Clothing stains and spills often go undetected by the wearer of the clothes. A clothing spill usually prompts an urgent trip to swap clothing, which is an inconvenience. This disclosure describes a portable miniature cleaning robot that can detect spills or stains on clothing using computer vision, dispense cleaning fluid, and dry the clothing to remove the stains even as the user continues wearing the clothes. The robot, which is detachable and wearable, can be attached to an article of clothing whenever needed. The robot moves up and down the clothing and detects stains based on discrepancies in color or patterns. The robot can be filled with cleaning fluid that can be dispensed on stained or covered areas to remove the stain.
