Wonder Washer

I have had one of these since the late 1990's and it still works great! Though there is no way to "spin" water out of your clothes, it does get them quite clean. I see the price has only gone up about $2 in all those years as well.

Piece of Garbage

I bought this for my off-the-grid cabin. What a piece of garbage! It took just as much time, more mess, and more hassle to use this than to hand wash every item. Even if you wait for the heat expansion to supposedly make the seal, the seal still leaks. The 'handles' on the sides that supposedly! hold the barrel -- they pop out the moment you put water in. Why? Because it's plastic. There's no structural integrity. The water weight pushes the stand apart, and the barrel falls out. There is NO WAY to rotate the barrel using the stand -- you have to manually man-handle the $#@*(*@! thing, end over end. Add in the hassle of clean-up and multiple water heatings - pourings into the barrel and hefting the full weight yourself to rotate it, and you have a great workout and one of the least efficient ways to wash clothes I've ever had the misfortune to explore.
This has an incredibly poor design. You're better off using an orange 5-gallon bucket with a lid and shaking it a couple times -- that's only $6 vs the $47 for this waste of plastic.
If you actually want to wash your clothes, don't bother with this ridiculously useless 'appliance.' Even hand washing is easier and less hassle!
And to Emergency Essentials -- shame on you for promoting this kind of garbage as a 'useful' appliance. There are better solutions, and I definitely expect better from you. - tkh

Rag Washer

I get my rags dirty with chemicals like wax and oil. This is perfect, because I can put boiling hot water in it, and a little low sud soap in it and do a fantastic job without stinking up the house and making a mess in the clothes washer.

Additional Info
How it works: The principle of operation is based on the physics laws of pressure and heat. The hot water heats the air inside the container. The heated air "tries" to expand but is prevented so by the hermetically sealed container. When the expansion of the air is prevented, the result is that the pressure is built up inside the container. This pressure causes the soap and water to penetrate forcefully through the garment and the stains are released. Turning the container causes the previously released stain to be removed from the garment.
