Here in NYC having a washer dryer in your apartment is the definition of “making it”. Sad we know, but true. As New Yorkers, we give up a lot of modern amenities to live in the city we love. If you are one of them, this blog post will change your life. If you are a normal citizen living anywhere else in the western world, you probably have a washer/dryer in your home but may struggle to care for your handwash or delicate garments. This machine is for you too. Here’s the most sustainable washing machine that’s gentle on your clothes and the planet.
Introducing The Gentlewasher
Gentlewasher is a non-electric, non-complicated, plug and play washing machine that can fit into any apartment and finish your laundry in 5 minutes. It’s designed for gentle, hand wash garments, however it can tackle anything you throw at it, so if you wish to replace trips to the laundromat with cozy couch time, and stop bribing the bodega guy for quarters, go for it. I know we sure did!

“Hand” washed laundry in 5 minutes with no mess, no soapy hands, no splashes to clean up afterwards!
The Total Package

Reduced water usage by 8-35 gallons!
As the team grows through their high end washer in the western world, they will be developing an affordable option for the billions of people, primarily women, who spend hours each day doing laundry in developing nations. Even though the washing machine was invented at least a century ago, 5 billion people still don’t have access to it (only 2 billion do). With this extra time back they can start a business, go back to school, and better care for their families.
