Off Grid Washing Machines
Here are some options if you don’t have a ton of AC power or a traditional washing machine. You still need your clothes clean and you probably don’t want to wash each one by hand. One of these uses 12 volts off a solar system or vehicle battery the 2nd one is a bit more elegant in that it’s human powered and takes care of you exercise needs while cleaning your clothes at the same time! Any more ideas for cleaning your clothes?
Made from a Honda Windshield Motor and arm assembly. A couple pieces of scrap sheet metal, make a turn table, and you’re ready to wash clothes in your home made poor mans machine. Great for shop rags!
