The product look promising for use of camping. It said it could hold up to ten garmeents so I took a small batch of cotten under garments and put it to the test. It leaked immediately so it got sent back. Not impressed. Going old school with a.wash bin and board.
Not only does it do a great job cleaning small loads of clothes, it’s also a fabulous upper arm workout! Seriously, I am pleased with the simple and effective job this manual washer does. It’s satisfying to see all the dirt that comes out when draining. I know clothes are getting clean, which makes me happy!
I bought this unit knowing what it could do, without any expectations of what it couldn't; therefore, I have graded it five stars. As to being sturdy enough for the job, in my opinion is well built--though I have used it only once.
Soaking items first if possible is very important and recommended by manufacturer. I did. Removing any stubborn stains first is a must. Stopping every few seconds to reposition clothing is my recommendation too. The two items I washed were those that needed handling by hand and were not soiled. They came out clean. As always, I remove stains with Dryel before placing items in the washer(s). Rinsing: Items came out dripping some but it also depends on absorption and release in certain fabrics. As a substitute for hand-washing certain fabrics, this manual unit meets my needs.
This is a great little product! It saves me the cost and hassle of going to the laundromat, and gets clothing nice and clean! I love that it has a "spin cycle", so I'm not stuck wringing clothes by hand. The load sizes aren't huge, but they're not tiny either. For perspective, my last load consisted of a towel, t-shirt, and several face cloths. The only downside was the delivery time. It took a week to get to my home in Massachusetts.
