Pocket-sized Sonic Soak cleans clothes and everything else


It’s hard enough finding time to do laundry and even harder when you’re on the road. Enter Sonic Soak, a tiny pocket-sized cleaning tool that uses ultrasonic waves to clean your clothes, fruits and vegetables, the kid’s toys and even your jewelry.

Sonic Soak consists of an AC (110/220V) powered control module with a built-in auto timer and a vibration generator made of medical grade antibacterial stainless steel. It weighs a mere four ounces and can be taken anywhere. 

The company says the device works by vibrating 50,000 times per second generating modulated ultrasonic sound waves that create high pressure bubbles. These bubbles in turn travel quietly thorough the water, efficiently attacking and sucking the dirt at a microscopic level from your item to be cleaned.

Since there is no physical agitation, nothing is actually rubbing continuously against your clothes, for example, so it’s easier on the material. This makes it ideal for delicates like silks and cashmere. In addition, it’s also eco-friendly, consuming less than 10% of the energy and 2% of the water of a conventional washing machine, Of course, it won’t be able to handle things like a full load of towels in one go but then again, its designed to be portable.

The product is currently being offered through an Indiegogo campaign which apparently has successfully started turning their prototype into a mass-produced product. The campaign has only been running for a couple of days and they’ve already raised over US $128,000 US blowing away their modest goal of US $10K with still a month to go. Obviously, people see value keeping clean. Early birds can pick up one for only US $125 (50% off expected retail price) or two for US $230 (US $115 each).
