Re: Cheap portable washing machine

Many years ago in the navy junior sailors washed their clothes in gavanised rubbish bins and used an agitator we called a pogo stick. Made of stainless steel with a copper cone on the end. These days just buy one off eBay.

Re: Cheap portable washing machine

ours is the $120 twin washer/dryer. bought in 2009 and still going strong. We live permanently on our boat. The only thing I had to replace are the rubber shock absorbers on the spin dryer. Replaced them with a piece of hose, good as new! Easy to move outside, as very light.

Yeah, I'm doing that now.

I see Dorm units for under $200, I just want to know if they work.

I have other uses for the plumber's friend.
