Have you been searching for a pedal-powered washer? Alex Cabunoc and Ji A designed the GiraDora, an non-eclectic, combination washer and spin-dryer that is powered by a foot pedal. Originally intended for those in developing countries who lack the funds for expensive washing machines, now the $40 GiraDora pedal-powered washer is in demand in many developed countries by homesteaders, survivalists, and families living off the grid.
To use the pedal-powered washer, place a load of laundry in the tub with soap and water, then close the lid which acts as a seat. Using the foot pedal, pump the foot to agitate, clean, rinse, and spin-dry your clothes.
Pedal-Powered Washer Benefits:
– Ergonomic Design
– More Efficient Washing
– Saves Time
Perhaps the best benefit of the pedal-powered washer over hand washing is that reduces the overall time of doing a load of laundry while drastically alleviating back and wrist strain most associated with hand washing.
Another advantage of the GiraDora pedal-powered washer is its efficient use of water. Compared to hand washing, 1/3 less water is used, plus you can easily capture the wash water for reuse.
Currently, the GiraDora pedal-powered washer is patent pending. GiraDora is completing development and plans to bring the washer market soon. The company release periodic updates on their Facebook channel.
