October 1, 2006 Japanese company Nissin Medico has already had a runaway hit product with its spray-on stockings (great photo gallery) becoming massive sellers in Asia and warmer climates in 2003 and is now available in over 2000 American stores. Now the company’s subsidiary C.C. Medico (HK) which specializes in marketing spray products could have another product which creates its own category – a dry cleaning spray hit the Japanese market earlier this month. The product is claimed to dry clean business suits in just 30 seconds. Apparently you put your clothes on a hanger and spray them with the “Spray Iron” product which will “penetrate quickly into the fabric, removing creases, stains and odours immediately.” It sounds too good to be true but so did sliced bread, non-stick frypans and pimple removal cream. The patent application for the Wool mark, from the International Wool Society (IWS), is currently in progress.
Each bottle of the 220 ml spray can be used for up to 5 to 10 sets of business outfits, saving much time and money from taking them to the dry cleaners.
