Also sometimes comes with a manual agitator that doubles as exercise.

we had a similar one on board for 6 years a great investment, cost us £50 (UK) and saved us about £500 or more a year.
You can now buy a front loader version.

Bucket works well with one of these. Collecting rainwater helps too. It fits perfectly in a 5- gal bucket. Notice also the pantie rotisserie.
