Drumi, Yirego, foot-powered washing machine, portable washing machine

Admit it–you’ve been that person who’s gone out and bought new underwear to avoid lugging 40 pounds of dirty clothes down to the laundromat. But now you can avoid this wasteful temptation thanks to a compact, eco-friendly washing machine called Drumi. Plus, it’s foot-powered, so you can burn some calories while watching Netflix.

First spotted by TreeHugger, the machine was created Yirego, a Toronto-based sustainable household design company. It’s electricity-free and low-water and can wash a five-pound load in just five minutes. Of course, this isn’t much (it equates to one pair of jeans or eight pairs of boxers), but it’ll certainly save you from having to wear a bathing suit as undergarments.
