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).
