NEWS – Are you the type that whips through your laundry chores, only to have fresh, clean clothes sit unfolded until the next time you wear them?  FoldiMate can fold an entire load of laundry in just five minutes, all automatically.

FoldiMate is a smallish refrigerator-sized device that will fold most of your laundry items into perfect, closet-ready piles.

According to their website:

FoldiMate will fold any type of shirt, blouse, or pants from age 6 to adult size XXL. It will also fold standard size towels and pillowcases. FoldiMate works best with average-sized clothing and laundry items. It currently won’t fold very small items like baby clothes, socks or undergarments, very large items such as sheets, or very bulky items such as hoodies.

You feed the items in one at a time. The unit continuously accepts items while folding the previously accepted item, allowing for non-stop folding. This results in their claimed five-minute runtime for an entire load of laundry of about 25 items.

Once the folding is done, a lighted drawer opens automatically, presenting you with your folded stack.

They claim that it will be relatively quiet – about the same as an average clothes dryer.

I hate folding clothes and hang most of my shirts and pants.  If you’re more of a folder, this might be for you, but, it comes at a price.  Right now, their targeted launch price is $980, and that’s not guaranteed. FoldiMate is an in-process project looking to launch late in 2019 in the US and then internationally. FoldiMate released a previous version in 2017. This new model is claimed to be a result of all the feedback they received and a major upgrade in the folding experience.

      According to their site, they took all the feedback from the original, made improvements, got rid of unpopular features and put all that into this new one. It’s not targeted until late in 2019, so we shall see what if anything happens with it.

    1. Seriously, Brooke – we have to take advantage of them all now before they become our evil overlords. Don’t feel bad at all. Save that for when SkyNet takes over. 🙂

  2. A $1000 bucks to fold your laundry. I’ll admit folding laundry isn’t my favorite task, but I sure as hell can think of other things that I would rather spend my money on — this is laziness beyond stupidity!
