Laundry Techniques for low resource usage environments Overview:

Example Techniques:

  • Pressure-based: (or build your own sturdier better design). This device will clean cotton quickly without agitation because it uses pressure to force the detergent into the fabric using a sealed vessel and hand pump. This is the same principle the above plunger device works on. It is quicker with warm water, though warm water is not required.
  • Efficient commercial front-loading, or European style top loading models, used with line drying.
