Mobile Washer (Hand Operated Washing Machine)

August 19, 2009 | 8 comment(s)

We would like to introduce the new Mobile Washer (Hand Operated Washing Machine). This is a very affordable item to include with your emergency and outdoor supplies. It is very easy to use and gets amazing results!

The Mobile Washer uses a technique of pushing and pulling the water through your clothes, without excess friction (which also reduces the wear on your clothes). This washer uses minimal water and because of the agitation motion, less soap. Use in a bucket (5-gallon suggested), sink or tub. It's also able to rinse your clothes using fresh water.

Mobile Washer Parts

Place the Agitator into the Large Cone

Place the Small Cone on top and screw in the Handle


Assembly Finished

The picture above shows the unique bottom section of the Mobile Washer with the Agitator section. This section allows the water to be pushed and pulled through the clothes with an agitating motion. This is known as the 'direct vacuum effect'.

That is one dirty shirt!

Fill a bucket, sink or bathtub with sufficient water to wash the clothes and add soap according to how dirty the clothing is.

Adding dirty shirt to water

The Mobile Washer is operated by an up and down movement. After a few moments of doing this you will feel a 'sucking' action as water is being pushed and pulled through the clothing (the direct vacuum effect).

Now repeat the up and down movement with the clothing in clean rinse water. Use the same amount of water in order to achieve the necessary vacuum action.

Rinsing shirt in clean rinse water

Squeeze out as much excess water as possible and repeat the rinsing process if necessary. Hang and allow time to dry.

Finished - Looks great!

    Exactly what I was looking for, and at a terrific price. I just placed my order through the emergency essentials website. Thank you very much!

    This is a nice product but can emergency essentials find an inexpensive clothes wringer to help get more water out so clothes dry faster? I have arthritis and just can&#39;t squeeze out much water and the wringers I find online are over $100.

    The Mobile Washer looks interesting! Is there an inexpensive wringer available on your website? Wringing out wet clothes is a pain, literally! LOL! Thanks!

    EBsixT - Unfortunately we don&#39;t have a wringer available at this time.
