Wonder Washer

by Laura
(London, UK)

This portable washer is great and very convenient as it allows you to do your laundry wherever you like, without the need for built in plumbing. It's very compact and doesn't need much water. When you're not using it, you can easily just stick it away in a closet.


I use it when I go traveling as it’s a convenient and quick alternative to hand washing. Admittedly, I wouldn’t use it for bulky or really dirty garments, but in the summer its great for washing t-shirts and skirts that are light and easy to clean. Apparently you can even use it to clean running shoes, but I’ve not tried that…

One disadvantage is that because of its compact size you can’t get many clothes in at once. An average load is maybe three t-shirts or two blouses, not much more. The machine works by spinning in one direction for a few seconds, then changing and spinning the other way for a few more seconds.

You can set the time of each spin. Unfortunately there’s no rinse function, so you have to wring out the clothes and rinse out the soap by hand.

It’d also be really nice to have some way of draining the machine while it’s upright rather than having to turn the whole thing upside down to empty it, but that’s a minor grumble really.

Saves energy and money
by: Erica

This washer is great! I was moving into an apartment with my fiance, and we did not have the funds to buy a full washer and dryer yet. I needed some kind of solution. The price of washing clothes these days are outrageous. It cost $1.00 just to wash, and another dollar to dry, and that is for just one load.

So, I picked up this Wonder Washer. It cost around fifty dollars, and worth the money. Because of it's size, you can only do small loads at one time, but it's perfect for washing those certain clothes you NEED right away, and it saves energy and water, so your bill stays lower. You don't have to waste time loading a full washer. I use this for my work clothes, and intimates, and do my bigger loads at my parents house.

It is very light and easy to use. It's size allows you to store it easily, and it's not hard to clean. I really have not been able to find a portable washer easier than this. All you do is put your clothes in there, fill it with laundry soap, and water. Then you just plug it in and let it go. You can set a timer, and choose high or low. It's very quiet so for those of you who work at night, you can do a load of laundry with out waking up anyone else.

It's small enough to keep in a camper, so if you are going on vacation it provides a convenient way to wash your clothes. I know a lot of people are also too embarrassed to bring their underwear and other lingerie to the laundry mat or to your apartments laundry mat. You won't have to worry about that anymore with the Wonder Wash.

You can do a whole load of lingerie with this machine. There are bigger portable washers out there, but you won't find one nearly as affordable as this one. You can almost get a whole washing machine for the price of most portables. I've had this for a couple months and I absolutely love it. I think you will too, and find it worth the money.

Don't just take my word for it, you should try it out for yourself. This is also a great solution for truck drivers who are on the road often. Don't waste your time stopping to wash clothes, just get a power converter for your car ,and plug it in. I give this Portable washer a 8 out of 10.
