Tips for Using the Hand Washer
- Correct amount of water for the clothes
- Correct amount of laundry soap/detergent and/or stain remover
Correct Amount of Water
The Hand Washer uses less water than a traditional washing machine to clean clothes. Depending on the size of the items to wash, determines the amount of water to use. The clothes should float freely in the water. This will allow for good agitation by the Hand Washer to push and pull water through the fabric. Too many times people try to wash too many clothes at one time, thinking they are saving time. The reality is that is still takes the same amount of time, if not longer with sometimes poor cleaning results. With the Hand Washer, washing less clothes for a shorter period of time, with good agitation, gets clothes cleaner and faster than trying to wash to many at a time.
Correct Amount of Soap/Detergent for the Clothes
With less water, means you can use less detergent with the same amount of concentration in the water for cleaning. Detergent/soap acts as a dirt and stain dissolver and increased detergent or stain remover for heavy stains produces better cleaning results - the concentrated detergent or stain remover is able to focus on a specific area longer. Products such as Oxiclean, white distilled vinegar or washing soda with hydrogen peroxide help lift stains in the washing process.
Ideally, letting the clothes soak a little in the water and detergent helps to activate the cleaning action as well. As mentions above, using the correct amount of water helps to trap the dirt/oil/grease from the clothing in the water with a chemical reaction from the ingredients of the detergent - not enough water does not let the dirt/oil/grease to be suspended in the water.
Typically about 1-2 teaspoons of detergent is needed to clean normal clothes ( more and/or stain remover for heavily soiled clothes). If a little more detergent is used, that's not a problem as the Breathing Mobile Washer actually pulls out residue detergent very effectively in the rinse process.
Rinsing the clothes is similar to the washing process - enough water needs to be used so the clothes float freely. This will allow the agitation from the Breathing Mobile Washer to pull residual detergent from the clothes leaving them clean and fresh. It's always better to use a little more water or wash fewer clothes at a time.
This is where the Hand Washer Shines!! Based on the uniquely engineered design, the Hand Washer when used with the proper amount of water and detergent will actually provide better agitation action than a traditional top load electric washer and can easily be compared to High Efficiency front load washers - compare the agitation for yourself. Because the agitation process is so intense with the Hand Washer, less agitation time is needed for equal if not better results than traditional washing machines. Generally about 30 seconds to 1 minute of good agitation is all that is needed for most clothes - a little longer for more heavily soiled clothes.
You can actually feel the water being pushed through the clothes and pulled through the clothes, while creating the "Breathing" action from the washer - this produces cleaning results!
