The average customer rating is 4.4 out of 5 stars by 415 users on the day of this product review. White and light blue Lavario Manual Clothes Washer weighs 14 pounds and measures 19 x 19 x 24 inches for a 5 gallon washing capacity. This patented appliance is claimed to be the best portable clothes washer that is hand powered and it is designed to be used anywhere you want. It gives you a lot of flexibility by being able to use it wherever you want and without needing to be near a power outlet.
You don’t need to be very strong to use this washer as it only needs very little arm strength with the gravity and buoyancy for the down-strokes and up-strokes. The creators of this great little machine tried and tested all the low cost hand powered washers to come up with the best design possible. They also studied the full automatic washers, both the top loaders and front loaders. The continuous flow of water with the “Power Flow technology” is driven through the fabric like you’re washing your clothes on the sail boat.
You will need to use much less detergent and water than the automatic washing machines. You can get your clothes clean in just under twenty minutes. It works with the piston and cylinder approach, with the piston being the basket that has the clothes and the cylinder is the bucket containing the water. And by pushing the handle up and down, any dirt is removed out of your clothes very nicely. It is a low cost manual washer that will pay for itself in just a few weeks as you will not be taking it to the laundromat.
You can use it near or in your shower, bathtub, kitchen sink or any convenient spot for draining water. A garden hose can also be connected if you want to drain the water away from the bathroom, kitchen or room you’re in. The way you use it is you just fill it with water and detergent- 5 gallons for washing, then 5 gallons for rinsing. Put your clothes in and push the handle up and down to get your clothes very clean. You’re advised to use less when you have less loads and when you want to save on water. And you should also use warm water with a temperature more or less equal to your hot shower (50 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit and less than 100°F).
It is great when you only have a few items to wash, like your gym clothes. You can use it for your small loads but not just for socks and undies. You can wash a pair of jeans, a t-shirt, a shirt, socks and underwear in a single load. And you must not overfill the basket as the water will not flow properly through your clothes. As part of Amazon’s return policy you can return this machine within 30 days of your purchase. And you are entitled to Amazon product support free of charge. It is proudly made in the USA, not China and it is thoroughly tested and inspected for quality and functionality before going out on the market. This great manual and portable washer won a few awards for the innovative design and was even a finalist in the Global Innovation Award.
