Foot-powered washing machine available to pre-order

Yirego Drumi has designed and created a foot-powered washing machine that’s only 22 inches tall. The gadget can hold 2.26kg, which is the equivalent of six t-shirts or one pair of jeans and is ideal for travelling or small living spaces.

The tiny washing machine requires 10 litres of water – five litres are needed for washing the load, and five litres are needed for rinsing the load. It also needs to be emptied over a bathtub, or outside.

The Drumi will cost buyers $229 to pre-order and the company are aiming to deliver the product to customers in autumn 2016.
