Back in the days when I was cloth diapering, I had actually considered getting one of these eco-friendly laundry washers to use just for my cloth diapers. For whatever reason, I just never went through with it (I think I was nearing the end of diapering days). But today my friend Kristie from Saving Dollars and Sense told me about this deal after seeing me talk about laundry all last week.
What is a Portable Eco-Friendly Laundry Washing Machine?
It is a portable washing machine that is ideal for small loads, and uses zero electricity. It also uses a minimal amount of water. It is small enough to fit under the sink, use for camping, in dorm rooms, for cloth diaper users, and apparently does an amazing job at getting small loads clean.
Can you use your homemade laundry detergent in a portable washing machine?
Why yes you can! Be sure to check out my homemade laundry soap recipe, so that you can make your own and save lots of money! I just ordered my own and can’t wait to try it out. I’m hoping it I can use it regularly for smaller “as-needed” loads, and for when we go camping (’cause ya’ll know I like my camping!).
Plum District has this Portable, Environmentally Friendly Washing Machine for only $69. Through the rest of the day today you can use coupon code LaborDay2012 to take an additional 20% off, making it only $55. And yes, I just snagged me one. I’ll let you all know how it works!
