Electricity-Free Laundry

Post by trailprepper » Wed Dec 09, 2015 4:44 pm

I came across this little machine (http://igg.me/at/yirego-drumi/x/12675374)... it only requires water and detergent. It seems like it would be an ideal appliance for when the grid goes down. What do you guys think?

Cool gadget but for $200+ I think I would prefer to just wash my clothes by hand.

Or a clean five gallon bucket and a new, dedicated 'toilet' plunger: fill bucket with water, add soap, clothes, and plunge the clothes clean. Rinse and hang to dry.
And don't forget to use the soapy/rinse water for flushing your toilet!

Thanks guys - I guess what I like most about this machine is that it will take less effort... Just using a foot pedal seems a lot easier than hand washing, especially when it's cold out.

I've got a bucket and plunger ready to go, but the Wonder Wash is supposed to be pretty good, and it goes for around $50...

I recently bought a breathing mobile washer http://breathingwasher.com/ for my son's mechanics clothes. I use a 5 gallon bucket and pre-wash the oil & grease out before putting them through the washing machine. It agitates the clothes very well, I don't find it takes much effort, definitely happy with my purchase.
