When Ultrasonic cleaning is adapted in Indutries , why clothes washing at home using above tech not come yet?
The principle behind this is creation of million of micro bubbles generated by ultrasonic energy & by way of the bubbles collapsing instanttaneously inward creates enormous sucking force to pull out dirt in its near vicinity and other deposits and stains etc from the fabric, thereby no mechanical or chemical damage is done to the fabric washed and a little of detergent use is enough for just keeping such released particles in suspension by covering the released particles/elements, thereby assuring a best wash even in most soiled places like cuffs and collars or whatever it is.
Also the use of detergent is minimised saving a lot of chemicals used/manufactured, thereby environmentally the waste water after wash is less polluting the earth and the manufacture of LAB also will be limited to the demand.

You're right - ultrasound would do a great job. I suspect they are a bit expensive, since the transducers and electronics would need to be rather large, but such washers are (or at least were in 2002) available in Japan for a little over $1000 (see 2nd link). The EPA estimated that ultrasonic washers would reduce energy costs by 50% (see last link).
A fascinating government study from 1996 concluded that it is feasible, but does not clean clothes effectively with current designs (see 2nd to last link).Source(s): http://www.designnews.com/article/CA201955.html http://www.zerowaste.ca/articles/column137.html http://www.aceee.org/pubs/a985.htm (see towards bottom of 1st table) http://www.freshpatents.com/Portable-clothes-washe...
