Top customer reviews
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.
What I love about this machine is it is pretty sturdy, since it withstood a year of my daily use, plus it survived 500 African villagers cranking on it all in ONE day!
If you thought red Georgia clay was hard to get out of clothes, you haven't been to Uganda, east Africa. These villages have no electricity, no paved roads, lots of kids (average family has 7 children) and lots of dirty clothes. Families there LIVE in dirt huts, farm, play, work and have the dirtiest clothes imaginable, yet the WonderWash got load after load of clay and dirt soiled clothing CLEAN! The villagers were amazed, as was I.
I mean after all, my gym stains and smelly, lightly dirty clothes I expected to get clean, but the grime and dirt that rinsed out of the WonderWash when put to a REAL test was stunning. It was SO effective our organization is trying to find a way to get MORE machines to Africa. Why? Because the girls in each family are tasked with washing the family's clothes every morning before leaving for school. If they don't finish the laundry, they must MISS school to do so. WonderWash could CHANGE the world simply by providing the ability to wash clothes fast enough that these girls can do the laundry and get to school on time.
WHY WONDER WASH ROCKS
It's lightweight, yet sturdy. I mean, after all it stood up to the rigors of a hike and trip in the back of an SUV on really rocky, difficult roads to get to an African village! It traveled TO Africa in a plastic tub packed with medical supplies, and survived the airline's handling without a crack or scratch!
It is easy to assemble.
It's durable. More than 500 villagers each had a chance to crank on the handle over the period of ONE DAY as we moved into three separate villages and demonstrated the machine with clothes the villagers brought to us. Kids, men and women of all ages and strengths gave it their best and it kept on working!
It cleans! At one village we received a pair of pants a toddler had soiled himself in, a bloody towel from a health clinic, a pair of men's pants used by a man herding cattle and soiled with manure, and several very delicate, beautiful and colorful women's dresses, plus a large scarf. We washed them ALL in one load and they ALL came out CLEAN! Plus, they smelled GREAT!
I can't say enough GOOD about this machine. I used it in the USA for a year until I got a car and could go to the laundromat where there was also a dryer. The only thing NOT to like about this washing machine is you do have to wring the clothes out and hang them up to dry...not a big deal. It works and for the price there's nothing better! I love it!
