Like anyone living in New York will tell you, space is always a problem. So when I came across this product, I was ecstatic. I first saw the panda but they were going to charge me an arm and a leg for shipping. Amazon ships this one for free so I decided to get this one and I believe it works just the same.

I live in an apartment building and going to the laundromat is really a big issue for me. Yes I must confess. I'm one of those people that let the laundry pile up. I dread doing laundry so much that I sometimes let it pile up for up to 6 weeks [shh.. pls don't tell anyone ;) ] First of all, I have to drag the laundry down a flight of 3 stairs and then back up when the laundry is done. And then drive down a couple of blocks to the laundromat. The one very close to me charges $4.00 for a load for the small machines which I think is ridiculous!! Where I go to charge $2.50 for a load. The big machines are $3.75 and $4.50. Sometimes it's raining or snowing or it just rained and/ or snowed ugh.. you get the picture. Then at the laundromat, I have to deal with rude people, some machines will probably not be working so I have to wait for a machine to become available and then wait for the clothes to wash and then the dryer plus the added inconvenience of washing my clothes in public (when did it become acceptable to wash our dirty linen in public lol.. just saying)

With the base camp, I can do my laundry in the comfort of my home, while doing other house chores or just relaxing on a nice saturday afternoon. I don't have space for a regular washer. Even if I did, the cost of a washer and a dryer is very discouraging. This product saves on water, soap and money too.

i had stumbled across this washer machine by accident as I was looking for the wonder washer. i saw the Panda models and was interested immediately. Basecamp offered this similar one for cheaper, so i went for it. I go through about 5 dress shirts a week, I dont like the results & costs that most laundromats offer per shirt, This device within the first 48 hours of purchasing it, has already paid for itself. If you live in an apartment where the landlord restricts the use of mini washer/dryer systems, this is a great alternative, although there is a bit of manual labor involved after the wash is finished ( rinsing , drying etc ). I have compiled a quick clothing cheat sheet, yup i put this thing to work right out of the box.

Clothing Tests ( To give you an idea of what it can handle ):

All tests done with leading liquid laundry detergent and/or bleach
In some instances for thick cotton clothing, filled the tub up to 3/4

Thermal Sweaters ( no more than two at a time )
Hooded Sweaters ( One at a time, water makes them real heavy, didnt want to stress the agitator )
Blue Jeans ( 1 to 2 jeans simultaneously, depending on size )
Dress Shirts ( 5 simultaneously )
Dress Socks ( 15 pairs )
White socks ( 10 pairs )
Boxers ( 15 )
Underwear ( 10 )
Track Pants ( three at a time )

As far as detergent goes, I find it best to fill the tub with water halfway first, then pour the detergent, softener and / or bleach, set the timer to max to evenly mix the soap/bleach, then toss in the clothing one at a time. Invest in a small plastic bucket to fill the tub as the rinse tube is too narrow and takes too long to fill the tub.

I purchased this little washer after reviewing several brands in this category. This one, as far as I have seen, is VERY similar to the PANDA brand but about $20+ cheaper. I live in a studio apartment so i don't have the space for a large machine and I am not allowed to monkey with the plumbing. I have to say, this little guy has helped me keep my laundry in check,it holds quite alot and everything comes pretty much as clean and fresh as conventional washers with the ease of being able to do laundry at midnight if I want to. There is a little bit of a learning curve (how much water to put, load size)but after a few washes, you get the hang of it. It can hold two large bath towels and some small pieces (socks,underwear) or 2-3 pants and a couple of tops and smalls in one load. You want to put a sufficient amount of water and not overload or the agitator wont be able to do its job.It does have a hose to fill it from sink but I just use a bucket-it is quicker.There are several videos on YouTube for the similar PANDA brand,so you can see how this machine works. You definitely want to get a spin dryer to go with this (the Laundry Alternative has some portable ones at reasonable prices)as clothing is sopping wet when it is done. Overall,this works as I expected and is worth the price--it ultimately pays for itself in time and money if you normally go to the coin-o-mat.

I love this thing! It's small, fits under my sink and keeps me from laundry hell weekly. Definitely worth the money to keep your tanks, socks and other small items clean without having to go anywhere.

Only thing I don't like is the flimsy hose it comes with to attach to the sink... invest a couple of dollars at the hardware store and buy another one.
