Have you ever wished that you could bring along your washing machine where ever you go? There are times when you are on a camping trip and you accumulate mud and dirt on your clothes. It is simply impossible to pack that piece of clothing together with the rest of your clothes and wash it when you reach home. By that time, the mud would have hardened and the stains would have had set into the fabric. You might as well throw the apparel away.
The solution to this laundry nightmare is the Portable Mini Laundry Pod. Created by a company in California, the designers got their inspiration from salad spinners. Measuring at 33 by 35 inches, this Portable Laundry Pot can fit snugly anywhere in your dorm room or apartment without taking too much space unlike a bulky washing machine.Even better, the Portable Laundry Pod is eco-friendly. It doesn’t require a lot of water and it runs without electricity.
For a single wash, the Portable Mini Laundry Pod can take about six items. You simply add a soap solution into the Portable Laundry Pod together with your clothes, close the lid, and start churning the basket within the Pod by turning the handle on top of the Pod. After 10 minutes of getting a good work out from turning the handle, you can empty the Pod via a hose at the bottom. After that, you begin the next rinse cycle with clean water to make sure your clothes are soap free. You will need to dry your clothes by squeezing the water out with your own hands and most likely hanging them up to dry.
