i got a hand-crank laundry machine! no quarters needed! it is surprisingly light and yet sturdy, somehow, and shockingly easy to crank. i stick it in the tub when i’m using it and shove it in the linen closet when i’m not. i love this thing already.
i’ve washed two loads so far. it only needs one or two minutes of cranking to wash, and then thirty seconds of cranking to rinse.
That’s amazing! We were wondering if you had onsite laundry the other day, or where the nearest laundromat is. Also, that is a really short amount of time to wash! Such a time saver, and I imagine it is better for the clothes.
How big a load can it do? Could it do sheets or a blanket?
the reviews say sheets definitely yes, blanket probably no. small blankie yes. a cover for a blanket yes.
the laundromat i like to go to is advantage laundry by 7-11 on broadway. because it takes credit card payments via a mobile app. you SCAN A QR CODE to indicate which washers or dryers you want. you can type in the number too but who wants to do that when you can take longer SCANNING A QR CODE!!! i wish i was joking but i’m not. i love qr codes! i am mad at the troll site pictures of ppl using qr codes dot tumblr dot com or whatever that just says this blog has zero posts. hahahaa.
going there is a mixed bag… it gets expensive, and i wait forever to do my laundry. and last time i yelled at a person who was taking peoples’ stuff and someone else told me “i like your spirit. i said that’s a real city girl right there.” i think my big voice surprises people because i look innocent.
anyway with this little thing i’m going to do tiny loads more often. that’s the hope at least. and hanging will take less time too if i do fewer items.
