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.

"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."

"I bought this fully aware of the review regarding it's flimsiness. Assembled in a few minutes, it was even more lightly built than I had expected, but used carefully, it is doing what I wanted it to do. I touched the drain pipe inadvertently after a few loads and it separated from the collar that lug-locks it to the drain. Less than a pound of pressure. Apparently the pieces hadn't even been glued, just put together slip-fitted. I repaired it using crazy glue. Never pick this thing up when it has anything in the tub. The frame pops right off and the fastener covers pop out. I discovered that when I tried to pour out the liquid by picking the thing up and pouring after the drain pipe separated. If you can give it protected floor space that's level, and have a smooth surface to use it on it is superior to hand washing. A shame. The drum is sturdy, and if they had used ABS or even another 1/16th thickness of the members this could have been a good machine. It definitely could not survive a move assembled. I haven't attempted to disassemble it, so don't know if that is feasible. Not the quality I expected from Lehman's."

"This pressure washer was just plain crap! It requires one person to hold it and another to turn the handle...and the thing leaks after two uses. The handle can come off if turning fast too. Poorly made plastic. buy something stronger made of better materials. This is just not worth it!!!"
