This Pedal-Powered Washing Machine Works Without Electricity
If you are thinking about making the shift to living off grid, then you might be looking for a washing machine to wash your clothes easily. This Pedal-Powered Washing Machine Works Without Electricity, and would be perfect for an off grid living situation where you had little to no electricity whatsoever. Or perhaps you live in an apartment complex that has laundry, but you would rather not share laundry machines with strangers, or you don't have access to laundry at all in your building and have to go the laundry mat. Going to the laundry mat not only takes a lot of time but it can cost you more money than doing your laundry at home. It can also be unnerving to have your clothes stolen if you leave them there while a cycle is going through or have them wrecked from the older machines. Plus, if you don't have a vehicle, going to the laundry mat can become a real chore, having to haul all of your clothes on public transit.
Purchasing your own laundry machines for your home or apartment can be expensive too. The average price in Canada for a washing machine and a drying machine can be around a thousand dollars together or more and many apartments don't have laundry hook ups for the water either. If you are off grid, and you don't have the water hook ups or the electricity, you can also run into trouble when trying to find the perfect washing machine to use in your off grid situation. Or some people like to have a washing machine if they go RVing or camping a lot so that they can keep their clothes fresh without having to visit a laundry mat all of the time. This Drumi off grid pedal powered washing machine will be a godsend to so many people who need an affordable, reliable and easy to use washing machine.
