A while ago we took delivery of one of those wonder wash manual washing devices which completes our clothes washing by hand set-up. I’ve been washing by hand with some launderette visits for a while now and with literally no enthusiasm or space to put a replacement washing machine it’s become an accepted way of life.
The wonder wash is aimed at those who need an alternative to a washing machine or need a portable camping solution that requires no electricity for washing. You fill it with washing liquid (or washing balls if you believe that hype), water and clothes, screw down the top which pressurises the contents (and intensifies the washing action) and attach a handle to turn the drum over for up to two minutes.Release the pressure, attach the drain arm (I just drain into the sink from the lid, it’s quicker). Repeat with more water to rinse a few times. The spin dryer takes care of the wringing to an extent that only minor airing is then required after this process.
It sounds basic but it seems to work well for us and is saving on the electricity and water bills so I can thoroughly recommend this if you’re looking for an alternative way to wash your clothes.
