Vinisha has designed a mobile ironing cart, which uses solar panels to power a steam iron box. This can be powered by pre-charged batteries, electricity or diesel-powered generator in the absence of sunlight. The most important benefit of solar ironing cart is that it eliminates the need of coal for ironing. The vendors can move around and offer services at doorstep for increasing their daily earning. For earning extra income, the ironing cart can be fitted with a coin-operated GSM PCO, USB charging points and mobile recharging.
