I've done a search with little success --- wondering if anyone has opinions (good or bad) about the small countertop type washing machines for clothes. Seems there are several available --- one does not use electricity, one looks like an egg, another looks like a bucket. Maybe there are more.

Any recommendations?
Any to avoid?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

I purchased a small washing machine that is used for college kids in dorms that has very little space. Looked good really washed closed good. Price was good $129.00. The catch is after the first time my wife used it she said get this thing out of our Motor Home, she washed a load to towels, the only thing it did not have was a spin cycle. She tried to twist the water out of the towels, the more she twisted the mader she got, so I have a new one, for sale. Jim

Apparently you either get a washer with a seperate spin basket or you get you an oldfashioned wringer. http://www.compactappliance.com has several models in their portable washer category. Click on one of the models and then click on "buyer info" tab.

We use a 5 gal. bucket. Just put in the clothes, water, and detergent. Set it in the back of the truck while we are driving. This agitates the wash. When we get where we are going, or when we get in for the evening, we just wring them out and hang them up to dry. One bucket doesn't hold a large wash. But with just the two of us, doing this about every other day will keep us cought up. What I'm trying to figure out now is how to put a spin cycle on the bucket. I may be working on this for a while.
