This non-electric washing machine was developed for use in third world countries and meant to be sold for a retail cost of around $40. To save money, it was originally designed to use a standard drink cooler as the outside layer. The basic inside design is like a huge salad spinner.
You may be thinking this isn’t a new idea, there is already a product out there called the Wonder Washer. This product is quite an improvement over the Wonder Washer – which, by the way, retails for about twice the cost of the Gira Dora. With the Wonder Washer, you have to drain off as much water as possible after washing then wring the clothes out. Wringing clothes out could be next to impossible for someone with arthritis and it also tends to make the clothes wrinkled, whereas spinning the water out of them gets more water out and causes less wrinkles.
If they ever get these on the market, they would be great for camping or an extended power outage at the house. You can find out some more about it at this link, but there seems to be absolutely zero trace of how to actually purchase one of these anywhere on the internet. If you find somewhere that actually carries the Gira Dora, please let us know.
