Redneck Washing Machine

Laundry in Yuma

I bought the washing plunger a year ago so I could wash out a few things by hand and extend the time between trips to the laundromat. It’s been working well but still requires more work than I like. 

The main thing I don’t like is wringing clothes out by hand. I don’t have the strength to twist them to get all the water out and there is always a little soap left after a rinse or two. 

I saw these hand wringers like grandma used to use on Amazon but they were always too expensive. With COVID 19 on the loose, I rationalized that I didn’t want to spend time in laundromats with people fondling virus ridden clothes from washer to washer. This would maybe get me through the dirtiest of days. Go ahead and laugh now.

    Hey, I’ve always thought one of those would be nice to have for any time I wash out something by hand. Sweaters, delicates or just one or two items when I don’t have a whole load but need an item clean today. Good for you to once again figure out a way to “Git er done!”

    Didn’t realize you had posted again.

    I remember somebody using one of those wringers a long time ago, but it was powered.

    Hand cranked, you are not likely to lose a finger.
