Discover a new way to wash your personal delicate. This
design challenges the public laundry experience as well as solves the hand
wash-only complication of delicate garments. With the potential to be made out
of 40% recycled material, YiREGO’s foot-powered washer and spin-dryer creates a
sustainable solution with low environmental impact, saving you time, energy,
and money. It is not only more hygienic than public laundromats, but also a
fraction of the time.
Beyond travel, households may need backup washing aid
in times of power outages; some people may just feel energy-conscious enough to
use it as an in-between washer to reduce the carbon footprint. (The company
said the washing machine uses 80 percent less water and detergent as a regular
washing machine cycle.) Yet another user base might be dorm students and city
bedsitter residents where very spare change, lost smart cards, minimal time and
access to neighborhood self-service laundry facilities might not be so easy for
a once-a-week laundry day.
Instead of hunting for a power outlet, forget about it.
You power up the washer by stepping on a foot pedal. The washer can accommodate
about six to seven items at a go. According to its makers, “It takes
approximately one to three minutes for a washing cycle and an additional one to
two minutes for a rinse cycle, depending on the size of the load and how much
water has been added.” The machine holds up to five liters of water at
once; the cleaning process takes ten liters of water—five for the wash and five
for the rinse. The company said the lid of the Drumi can be used as a way to
measure and add water; a push button allows for water drainage.
Jenny McGrath, home editor at Digital Trends, walked
readers through the entire process. She said “you lift the plastic lid,
add clothes to the drum, along with five liters of water. Close the lid and add
the detergent to it. Pump the pedal for two minutes, then push the button to
empty the soapy water. Add another five liters of water, pump the pedal for
another two minutes, release the water, and then pump for an additional minute
to act as a ‘spin cycle.’ The pumping motion turns the rounded drum, tumbling
the clothes inside.”
A note on the company’s site says, “We would like to extend our one
time introductory pre-order price of $129.This offer will end at 12:00AM on
June 29, 2015, before we finally launch our crowd-funding campaign.”
Estimated delivery is July 2016 with free shipping in Ontario and America-wide
shipping for $40. 
They also said they were on their way to accept
international orders. They suggested subscribing to their mailing list for
updates. Toronto-based Yirego describes itself as a household design company.
Its promoted niche is that it focuses on eco-friendly household products. Its
goal is “to use as little energy as possible both during the manufacturing
process and when our products are being used in your home.”
