The Laundry Pod—a hand-powered washing tub that uses less than 5 gallons of water—had me torn: on the one hand, it's a viable laundry option for small spaces or outdoor lifestyles (camping, boating), it's made from recycled plastic, and easily enables you to reuse greywater; but on the other hand, is it really practical, and does it warrant needing a special contraption for a manual operation that could probably be done in a bathtub?

How hard is it going to be to turn that handle once you have water-soaked clothes in there? I'd like to try it out in person to see how it handles itself.
