Two Pairs Of Unders: Teensy Tabletop Washing Machine

February 5, 2013


This is the $160 Petit Laundry Swoosh from the King Jim Company of Japan. It's a teensy tabletop washing machine that uses just over a gallon of water (and detergent/bleach) to wash up to 250g of clothing in 18-minutes. How much is 250g of clothing? No clue. From the size of the thing though I'd say two t-shirts or four pairs of underwear. Jeans are not an option. "But what about a dryer?" *pointing* It's right there. "The oven?" I suggest using broil. I also suggest not telling your roommates what this thing is so you can have a good laugh when you come home to one of them trying to make tea in your dirty underwear washer.

Thanks to roshan, who caught me throwing all my dirty clothes in the back of a friend's pickup and driving through a car wash. I'm gross, it's true.

    Nobody uses these to wash close. They're used by drug dealers to make hash coins and have been around forever.

  • You can wash jeans or blankets (or any other laundry item) in a bucket and use a *clean* plunger as the agitator. Don't buy a bucket. Someone near you buys kitty litter in a bucket with a built-in hinged lid from Walmart. You can get a plunger at the dollar store. Geez. The money people spend on stuff baffles me.

    It would just be cheaper to modify a blender. How clean do you want your clothes N_a_a_s? Crushed ice or smoothie?

    Or you could just save yourself $160 and hand wash small articles in the damn sink.
