People who are living in small apartments or buildings with no washer hookups and all those outdoorsy types know how hard it is to have clean clothes everyday. All that running up and down, dragging your laundry around and having to sit and wait in the Laundromat can be pretty annoying, especially when you are in a rush. And I don’t even want to mention how hard a normal thing like washing your clothes can be during camping or boating trips.
Owning a small, practical and portable washing machine could be quite a blessing sometimes. The truth is that even if you do have enough space to fit a normal sized washer, that doesn’t mean it’s the best solution. Yes, I am talking about water and detergent consumption and, off course, there is always the problem what to do if you are on a long camping or boating trip. Owning a portable washing machine means you won’t have to squeeze in a visit to the Laundromat every weekend. And not just that!
These portable gadgets:
1. Are great for trips:
Manual washing machines are ideal for all outdoors activities with your family. So if you decide to go camping for two weeks, you don’t have to pack a two week supply of clean clothes. A manual washer, for example, will do the job in just 10 minutes and you don’t even need to plug it to an electric output. These washing machines are small and lightweight so you can take them with you anywhere you go-camping, boating… you name it.
2. Save money
Portable washing machines are an ideal way to cut down on detergent usage and your electricity and water bills. If you live alone or with a roommate and you just hate having to wait for ages until enough dirty laundry is collected, then this machine will be a great solution. That way you won’t have to wait and you can even put just two or three things inside without feeling guilt for wasting all that water, detergent or electricity.
3. Save space
These little devices will enable you to maximally utilize your limited space. Some models are incredibly small and can fit on your counter top. However, if you need a bigger one don’t worry. Even that one will fit right under your sink, and you can take it out only when you need it.
4. Are good for sensitive clothes
Some portable washing machines wash the clothes by making water pulsate through them. That means that clothes are not rotated like in the regular washing machines. This method is more gentle and therefore very good for sensitive clothes. Since the vibrations are not strong enough to break down regular detergent, usually liquid detergent is used and that is another benefit of these washers. Why? Well, liquid detergent rinses off better and doesn’t leave that residue like regular detergents. All this will enable you to machine wash even very sensitive clothes without any concerns.
