Drumi: the foot-powered washing machine

By Bob Difley

Foot-powered washing machineThe Drumi is a foot-powered washing machine that uses minimal amounts of water and no electricity. It is compact and easy to maneuver. Each cycle can hold up to five pounds of clothing, or about five to seven personal items (T-shirts, undergarments, baby clothes, etc.). It is not recommended for towels or bed sheets as they are a bit too heavy.

It takes approximately five to ten minutes for a wash, which includes about three minutes for a wash, two minutes for a rinse and one minute for a spin. Each wash uses approximately five to ten liters of water and an equal amount for rinse.

The lid of the Drumi, which will hold five liters, can be used to measure and add water. A twist valve located in the back of the Drumi will drain the water.

Quick and easy to use
Small, compact, and portable
Foot pedal operated, no electricity required
Only takes 5 – 10 minutes per load
Uses 80% less water than standard washing machines
