DOLLY TUB / DOLLY TUB

DOLLY TUB
DOLLY TUB

Dolly Tub, a laundry product designed for poor, river-rich areas, dehydrates laundry by pressing a bearing that rotates the bucket. Due to the lack of resources in poor areas, people need to spend a lot of time and energy washing and drying clothes, resulting in serious lumbar diseases. Pressing the center pole to spin the Dolly Tub with a full load of clothes in water greatly reduces laundry effort and waist damage when bending over to wash. Hold the Dolly Tub on the ground and spin the same way after washing to reduce drying time. The Dolly Tub requires no electricity and is cheap to make, making it suitable for use in most poor areas.
