Laundry by Hand

WonderWasher Tips & Tricks >

  • Add water and soap before clothes. Keep a hand towel nearby for inevitable dribbles.
  • If using hot water, pressure builds up (that’s a feature, not a bug!) and sometimes the lid will start to leak. After a few turns, release the lid, lock it back down, and keep going. You may have to do this a couple times based upon how hot the water is.
  • This is where that hand towel comes in. Give the drum a quick wipe to reduce splatter.
  • Use a permanent marker to indicate the grooves on the drainage tube (see picture). This saves you the messy fumble of trying to line it up while water leaks everywhere.
  • Use less water to rinse than you did to wash. The clothes are already wet, and too much water causes the unit to wobble and thud loudly when it is turned. I have found that my rinse cycles take about half the water of my wash cycle.
  • Wash with hot and rinse with cold to save the “lid dribbles” when you don’t need them! I rinse twice. After my wash, I add a spoonful of fabric softener to the first rinse, and plain water to my second. My clothes smell fantastic.
  • If you are line or coat-hanger-drying indoors, set up a fan to decrease your drying time exponentially. Also, it makes the whole room smell like clean laundry which is awesome!
  • Worried you’re not rinsing out all the soap? With dry hands, rub your washed clothes between your fingers and then rub your fingers together. If they feel slippery rather than just wet, rinse again. And stop using so much soap, jeez.
