    Blue portable washer

    Promising review: "I love this washer! It is so easy to use and sturdier than it looks. I live in a small apartment and hate the coin laundry, so this little gadget is very useful. Instead of putting it on a kitchen counter, I put it in the tub. Also, I do not use the drainpipe, as it is easier to just dump the washed clothes into the tub. The rinse cycle is easy to do in the Wonder Washer. I wash T-shirts, shorts, face masks, hand towels, and lingerie with this gadget as they are easier to wring by hand." —Linda

We go to bed about 3 sometimes 4 a.m. and the lights were still shining brightly into the night. We wanted to see if the rain affected them and I'm happy to report NOT AT ALL! We have the lights going up our driveway on both sides. I’m going to order two more boxes to go in the front of my house for that same reason. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Beautiful finishing touch to our landscape." —Marietta
