more than a year of experimentation, prototyping and fabric development we’ve created what we think could be the world’s first set of self-cleaning clothing.’
Varun and wife Anisha (above), 29, from Chigwell, Essex, who set up the charity Unhoused.org, say they will donate one hoodie to the homeless for every one sold.
The couple reckon the £69.99 jumper dries 40 per cent faster than regular clothing.
Varun said: ‘It could be a game-changer for sustainable clothing all over the world, and an absolute life-saver for the UK’s homeless and those sleeping rough, who may not have access to washing facilities and need to be kept warm and clean all year round.
‘What is great is for every single one bought, one is donated to the UK’s homeless.’
