Great question. Even with the “delicate” setting, washing machines tend to be rough on clothes. The gentlewasher’s Honeycomb Core™ technology is specifically designed for delicate, or hand-wash only clothing i.e. important items you’d rather not put into a washing machine. The gentlewasher is also great for in-between laundry loads, when you simply need to do a small batch of laundry now, without having to wait for a full hamper.
Our Honeycomb Core ™ drum design is specially engineered to be gentle on delicate items that are meant to be handwashed. However, our customers include outdoor campers and RV owners who wash a variety of clothing on the gentlewasher: t-shirts, pants, and a variety of other textiles in smaller loads. For heavier garments, we recommend washing in smaller quantities and increasing the wash time as needed.
It depends :)
If you have a washing machine available and struggle with delicates and in-between wash loads, then the gentlewasher is a great addition to your laundry arsenal.
If you don't have a washing machine available (e.g. in apartments or small homes, and while camping or in an RV), then the gentlewasher is the perfect alternative to bulky, resource-heavy washing machines.
Its length x height x width is 2.5 x 1.6 x 1.3 (feet) or 77 x 49 x 40 (cm). Big enough for a laundry load of about 10-12 t-shirts, and small enough to be put on a countertop or kitchen table.
Yes - with box and packaging, it's around 27 lbs, and without the box it weighs only 23 lbs - about as heavy as a daschund, or twice as heavy as one gallon of paint.
All kinds of delicate / special care clothing from silk to cotton to cashmere. You can also wash heavier garments, if you see fit, but we recommend washing in smaller quantities and increasing the wash time as needed.
This depends on the kind of clothes you're washing. For very delicate clothes you can fold the garment between a towel, for non-delicate clothes you could go for wringing. Line drying is another option, just be careful your garment does not stretch.
Yes! For several reasons. The gentlewasher is designed for hand-wash only clothes, that generally don't handle drying (high rotation) or hot water. Those 2 steps are therefore not included in the process with the gentlewasher, saving a lot of time. Thanks to the patented Honeycomb Core™ Technology, the mixing of clothes with water and detergent (which facilitates the cleaning process) happens faster than in a normal washing machine. This makes the washing process with the gentlewasher so quick.
The box contains 3 universal adapters, 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch and 1 inch, so that you can connect the hose pipe to any type of faucet.
You can also lift and place directly under a faucet in the tub, for example.
