There's a new washing machine that doesn't require electricity — it's completely foot-powered. You power the machine simply by stepping down on a lever over and over and over again. So you won't just have clean clothes at the end of it, you'll have toned calves. Two birds, one foot pedal.
The Drumi by Yirego is a portable laundry machine that will wash your clothes in five to 10 minutes. It's small, easy to load, and you can take it anywhere.
Simply add water, add detergent, fasten the lid, and pump your foot until your clothes are clean. Unless you have a portable dryer, you'll need to hang dry your clothes.
Here's how it works:
Even though you won't be able to wash a huge load of laundry, there are some key benefits: it uses less water, which is good for the environment and your bank account; it'll save you time if you only need to wash a few things, and it's compact and easy to store.
