Not even solar powered. Foot powered washing machine.
This looks to me like a great camping option when you are off-grid for a few days and not wanting to go to a laundromat. Not really something I would want for a long-term solutions.
However, if you have kids with too much energy this could be a pretty good win-win solution.
Basic concept looks pretty good. What do you think?
This new washing machine from Yirego is powered by a foot pedal and doesn’t need any electricity. It will be made out of 40% recycled material, making this no-electric cloths washer a sustainable solution with very little impact on the environment.
According to the website:
This design challenges the public laundry experience as well as solves the hand wash-only complication of delicate garments. It is not only more hygienic than public laundromats, but also a fraction of the time.
Watch the video. It can hold more clothes than I expected.
