Wonder Washer

Given any thought on how you would take care of dirty  clothes if you could not use your washing machine? Scrub board? Rocks? Or how about a Wonder Washer?

This is getting a lot of airtime right now on some of the preparedness blogs.

One source is beprepared.com, and they state: “The principle of operation is based on the physics laws of pressure and heat. The hot water heats the air inside the container. The heated air "tries" to expand but is prevented so by the hermetically sealed container. When the expansion of the air is prevented, the result is that the pressure is built up inside the container. This pressure causes the soap and water to penetrate forcefully through the garment and the stains are released. Turning the container causes the previously released stain to be removed from the garment.”

  1. What an interesting idea. I love the idea of emergency preparedness as well as self reliance when disaster happens. It's good to know that there are other people out there thinking ahead and making things that will help out in an emergency.
