There are so many beautiful inventions…. most of them we take for granted.
A washing machine, for instance. Such a helpful tool!
However, leaving the comforts of a home and the city and with no handy laundromats in the area, what to do? How to solve this potentially time-consuming task of washing laundry while we are on the road?I have been researching different options and have settled on a portable washing machine solution, the Scrubba. It is advertised as the world’s first pocket-sized washing machine.
Scrubba + Water = Clean Laundry
Interesting data to consider:
- Old washers would use between around 150 to 170 liters (40-45 gallons) of water PER LOAD.
- Newer, high efficiency washers use about 53 to 95 liters (14-25 gallons) of water per load. (Source)
- The portable washing machine uses 3-6 liters (0.5 to 1.5 gallons) of water and takes about 3 to 5 minutes per load.
Even if that load is third of the size of a washing machine load, it’s still a tremendous victory in terms of eco-friendliness.
Electricity consumption: 0 (zero)
Additional bonus: Physical workout, though it is minimal
This is how it works:
