Design company YiREGO has designed an adorable miniature washing machine that can clean up to six or seven articles of clothing. Known as Drumi, the 22-inch tall washer doesn’t need electricity—you power it using a foot pump. Thanks to its small size, it’s easy to store or take with you on a camping trip.
Drumi solves a number of laundry problems that one might face in their lifetime. It delicately washes “hand-wash only” garments, fits in small spaces like apartments or dorm rooms, and it's light enough to bring along on a camping trip. Best of all, the only power source it needs is a foot.
The compact washer requires about five liters of water, and a scoop of soap to get started. After loading everything in, the foot-pump powers the spin cycle. The process takes about two to five minutes, depending on the size of the load. When everything is clean, the user presses a small green button that releases that water out of the device.
Drumi is currently available for pre-order for $130; campers, college kids, and residents of New York City will have to wait until next July before they can get their hands on the machine. In the meantime, the sink and a bottle of Woolite will have to do.
