Washing With Less Water

Washing full loads of laundry with only one cup of water? The Xeros washing machine, created by researchers at Leeds University, uses plastic chips combined with just one cup of water and detergent to clean your clothes. Since washing machines are a major source of water consumption, this invention, if it is viable, could help reduce our water usage by an enormous amount.

Hmmm, it sounds like a great way to directly save water, but as with TUA and Patrik, I'm a bit skeptical about the chips. My main concern is: how often would the chips need to be replaced? (That is, do you only use them once per load; can you use them on multiple loads, if so, how many?; etc.)
Check the link: 20 kg of chips, but they can be used up to 100 times - the equivalent of six months washing.

You obviously don't know my Mom :D
Yeah, that would be the equivalent of about one week for us.
