When the power goes out, there's no way to wash dirty laundry unless you have the equipment to do it by hand. During a blizzard, hurricane, or
other period of extreme weather, you might have to go without electricity for up to two weeks at a time. Lake City's zinc plated rustproof steel clothes hand wringer is called the Best Hand Wringer for a reason, and once you give it a try, you'll be tempted to ditch your washing machine and dryer.
No Power Required
When you think of washing clothes by hand, you probably imagine people up to their elbows in soapy water. The Best Hand Wringer makes hand washing your laundry completely effortless with a tension knob and hand crank. Simply wash your clothes, rinse them with clean water, and send them through the two rubber rollers a single time.
Clothes dryers use so much electricity that most models don't even qualify for an ENERGY STAR rating, and your dryer is one of the least efficient pieces of equipment in your home. When the power goes out, you're stuck with a 300-pound piece of metal that just takes up
Clothes dry faster with the Best Hand Wringer. A single article of clothing only takes a few seconds to squeeze through, but an electric clothes dryer can take up to an hour to finish a drying cycle. You'll save hours of time every week and up to $150 a year by hand washing your clothes.
Basic Washing Techniques
Learning to hand wash your clothes is a simple process. Simply fill up a metal tub with soap and water, and use your hands or a washboard to scrub dirt and grease off of the fabric. Dip the soapy clothes into a second tub filled with clean water, and rinse off any remaining residue under a sink faucet or hose.
However, you shouldn't twist your clothes and squeeze them dry by hand because you could permanently stretch and tear the fibers. The Best Hand Wringer works by firmly squeezing water out between two soft rubber rollers without stretching the fabric, leaving your clothes as good as new when you hang them up to air dry.
Still want to use your washing machine? Pull your clothes out after the rinse cycle, use the Best Hand Wringer, and hang them on the clothesline. You'll still save plenty of money simply by avoiding your dryer.
Thanks to its stainless steel construction, you'll never have to worry about replacing the Best Hand Wringer. It easily mounts directly onto the side of any metal tub, letting you wring clothes dry without spilling water onto the floor. Depending on your wash tub's thickness, you might have to use thin wood shims to properly secure the metal clamps.
The 12-inch rubber rollers are wide enough to handle clothes of any size, and you can adjust their tension with a large knob conveniently located on top of the assembly. Because the Best Hand Wringer removes twice the water of a washing machine's spin cycle, your clothes will dry in a matter of minutes instead of hours.
Clamps may require wood blocks as shims if using on wash tubs.
