This Pedal Powered Washer / Dryer Costs $40 & Uses No Electricity...

Backyard Solar Power Revolution...

From creators Alex Cabunoc and Ji A You, the GiraDora pedal-powered washing machine can spin wash and dry clothes in a fraction of the time it takes to do it by hand.

People in areas of the world without access to electricity traditionally wash their clothes by hand, spending up to six hours a day, 3 to 5 times a week.  These hours are spent hunched over, handling moldy clothes and repetitively wringing clothes, leading to a myriad of health problems…

This push-pedal powered machine changes all that.  Soap, water and clothing are added to the bucket, which is sealed with a lid that functions as a cushioned seat.  The materials are spun at high speeds by leveraging the spring-loaded pedal, making a tedious job easy and even allowing people to start laundry businesses by washing loads at a time…

This is a genius inception of a simple machine. Check it out in the video below…

    Brendon Stretten doesn’t look like it. They have a post on their Facebook from a couple years ago saying they’re still testing/developing.

Alex Johnny Mike cool idea

I keep seeing this shared but no information anywhere on where to get one – any ideas anyone?

    Have you tried Google? Wonder Washer.

    Reply

Great idea. Australian supplier?

I have a similar one—called the Wonder Washer and you crank it by habd. I also have a separate spinner that uses electricity and spins the clothes nearly dry. I am single and have been using these for 3 yrs. I can get 6 loads done in a hour and a half. I ordered mine on line. Together the pair cost 125.00 well worth it. No laundromats.

Pretty good. If you are already using an exercise bike then you may as well do this.

Perfect for camping. When the kids say there’s nothing to do, you give them this lol.

And will keep people in shape… hummmmm

Great idea for off grid living as well

Still like my $40 industrial mop bucket. Adgitate clothes with a wash plunger, rinse then squeeze out excess water in ringer portion. Solar dry.

Looks like an over-sized salad spinner.

So tired of articles like this with no information about how to purchase the product.

Mine is an industrial mop bucket from hardware section in box store. Adjitate with clothes plunger. Take excess water out in mop wringer area. Solar dry. $40. Place water used on garden.

Reply

    Could you tell me a little more about your system?
    What soap do you use that’s garden friendly? Also, do you get great results with the clothes plunger? Does it take a lot of water to rinse your clothes? How much of a time investment is it?
    This sounds like a great way to tackle some laundry…

    Got my bucket from local box store. Clothes plunger from Emergency Essentials. I haven’t used laundry detergent in Years. I use Dawn Dish det original. (Even in washing machines). Easy to prespot and most detergents are now low suds for enviroment. Fill bucket with one gal hot water (or more) and add additional amount desired per amount to cover clothing. After washing i place water in 5 gal bucket (diy store) or buckets that have spout for easy poor. This detergent is good-/recommended for bug control for veg flower & small AG plots. You can presoak soak or plunge as long as you want. If you have children it is good to involve them in chores. I love clothes dried on line especially linens and towels. BTW towels are more absorbent without fab softener. I use an aluminum dryer rack indoors they last longer unless you upgrade to the expensive wood ones. I hang some clothes on hangers to dry indoors and out. (With clothes pins between hangers to keep them from sliding on line and this takes up less line space. Jeans i hang upside down allowing waist area to get more of a breeze. I only own 1 load of clothing. 2 sets sheets 4-5 bath towels 3 kitchen towels. I never every dispose of clothing….care to know how i recycle them?.

    Also..summer season place soapy water in small plastic pool, presoak children or pets?

    Reply

    Wow that was quick! How did you get it dropped off in the end? 🙂

    Reply

    The Plankville guys sorted it out, took two trucks to haul it out of the steep driveway at the old place. Looking forward to being able to work on it again!

    Reply

    Oh awesome! Yeah I’m looking forward to seeing it in place 🙂 You’ll be able to position your veg patches now, just in time! Probably got some organic seeds you can have to get started.

    Reply

    Ah man that would be fantastic! Yeah that’s at the top of my mind- need to make that planter box ASAP. Mind if I steal some of the ‘good dirt’ from the paddock? 😀

    Reply

    Of course you can, atleast it only needs to go downhill this time hehe. If I’m about I’ll give you a hand and return the favour 😉

    Reply

    haha awesome, thanks man! Yeah good point… I’ll try get some wood cut up for that box this avo!

Yes but does it tear the clothing up

Reply

Where is this available

Reply

This has been doing the rounds for a long time. No release date/ patent pending…. Its not $40 as its not for sale yet!

Reply

But CAN you set the washer
& go to the the local pub ! ? !

NO !

Reply

Unfortunately not available.

Reply

You continue to share this. But their Facebook was last updated in 2015 and there doesn’t seem to be new information. Pretty sure it’s a dead product.

Reply

Of all the important things to share…..

They break rather quickly. SIck of people making stuff out of crap plastic, go make one out of stainless steel instead, pay a bit more so lasts a lot longer.

Reply

    Do you own one? Because even on their website, they’ve not posted since April of 2015 and say it’s not available to the public yet. I can’t even find anyone selling them. Do you know where to buy them? Or is your comment nothing but speculation?

    Make your own steel one

Wow I’d be exhausted trying to operate this in order to wash five people’s clothes. Fine if you’re an individual, but not if you have a family!!

I think I’d have to pass on this one too, unless I happen to have a Usain Bolt in the house. ??

Judith, rather than being tired, be inventive…get them helping. They can peddle while they X Box…They can peddle whilst they watch TV…

I’d love one of these! Unfortunately I can’t find them for sale and on their fb page, they’ve not posted since spring of 2015. Are they available to purchase anywhere currently?

Reply

I thought that was a wine bottle chilling in the center (before I read the heading) ??

Reply

I would need one big enough to put a full sized comforter in…..

And you’d get some exercise…

Yup , I can see them soccer moms peddling away, to save the environment, while sipping on bottles water .
