"Bought mine two years ago and love it. Use a 5 gal bucket with maybe 2.5 gal of water and minimal soap and it works wonders. I do small batches every night leaving them to hang dry on a cloths tree in the tub. Clean cloths by morning. I did get a longer handle, love it dearly."

"Had three of these brought into the Yuctan portion of Mexico for a nursing home. Nuns had been hand washing linen using buckets and scrub boards, you'd have thought we had given them a commercial washing machine after they used these for a day. Great product, great results"

"I love this tool. I thought I would just use it for my hand washables but I use it for almost everything! Jeans, blouses etc... I live in a condo that has a laundry room in a dingy dark basement 4 flights down! Thank god I I don't spend as much time there now!! It doesn't take much time or energy and it really cleans my clothes much better than I had hoped for. "

"I use it for everything except heavy blankets. It saves a lot of water and soap. I use three 5 gallon buckets. One for soapy water and two for rinse waters. I won't have to buy a washer and dryer using this method. I have to pay for water and then pay for it again when it goes down the sewer pipe. The average top loading washer can use over 100 gallons of water per load. It would be too expensive to own and operate them here. If I bought a washing machine it would be an old wringer type but I would only use it for blankets so it's not worth the purchase price. I can take them to the laundromat cheaper."

"Outstanding product. I switched to doing all my laundry by hand a few weeks ago to save water and electricity, and this device is fantastic for getting clothes clean quickly and thoroughly. Makes a world of difference compared to just using one's hands. As has been noted, a switch to a longer handle (I used a painter's roller extension handle, which can be had very inexpensively) is essential. "

"I bought this breathing hand washer a while ago and just want to say that I really love using it! It does a great job and saves on electricity and water. I soak my husband's grimy work clothes in a large plastic tote and plunge away! Great release of frustrations:) I couldn't be more pleased with it, I kind of feel like Little House on the Prairie when I use it. Most of my laundry gets hung out on the line. Nothing better than that either. Thanks for this product!"

"Much easier to use than I expected and my clothes are many, many times cleaner than they were when I used an automatic clothes washer. I am ridiculously pleased that my front loader died while money was tight so I could end up desperate enough to try this thing. A few things I have figured out: wet clothes should be no more than 10" deep or the bottom layer won't get clean, if it's hard to "plunge" the hand washer you need more water, one rinse is sufficient for even the dirtiest clothes (I am using this washer in conjunction with a Spin-x and that might have something to do with only needing one rinse), and doing laundry for 6 people (including 2 teenage dancers) takes only 10 minutes more per day than when I had a front loader. I am never going back."

"Customer named Joan called, and really wanted to give review of this item. Not exactly sure how you want to word this, but, she used it for a used throw rug purchased at a thrift store. She was amazed at what a wonderful cleaning job the breathing hand washer did! She says it saved water, and electricity(had she used her washing machine)It took her 10 min. to get it totally clean.Great Product!"

"I decided to try this hand washer since I'm having plumbing problems but an operational well. Using a large rectangular container it sure beats doing it (1) by hand, (2) broom handle, or (3) sink plunger. Since it's plastic I don't worry about rust and my clothes are coming out just as clean as using a washing machine."

"I'm happy with the breathing washer. The handle does come unscrewed occasionally, but that's a pretty easy fix. It does a great job on all of my laundry. Very pleased."
