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)
  • 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. Delivery may take several weeks or longer.

"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."

"I used this to process gallons of cream at a time into butter. It works 2x faster and with less effort than any churn I have ever used."

"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."

"I love this machine. Saves water, soap, time and does a perfect job. Especially good when the power is out. Just read the instructions if you want a good, clean wash load!"

"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."

"The frame is not sturdy, it could be more robust, have quick release clamps to lift the barrel out. I use it in the tub where it fits but with little room, it gets the clothes well washed, the soap gets in. But the cotter pin holding the crank handle kept clipping me. After cranking it for a while I drain, open the top further agitate and remove to rinse - the frame is not sturdy - hope it lasts. I purchased it because the high dollar products being produced seem to be built with intended obsolescence. This was an alternative to buying expensive junk."

"Very flimsily made. Not stable while in use. Lid broke after five loads. Handle falls off when turned. Leaks. That having been said, the concept is good. So I threw this piece of junk out, and bought a large pickle jar with a clamp-down lid with a rubber seal. I put the clothes in there with some hot water and soap, then roll it back and forth briskly for a few minutes. The pickle jar works better than this silly contraption. I use this method to get out deep, long-standing stains, and to brighten up clothes that look dingy despite laundering. Works like a charm."
