We think it's fair to say that most people use washing machines — perhaps one that's water saving, solar-heated, or portable. Well, if you want to get a workout, take a look at the Squash Wash from Kristin Mueller, an industrial design student at the University of Illinois. It does all the washing by compression (from your hands and feet!) and "salad spinner" technology, and uses very little water and no electricity.
The graphs above pretty much explain how it works! It's made of high-density polyethylene and vinyl (yeah, not ideal) and is small enough to fit in any corner of your house.
What do you think? A viable alternative to regular washing machines?
