Sometimes the piece of clothing you really want to wear, the one that would be perfect for the day is sitting in a pile of dirty laundry. It’s a waste of water to throw it in the machine so you resort to hand-washing in the sink. There’s a better way with the Gentlewasher, the small load washer that runs on crank power.
This device is a crank powered washing machine made for handling small loads or delicates that won’t survive a full machine run. It can clean your clothing in as little as five minutes and there’s no electricity needed.
To use just connect it to your sink for filling and draining, add your preferred soap and clothing, then start cranking. There’s a wash and rinse cycle. After a few moments of hand spinning, your clothes are ready to be wrung out and hung. This machine is good for people who have a lot of delicate clothing or those who find themselves in need of a few pieces to wear between laundry days. Gentlewasher is $299.
