Breathing Mobile Washer Review and Demonstration


 

Washing your clothes manually doesn’t have to be as difficult as you would think. Watch as MissRandie shows you how with the breathing mobile washer.  As a matter of fact, you can wash your clothes much quicker and more efficiently than even compared to top quality electric washers. The mobile washer works differently than a clothes agitator.  The webbing and the “breathing” holes allow it to push and pull water through the clothes.  This is a much more effective method of washing than using an agitator or washboard and is even safer on your clothes making them last much longer than other washing methods.

Here are just a few benefits of manual washing with the breathing mobile washer

  • Saves power
  • Saves water
  • Faster
  • More efficient
  • Gets Clothes Cleaner
  • Very affordable
  • Great for off grid situations
