When you live in NYC you know what a huge pain it is to do laundry. If you are lucky enough to have machines in your building then maybe this is not for you. But I recall my days in the East village lugging huge bags 2 or 3 blocks to the laundromat and spending the day there guarding my clothing from theft. Now there is Wonder Wash, a hand cranked machine, which is also much greener than a normal washer, and uses less water than hand washing. And at $55 it is well worth the price.
