Portable washing machines are excellent household tools for people with small homes that are unsuitable for large bulky machines. However, while portable machines save you much space, water and especially electricity, not every one of us are used to non-electrical washing machines.
Portable washing machines are usually unpowered, or they are marginally powered for simple wash functions. Hand crank machines are especially good news for your electrical bills, but it can be quite the hassle if you’re not one who likes taking to physical work.
Luckily, there are portable models which are fully powered by electricity. These portable machines are not as flexible as unpowered models since they need to be fully fastened to your faucet. But they are still considered portable since you can move them around from one faucet to another, except that you’ll probably move it around less often since it takes more effort to do so.
Electric machines, like their counterparts, use a lot less water than common washing machines and less detergent as well. They are suitable for people who need to do a little more laundry than typical hand crank models are designed for, but yet not enough laundry to call for a full sized washing machine.
While electrical washing machines are somewhat more advanced than unpowered models, they don’t normally have spin cycles or drying cycles. They may wash faster and easier mechanically, but it still takes separate dryers to achieve the dryness that full sized washing machines are capable of.
You will need to buy an extra spinner or dryer to complete washing your laundry. This is not a big issue since portable spinner and dryers are relatively small units that will not affect the flexibility of your portable washing machine. Together, the dryer and the portable machine are still smaller than a full sized machine. Moreover, they are also cheaper than a full sized machine.
If you’re looking for environmentally friendly, small and flexible washing machines, but aren’t too prepared to do hard physical work, try electrical portable washing machines.
