Re: WonderWash non-electric counter top washer (+ spin machi

I don't even remember how I discovered the WonderWash anymore. Though I bless the day I did! The way I wash with it is I alternate the direction I spin it: Four turns one way, four turns the other way, repeat, repeat. I'm under the self imposed illusion that doing so reduces the 'packing' of the lau...

Re: WonderWash non-electric counter top washer (+ spin machi

It's kind of a freaky coincidence, but I was at my local Goodwill today and they had a WonderWash for 5 bucks. It looked like it's never been used. Normally I wouldn't have bought it, especially since I was on my motorcycle at the time. But this thread piqued my interest. I'm going to give it test ...

Re: WonderWash non-electric counter top washer (+ spin machi

Heyyy, there are more posters here talking about this dandy little washer. <fist pump> Yes! I've been using mine for several years now. But recently I'd been thinking I needed to talk with others using it and get tips on how to be more efficient and tips on washing better. Hence this thread. And now...

Re: WonderWash non-electric counter top washer (+ spin machi

Rinsing in this thing can be hard but we noticed that if you skip the regular detergent and use liquid Castile soap, it isn't as bad. Just don't use a ton. oooooooo - I have a tip on that!! I'll get back to it later because I 'need' to talk about lint and pipes that I mentioned in the second post b...

Re: WonderWash non-electric counter top washer (+ spin machi

You can successfully clean multiple articles of clothing, but just be careful not to overload. How would I recognize I'm overloading the WW? By weight? space/clothes ratio in the tub. You need a ample space for it to clean properly. It should spin easily ZP. If the clothing is thudding around in th...

Re: WonderWash non-electric counter top washer (+ spin machi

You can successfully clean multiple articles of clothing, but just be careful not to overload. See, that's why I'm wanting (needing) to 'talk' with other WonderWash users. I need to ask questions. I want to hear what & how other WW users do. Like right now...... How would I recognize I'm overloadin...

Re: WonderWash non-electric counter top washer (+ spin machi

I, myself, still have trust issues with the WonderWash. :lol: *I* seem to be unreasonably resistant to the idea that I could get anything clean if I put more than a few loose items in it. I think I am wrong. I 'think' I am causing myself unnecessary work by making my loads extra small. I 'think' tha...

Re: WonderWash non-electric counter top washer (+ spin machi

First: I love this washer! Second: This is NOT the 'bed of roses' washer lots of YouTube videos will lead you to believe it is. Third: There is something NO videos are showing. This washer IS a clear and present danger for 'clogging' pipes. (but this is easy to to fix and avoid. I'll go into that la...

Re: The Poor Man’s Prepping

Right. Okay. Do we have a thread for Wonder Washers and counter-top spin dryers??? (or any variation there-of?) I can't find one.

If we don't we need one (well, at least 'I' need one) and I'll set it up as long as I'm sure another one isn't already in existence.

Re: The Poor Man’s Prepping

It may sound weird but airlines often give passangers new bags for lightly damaged ones. They cant do anything about them but throw them away a lot of the time. If you go into an airport and ask one of the major airlines if they have any damaged bags, they will often just GIVE them to you. I've fou...
