Pressure Handwasher

Item #1152405
14 reviews
Ships from Manufacturer. Allow several weeks.
Today's Price: $49.95
Newly Improved Design!

Portable and quick, this little handwasher cleans small loads of laundry with very little water and soap, in only two minutes! When warm water is sealed in the airtight drum, the heat causes the air to expand, which builds pressure. This drives the soap and water into the clothing and combines with agitation to "blow" the dirt out.
  • Ideal for delicate fabrics (use lukewarm water)
  • New patented lid is easy to remove with built-in lever
  • Metal axle is now built inside the unit for sturdier construction and long-lasting use
  • Maximum load: 5 adult shirts or a pair of jeans
  • Works best on small loads
  • 17"H, 14"W, 5 lb
  • Imported

Note: This item is shipped directly from the manufacturer and can only be shipped to a physical address. Delivery may take several weeks or longer. It will ship parcel post to AK, HI and Canada (please call us for a quote: 1-800-438-5346).

Missionaries, travelers, college students, off-grid homesteaders and power outage victims will love this little handwasher. Several big improvements make this model much more stable and convenient than those we've offered in the past.
  • Wide base with 4 suction cups on the bottom
  • Secure handle and rigid arms
  • Solid metal drive shaft
  • Convenient, removable drainage tube (11-1/4"L) with slide in self-opening/self-closing valve - insert the tube and open the drain without spilling a drop
  • Water tight seal on lid
* NOTE: This product is drop shipped. This means it is shipped directly from the manufacturer and may take an extra week or two to be delivered.

"I finally got around to washing some hand-knitted goods with this last night. It assembled easy, almost didn't even need the pictorial instructions. It's likely that the manufacturer has responded to some of the build-quality concerns, because it seemed sturdy enough to me for the size loads it's built to wash. The included cotter pins kept everything firmly in place, and I saw no expansion in the mounting arms. I used about one third of the amount of detergent the instructions suggested, and my items were thoroughly sudsy after a couple minutes of agitation. I'm a fan of how simple this washer is to assemble and use, and I'm impressed with how little water it uses. Disclosure: I am a Lehman's employee."

"I raised 10 children and at one time to save money bought one of these. I eventually bought a 2nd one to do my husband's work jeans in. I loved it then and one of my children wanted mine so I am about to buy another one. I have washed sheets, adult sized work jeans, towels, etc. in these and always got clean clothes. The drain pipe is NOT suppossed to be permantly attached. It locks securely in place. If it came off with only "1 pound of pressure" you did not have it completely locked in place. In 13 years I have never had the lid come off. I do wish I had gotten a wringer and bucket for heavier items and will be doing this time. I really believe many of the complainers are not properly using their machines. You must use hot or warm water, that is what causes the pressure, thereby locking the lid and assisting the cleaning process. I suggest you read the instructions."

"My wife and I travel a bit pulling a travel trailer to always accomodate pets. We love the little thing. Holds up okay. I just tried to size it up structurally, and, treat it with some care. Use it some on countertop, sitting in chair, left hand lightly on base, right hand cramks. Rinse as much as needed. And, dont use too much soap. I read another review in here and they made great point.. If you use regular washer/dryer, wash at least once with NO SOAP, then start using your little hand washer. If you dont, like they said, you have a hard time getting out that first batch of soap out of it. SEriously, does well. treat it easy. should have it a while. we have."

"Does everything it is supposed to, gets the wash so clean. Underwear, curtains, socks. Supplements the wringer for the little and delicate things. I use it outside which is easier and fun."

"Ok... I agree, the crank handle is crap. Throw it away. The drain tube? Yeah. Crap. Throw it away. But after throwing those two things away, you've got a real gem!! Turn the tub end-for-end by hand. I don't find a lot of difference if I just rock it back and forth and only go 360 deg. but every 10th time. If you get a dribble or two out of the top, so what? Buy a cheap bath towel and put the unit on top of that. If my frame ever breaks - and it shows no sign of doing that after doing ALL my laundry for the last 3 months in this jewel - I'll build another. If the tub cracks I'll buy a new one. Here's a tip, though... If you've been using automatic washers, run your clothes through one last time when they are ready to be washed. BUT DON'T USE ANY DETERGENT!! Your clothes have retained so much soap that if you try to use the handwasher, you'll be very frustrated trying to get all the soap out the first time you try to rinse them. Then, be VERY careful how much detergent you use. I find that 1/2 tsp is fine for a 1.5 - 2-gallon wash load. And you can wash two to three loads of clothes in that original wash water. What a water saving device!!"

"this does do what it says it does. It does get your laundry clean, but it does not work well w cold water. It does not rinse well at all and the drain that comes with it is basically worthless. the frame is flimsy but usable, and the suction cups leave a lot to be desired. All in all it is decent for the price, far better than hand washing. I am just going to have to find a better set up for the rinse loads."

"This is an awsome product. I was so excited when I saw the box, that I had to try it out right away. It took about five minutes to put together, which was nice. The second handle that came with it stumped me a bit till I figured out that it was an extra piece. I put in some of the soap nuts that Lehman's sells along with some old stained washcloths. It took me less than 10 minutes to get them all clean! I'm very pleased with this washer. The only downside is that it's made from plastic, which I wasn't expecting."

"I really like the product and have owned two. I had to buy the second one just to get a new lid and now this has broken. Hoping just to buy a new lid."
