"Great product - Learning curve (I would like to add i use this product with a 5 or 7 gallon bucket) with just laundry detergent, water, a bucket and this plunger i am able to remove rust-dust and grease stains from tightly stitched white thread LOGOS on my clothing. -BETTER THAN BLEACH! Pro: insane suction, sturdy construction, gets my clothes CLEANER than ANY electric washer i have EVER used (both home and laundromat machines) Con: the threads of the handle to the plunger do come loose, i have not had it fall off or anything (some epoxy or superglue-easy fix) If your hands are wet and soapy the handle is very slippery (i also fixed this with some epoxy and a bicycle handle-bar grip) BOTTOM LINE-> Great product and after a couple of easy fixes THE BEST PRODUCT you will ever find to clean your clothes!"

"Good product. As other commenters have mentioned, had a problem with it constantly unscrewing & coming apart. Read another review where consumer used o-rings, & did same with mine--solved problem. Love this, & love that I can wash clothes in my own home without wasting a lot of water."

"Does a good job washing clothes plus your arms get a good workout. My only complaints are that you have tighten the washer after each use and I would have preferred a mop sized handle instead of a toilet plunger size. Washing clothes in a standing position made it easier to use. Otherwise it is a great product. "

"I was extremely pleased with my first order from Lehman’s! The Breathing Hand Washer came quickly and well-packed, and was sturdy, durable, and easy to assemble. I tried it out right away, washing in a 5 gallon bucket, and found it to be a very effortless and effective way to clean clothes. No more energy-sucking, expensive washing machine for me! Washing each day’s clothing in the evening with the Breathing Hand Washer will only take a few minutes out of every day, and no more dumping of large amounts of washing machine waste water into my septic system. (Hint: swap included short handle a threaded mop handle if you want the option of a longer handle too.)"

"I absolutely love this thing! It works great on all clothes (delicates, jeans, etc.) and gives me a good workout at the same time. I actually look foward to washing clothes when I use it! I place my washing buckets in the tub and sit on the edge so I don't have to bend over and strain my back. The only negative is that sometimes the washer unscrews from the stick while I'm washing, but I just keep twisting it tight a few times. It's no big deal for me. Otherwise, I love it and I'm so glad I got it. Update: after a couple years, the plastic part that the handle screws into broke. At first, I crazy-glued it and then held it together for a few more months but it broke even worse now. I think the reason is that I was filling my buckets with too many clothes, especially heavy ones in the winter. So, I'll get another and try again but make sure my loads are smaller. Still a great buy!"

"Bought this last year for when we go RV'g but due to drought here in Ca. started this in backyard using the Farmhouse biogradable laundry soap I purchased here. Uses lot less water than machine, when done washing and rinsing, the lawn gets watered too! Great item!"

"I own one of these, and I absolutely love it. I have a front-loading washer and dryer, but this actually cleans clothes better than that does. I love this for smaller loads, dress clothes, track/workout clothes, soiled work clothes, etc. We have a travel trailer, and it's great to take on vacations. I just recently bought an electric spin dryer for use in our travel trailer and at home, and it is a wonderful combination. I highly recommend this product--it's simple and inexpensive, but it works quite well, and it's a lot less hassle and takes up much less space than an electric portable washing machine. "

"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. "
