We’re not sure about you, but when we see “hand wash only” on a clothing label, we cringe. There’s just something about laboring over a sink that screams 19th century to us. That’s why Yirego’s Drumi off-grid portable washing machine caught our eye.

This is an electricity-free device that uses a pedal to wash and spin-dry your clothes. It’s designed for small loads, taking just about five minutes to rinse your delicates clean, then letting you drain the dirty water with the push of a button. It’s portable, lightweight, and there’s no energy costs whatsoever. With the potential to be made out of 40% recycled material, Drumi also boasts an extremely low environmental impact. Plus you can work those calf muscles too. [Purchase]
