It's true that washing machines are great to have around when you have a big family, but there are a lot of people for whom something a lot smaller would make a lot of sense. It's true that the age-old custom of spending a night at the laundromat still holds, but this small washing machine is just nice to have around.
It's also true that a lot of places have laundry rooms, which are great to use, but having a small washing machine is kind of neat. It's perfect to use in smaller homes and spaces. We find that it's a great size and using something this compact is also eco-friendly, since a lot of people don't always have a full load to wash.
The Clatronic model weighs 15.4 lbs and it's suited for smaller loads and laundry that needs to be washed separately (they also offer a dishwasher designed for small spaces). It's also good to use with outdoor gear. The Mini Washer from Clatronic (MWA 3101) is supposed to eliminate tedious hand washing and can also be taken along on travels. While we don't think that anything but hand washing is good for certain delicate clothes, we also don't think that this little washing machine is suited for travel. However, it is an interesting alternative to renters and people who don't have easy access to a washing machine.
It's got a 13L capacity and only costs $60, making it a sensible option for small space dwellers on a budget. It's even more interesting because of the price.
