The presales have started for Drumi, the entirely ecological pedal washing machine

He is about to end up run over, his mother saves him

Remember Drumi, the entirely ecological pedal washing machine made by the Canadian company Yirego? Well, the manufacturers announce that the washing machine is now on presale and they aim to supply it for fall 2016.

Large 22 inches, Drumi is a manually powered washing machine for small loads of laundry (approx.2,26 kg). The small size (50 x 45 x 50 cm) and the lightness (9 kg) make it the ideal solution for small apartments or campers and for travel in tents.

Its size, therefore, is really reduced to a minimum, so much so that it can fit perfectly into the trunk of the car together with all the rest of the camping equipment, and allows you to wash up to seven items without the minimum expenditure of energy.

“Drumi creates a sustainable solution with a low environmental impact, saving time, energy and money and it is also more hygienic than public laundries”, say from Yirego.

HOW IT WORKS - The system is based on a simple mechanism: by pressing on the pedal, a basket containing the items is rotated through soap and water. Once the “wash cycle” is complete, the water can be drained using a valve activated by a button. That's all: the more you pedal (and even exercise!) The more you activate a sort of do-it-yourself spin cycle and eliminate excess water.

Nice is not it? And for those who do not want to invest 229 dollars, this model costs so much, here you will find many ideas to build an off grid washing machine by yourself.
