Sometimes you just have to wash some clothes, but you don’t have the ability to do so. Maybe your washing machine is broken. Maybe the power is out. Maybe you’re traveling and you’re not wanting to pay for the price of a trip to the laundromat for just a few things. Either way, a company called Yirego has come up with a $129 solution to the problem. The Drumi is a power-free washing machine powered by the foot, not the cord.
Of course, the machine isn’t going to replace your full-sized washing machine, but if you have access to soap and clean water and some time to dedicate to stepping on a foot pedal for awhile, then you’ll have six or seven pieces of clean laundry once you hand the stuff out to dry. But the Drumi functions as both a washer and a spin-cycle to drain excess water out of the clothes. If you’re a traveler, this seems like a really interesting investment that would fit pretty well in the back of a car or in a trunk for traveling purposes.
