About the revolutionary WonderWash
A hand-powered, portable washer that can clean your clothes in a flash, the WonderWash is the next generation in green, cleaner laundry alternatives. And thanks to its compact design, it’s an ideal laundry solution for apartments, campers, single people, RV’s, mobile homes, cabins, and anyone who frequently washes small loads.
If you’re looking for a highly portable, hand operated washing machine that’s economical, compact and leaves your clothes sparkling clean, Then the amazing WonderWash is just what you need.
Weighing in at under 6 lbs., pound for pound this hand crank washing machine has a much larger capacity than anything else on the market, when you consider electric washers can weigh up to 50 lbs. and take up much more space.
- Cleans laundry in 1 to 2 minutes
- Pays for itself within 2 months
- Fully portable, no hookup required
- Gentler on clothes. Ideal for delicates
- Brand new, patent-pending lid snaps on and off in one motion
The gentler way to clean clothes
The WonderWash’s design means it’s much gentler on clothes, and unlike some electric mini washers, does not have an agitator that can snag, tear and rip your clothes. As a result your favorite wardrobe items will retain their look and feel – and last you longer.
Designed to last
With no motor or internal moving parts, The WonderWash is built to last much longer than electric washing machines that are developed for markets with extreme price competition and low labor costs. Plus, over the years we have introduced a range of functional and mechanical improvements to maximize the machine’s life cycle.

I've had the Wonderwash for about a week now and I've done laundry every other day. It's so quick and easy that I start it while waiting for my coffee to brew, let it drain while I make breakfast, do a rinse run while my eggs finish cooking, plate up my food while it drains, rinse one more time, and eat my meal while it drains the final time. It doesn't even need that final rinse, I'm just picky.
It is absolutely perfect for my scrubs. I can wash and hang a couple of uniforms every couple of days and never run out again. No more waiting for the laundry room in my apartment to have a free machine.
I've converted a closet into a make shift drying area with dollarstore plastic drop cloth, clothesline, and clothespins.
This machine has successfully washed scrubs, delicate, jeans, workout clothes, towels, sheets, and tonight I ran my tennis shoes through it! The absolute success of it, across the board, has me writing this review while it drains.
The machine is almost entirely plastic so it is super light weight. It snaps together easily for use. It uses very little water and detergent. Best of all, it really cleans.
When not in use, I wipe the drum dry and stash it in the same closet I use to hang clothes. This is a must have for travel nurses. No more hunting for open laundromats at 2am, or checking the facilities machines every hour hoping to get some laundry done.
I see this being great for camping too. I can't wait to take it on a trip. For now, it certainly sees enough use. Love love love this.
TIPS AND TRICKS (Because I can find a dozen reviews and very little advice)
°Add water and soap before clothes.
Keep a hand towel nearby for inevitable dribbles.
°If using hot water, pressure builds up (that's a feature, not a bug!) and sometimes the lid will start to leak. After a few turns, release the lid, lock it back down, and keep going. You may have to do this a couple times based upon how hot the water is.
°This is where that hand towel comes in. Give the drum a quick wipe to reduce splatter.
°Use a permanent marker to indicate the grooves on the drainage tube (see picture). This saves you the messy fumble of trying to line it up while water leaks everywhere.
°Use less water to rinse than you did to wash. The clothes are already wet, and too much water causes the unit to wobble and thud loudly when it is turned. I have found that my rinse cycles take about half the water of my wash cycle.
°Wash with hot and rinse with cold to save the "lid dribbles" when you don't need them!
I rinse twice. After my wash, I add a spoonful of fabric softener to the first rinse, and plain water to my second. My clothes smell fantastic.
°If you are line or coat-hanger-drying indoors, set up a fan to decrease your drying time exponentially. Also, it makes the whole room smell like clean laundry which is awesome!
°Worried you're not rinsing out all the soap? With dry hands, rub your washed clothes between your fingers and then rub your fingers together. If they feel slippery rather than just wet, rinse again. And stop using so much soap, jeez.
Hope that helps.
If you spin it slowly so the clothes drop from top to bottom each revolution, the clothes are slammed down through the hot soapy water 60 times per minute. So two minutes of cranking slams them through the water 120 times and they come out sparkling clean.
If you spin it faster, centrifugal force keeps the clothes at one end of the washer, and you end up with wet, dirty clothes.
I love mine!
People ask, "does it get your clothes clean, though?" Weirdly, it does. I always used cold water because I just prefer cold water for washing clothes. I never had any issues with getting stuff clean.
The next question they always ask is, "ok, but how much stuff can you actually put in there?" A LOT, actually. Think of a regular-sized washing machine. It's about half of that capacity. I could put any one of the following in the machine as a full load:
* 4-5 pair of jeans
* 7-8 regular-weight tops (not like sweaters)
* a week of socks, bras, and underwear
* 10 pair of PJs
I'm a plus-sized woman, so it's not like the clothes are Tinkerbell-sized.
I used the machine with and without the spin dryer that LA also sells. You can totally use this machine without the dryer. If you're on the fence, just buy the washer and think about it for a while. But I'll tell you this: if you get both, you won't regret it. Get the pink Ninja one and you will be happy, happy, happy.
