Run the washer / washing machine

Run the washer
Run the washer

Women in less-developed African nations are burdened with excessive house chores, especially laundry. It is time-consuming hard labor. This is an efficient manual washing device that can free some hours for the women living in an area with inadequate supplies of electricity. Install this equipment at the side of water sources and put laundries inside the drum. Hold the handle and roll the drum with feet. Then it works as a motored washing machine: by using the head to clean the laundry.
