Last week (Thursday or Friday)I read a posting about a washing machine that was manual. It used very little water and was cranked by hand. The posting stated that it was advertised on TV. Could you please send me that information

The manual washing machine you refer to is the wonderwash and can be ordered from Lehmans, www.lehmans.com

Contact Red Green. He had one on his show last week. Turned it into a fence painter.

I got one from Lehman's a while back. The loads are small (ie two pair of jeans at a time), but it works great. You have to crank it for a couple of minutes, so if you need to do a quick load and don't want to waste water, it comes in handy.

I went to lehmans site and could not find washing machine anywhere. Can anyone point me to the right direction?

Always try to get double use out of something. Since I don't think there will be any great concern about ring-around-the-collar or sparkling white undies, my washing machine replacement is a janitor's bucket with attached mop-squeezer. It'll get the clothes clean if not sparkling.

With only 6 weeks left before rollover I would recommend using www.dogpile.com to search 'wonderwasher' or 'Wonder Washer' find lots of sites that carry this item and then research which can deliver it ASAP. With ordering anything now be careful you will receive it BEFORE it is too late!

I've got one NIB to sell. Unbelievably, I found one at a yard sale just before I received mine from Lehman's, so now I have an extra washer. I was going to return one of them to Lehman's later this week. Just e-mail me if you want it.

May I offer a hint? Save your empty detegent bottles and fill with water. Manual types of washing machines do not need a great deal of soap. The residue in the detergent bottle can be used for numerous washes. Just a humble suggestion!
