DIY "Power Down" Laundry Machine


This low-cost and efficient manual laundry machine was originally designed to help out people in developing nations. Chances are that you wont find yourself in a situation where you need to build your own laundry machine and run it without electricity. The design is extremely clever and can be used for camping, a cabin without electricity, or I suppose for just reducing your environmental impact or lowering your utility bills. Then again, you never know when the power might be out for more than a day or two so it pays to consider how you would address your need for clean clothes before you find yourself needing such an alternative.
