18 Self-Cleaning Design Concepts

From Self-Sterilizing Litter Boxes to Stain-Removing Apparel

— May 11, 2016 — Art & Design
These self-cleaning design innovations range from self-sterilizing litter boxes to stain-removing t-shirts that work to remove bacteria and dirt independently without relying on a traditional washing machine.

Standouts range from self-cleaning cars and keyboards to urban overpasses that are equipped with sophisticated sterilization features. Appealing to hygienic consumers who seek cleanliness without the effort and time associated with it, these smart home products and digital devices are hassle-free and convenient.

In addition to singular products, other notable examples of self-cleaning design include self-sterilizing swimming pools, airplane bathrooms and other similar examples that can be implemented in both public and residential spaces. In addition to satisfying consumers with an appreciation for cleanliness, brands are also creating self-cleaning concepts in the realm of architecture and transportation.
