Intriguing, but I don't know anybody who uses either of these for camping, etc.

I've seen these little washers but have never tried one. I'll be interested in seeing if anyone else has used one and can tell us about their experiences.

There was much rejoicing!

Has anyone had experience with these?

The first link is a hand-operated washing machine that uses little water & detergent combined with pressure to clean 5lbs of clothes -- the video demos on You Tube usually show a load of several shirts or children's clothes, so I guess 5lbs would be one or two pairs of pants.

The second link is a 110V spin dryer which extracts most of the water (and any residue from detergents and fabric softeners) -- as with all extractors, the load has to be positioned properly. Clothes come out ready for ironing, or hung up to dry (supposedly within an hour), or thrown into a regular dryer (claims to cut drying time by more than 30 minutes).

Here are both links (from the same company):

www.laundry-alternative.com/drying.htm

These have been around for years, so they must work if people are still buying them.

I've already had all the bad things thrown at me early in life, so now that those are out of the way, my future should be wonderful.
