Comments Off on The zero-electricity Gentlewasher does the laundry in five minutes flat

We’ve all been there – you need to wash just a few clothing items but you don’t have nearly enough for a full load of laundry . The gentlewasher offers a solution, washing clothes in five minutes with less water than washing machines and zero electricity . The hand-powered device can wash up to 12 T-shirts or eight dresses at a time, and it uses around 4.7 gallons of water – compare that to 13 gallons for an Energy Star washing machine, or 40 gallons for an older model washing machine. Need to wash delicates in a hurry? The gentlewasher makes hand-washing clothes a breeze. It’s easy to use: attach a water hose, put in clothes and a teaspoon of detergent, and start turning. After a two-minute wash cycle and two-minute rinse cycle, the garments are ready to hang-dry. The ergonomic handle ensures you won’t get too tired during the process.

The company says that their product is the most sustainable and gentlest washing device for apparel ever. The company, based in the Netherlands, says results are “as good as a front-loading machine.” The gentlewasher is designed for clothes that should be washed by hand, but it can be used for all types of garments. It’s especially useful for people on the road – such as those traveling in an RV or camping. And it could even come in handy in between laundry loads or for cutting down trips to the laundromat for those living in tiny city apartments. The company says their mission is to “develop an affordable washing device for people around the world,” as five billion people worldwide still don’t have access to washing machines and must spend hours washing clothes. You can buy a gentlewasher online for $269. + gentlewasher Images courtesy of gentlewasher

Comments Off on Green and Clean: Eco-Friendly Laundry Products

There’s really nothing like the fresh scent of newly washed laundry, so it’s too bad that many of the products we use to get our clothes clean are downright scary. Many detergents are petroleum-based and can contain a whole slew of potentially toxic chemicals , and most dryer sheets are made with tallow (or other animal fat). While some companies can voluntarily tell consumers what’s in their products, technically they’re not required to do so even if consumers ask. So, how do you choose the best eco-friendly laundry products from a shelf that is increasingly laden with new, eco-friendly products? That’s why we’re here to help: check out a few of our favorites below!
